The Best Cot Bed UK

Cot beds are a little different from cots. They’re designed to be converted into a toddler bed, so they are suitable from birth to 4 years old, or older. A cot is suitable from birth to 2 years old. That’s not the only difference between a cot bed and a cot. Both sides of a cot bed drop down, whereas a cot usually only allows one side to drop down to give you access to your baby. A cot bed is a little larger than a cot, but a little smaller than a single bed. They can help your child with the transition into a larger bed on their own. As they’re sized differently to cots, and single beds, cot beds need their own specially sized bedding and mattresses. But they do last longer than a cot, and can help a toddler feel more secure than a single bed. Here’s our top ten cot beds.

  • Teething rail on one side

This sleigh cot bed is a super stylish addition to any nursery. It has a sleek modern design, and a number of huge selling points. 

It’s a spacious cot bed, which gives plenty of room for restless sleepers, and means that when it’s converted to a toddler bed, it’s suitable until your child is 5 or 6.

There’s also a drawer that slides underneath the cot bed, giving you more nursery storage without taking up more floor space.

This cot bed has 3 mattress positions. The first is suitable for very young babies, as it is quite high. This does put less stress on your back as you’re lifting the baby in and out. The second and third positions are lower down in the cot bed, so your more active baby won’t climb or fall out. You might be also interested in the best Moses basket
