Hi there Flooded, thanks for the info about changing tables. We have a similar one from Ikea and it's been a life-saver (DD is ten months old now).

Just wanted to let you know about our experience with cots...

My OT has told me there is such a thing as a 'high low cot' and it's possible for health authorities to lend them to disabled parents! They're very big and a I think they sit in storage a lot of the time. The beauty of them is that they go up and down at the push of a button. They're very ugly and look like they belong in a hospital. The site below has prettier options!

My daughter is too big for it to be a safe option now (she could pull herself up by the bars and then fall against them). Ten months ago, it would have been a great help. So maybe ask your OT to look into it.
