    What to look for when buying a baby cot

    When deciding which cot’s best for your little dreamer, it’s important to consider aesthetic and functionality. Here are some considerations when choosing a cot:

    Space: How big/small is the room? Cots vary in size so measure your room and make sure the cot dimensions will fit your space. Use our handy nursery planning guide to help you on your way.

    Safety: Safety is paramount, so be sure to choose a cot that meets Australian Safety Standard AS/NZS 2172-2003.

    Quality: The quality will impact both the safety and durability of the cot. Choose a well made, sturdy cot that will last the journey.

    Fixed side or drop rail: Considering a cot with drop rails? Try to select a design that allows for one-handed operation so you can hold baby in the other arm.

    Adjustable mattress height: Cots should have a minimum of two mattress height options. Constantly reaching down for a tiny newborn isn’t fun, plus the added height means baby won’t be able to climb out of the cot.

    Nursery design: Is there a nursery theme or other furniture that the cot needs to compliment? Many cots are available in sets so the change table and dresser all match too.

    Features to consider when buying a cot

    Teething strips: These are plastic strips that attach to the rails of the cot to protect baby’s precious teeth and gums, as well as the cot itself.

    Castors: Wheels make a cot easier to move around. Ensure the wheels are lockable so the cot won’t move when in position.

    Sustainability: Look for claims of sustainable manufactures, such as the use of plantation or FSC-certified timber.

    Convertible cots: Make the transition from cot to bed as smooth as possible. A cot that doubles as a toddler bed will provide a safe and familiar environment when easing into the change.
