Do end-opening cots exist?

Hi - wondered if anyone has ever seen, had or made an end-opening (ie; short end opening) cot?

No, <being nosy> why would you need the end to open not the side? Considering if dc is at the opposite end and mattress is on lowest setting dc would be hard to get out of cot.

Thanks for reply. I'm new to this baby stuff and the possibility just crossed my mind as starting to plan house conversion on account of little bun!

no, i haven't, but figured the same as MNP, would be hard to get baby in/out

I would't worry about it TBH. I bought a cot where the side could be dropped one handed as this seemed to be recommended but I can count on one hand the number of times I've actually dropped it. I'm tall so just bend over and pick DD up. Now she is bigger she is usually standing up when I go through in the morning anyway

MNP is spot on - even if you found one you;d never be able to get the poor child out!

and bear in mind that even cots with drop sides onyl drop 6-12" so it doesn;t make a huge difference if the side is down or not when it comes to leaning over.

They do come in a huge variety of sizes though, from specialist compact ones (102x66cm, try Community Playthings), via standard european (123 x 66cm, try Ikea) to ultra-plush bateau-lit style cotbeds (159 x 109cm, Mothercare)
