Decorating your baby's nursery? Our step-by-step cot guide will help you find the right cot or cotbed for your new baby
A cot is your baby’s bed for the first couple of years, usually has fixed sides or one drop-side and tends to fit a smaller space. A cotbed is essentially the same but once your child is ready you can take both sides off, turning it into a junior bed (sometimes called a toddler bed). A cotbed is designed to give you more years’ of use, but that doesn’t mean it has to be more expensive.
There are pros and cons to both a cot and cotbed – find out which style of cot you’d prefer.
