You can sleep your baby in the big cot overnight as young as you want to. Always try to follow the safe sleep guidelines as recommended by the lullaby trust now that is to place your baby on their back with their feet to the foot of the cot and make sure that the cot is kept clear. Now always an important thing to remember is to make sure that the cot base is positioned appropriately according to your baby's mobility.

It's also recommended that you keep your cot in the same room as you for at least the first 6 months.
