Sleeping in camp cot

Hi,

My daughter has been waking up multiple times a night for the past 5 months (she is 9 mnths). Recently we went away &  she slept in her camp cot &  slept beautifully. So, we have tried having her have her night time sleep in the camp cot &  she has hardly woken at night. My question is, is this bad for her back, or any other part of her body?

Thanks.

She will not be sleeeping in the camp cot for too long and the base should be relatively firm. So there should not be a problem provided this is for a short period.
