Co-Sleeping With Baby

I think it's normal, especially in Asian countries, where newborns sleep on the same bed with their parents. I myself have planned to have my baby to co-sleep with me during her early months. I don't buy any baby cot or playpen for my baby because I am planning to have her to sleep on my bed during night time. Since my husband's work of nature requires him to be out of town most of the time, I think co-sleeping with her should be no problem.

Of course, we've heard of a few mishaps and unfortunate incidents where babies were found dead while co-sleeping, mostly because of suffocation due to being accidentally squashed by the parent. It was a tragic, really. I am fully aware on the consequences of having a tiny baby to sleep with me at night so I decided to buy an appropriate and suitable sleeper which is safe for the baby.

The First Years Close & Secure Sleeper from Parkson OU at RM152 after discount.

This is sufficient enough to be used during her early days on my bed. It comes with a soft night light for you to check on the baby anytime while she sleeps.

With mesh sides which allow better air circulation for the baby. The sides are made of hard plastic to prevent baby (or even parents) to roll over the sleeper.

Portable, lightweight and saves a lot of space when folding.

So what happens when the baby outgrows the sleeper? Isn't it going to be a waste since you'll be using it for, let's say, just for a month tops?

Yeah, I've thought about it too and still, I'm not making any plans to buy her a proper cot or playpen because I can always borrow from my relatives. And I planned to furnish the baby's nursery with a proper bed and furniture which have longer lifespan. So there, please don't make me spend my money and buy a baby cot or playpen for the baby because I won't. Butttttttt, there's always a but. It's a totally different story if you decided to buy me a playpen as a gift. Will be more than happy to receive it! Hehehe!
