Red Nose Australia
Thank you for contacting Red Nose with your question.
Red Nose recommends that the safest place for baby to sleep is in a cot that meets the mandatory Australian Standards.

While prams do have mandatory standards, these are for transporting, not for sleeping in.
Red Nose & Product Safety Australia do not recommend sleeping baby in a pram, especially unsupervised.
Never leave your baby unattended in a pram or stroller. It is not a substitute for a cot
Avoid sleeping children in prams or strollers. Never have an unharnessed child asleep in a pram or stroller as they can move about and may be at risk of falling or entrapment. If they are asleep, maintain regular supervision.
