DD is 6mo 68.5cm and wondering if there's a cheaper alternative?
Currently in Chicco next to me and up about 6 times a night. I'd like to avoid co-sleeping but think this may be the only interim solution.

There’s no alternative pod on the market that is safe for overnight sleep. I took dd out of sleepyhead at this age and just put her on the mattress, she actually slept better.

Thank you I'm all a bit new to this. Is there a reason it's not as safe as on the mattress? More so she can't roll out the bed easily or get close for a feed as trying to semi night wean

Can you fit a bigger cot in your room?

Otherwise how about a bed guard and you wear a top?

The sleepyhead is safe, I just mean you could put her directly in the next to me rather than buying the next size sleepyhead.

I don’t know anything about co sleeping as I had dd in a bednest which is just like the chicco.

There are cheaper alternatives however they are not safe.
The sleepyhead is breathable.

Facebook & eBay are full of secondhand ones that are less costly though.
