Cots, cot beds, cribs, co-sleepers…there are lots of options when it comes to your little one. At Smyths the Baby Room, you can find beautifully crafted cots, adaptable cot beds and lightweight sleepers from top brands like Baby Elegance, Nested, Babylo and Chicco.
The right cot for your child will depend on how long you’d like it to last and where baby will be sleeping. A full-sized cot is an investment piece of furniture that will grow with your little one, while a baby cot bed transforms into a toddler bed or day bed that can be part of your home for years to come.
Our Nested cots and cot beds are expertly crafted for comfort, safety and style. Each has an adjustable base that can be lowered as your child learns to pull up to standing, keeping your growing child safe. These cots are designed and tested for safety and durability, with teething rails to protect both the wood and your little one’s delicate gums. When choosing a baby cot or cot bed, make sure to check the dimensions and consider how the style of furniture fits in with your nursery décor. This is a piece you’ll want to be happy with for years to come. For a complete set of nursery furniture, the Nested Sorrento Changer pairs perfectly with the Nested range of cots and cot beds.
If you have the space in your room, a cot can be just right from day one—but cribs and co-sleepers are great choices for those first few months when baby shares your room. A baby crib will take up less floor space in your room and can easily be moved around the house, so you can keep baby close while they snooze. If you’d like to have your little one right by your side at night, a co-sleeper could be the right option for you. Co-sleepers usually feature a drop side and a base that can be adjusted to match your mattress height for the safest possible co-sleeping.
Whether you’re decorating baby’s room, exploring co-sleeping options or need a lightweight crib for gran’s house, you can find something that’s just right for your little one at our Baby Room. y entertainers and walkers bring a whole lot of fun to playtime. These activity-packed toys are designed to encourage movement as your little one works on those gross motor skills. Whether they’re learning to toddle or bouncing in a jumperoo, these entertainers make moving fun. For help choosing between baby walkers, entertainers and other playtime options, check out our Playtime Tips!
When choosing a baby entertainer or baby activity walker, look out for features that can spark your little one’s curiosity. Playful music, flashing lights, mirrors and bright colours stimulate baby’s senses, while entertainers with animal toys or baby walkers with steering wheels can help encourage imaginative play. Bat-at toys, teethers and bead chasers are great for your child’s developing hand-eye coordination and other fine motor skills. Some baby entertainers, like the Fisher-Price jumperoo, feature seats that spin 360˚ so baby has even more to explore.
Suitable from when baby can sit up unaided, stationary entertainers and bouncy jumperoos keep baby in one spot—making them perfect for moments when you have your hands full and need a few extra minutes for you. Your little one will be surrounded by fun activities to keep them entertained, and you can keep an eye on them knowing they can’t crawl off.
Baby walkers are much more mobile. Though they have similar frames to jumpers, baby activity walkers feature wheels so tots can kick at the floor to scoot along. It’s a great way for kids who can’t yet walk unaided to whizz around and explore. But because they’re on the move, it’s even more important to keep a careful watch as they play. A lot of baby walkers feature stoppers that let you fix the frame in place when needed.
At our Baby Room, our range of entertainers, jumperoos and baby walkers includes early learning focused brands like Fisher-Price, Baby Einstein and Babylo. If you’d like a baby entertainer that grows with your little one, choose one with an adjustable height that adapts to fit your child. Some entertainers can even be adapted to sit and play modes, or feature clip-on toys baby can take on the go.
Playtime can get messy, so check whether your baby entertainer has easy to clean fabrics. If space is at a premium, an entertainer or baby walker with a foldable frame can make a huge difference.
