Hello. Just moved 4 month old to cot as outgrown Moses basket. I have had awful sleep fir past 5 nights since doing this with her waking every hour or 2. Previously she had been sleeping through. She's a cuddly baby & I wonder if cot feels too big. Have read that baby bolster pillow may help. Does anyone know where to buy them? Can't find them online anywhere. Thankssmile

By the way, she is happy & sleeps as soon as I hold her after waking in night, but only stays asleep for more than hour if in bed with me holding her....

Is this the sort of thing? www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B007PDREPY/ref=mp_s_a_1_8?qid=1393224748&sr=8-8&pi=AC_SX110_SY165

Don't think they are recommended due to SIDS risk

Or give her something to cuddle with? Soft toy, muslin with knot in the middle etc etc If you wear it down your top during the day, to transfer your scent for a bit of extra comfort smile

Ilovepowerhoop is correct in that in this country they are not recommended due to SIDS. I used one with DS as he hated sleeping on his back and the only way I could get him to sleep was on his side. Mine came from Spain where they are not seen as evil in the same way as they are here.

You must decide if you are happy to depart from current recommendations which change all the time

Iovepowerhoop: many thanks for the article, I won't be using that then!! Jay bird..good idea. Will try. She slept better last night as I put one of those breast feeding pillows behind her head while she slept on her back, to provide a bit of comfort & support.

Do you mean one of those big 'V' shaped pillows? Did you put her head on that??? If so I'm not sure that's wise. Unless I'm reading it wrong and you mean something else? If you want to use a pillow there are flat ones specifically designed for babies like www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B001O83F7C/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1393272960&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX110_SY165
But again these are NOT recommended once they start to roll on their sides. If she's in a room on her own I dunno that I'd be leaving her with any sort of pillow, bolster etc But it's your choice, maybe put a flat baby pillow under the sheet? It's making me nervous the thought of a 4 month old on her own with a pillow shock
