Setting up a nursery for the first time is one of life’s best moments. Sure, you have lots to think about and even more equipment to get before baby arrives but there is something special about the nursery. Every nursery need a good cot and we have a huge selection of the top brand cots on the market.
What type of cot do I need? Here at Eurobaby we like to look at things in a practical way. What do you need it for. By that we mean, does it just have to be a cot or do you want it to convert into a toddler bed after baby grows up a bit?
Can you adjust the height so you can have baby nearer to you and don’t have to stoop way down to pick them up.
Some cots have height adjustable base units and you can move them up or down depending on the size of your baby.
Does it come with teething rails - babies love to chew on everything so help them out by giving them something soft and protective to munch on when they are active.
Does it come with a cot mattress and is it standard size in case you have to buy a replacement over time or for baby number two? Is it easy to put together or take apart if you want to move it to another room.
Does it have any storage compartments included? These are very handy, especially at night when you are fumbling around looking for that extra blanket. If you intend to sell it on after baby has grown up then look for a quality brand that will stand the test of time and the wear and tear that comes from your little prince or princess.
Don’t forget the travel cots.
When baby goes for a sleepover to mums house you are going to need a travel cot of some description. These handy fold away cots are ideal for chucking in the boot of the car, or even leave it at mums.
