DS is 7 months and we are going away on bank holiday. The Marriott hotel we are staying has the option for a crib or rollaway bed....
I'm not quite sure if the crib mentioned is same size as a standard cot??? confused

can someone advise?

I would ask

I tend to think of cribs being smaller but I think in the US they call all cots cribs so it may have come over here too

thanks Bronze
If that's the case, then it would be too small for my ds.
Sorry, I'm really confused. Would it be safe for him to sleep on the rollaway bed?
I will ask the hotel, but I would like to hear from experienced mums too

I suspect its what I think of as a cot.
