It is always safe and recommended by experts to make the baby sleep on his back
on a firm sleep surface. It is always good to make the child sleep in a separate
cot in the same room with parents for one year. However, in the Indian setup,
parents have been using cradles to put the child to sleep comfortably. The baby
feels cosy and comfortable and can sleep for a long duration in the cradle. The
motion makes the child feel sleepy and comfortable. The problems with a cradle
are, it gets difficult to change the sleeping habit and make the child feel
comfortable on the bed over a period of time and if the child grows up (above a
year), they can jump off easily which makes it unsafe. Sometimes, the baby might
roll to one side and end up with his/her face pressed against the cloth through
which (s)he may not be able to breathe properly. If you have decided to use the
cradle, consider these pros and cons to decide the best for your child.
