Hi everyone
I've been using the red castle cocoonababy nest for my baby girl who is nearly 13 weeks it's been a godsend and massively helped with her reflux.she has slept fantastically in it since about ten days old
My question is if anyone out there has any advice on how to do the transfer from the cocoonababy nest to the cot bed now she is nearly out of it and starting to roll. I have been placing it in the cot all along to get her used to it hit she really dislikes being flat on her back, anyone else had the same thing?? Thanks!

If she has reflux then she is likely to dislike being on her back - it's not necessarily due to the cocoonababy iyswim. You could try propping her on her side (supported with a rolled towel against her back if necessary) and see if she sleeps better like that. Also have you tilted the cot?

I was just wondering how you cracked the transition from Cocoonababy to cot bed? Our son is 6 months old and still in his Cocoonababy! I know he should have been out a long time ago, but he loves it so much and sleeps so well in it. I have tried him in a sleeping bag in the cot bed for the past two nights. Both times, he's gone off fine, but then woken up crying after an hour. He never normally wakes up in the night at all. Both times I've tried to settle him again, but he's been too distressed and has ended up back in the Cocoonababy. Any advice on how to wean him off the Cocoonababy would be really gratefully received!

I am also suffering the same issue. My child is 3 months old and starting to roll over, so I need to transition her out of the Cocoonababy. I've tried to get her to sleep on her cot mattress but she just screams. I've not yet put her back in her Cocoonababy but after 2 sleepless days and nights, I'm very tempted. Anyone have tips on how to transition?
