Hi all.
I really want a co sleeper cot. Was really intereste in the chicco but took a look in mother care and it doesn't come up very high at all. I didn't think our bed was particularly high, I'm about 5"7 and its sort of just below my hips but the chicco was no where near.

Anyway, any ideas on higher co sleepers?

Hi - looking for something similar, and was going to start a new post when I saw this.

You mention a "Chicco". If this is the Chicco "Next2me" then I'd have to say avoid. We got one when they first came out, and despite the design being seemingly obvious, Chicco seemed to be the only company to have realised.

Unfortunately they have executed the idea terribly - it's really horrible to put up and dismantle - at many different stages and for a number of different reasons - from knuckle-skinning fiddly bits, to "fix these two bits together in a really tight space you can't see", to "Now disassemble it and fit the 7 awkwardly shaped (for no good reason) constituent parts into the ridiculously small travel bag we have provided. Suffice to say, I'm not a fan.

I am hoping to find something like a traditional looking cotbed with one side you can remove, and a mattress height that's very adjustable.

We got one from John Lewis and it reached our 80cm high bed.

Good length as our tall dd stayed in it for 6 months.

Good quality and about to come out of loft for dc2.
