According to some pediatricians, it is best to keep your baby in his cot, until he reaches the age of six months old. This holds for naps both in daytime and during nights. It is considered as safe, especially for the baby. Co-sleeping is never recommended in the following conditions-
- If you or your partner is overweight
- If your baby is born with low birth weight or has been released from the NICU
- If you or your partner is under alcohol, smoking or have taken any medication that makes you drowsy
- Also, don’t allow any elder child of yours to sleep with the newborn.
Well, any of these will work, unless you and your partner agree on it and it works for the baby. Keep in mind the importance of your sleep along with that of your child. Also, don’t forget to sleep on the proper mattress in Ireland for a good night’s sleep.
