Tips of Choosing a Baby Cot

in News

There’s such an air of excitement when you’re expecting a little bundle of joy soon! Along with choosing the colour of your newborn's bedroom and accessories, there is one most important purchase you have to make before the birth of your little one – a baby cot. It is a known fact that buying the right baby cot is crucial. However, there are tons of brands in a wide range of prices of baby cots in Malaysia, leaving you much research to be done.

Hence, we hope to save you some precious time by providing you with some tips to look out for in considering the baby cot for your little one:

It’s always important to ensure the baby cot is strong and sturdy and adhere to the latest safety standard such as European safety standards BS EN716. Choose a baby cot that is made from solid wood such as pine wood and beech wood, rather than chipboard which normally does not last and is much cheaper. Also, do pay attention to the gap between the mattress and the cot sides and ends, especially when you purchase the mattress and cot separately.

Non-Toxic Materials
High quality and non-toxic materials are among the most important features of a baby cot. Usually, a baby chews on anything when they are teething. Thus, food-grade teething rails are crucial to prevent a baby from getting sick when ingested as well as to prevent damage to your baby’s teeth and the cot. Besides that, the baby cot must use non-toxic paint or water-based paint to create a safe environment for your little one.

Removable and Lockable Castor Wheels
Having wheels attached to the baby cot allows it to move around easily in-between space. However, it is important to place the cot in a safe spot and use the lockable castor wheels to securely lock the baby cot at a spot, especially when there is a little one inside the baby cot for safety reasons.

Adjustable Drop Side Mechanism
The adjustable drop side from up to down or be stationary helps you to access the baby easily without straining your back. It is easier to lay a child down without waking them and easier to change bedding on the cot mattress with the side lowered.

Adjustable Mattress Height
Cots with adjustable height positions are practical, so when your baby is young you can gain easy access to them. As they get older and more mobile, you can drop the base down, so they can’t climb out of the cot preventing them from falling out.

Consider a Grow-with-you Cot
Convertible baby cots are usually larger in size and of stronger construction that will last years as they can be converted to a toddler bed once your little one outgrows their cot. With a convertible cot, parents are saving on expenses as they can turn three purchases into one with just a few adjustments, instead of having to buy an individual bassinet, cot and toddler bed.
