We recommend following The Lullaby Trust safe sleep guidance. They suggest a cot that has a firm, flat mattress with a waterproof cover and some lightweight bedding.

Blankets are recommended to be firmly tucked in below shoulder height. Sleep your baby on their back in the feet-to-foot position (feet at the bottom of the cot so they can’t wriggle down under the blankets). It is recommended to keep the cot clear of all other items.
