Are Cocoonababy sleeping beds Red Nose approved? Or flat and firm mattresses only?

Red Nose

Red Nose does not approve any specific brand products.

Red Nose recommends that all babies are placed to sleep on a mattress that is firm, clean, well-fitting and flat (not elevated).

See https://rednose.com.au/article/what-is-a-safe-mattress.

This specific product and others like them do not allow the baby to sleep flat, and many will cause baby to sleep with “chin on chest”,  which may compress baby’s airways.

“When a baby falls asleep in a propped up device the head can fall forwards, pushing the chin down towards the chest. This can lead to the airway becoming blocked and reducing airflow.”
