Cots

Welcome to the Cots page, this is our guide to buying a cot online and includes wooden cots that include a mattress and are convertible into infant beds from brands such as Mamas and Papas, Graco, Cosatto and others.

A cot is the place where a baby sleeps, it is like a bed but has rails around it so that the baby will not be able to get out of the cot. This is due to safety, safety is the most important consideration with cots so it is worth making sure that the cot you buy conforms to all of the safety standards. The main safety organisation for cots is FSID so it is worth making sure that the cot you buy matches their standards. There are also many types of cot available, you can get them in wooden finishes such as pine, natural beech, antique, ivory and many others, you can also get cots that include a mattress, have drop down bars and can convert into beds. There are many brands that offer cots and they include Mamas and Papas, Cosatto, Graco and others.

There are other safety considerations to make such as the bumpers, bumpers are soft cushions that attach to the inside of the cot to stop babies from moving too much and hurting themselves. These bumpers should be removed once the child is capable of pulling themselves up on their own, also remember that if you are buying bedding for the cot then quilts are not suitable for babies under 12 months.

Almost all cots are wooden and come in different finishes such as antique, beech, lime wash, ivory, pine and many others, pine and beech are probably the most popular wooden finishes. Most cots also come flat packed so you will have to build the cot when it arrives, this is usually a simple process as most cots do not have many individual parts that make the cot. Most cots also come with a mattress so you will not need to but a mattress separately, it is best to check this though as it is better to make sure. Many cots also have a drop down rail so that you can easily reach the baby, the drop down rail is usually on only one side of the cot so consider this when placing the cot in a room.

There is also another type of cot that offers better value, this is the cot that converts into a bed. These convert into small junior beds which will save you money as you will not have to buy a separate bed for the child, they also save time and hassle so are well worth looking out for. These cots that convert into beds are also not much more money than the standard cots so they are very cheap and great value for money, they usually come in pine, ivory, natural beech or antique finished so there is always a cot suitable for your room. There are lots of brands that make cots including Cosatto, Mamas and Papas and Graco, many of the shops sell their own cots which are high quality but allot cheaper so are worth a look.

If you are looking for a cheap cot then it is better to have a good shop around, there are many shops that offer cheap cots and also often have cheap special offers and deals. The cots that convert into beds will also save you money in the long run, many of the shops have own brand cots which are also cheap. You can also get cheap cots from the top brands such as Graco, Cosatto and Mamas and Papas if you shop around, always remember though that the safety standards of the cot are by far the most important consideration when buying a cot.
