Transferring from a mosses basket to a cot by louisehampton

As Toby was such a long baby he only managed to be in his mosses basket for 8 weeks. His mosses basket was also his pram so this meant he would easily sleep anywhere which was great.

When choosing a cot we looked for one which not only had three mattress heights so that this could be lowered as Toby learnt to sit up etc but the side of the cot also lowers.

This means that when I pick Toby up out of his cot I am not having to bend down very far so it’s a lot better for my back. Travel cots are a different story so I try not to use one unless I have to – especially at the moment as he isn’t even sitting up so picking him up from that far down is not good for the back at all.

If you do find your back is sore why not see if a Chiropractor can help? A list of Chiropractors in your area can be found by visiting the British Chiropractic Association’s website
