You can put baby straight into cotbed, no reason not to - but just be prepared that they might not like it. I personally found (and quite a few of my friends also did) that newborns like being closer to you and/or in a more cosy space such as moses basket, next to me crib, bassinet., nest etc. We ended up using our pram bassinet for night time sleeping and then bought a next to me crib after a few weeks in as baby hated being in his cot

I'm planning to do this with mine as dont want to take up space getting both and then having to deal with selling the next to me once baby has outgrown it ! X
