Do we need a crib. Won't a standard cot be ok for newborn?

We are lucky enough to gave space in our room for a standard cot so does baby really need a crib for starters or not? Will he/she feel lost in a cot. Puzzled.

Straight to cot is fine, or maybe a moses basket first? But they do grow out of these pretty quick so I'd prob stick with the cot if you do have room.

Babies are used to being in a small space... they'll like something smaller initially like a moses basket or crib, or if you're my DS you'll barely spend any time in the crib because we both liked co-sleeping too much smile I don't know why we even bought a cot.....

Mine started in a moses basket placed inside the cot.

Thanks.grin Maybe we'll look for a Moses basket I like the idea that baby could be use that downstairs as well putting the basket in the cot.
