Before your baby is born you will be buying a variety of things that is necessary for after the birth. One of the most important things is getting the correct cot for the baby and for your home.Cots are amongst the most expensive things that you need to buy for your new born baby. You need to buy a cot depending on the size of your home and the size of the baby’s nursery.
All cots come with storage drawers under them; so no matter how much space you have in the house; this is definitely a good buy even though it is slightly more expensive. A cot is like an investment so see that you get one large enough so that your child can comfortably sleep in it till he is about three years old.
The cot should have one side that can be easily dropped down to various levels making it easy for you to pick up the baby. The height of the mattress should also be adjustable so that you can keep lowering the level for safety. This is good because as your child grows he should not be able to climb out of the cot and fall down.
There should be bars on at least three sides of the cot so that you can easily see the baby. It should also be such that one side can drop to the bottom and the bed can become the same height as the one your are sleeping on.
A play pen is also a type of cot and it is more economical than a cot and it also serves two purposes. The mattress is kept much lower and it is very light weight. The good thing about a play pen is that once your child is sitting he can sit in the play pen and play with his toys quite safely without any fear of falling. It is also very light in weight and can be easily folded and stored .There is also no fear of your child falling off as the sides are quite high and it is covered with a net from all sides.
