Convertible Baby Cot Beds
Babies sleep a lot, typically up to 16-17 hours per day intermittently, so it’s important that you give your growing baby the best possible place to rest that is both safe and comfortable. A good idea is to purchase a baby cot that adheres to international safety standards, grows with your child and is of a high standard of quality. Buying a baby cot that is easy to convert into a junior bed is essential, as this will make life a lot easier for you as your baby grows into a toddler.
We can recommend several cots that grow with baby such as the Sebra Kili Baby Cot & Junior Bed(incl mattress) which extends into a toddler bed, The Leander 5-in-1 Cotbed (incl mattress) converts through 5 stages and also becomes a beautiful cot bed, just as the Flexa Cot does too, the Birdy 3-in-1 cot turns into a single bed and so do most of the other cots we have selected for you.
