Furnishing the nursery is one of the most exciting parts of preparing for the arrival of your baby. But without being able to picture your baby as a toddler, how do you go about buying a cot or cot bed? Maybe you can start by making a choice between the two!
There are many similarities between a traditional baby cot and a cot bed. The main difference is actually the lifespan of the cot itself. A standard cot can be used from birth to about the age of two, while a cot bed can be used until your child is 5. If number 2 comes after, you can get even more mileage from it. Cot beds also typically come with removable sides so it can be converted into a small bed for a toddler.
Bear in mind that a cot bed transforms into a bed smaller than a typical single bed. This means that you will probably have to factor in the extra cost of a new mattress and bedding that is not typically easily available, despite saving money on buying a brand new bed. Additionally, cot beds are usually bigger than a cot and are not an ideal choice for parents who are planning on sleeping in the same room as their baby during the first few months.
