Yesterday I had a small win (or so I thought) when I stumbled across not one but two cots that I love both in the same store. This is a BIG deal here in KL as modern, stylish and good quality furniture (especially for babies) is not all that easy to find. So I was super excited about my discovery and planned to take hubby there tonight to get his opinion (aren't I kind tee hee).
BUT... yes, it's a big but... I started doing some reading on what to look for in the perfect cot and had no idea there was so much to consider! Make sure the mattress is firm, ensure that the gaps between the bars are not too big, cots with all four sides open are a better option, is the drop rail essential, does it matter if it doesn't convert into a toddler bed etc. etc. etc. Sheesh!
Like most first-time-parents I'm sure we are going to get completely and absolutely carried away ensuring we give our bubba the best we possibly can. But I am also learning quickly that everyone has an opinion and the best you can do is take the information on board and then make a decision based on what you think is right for you and your little one. So my friends, after trolling through baby website after baby website, I thought who better to ask than my friends in blog land! I would LOVE some advice and opinions on baby cots to assist us in choosing the right one for BB!
Thank-you! Son, Mr Bouw & BB xo
