this is another baby sleeping one (sorry!) but 2 quick questions. DD is 7 months old and has been an awful sleeper recently. wakes every hour/2 hours, putting it down to learning new things and transitioning to her cotbed from the crib.

question 1; is there any co sleeper cots out there? not just cribs but proper approved side sleeper cots? I know you could just leave the side off a normal one but this isnt safety checked and I do get anxious very easily!

question 2; now she can roll both front to back and back to front is it safe to leave her in whatever position I find her in if I wake up during the night? I often wake up and shes rolled onto her front (had a mini heart attack first time I saw her in this position) or shes on her side. I do put her down on her back but she never stays like this.

thank you!

both these questions are to try and get better sleep which is why I mentioned shes a poor sleeper - she prefers being next to me and sleeps longer on her front, she cries and wakes up if I roll her onto back during the night

It's safe to leave her in whatever position you find her in. Not sure on the side cots though.

You could put her mattress on the floor and lie next to her to settle her if you think that would work?

oh that's good to know, I did have a look round Google but found mixed views on whether you should put them on backs again if they've turned in the night - seemed a shame as she much prefers being on front and side now!

hmm, I'll have to have a look around. the mattress on floor doesnt sound like a bad idea though! thanks smile
