Can I co-sleep with my baby? Or is a bedside/side bed co-sleeper bassinet the safest baby bed?

NB: it is by far the best baby sleep practice to use a bedside/sidebed co-sleeper bassinet or a traditional bassinet right next to mum for at least the first 6months of age. Many parents also choose to use the Mini or Classic Sleepwrap and little HEADwedge for peace of mind in a bassinet from approximately newborn – 6months old.   


If you still choose to co-sleep in the family bed, choose to do so as safely as possible by using a Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap and minimize the known risk factors:

Co-sleeping main risks:

  • Smoking
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Overheating between adults
  • Creeping and suffocating underneath bedding

Safer co-sleeping with the Safe T Sleep Sleepwrap:

  • Helps prevent baby overheating as baby can be positioned next to the mother only
  • Helps prevent baby creeping into dangerous positions and underneath bedding by using the leg piece on the Sleepwrap
