The only piece of furniture that you can’t go without if you’re expecting a little one is a Cot or a Cot Bed, so your baby can sleep soundly and safely inside. To help you with your choice, we’ve included 10 beautiful beds that are sure to meet your budget and style.
Before you begin, here are a few things you should know when choosing a bed for your baby:
- Petite Cots are used from birth up to 12 months, and require a mattress size of around 90x50cm.
- Cots are used from birth to about 2 years old, and require a mattress size of 120x60cm.
- Cot Beds can be used from birth to about 4 years old, since they can be converted into a toddler bed by removing both sides off. They require a mattress size of 140x70cm and are preferred by most parents because they have a longer life span.
