    Default What's in your 1 year olds cot?

    I put my DD in her cot with nothing, she just has her sleeping bag on and that's it. My friend told me I was mean not having any toys, rattles, blankies in the cot for comfort and to play with when she wakes up.

    Am I?? What do you have ....

    None of my kids have things in their beds/cots. At one they slept in their sleeping bags, but had a comforter each and a small snuggle blanket. When they wake up I either get them up, or to buy a few minutes of 'wake up mummy time' I'd go in and say hi and give them some books/nesting blocks/whatever to play with whilst I jerked myself into gear

    A fitted sheet, nothing else. DS sleeps in a sleeping bag. I have never had any luck with getting him attached to a blanket or comforter etc. If it's not boobs he's not interested!

    When she goes down, she has a muslin wrap, a dummy and a fisher price 'seahorse', she also has an activity board that attaches to the side...

    When I get her out in the morning, after her and her brother have played for about half an hour or so, this is how it looks...

    My ds didn't have anything in his cot until he was 2 years old! You're not mean OP, just tell your friend that the SIDS guidelines state that they should have nothing in the cot apart from tightly fitted sheets until 2 years. You're just practicing safe sleeping.

    A fitted sheet activity thing on the side. Two comforter blanket things and a hoot toy from giggle and hoot. And a blanket.

    When he was in his cot - a fitted sheet, his blanket (he hated sleeping bags), several stuffed toys at one end (he never really played with them) and his comfort teddy.

    A fitted sheet and his bunny (which he couldn't care less whether is there or not)

    DD is 2 now, but she has always just had a fitted sheet, a sleeping bag and herself.
