Top Tips - Cots and Travel Cots
Getting a good sleep is one of the most important things to us all and babies are no exception, but how do you go about getting the right cot and mattress for your newborn? We look at a few of the key factors to ensure your baby gets a cot to suit all your requirements.
The first thing to think about is practicality. Look at the dimensions of the cot - will it fit in the required location? How heavy is it? (If it needs to be moved or assembled often). What features does it have and how easy is it to operate? (eg ease of operating the drop side if it has one)
Another thing to look at is style. How will it look in the room? Not essential but if you have the time and budget you can always shop around to get your desired colour or design.
Another thing to think of is how suitable the cot is for the baby as he/she grows older. Many newer cots have protective teething rails for safety so always check product specifications when comparing cots.
Finally the mattress is perhaps the most important thing. Make sure that you get the correct size mattress for the cot if there's not one included and consider the design to try and get one that's got head, neck and body support features.
There are many different types of cot available including specially designed Travel Cots so shop around to get the best deals. Searching online and checking other customers reviews is often a good starting point.
