Not a good idea. They go flat very quickly overnight and can get really dangerous for babies.

i wouldn't...have they not got any other usggestions for him? I would either co sleep with him all night or take his travel cot

PhantomOfTheChocolateCakeAvena Mon 27-Oct-08 22:16:12

I sleep on one when I'm at my mums and I'm on the floor in the morning. Please don't. A deep draw perhapse?

Don't do it. An inflatable mattress is obviously not made of breathable materials - it would deflate. It would be dangerous, especially if the weather is warm whilst you're there. Baby could overheat or worse.

smile Just tell them they deflate during the night and if your little one rolls she will be stuck. This is really not a good idea.

im not sure if it would be safe? if hes only just turning over, what if he does turnover and then cant get back again, it could suffocate him

you can get light travel cots that pop up

not too expensive, shop around!

A drawer or the bath even padded with blankets?

Shitemum Mon 27-Oct-08 22:28:28

a drawer makes a perfectly adequate bed for a baby that age.

Lilyloo Mon 27-Oct-08 22:31:01

i would take him in with me or travel cot wouldn't put him in air bed thay too soft even before they deflate imo!

agros have them on offer

They aren't safe for babies,they don't have a flat surface they have dimples usually,and they can cot would give you peace of mind.

If you get the Samsonite cot, I would recommend getting the extra mattress for it from Amazon. We found the mattress that came with it was more like a quilt, not great if the cot was on a hard floor.

the self inflating ones don't usually have dimples. i would happily use one of those.

ohIdoliketobebesidethe Mon 27-Oct-08 22:58:33

Get this - they are like tents with collapsable poles- light and tiny and have inflatable matress and will last til they're out of cots.
phil and ted's travel cot

lisad123 Mon 27-Oct-08 22:59:40

Oh that ones fab, and last longer than the smaller one. My little girl has it when she stays with friend when im working. I always put a quilt at the bottom for extra padding.
