Porta cot long term use

I was in an awkward living arrangement at my mums when my first was born. His nursery was in the main house and his port a cot was in our room in the granny flat down the back we used the port a cot at night every night until he was one and it was perfectly fine. I actually preferred it because I could rock it to some
Degree and it calmed him

My girl slept in her portacot a few nights while visiting mum about 6 months ago and since then wont sleep in her proper cot at all, so she is in the portacot for all sleeps, we just add extra padding as they aren't too comfy!

My daughter is now 19 months old and apart rom co-sleeping, has only ever slept in her portacot. It was awesome as I could rock it, and it can be moved to whereever we are without her needing to get used to a divverent bed. Iv I have another child, it too will co-sleep and sleep in the portacot.
As vor comvort, we put a baby doona thing volded in halv under her sheet so its a bit sovter.
