Does anyone know of any taller than usual cots? We have a divan which with mattress is 62cm high, so the standard cot height of 80cm won't leave enough clearance for the baby when raised to match the bed... Obviously it also needs to be able to have a side removed...
Excellent! We're planning on doing the same - I'm quite surprised by the lack of choice of basic co-sleepers out there and we're a pretty handy household, so a bit of adjustment should be fine. We're thinking about the IKEA Gulliver option - but I know Kiddicare do cheap cots too, so I'd be keen to hear how you get on!
I'll let you know dats the ikea ones are only 80cm high so were no good for us (and we're nowhere near an ikea), but I know people have definitely used them for co sleeping. The sniglar is even cheaper at £35
It's arriving tomorrow (amazing delivery speed!) and we might try it out at the weekend to see if it fits. Will also have to drill extra holes I expect. But at £40 with half price mattress it's worth a try!
Just to update, the cot came the next day (amazing service!) and I've built it to three sides and seems sturdy enough. The mattress base attaches to the cot ends, so it will work with one side I think.
Yet to drill the extra holes needed to get it to our mattress height, but I think it'll be fine and hopefully done before she arrives in a couple of weeks
Is it just for when the baby us sleeping in your room? If do, I had a bedside co-sleeper crib. It was hieght adjustable so perfect. Plus there're no bars between you and the baby, so you don't have to sit up to pick baby up. It the best thing we bought! This is the one I have.
