Best cotbed for tall baby?

Does anyone know which cotbeds have the greatest height from the mattress to the side rail, with the mattress on the lowest setting? My tall 9 month old is already dangerously close to climbing out of our cot, so I think it's time to invest in a cot bed.

We have a mothercare one, on the lowest setting the height is 58cm from the top of the mattress. My DD is a very tall 16 mo and there is no way she could get over it! HTH

I thought cot beds were pretty much the same size really. Our one that we got from kiddicare.com seems pretty tall, and dd1, who's 3 soon can climb in it, but not out of it, and I think it's on it's lowest setting. Dd1 doesn't sleep in it, dd2 does (14mo) and she's tall too.

Thanks both! 58cm sounds good. Our current cot only gives us 40cm, so that would be a big improvement. We inherited the cot and I think it was built for a generation of smaller children!
