When shopping for your babies first bed, there are a few things you need to consider. What are the things that are most important to you when buying a Cot? For most people it's cost and functionality. Having a 3 in 1 Cot seems to be on the top of most peoples must haves when shopping for a cot.
Why buy a 3 in 1 Cot?
The great thing about 3 in 1 Cots is the length of time you can use them. They have the bassinet level from newborn to around 6 months or when your baby is sitting.
Then you can lower the cot base to use for the next two years. Its best to buy a cot that does not have drop down sides. This is for safety reasons and functionality. Less chance of little fingers getting jammed and also latches breaking. Check out our range of Cots at Godzown General Store here.
When your little one starts to climb out of their cot, for their safety its best to put them in a toddler bed. Having a 3 in 1 Cot means you don't need to purchase a new bed which can be a few hundred dollars you can simply remove the side rail and add the toddler bed rail. Which is included with the Babyletto cots. Creating a new big kid bed. Some 3 in 1 Cots do not include the toddler rail and sell them separately. Always check this when buying your cot.

When you feel comfortable your toddler will no longer fall out of their bed you can simply remove the toddler rail and your 3 in 1 Cot becomes their first big kids bed. Small enough that they still feel secure and safe in their own environment but cool enough that they feel like a big girl (or boy).
If you spread the cost over five years the average 3 in 1 Cot which normally costs around $799 is very cost effective. No need to purchase a toddler bed (plus new mattress) and then a single bed. Saving you plenty of money.

All three Cots include the toddler rail which we think is very important so you don't have to purchase anything extra in the future. We've also based our picks on how easy they are to put together. This is very important when you are heavily pregnant and don't need any added stress. Most importantly buy a 3 in 1 Cot that you like the look of. Look for clean lines that won't date and will be easy to match with other furniture items in your nursery.
