First of all, you need to place the cot in the room against a wall. Avoid placing the cot against the wall that is shared by the bathroom or other noisy room of the house. Also avoid placing it near the wall featuring a window.

Secondly, you need to place the comfy chair or the rocker near the cot. Assure that the cot is no more than three feet away from the cot. This will provide enough space for movement of pieces. On the other hand, if the cot is placed against the middle of a wall, you have the option to place the rocker at the corner.

Also ensure the placement of changing cot is far from the cot so that the little one cannot get his hands on the things kept on the table such as lamps, chords, etc.
