Ive bought a preloved cot for my granddaughter. Its white with 3 big playbeads each end. Im pretty sure its Mamas n Papas.
The base has 4 little metal pegs that look like they fit into holes in the end panels, but this is a mare to do and more importantly doesnt look at all strong enough to hold up a mattress and baby!
Are we doing something wrong? Is there something missing? My granddaughter is growing out of the crib and we really want to get the cot set up by FridY when we are having her overnight.
All help gratefully accepted!

Can you check the website for instructions?

It sounds like a cosatto Bola to me but then a lot are similar.

Can you take a pic at all?

Ah have found it, it's the Amelia yes?

If you check Q&A on M&P website it suggests they can send you the instructions by email - ring their customer services and ask xx

Our m&p cot had those. They don't look very sturdy but once you get them all in its fine.

Most of their instructions are available on the website to download.
