At what age should a baby be moved out of a bassinet? My baby still sleeps beside us in a bassinet during the night but sleeps in a cot in her room during the day. I’m concerned she’s getting too big for the bassinet as she’s now rolling freely.

Red Nose Education

Red Nose recommends that a baby move from the bassinet once baby is showing signs of rolling.

If you are using a bassinette it is time to transfer your baby into a cot as soon as they first show signs of being able to roll
It is essential to discontinue wrapping as soon as baby starts showing signs that they can begin to roll, usually between 4-6 months. If you wrap your baby, consider baby’s stage of development. Leave arms free once the startle reflex disappears around 3 months
