Get a great cotbed for babies and toddlers

Cotbeds for babies and toddlers

Cotbeds are a great sleeping option for your baby. Ours has been fantastic. Given the short lifespan of most baby items you buy, a good cotbed is a great long term investment and should see your child through to about 4 or 5 years old.

Top things to look for in a good cotbed:

  • Adjustable height – start off high when they are little and can’t sit up, down to bed level when they are toddling about
  • Removable sides – drop sided cotbeds can be a bit of a nightmare as the sides rattle and can get little hands trapped.
  • Standard mattress size – check that you can easily buy a mattress, as its quite possible that the cotbed will outlive the life of the first mattress
  • Storage – get one that has room for under bed storage, as that is an easy place to store away clothes and items that you don’t need instantly available

So, without further ado, here’s some cotbeds for babies to consider. All our price information is from amazon.co.uk.
