Send your little one off to dreamland in a baby crib. This compact and movable bed can be placed next to yours to keep your new arrival close at night. Baby should sleep in their crib until they're six months old or around 15kg. After that, they're ready to move into the nursery. Different cribs have different weight restrictions, so make sure you check this before you buy.
We've got cribs designed with bedside access in mind, with side panels that unzip or slide down. This makes late-night cuddles that little bit easier. Look out for innovative Next2Me cribs by Chicco, which have soft, padded sides that cocoon your little one, making them feel safe. You'll find designs with changeable inclines that help to keep pesky reflux at bay for a sounder night’s sleep. If little one’s restless, a swinging crib can help lull them into a slumber with a gentle motion. Folding styles with travel bags included are ideal for popping in the boot when you're spending a night away from home.
Soft cot mattresses, which are often included and are machine washable, add an essential layer of comfort to a newborn crib. These support your baby’s delicate spine while they snooze. Make your baby cradle even more snuggly with adorable cot bedding, from swaddles and sleeping bags to patterned baby blankets. If you’re still deciding on your nursery theme, go for a versatile white crib that’ll match with everything.
Sleeping in the same room as baby is comforting for you both in those early months. For those nights when baby's a little too bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, find out how to get baby to sleep with our guide.
