Baby cots: How to choose the right baby cot?
Baby sleep is a topic that worries all parents. We already know: if the baby doesn't sleep well, no one will stay at home! Choosing a safe, practical and comfortable cot for your baby is important to ensure that your baby has a good rest. What to look for when buying a baby cot? What should it have and what safety requirements should it meet? We will try to answer these and other questions so that the choice of the most appropriate cot does not deprive you of sleep.
What to look for when choosing a baby cot?
Before you buy a baby cot, you should answer the following questions:
Co-sleeping yes or no?
Co-sleeping is the practice where infants or children sleep with one or both parents. This type of sleeping offers many advantages for some families. Of course, there are a number of precautions to take when co-sleeping in bed, as there is a risk of suffocation or crushing, especially when co-sleeping with children under 6 months of age. In such cases, choosing an extra bed allows you to practice safe co-sleeping, enjoy its benefits and not put your child at risk. If this option suits you best, check out what you need to consider when choosing an extra bed.
How much space do you have?
In order for the cot to be placed comfortably and practically, it is necessary to measure the space well. This is very important, especially if we choose a fold-out bed that is larger than traditional beds. Baby cots usually measure 120×60 cm, which is the main suggestion for young parents. Cots of other dimensions are rarely found, because they need to allocate more space in the room. Usually, parents want to have their baby with them, which is why the above dimensions are the best solution for parents' bedroom in the first months of life. Our beds do not differ from the accepted size standards, but they are significantly improved in terms of the child's comfort! All our beds have height-adjustable mattresses that can be adjusted to the current needs of the child and have the option of a low railing.
How long will the child use the cot?
Baby cots, toddler beds, extra beds or cots that can be converted ... There are many options. The choice between one and the other depends on our priorities and how we want to use them.
Are the materials and finishes of the cot safe, functional and practical?
Both materials and paints or colours of the cot must be non-toxic. You'll see how often you'll find your baby sucking on the rods or nibbling on the handrails. Special attention should also be paid to workmanship: that there are no sharp edges or corners, and that the fixing screws are polished and matched. Once you have chosen the most suitable crib for your baby, all you have to do is enjoy it, watch it sleep peacefully and be amazed at how fast it grows! Sweet dreams for the whole family! Are these baby cots with fall protection and height adjustment? Do they have drawers for storage? Do they have a couch function?
Cradle or baby cot?
Baby cots are completely different beds than classic single beds, which we usually buy for children in the 3 and up age group.
Baby cots are above all higher and have protective nets on all sides. These are absolutely baby cots with fall protection. When we talk about baby cots, we often mistake them for cradles, but these are two different things. The cradle is much smaller than a baby cot and has a different structure. Most cradles are built to be rocked, while a baby cot is stationary. The cradle can be used up to around 6 months of age, and up to a maximum of one year of age. It cannot be denied that a cradle has a unique charm, it looks almost nostalgic and romantic, also from the designer point of view, which has few accessories such as furniture. At some point, however, there must be the transition from the cradle to the crib, which is usually recommended as early as the sixth month of the baby's life.

A baby cot or maybe a cradle?

Baby cots: how to choose the most suitable solution for a baby's bedroom
The birth of a baby is one of the most exciting events in life, but it is also a turning point with great changes and new responsibilities. Life changes completely, its priorities, rhythms and habits. There are also great changes with regard to the house or apartment, its equipment and the type of interior design. The first thing to do is create a safe and comfortable environment for the baby on the way. Its time to design a children's room, think about what it should look like, what to buy, what furniture is necessary, what colours to choose, starting with the walls and ending with the furniture. And what about the crib? What model will be the most suitable for such young children? Choosing a baby cot is not that simple, but it is one of the first things you should buy before having a baby.
In our offer you will find various types of proposals, suitable for children in the 0 to 3 age group. Before we find out how to choose baby beds that best suit our needs, let's see how to arrange a children's room for the little ones.
Equipment of a baby's bedroom
After the first months of dizziness and being somewhere between joy, anxiety and a thousand questions, one of the first things to do in order to be well prepared to welcome your little one is creating a friendly, safe, but also practical environment.
Efficient space planning plays a fundamental role here, because it will allow parents to move easily, especially in the initial period, in chaos, looking for a change of clothes, such as diapers, toys or other accessories necessary for the baby's everyday life. A well-organised and tidy room will not only allow parents to move around smoother and more efficiently, but will also make the fast-growing baby feel comfortable, especially when it starts crawling and taking its first steps.
A must-have in a newborns room
The cot is certainly one of the most important pieces of equipment in a bedroom for babies, but what else can you not do without?
After dividing the space in the children's bedroom into:
- A play area in which to place the child's toys in baskets or in special boxes;
- A sleeping area, where the selected bed should be placed;
- An area reserved for diaper changing with a changing table, shelves, organisers where you can put baby clothes and accessories and everything you need to change your toddler.
The furniture chosen to furnish a children's bedroom should be characterised by an economical pattern and simple shapes. Few things are needed, but only the ones most practical and functional. So the dresser fits here perfectly, it should be placed in the area reserved for nappy changes. The wardrobe should also be nearby. It should not be too large, for storing clothes, coats, bedding and quilts. It is best if it had a minimalist design. In addition, the practical baskets and containers for storing toys that we place in the play area. Some people already want to equip the room with a desk and shelves, but they are not necessary furniture for the age group from 0 to 3 years.
What colours to choose for a children's bedroom
Another very important detail to keep in mind when designing a children's bedroom is the choice of colours. Starting with the walls, we advise you to choose colours with light shades, that are warm and not too dark. It is important that the spaces are cozy and warm, so we recommend neutral colours or pastel. Fancy wallpaper will be another great solution here to decorate your bedroom walls in a stylish and unpredictable way.
When it comes to furniture, we will opt for furnishings made of natural materials, preferring, if possible, wood and in light shades, so as to give the rooms more light and a feeling of more space.
Baby cots: which model to choose?
Baby cots are completely different beds than classic single beds , which we usually buy for children in the 3 and up age group.
These beds are taller and have safety rails on all sides. When we talk about baby cots, we often mistake them for cradles, but these are two different things.
The difference between baby cots and cradles
The cradle is much smaller than a baby cot and has a different structure. Most cradles are constructed to allow rocking, while a baby cot is stationary. The cradle can be used up to around 6 months of age, and up to a maximum of one year of age. It cannot be denied that the cradle has a unique charm, it looks almost nostalgic and romantic, also from the designer point of view, which has few accessories such as furniture.
At some point, however, there must be the transition from the cradle to the crib, which is usually recommended as early as the sixth month of the baby's life.
Apart from the very inviting design, cradles are also very practical, because they can be easily moved to every corner of the house, and thus keep the child in the eye of the parent.
The suggestive and delicate Moses cradle is a wicker basket with a very elegant appearance, it is also very ecological. The product is 100% natural. It was made with great care and with special attention to every detail. The cradle consists of thick wicker shoots that make the structure solid, stable, but not bulky at all. The lining of the cradle is made of a delicate fabric that will guarantee the child maximum comfort, especially during sleep. The cot is intended for children up to 6 months of age. The dimensions of the cradle are:
- Width 62 cm
- Height: 105 cm.
- Length 90 cm
Such a versatile product with straightforward elegance can be left in the bedroom, next to the parents' bed or in the child's room. Of course, we can move the cradle wherever we go, because despite its solid construction, it is very light.
In addition to the cradle, we can also use a baby cot, which is much more practical and versatile. If design is what worries you, because you think that it is not as iconic and fashionable as the cradle, do not worry, because in our offer you will find really original and sophisticated models in both light shades and natural colours.
Baby cots are very practical beds and recommended to people who are looking for solutions that are not only durable, but also stable and easy to use. A baby cot is a functional solution that will furnish and give the children's bedroom an original touch by personalising its interior.
The Angel Baby Cot is very versatile, functional and with a fashionable design. The piece has been made from high-quality pine plywood. For the safety of the little ones, the cot has an integrated headrest and densely placed rungs.
An additional advantage is the strong, durable and well-ventilated cot base, which has been equipped with the possibility of height adjustment on 2 levels, depending on the child's age:
- The neutral level which is a bit higher and adapted for newborns;
- Low level, intended for older children who are already starting to stand up on their own.
The furniture is based on stable legs connected to each other at the bottom of the bed by a frame. The varnishes used in the production of the furniture are environmentally friendly and anti-allergic, which makes the entire structure safe for the health of children. The Angel bed is recommended for children up to the age of 3 and is available in various colours, such as:
- wood colour
A different mattress for each model: how to choose the most suitable one
When choosing a baby cot, we must also remember to choose the most appropriate type of mattress for the bed. There are many models in our range, but let's take a look at them together. It should be remembered that each model is distinguished by the material that makes up the mattress. Which ones are worth recommending and how to choose them?

Furniture style and baby cots: design and colours
Baby cots are very versatile products and therefore can be easily adapted to the furnishings of almost any bedroom. Usually, the style of furnishing a child's room is very simple and poorly defined, because there is no clarity about the ideas on how to precisely arrange and decorate this space. In fact, many parents prefer not to invest too much time and resources in a personalised bedroom when their children are still very young, so that they can engage in the process later when they are older, so that they can create a space specially adapted to their liking. .
The baby room can be decorated with 3 types of current trends:
- classical style children's bedroom - simple and economical furniture, but with special attention to small details. In this type of children's bedroom we can find shabby chic furniture and traditional aesthetics.
- modern style children's bedroom. Almost all bedrooms for babies, or at least for very young children, are decorated this way, because they are very simple, but also very effective. In addition, modern furniture is very intuitive and fits well with others, without any problems with arrangement.
- minimalist bedroom with furniture of essential, simple shapes, giving the space a formal balance. In this case, bright colours dominate.
Classic style children's bedroom: how to choose a baby cot
The irresistible charm of children's bedrooms arranged in a classic style continues to charm and conquer the hearts of many people. Despite the fact that there are all kinds of styles and trends, and they are very original, the classic style does not pass away. Calming aesthetics, attention to detail and the use of unique craftsmanship are the real advantages of this style. How to choose the most suitable baby cot for this type of environment?

We recommend this model for this age group from 0 to 3 years. The cot is available in grey, of course not too traditional, but it is a very versatile and extremely fashionable colour, especially in recent years.
Children's bedroom in a modern style: original aesthetics and pastel colours

It is a room equipped with furniture of simple, linear and defined shapes, light colours, especially neutral, but also pastel shades, it's very bright and sophisticated.

The is an additional option in the form of a low handrail which turns the bed into a small sofa perfect for a preschooler.
Also in this case, we recommend this bed for the 0-3 age group.
A bedroom in a minimalist style: essential but stylish
A bedroom, decorated in a minimalist style, gives the environment essential rigor, thanks to its clean and simple lines and flat and monochrome colours. This style is often chosen because thanks to the use of light and neutral colours, it gives the interior a lot of shine. White is definitely preferred over the rest of the neutral tones here, as it widens the spaces and gives them an immediate touch of elegance. Furniture and accessories are distinguished by the economy of lines and shapes as well as the simplicity of details. And the baby cot? What should its shape and colour be?
