Post subject: using carrycot as moses basket..
we are going to be using the carrycot from our pram for baby to sleep in at first as our cot doesn't fit in our bedroom. was just wondering what bedding i have to use with it? also, after looking online lots of people saying 'with mattress'. does it not already have a mattress? or will i need a new/different one? thanks.

Depends on the carrycot , some are designed for sleeping in and will have a proper mattress that's suitable with them and some are just meant for short term use and not really for overnight sleeping, it should say on the manufacturers website or whoever you're buying it off might know . I had to use a carry cot at first with my second for the same reason as you and I used special pram sheets and blankets they're about the same size as the ones for a moses basket xx

I used our pram cot for a day bed (Bugaboo) and I bought a co-sleeper cot which fits to the side of the bed (quite small) for night sleeps. I didn't want a moses basket because I was worried one of our three cats would knock it over when they were play fighting or get in and sleep with the baby.
