Cot beds for babies

Whilst a newborn baby can sleep in a cot bed (70cm x 140cm) they are usually used for babies from around 18 months. The smaller(60cm x 120cm) cots which look very similar to a cotbed except the sides and foot panels of the bed cannot be removed to convert to a small bed for toddlers where a cot bed can.

If space is a limiting factor your other options are a next to me crib that is designed to be placed next to the parents bed (usually attached) or a traditional moses basket which tend to be the option for taking up the least space, is cheaper and more portable if it needs to be moved between rooms.

As the term cot (smaller) and cot bed(larger) can be used to mean the same thing for many new parents we've covered a range of great little baby beds that will keep them safe and provide a sound, secure sleep.

The Rio wooden cot bed from Tutti Bambini is a great cot bed that you can use from birth up to the age of 6 years as it converts to a junior bed by removing the sides. It also includes a baby changing attachment that attaches to the top bars of the bed to provide a useful nappy changing area.

When it comes to safety the RIo is made from solid pine and meets the relevant British standards for safety compliance BS EN 713, BS EN 716, BS EN 8509. It also features 2 protective teething rails to prevent your little one from hurting their gums when they try to teeth on the rails.

Buying a cot bed that converts as your little one grows means that you won't have to worry about buying again until they need a small bed or single bed.

This cot does not include a mattress so one would need to be purchased separately. I'd recommend you buy your mattress separately as this allows you to purchase a safer breathable cot bed mattress rather than relying on a mattress added to a cot bed and mattress bundle as an afterthought.
