Baby’s First Bed

If you’re expecting and about to become a parent, congratulations! This is an incredibly exciting time, but we understand that it can also feel a little scary and sometimes daunting. Which is why we’ve created this guide, to help you navigate that all-important purchase of buying your baby’s first bed. 

Newborn babies spend up to 18 hours a day sleeping, so it’s important to choose the right bed for your little one. With so much to choose from, the search for your baby’s first bed can be overwhelming. If you can’t quite tell your cribs from your Moses baskets, then this guide is here to help you make the right choice for your family. 


Where should my baby sleep?

It is recommended that baby sleeps in the same room as you until around 6 months of age. Whilst in the same room, to reduce the risk of SIDs, it is important to give baby their own safe sleep space. Keeping your little one close by will also help make those regular night feeds and late-night wriggles that little bit easier.

What type of bed is suitable?

When deciding on your baby’s first bed, it’s important to consider where your little one will be sleeping during the day as well as through the night. You will likely want them close by, so choosing a sleep space that’s easily portable is essential.

Bedside Crib

A bedside crib, also often referred to as a next to me crib, is a great option for your newborn sleep space solution. Baby’s first bed being right by our side allows you to be close to your baby without the risks associated with co-sleeping (sharing the same bed).

One thing to consider is that most next to me cribs are not portable and cannot easily be moved around the home. SnuzPod4 features a lightweight lift-off bassinet for use from room to room, giving you the ability to keep a close eye on your little one even when doing the washing up!

Moses Baskets

For the first 6 months, most people choose to buy a bedside crib / next to me crib or Moses basket rather than a cot or cot bed. Whilst a cot is perfectly suitable for a baby, many prefer a crib or Moses basket as not only are they cosier, but they are much more compact meaning they take up less room. 

It’s also a super practical choice as it offers incredible portability, from room to room as well as home to home. If you’re heading over to your family or friends for dinner, you can take your Moses basket with you to ensure your baby sleeps comfortably in a familiar space in between all those cuddles!
