The traditional 60x120cm cots are a good option if you want your baby to get used to sleeping on his/her own from the very beginning. These standard-size cot models can be used up to approximately 3 years of age, as they have 2 bed base heights: a higher one for easier and more comfortable access and a lower one for when the baby can stand up.
Moving from cot to bed is a key stage for any child. Before taking this step, we must make sure that our child has good sleeping habits. As long as the cot is safe for the little one's weight and size, there is no rush. Although there is no specific age to make the change, two years is a very good age for your child to try out his/her new bed. The best thing to do is to wait until the child demands it. We recommend making the change gradually. With small changes, the transition from cot to bed will be a success.
Our 60x120cm cots (with the exception of the NEXO / NEXOR models) include 4 wheels, two of them have a safety brake so that they can be anchored anywhere and make it easier to change their placement according to our needs.
For those cots with co-sleeping option, if you want to practice it, the height will be determined by the height of your mattress. For the rest of the cots, we recommend the upper height for the first months and then the lower one, which is the approved height so that the child cannot get out on its own.
The best sheets for a newborn's cot are those that can withstand washing and do not scratch the baby. The fitted sheets should adapt very well to the cot mattress to prevent them from coming loose when the baby starts to move around and getting rolled up in them. A mattress protector will also prevent the baby from bumping into the rails when moving and will also make your cot look much better dressed!
Take a look and choose the Alondra textile that best matches your cot.
Whether your baby gets the best possible rest depends very much on the mattress of his cot. The mattress must be firm, so that the baby does not sink into it. It must fit snugly to the size of the cot. If it's smaller, the baby can get trapped between the cot and the mattress. It's not washable, so mattress protectors are recommended.
