Sleep on my bed in the day and sarong/babycot at night.
Actually he prefers to sleep on the bed but he's always sleeping on one side while lying flat on his tummy
Initially when infant was borned, his head skull is still very soft & fragile. To prevent odd head shape, it's better to let your child sleep in the sarong (= moulding). Letting him sleep in the baby cot/ playpen is fine as well but the only thing is to prevent him from sleeping one side all the time so as to prevent flat/ pointed head & face.
You may like to use both: sarong cum baby cot/ playpen. This works for me. Sarong is moulding process whereas baby cot/ playpen is what we parents prefer the munchkins to rest upon as a good transition period for their future mattress.
Personally I dont't wish to hear my kid complaining/ blaming me for causing this unpleasant permanent image!
My dear daughter sleep in sarong during daytime, nightime must also let her sleep in sarong first, till she really sound asleep then transfer her to her playpen. If I put her on mattress or playpen, she won't sleep.... will cry till you put her in sarong. So every night, either me or my dear husband have to transfer her from sarong to playpen before we go to bed.
Daytime - bouncer
Nite - Sarong
Daytime, my dear daughter will sleep in sarong, so can mould her head also to let her feel more secure inside. Nite will let her sleep in cot, unless she cranky, will rock & pat her in sarong, fall asleep then transfer to cot.
morning - bouncer or bed
nite - playpen
baby cot for am & pm.
