"Where should newborns have naps during the day?"

For the first six months it's really important and recommended that your baby should sleep in the same room as you for both day time naps and night time too.

This is when having a Moses basket is really ideal, because you are able to move it from room to room between naps.

In reality babies often fall asleep in the car seat, buggy, sling or anywhere they are comfy and fancy a snooze. If this happens try to move your baby to the Moses basket, bed side crib or cot in the same room as you. That way you can keep an eye on them while they are sleeping and also get a bit of rest too.
