I don't think it really matters, you can do it as early as you like. I've bought a moses basket to use for as long as i can, but that's only my choice and it'll be easier to stay at my parents at xmas with.

They say that moses baskets will last up to 6 months, but my friends baby was huge and out grew his by the time he was 10 weeks and had to go into his own bed. My brother in law couldn't sleep with their baby in their room as he kept panicking over every little noise and wimper and so he slept in his own bed from an early age too.

My hubby and dad put together the cotbed yesterday and it looks mahooosive! Baby will get lost in there i think!!

hi sian, i would probably start trying him upstairs for 1 sleep a day and see how you get on from there, i guess a good time for him to go into his cot would be when he is too big for his moses basket, although most of the books say they should stay in with you until 6 mths.
i bought a crib for this little one so he/she will be able to stay in with us longer but i will encorage a good sleep in the day upstairs, i guess its each to their own x

the health visitor told us 6 months, but we switched Isaac to his own room at 7 weeks - he used to make really weird, loud squeaky 'dolphin' noises in his sleep, which woke us up continuously!! Plus, he's been sleeping through from 6 weeks, so it seemed pointless to keep him in with us - especially as I was still getting up to express milk in the night when he was sleeping, and running the risk of disturbing him!
