Nothing quite tops watching a newborn drift off into the most peaceful of slumbers. Sleep is a massive part of a baby’s young life: the average munchkin under nine months will snooze up to 15 hours a day- even more reason to make absolutely sure their cot is a soft, heavenly place to rest those weary heads.
“There are so many different Cots on the market, which one should I choose?” Its a common question our Nursery Dream Team get asked all the time. And its the reason we’ve decided to put together a Top Ten list (because we all love Top 10 lists!) of our most popular Cots and Cot Beds to help you choose the best sleep solution for you and your wee munchkin. So… let the countdown begin, a sound nights sleep is just a top ten list away!
10. Kalon Studios Caravan Cot & Toddler Bed
Having won 6 major European awards, German powerhouse Kalon Studios have combined timeless and modern aesthetics for another knockout cot. Its distinctive, primary-coloured bars slot neatly into their maple casing, taking cue from picture book drawings that delight and fascinate in equal measure.
