Night-Night!: The Ultimate Guide to Children’s Cots

When it comes to outfitting a nursery for your little one, choosing the right võrevoodi (cot) should be at the top of your list. A good cot can provide comfort, safety, and convenience for both you and your child – making it an essential part of any new parent’s checklist. To help make this important decision easier, here is our ultimate guide to children’s cots.

Factors To Consider When Choosing A Cot 

Safety First 

Above all else, safety is the most important factor when picking out a cot for your infant or toddler. Make sure that the model you choose has been certified by an independent laboratory as meeting basic safety standards. Also look for features like adjustable sides with no more than a 6cm gap between slats, as well as stable and secure locking mechanisms on wheels (if included). 

Size matters   

When choosing a cot, you need to consider the size and shape of your nursery. You want something that will fit in well without taking up too much space, especially if there is another furniture in the room. Also, think about how long you will be using the cot; if you are planning on having more children, getting a larger option now could save you money down the line! 

Materials used  

Cots come in a variety of materials, from plastic to steel frames covered with foam padding or fabric linings such as cotton or polyester blends. Thicker foam mattresses offer better support, while natural fabrics such as cotton tend to be softer and more breathable for the hot summer months. Whatever material you choose, make sure it is durable enough to withstand regular washing and wear and tear over time. 

Comfort for your little one  

The ideal cot should provide comfort and support during sleep without restricting their movement or freedom – so finding a cot that can be adjusted in height as they grow is always useful! Look out for extras such as bed linen sets, mattress covers, mosquito nets, etc., which can add extra comfort when needed, but should still be removable when no longer needed. 

Style & design options    

These days there are endless style options when it comes to choosing a cot – from sleek modern designs with minimalist lines to traditional wooden models with intricate detailing, there really is something for everyone! If possible, try to find a design that coordinates with other pieces in the nursery; this will help create a cohesive theme throughout the baby’s room, without having to go overboard with decor items later on.  

Budget considerations   

Finally, don’t forget to consider your budget when looking for the perfect nursery furniture! Quality is key here, so do your research and compare prices across different brands before settling on a particular model – this way you can ensure that the piece you invest in will last until they reach primary school age (at least!).    

The bottom line  

Choosing the right cot may seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be if you keep these tips in mind! Remember Safety first; size matters; materials used; comfort offered; style and design options; budget considerations – all play an important role in this big decision, so take your time to decide what works best for you and your child before making a long-term commitment!
