I guess this could have gone in products topic too...

The bed is 149x72.
Only mattress I can find is a cotbed mattress size 149x70. I know I am being dumb but this is the right one isnt it?

Sorry the cotbed mattress size is 140x70!

just a quick 'yes its right' nor 'no its not, you need x size' will do grin

sounds like its the right one to me.

where did you get the toddler bed from - does it not say which mattress to use with it?

The width sounds right but 10cm less on the length sounds a lot.

Are you measuring this yourself or using the measurements they supplied? If so, are they internal or external measurements?

*seona - it does not say what mattress to buy sad just that it is not supplied with it.

theyoungvisitor not measuring myself, these are measurements that are given on website. And it does not say internal or external.

I was presuming that the additional 10cm was the headboard and footboard part? So that the 149 was the total length not just the mattress part.

I was unsure though about that 10cm, hence my checking.

The site does not seem to have 'toddler mattresses'

seona have not actually bought either yet, but have seen a bed on Kiddicare website which looks nice.

I have just been looking on the toddler company website and the bed measurements were as above, and the mattress was also as above, so I am guessing it is right, given that it only sells like two mattresses and only sells toddler beds?

I work at Natural Mat and we get these kinds of questions all the time about cot bed mattress sizes, it’s all very confusing! If your cot bed is 149 x 72, it would take a 70 x 140 mattress which is standard. If you would like to find out more about our products check us out at Good luck with the search.
