Cacoona baby - what next

(7 Posts)

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for a bit of advice from people who have used the redcastle cacoona baby mattress. We borrowed it for ds1 and it improved his sleep overnight. We moved him to the cot around 4 months when he was rolling and verging on too big for it. We are now using it for ds2. He sleeps well (3.5m, goes to bed at 7, has a dream feed at 11 and usually wakes for one more feed before getting up for good around 8, usually resettles easily after each feed) in it but is bigger than his brother so will need to move on. When ds1 moved to cot his sleep dramatically changed (with more wake ups, more crying, early rising). It could have been coincidence with 4m sleep regression but I'm now terrified about moving ds2.

So my question is for anyone who has moved a baby from the Cacoona when they've outgrown it. How did you do it? Did your baby keep sleeping well? Anything else to think about?

Thank you in advance! X

Thanks so much - I just found out about these today and was considering getting one so it's reassuring to hear from someone who has used one.

It's been brilliant she loved and is now nearly 8 months so going to get the next size up smile

Oh thank you - I also wanted to ask about the sizes. My little one is coming up to 4m and is 50th centile. Some of the reviews say that their babies grew out of it earlier than expected. With that in mind I'm tempted to get the bigger one but then maybe that defeats the point of them being snug?! Would you say your lo is average size or small/big for her age? Thank you!

She's 7 1/2 months but only 9 th percentile it's really cosy and she loves turning into the sides to sleep. I will need to put her in the next one up I imagine at 9 months grin

She's 6.5 kilos if that helps
