    which do you think is best a cot or a cot bed?

    we where given a cot by hubbys brother, came to put it together today and its got bits missing......

    so we decided to get a new one but we are unsure which of the above would be best...

    any opinions or advice would be gratefully received..

    thanks

    I've had both when keeley was first born i had a normal cot and when she was about 9months old she could stand up in it and i didn't think it was safe even when i lowered it.. so i brought a cot bed which is massive compared to the old cot also think about when your Lo gets too big for a cot all you have to do is take the sides off the cot to make it a bed :)

    I got a cot bed - I just thought when it comes to changing them from cot to bed it's not so much of a shock.. still familiar for them.. plus saves buying a new bed too :D

    We have a M&P cot bed. George has been in it since he was 1 month old. Before that we had a swinging crib but he just kept rolling to the side and getting his legs caught in it. It was too small for him. Although he looked tiny when first in the cot bed it's suprising how they grow into it. He now takes up about half the bed and he's only 6 months!

    Here's a picture from the first few days he was in the cot. He loved having so much room to roll around. :lol:
