Winnie The Pooh Cotbed
Advantages: sturdy, secure, large enough to use for a few years
Disadvantages: none found yet!
It took us a long time to find a cot that we were actually happy with. Being first time parents we looked for a long time before deciding a cotbed would be the best thing for us. As it grows with your child and turns into a bed we figured that it would mean we could use it for longer and get our money's worth out of it.
We looked at a few and finally settled on this one. Made from pine wood it has a nice tone and finish on it. There are winnie the pooh pictures carved into both ends of the cot which add a nice decorative touch. It was also a reasonable price compared to some of the others you can get and I personally prefer the look and structure of this cotbed.
The cotbed was easy to build as it came with clear instructions. We put it up as both a bed and a cot to see how easy it was and the change is fairly simple. Once built it is sturdy and feels very secure- something that you need to consider when buying for baby. The ends are very thick solid wood and there are plastic coatings on the top of the rails which are described as teething rails- this will hopefully protect the wood from damage as well when baby gets bigger!
The only thing worth noting is that you are only paying for the bed so need to choose a mattress to go with it. We got a mattress from the same shop as the cot. The other thing we found disappointing is that the matching furniture to the cot was discontinued so if you are looking to get a matching nursery suite this may not be the one for you.
Our son loves his cot, and with the adjustable mattress height we have no worries about it being a safe a reliable purchase as he grows.
Summary: I love this cotbed by far the best one I found with all my searching!
