Cot Beds & Co-Sleepers

Cots are suitable from birth, with adjustable bases and teething rails for safety, while adaptable cot beds can be converted into toddler beds to grow with your child. You can check out our range of compatible mattresses to complete your nursery. For more options, co-sleepers offer a safe and practical way for baby to sleep closer to you. They feature drop sides for easy access to feed and comfort baby.

The right crib for your child will depend on how long you’d like it to last and where baby will be sleeping. Co-sleepers help keep baby close by your side, while a full-sized cot will grow with your little one. A baby cot bed can be part of your home for years to come, transforming into a toddler bed or day bed as needed.

Cots and cot beds by Nested, Baby Elegance, Babylo and Tutti Bambini 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.

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 like the Next to Me crib 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 Smyths Toys.
