We have this lovely, brand new cot that was bought for us when I was pregnant… which has never once been slept in in the 19 months of DS's life. We took a side off so it does make a very useful laundry shelf/chair/fun thing to climb on, so it is somewhat useful, but I'm thinking of selling it and using the money and space to get another mattress for the floor of our bedroom for DS to sleep on now that he's mostly sleeping through.
But I feel strangely reluctant to get rid of the cot! If I haven't needed it up to this point, is there anything I might need it for in the future?
I assume we'll cosleep again when we eventually have babby#2 - based on genetics it probably won't be one of those "sleeps through at 2 months" babies but you never know :-p

Nope. If you never used it so far then get rid of it

We got rid of ours after DD1 for the same reason, have never regretted it!

Get rid of it.
I coslept with my first out of necessity (ie he would wake up and scream the house down if I put him down). I kept it just incase my other children would be different. It may have been used a handful of times if that as they either slept in the sling or in my bed with me. It just took up space and collected dust really.

I got rid of our cot too after baby#2 for the same reason. Baby#3 never ever slept in a cot. We were both very happy with this arrangement.

My cot is currently used as a playpen. As in a protective device against my 3yo.
