Why this cot ****************** Prior to our son being born we shopped around for a suitable cot. We decided that we would go for a cot rather than a cot bed due to size and the fact that we had a high quality single bed that would be suitable for him to use as a toddler. We had several ideas about what we wanted the cot to include these were: adjustable height for ease of putting baby in, a drop size again for ease of putting baby in and changing the bedding. I also thought teething rails would be useful. So thus armed with our wish list we went shopping and selected this cot. What is it? ***************** This is a beech cot ... Read the complete review

We bought this cot when my eldest son was just 4months as he had outgrown his crib, he is now 3 and we also used it for his baby brother who is now 18months. The first thing I noticed about this cot is how solid it feels compared to some other cots priced about the same. It has 2 teething rails and 1 dropside which is fairly easy to control with one hand (I had to put my foot underneath the side to lift it slighty to make it easier to drop with one hand which was no trouble) it also has 2 positions making it easier to put your baby down when hes still small without breaking your back and yet you can lower it as soon as they're pulling themselves upto ...

Our DS originally slept in a Moses basket at the end of the bed because our flat was tiny and we couldn't fit a cot in the bedroom. However, DS turned out to be a huge baby and very quickly outgrew the basket. Therefore we somehow 'squeezed' this cot into our tiny room. We purchased this particular cot because it was on sale in Mothercare, and I had discount vouchers AND the beech matched our current furniture. (However it is available in a white fnish with coloured beads). My DH put the cot together very quickly (it comes flat packed) and we were quite pleased with his handywork. When we move, I sincerely hope we get dismantle it and put it together again ... Read the complete review

We have had this cot for 3 years, having bought it new for our eldest daughter, and it has been in constant use ever since, first with her, currently with our second, and it will also be used for our new baby next year. We chose the beech colour, though it was also available in white. The cot has 3 playbeads at each end, which my children started to become interested in when they were able to stand. They have both enjoyed standing up and playing with the beads, pushing them round and round! Other useful features of this cot include a 2 position base; a one handed drop side mechanism; and teething rails. Now I didn’t go looking for a cot with teething rails, I .. Read the complete review

My son has been using this Jamieson playbead cot since 6 months - it only took him two nights to settle into it and he seems very happy. The cot itself looks very smart but until the cot was used for about a month the side did make an awful click noise to fit in the up position sometimes waking him which nearly drove me crazy! It still makes a noise but this has become much softer with use and i have to say the fact that you can drop the side with one hand easily does outweigh the noise factor overall. Another factor to remember is that the matress it comes with isnt maxi cool if you want that you just have to order that as an addition which is very easily done. My ... Read the complete review
