John Lewis Anna Drop-Side Cot
Advantages: Easy assemble, durable, sturdy
Disadvantages: Nothing major
We brought this cot from John Lewis two years ago
REASON FOR PURCHASE: We brought this one as we made the decision we wanted a cot and not a cot bed as we always said we would have a second and by the time the first was in the bed the second child would need it.
John Lewis is known for being pricey however this cot was of good quality and the price was cheaper than there competitors! We found all the staff very helpful and were very patient whilst we were discussing what was best for our newborn. It was delivered to our door on the date and time made in-store and my Husband self-assembled really easily.
One of the sellers for this cot was the dropside which we found very easy to use, the kick board at the bottom amd the side which you lift then drop made it easy to lower a sleeping baby into and proect my back.
It didn't come with a mattress but the cot is average side and the mattress was easily sought from John Lewis/mothercare. All cot bedding fits it
Can buy a nappy chnager to go on top which matches it, and a toddler bed is also available to purchase at a good price.
The cot itself is very sturdy and durable.
The colour is beech which fitted well in out nursery and doesnt show up any dirt (I feel the white one would show up scuffs)
Easy to assemble
Appears comfortable and of good size for our tall 18-month old and has had her 2 1/2 year old friend in easily.
It has three mlevels to set the matress at which is great for when you put a newborn in as you can lower it as needed.
When our little girl had swine flu we were easily able to elevate the end of the cot by putting a pillow under the mattress. This helped her breath easily.
It is not as bug as a cot bed so fitted into our bedroom with ease.
The side that drops can be shaken loudly which our little girl stands up and does when she wakes up this is the only reason I would give it four stars and not five!
I have just recommeneded this cot to my cousin who is due in march, I would have given it to her had our lil one not still been in it.
It is a fanastic product that doesn't break the bank would highly recommend it.
Cotbumpers should not be used with newborns as they can be deemed as unsafe, john Lewis informed us of this and gave us safe sleeping advice
Summary: A highly recommended piece of furniture for your newborn.
