The 60x120cm baby co-sleeping cot convertible into a desk has greater usability than traditional cots. They share the same characteristics, but the difference is that they offer the option of co-sleeping with your baby in a totally safe and comfortable way.
It's recommended that parents practice co-sleeping until their baby reaches 18 months, since that is the date when the child should begin to sleep alone in order to fully develop and give way to the process of parental independence.
It is really important that the co-sleeping cot is well fixed to the parents' bed to prevent the baby from falling and to avoid possible accidents. Our cots include simple systems to fix the co-sleeping cot to the parents' bed that will allow an easy fastening, will secure the baby and will avoid all kinds of accidents.
Furthermore, there should be no gap between the cot and the parents' bed. The cot is fixed to the bed by means of a series of strapes that hang below the cot and are tied around the mattress base of the parents' bed, tightening to achieve the maximum degree of fixation and safety, with the cot firmly attached to the parents' bed. This ensures that the baby, no matter how much is moving, will not have enough strength to move the cot and the bed and fall through the gap. There are also wheels included, with a braking system that help to secure the cot to the ground and prevent it from moving. They are not only used to secure the cot to the floor and make it safer, they are also used to move the cot around the house.
There is no problem at all! You will simply have to lift up the bed base or box spring to fix the straps under it, instead of fastening them to your bed base.
Alondra's co-sleeping cots are evolutionary. They have several different stages of use that allow them to extend their lifespan. They become a cot, desk, couch and bed. Perfect to grow with your baby during all his/her stages.
In all our co-sleeping cots the bed base can be adjusted to 5 different heights. At Alondra we recommend using the same height as your bed mattress, so the baby will be at the same height as you. The safety rail is locked in place.
The textile you need for your co-sleeping cot is the same as a traditional 60x120cm cot, that is, size 60x120cm.
You can use the same mattress as a traditional cot. Furthermore, in the case of Alondra's co-sleeping cot, it's necessary to buy a mattress supplement to avoid gaps between the mattress of the double bed and the cot mattress.
