There is a huge range of cots and cot beds available and when making the right choice for your baby we suggest you consider the following points:
Cribs do the same job as a moses basket and will only last until your baby is 6 months old (at the most)
Cots are smaller than cot beds and work very well in a small room. You should be looking for an easy smooth drop-side mechanism and they all come with 2 or 3 base positions. Many have plastic teething rails but these are not essential. A cot will last your child until about 2 – 3 years when they can then go into a junior bed or a standard single bed with a bed guard.
Cot beds convert to a junior bed by lowering the base and removing the sides and will last until your child is about 5 years old. They are bigger than standard cots and last a lot longer, many cot beds come with matching nursery furniture.
Here at A3BabyBarn we stock a wide range of cots and cot beds from all the leading manufacturers. At anytime we have 10 – 15 models on display but we can order anything from any of our suppliers.
