I am looking for some reassurance! Our 2 months old DD has outgrown her moses basket. In fact she has probably been too big for a while now (arms touching the sides) but now she is almost too long. We ordered a cot to come yesterday but it failed to come and now wont until the 29th! Are we very bad parents squeezing her into the little basket for a week more? Her back is still straight and everything, it is just the basket a perfect oval around her outstretched body, and her head and feet nearly touch the bottom and top .
We had the same problem a couple of weeks ago. The main problem was she woke more as she moved and her hands hit the sides which woke her up. Otherwise no problem. Your dc will love the cot when it comes.
DS grew out of his Moses basket at 9 weeks. We already had a cot in the nursery but I wasn't ready to move him to his own room, so we bought a travel cot (which we knew we'd need anyway) and had that in our bedroom as the cot we'd bought wouldn't fit in our room. He stayed in that until he was about 4 1/2 months. Plus side is that now he sleeps in travel cots reasonably happily as he's used to them.
