White Solid Wood Baby Cot Bed is much wider and longer
A baby cot bed is a cot which is much wider and longer. The reason it is larger is because the cot bed has the ability to convert from a cot to a toddler bed. Some cot beds even have the ability to convert to chairs or a sofa once your child has outgrown the toddler bed. This can be a great investment as you will save money and will be able to get the most out of the furniture you have bought.
Many of them also come with drop sides and different cot heights, so are still as flexible as a standard cot. It can also be a useful way to bridge the cap between a crib and a adult bed, making transition a lot smoother.
If you have decided that you do not want to cosleep or have your child in the same room as you then a baby cot bed is a must have. It will save you money, time and energy as you will not have to search about for a bed once your child has outgrown the cot.
There are versions for co-sleeping
If you have decided to cosleep you may want to consider a baby cot bed only because there are versions for co-sleeping. They are designed to fit snugly against the side of your bed. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean you need one. Many parents have a large enough bed to fit them in and their baby, without any need for another bed. Some parents have low beds or place their mattress on the floor to make things as safe as possible. So by not buying a co-sleeper you will save even more money, however it all depends on how much room you have and your specific needs.
Although many think that a cot is an essential piece of baby equipment, it isn’t. If you have an attachment parenting style philosophy or intend to co-sleep then it isn’t really necessary to buy one, but if you don’t and do not intend to have your baby close by, then this type of furniture can save you a lot of money and is a essential piece of baby equipment. Think carefully though before you buy and whether this is essential to you.
