They are designed to be as functional as possible. They are the perfect 2-in-1, since when the baby gets a little older and can access the cot by its own, it becomes a 70x140cm bed. In addition, for greater comfort, the bed base offers two different heights in the cot stage. Some models can be also converted into a desk and offer 5 bed base heights.
They are larger cots and that means that they can be used for a longer time. In addition, Alondra models are convertible into a bed and a desk.
Being a larger size, the cot can be used until the baby is 5 years old, although in cases where the cot can bed transformed into a bed, we recommend to use it as a bed when the child is 3 years old used and later as a desk (when he/she no longer fits in the bed).
Once the baby gets older, it will be necessary to have a larger youth bed, 90x200cm, as well as the rest of the furniture such as the wardrobe, the chest, the bedside table, etc ... if you don't have this furniture.
The wheels in this type of cot are not recommended, as it will not be able to move easily due to its size.
Our 70x140cm cots are designed to offer the greatest comfort, for both babies and parents. That is why they have a special higher height, which facilitates access, allowing better accessibility to the inside of the cot without the need for a mobile handrail; and a lower height, to prevent the baby from getting out.
The best sheets for a newborn's cot are those that can withstand washing and do not scratch the baby. The fitted sheets shouldt it tightly to the cot mattress to prevent them from coming loose and rolling up when the baby starts to move around. We recommend using 60x120cm cot linen.
Whether your baby gets the best possible rest depends very much on the mattress of his/her cot. The mattress has to be firm, so that the baby does not sink into it. It should be well adjusted to the size of the cot (we recommend mattresses of size 70x140cm). If it's smaller, the baby can get trapped between the cot and the mattress. It's not washable, so mattress protectors are recommended.
