SAFETY OF A COT, AN ESSENTIAL CONDITION

Be aware that there are European directives and measurements to ensure the safety of any baby bed. These guidelines are described in the European safety standards which we follow very strictly. These safety measures align with the UKCA safety standards. When a baby bed complies with these standards, you can safely assume it's 100% safe. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to comply with the main requirements of the standard. Petite Amélie respects these directives for the baby bed and children's beds. Here are a few things:

  • The panels / walls of the baby bed must be at least 20 cm high;
  • The spacing of the bars on the baby bed must not exceed 6.5 cm.

OUR TIPS FOR CHOOSING BETWEEN A COT BED AND AN EVOLUTIVE / CONVERTIBLE BED COT SET

The advantages of a convertible bed cot set:

A convertible bed cot set has the advantage of being larger and therefore being adapted into a toddler bed when the child reaches the age of 2 years. You switch easily and quickly from the baby crib to the toddler bed. In this way, your child can sleep until their 5th or 6th birthday in the “same” bed. For them it is an easy change as they are used to their own cot bed, but with a small adjustment. They feel a bit more grown up with the rails down and the freedom of climbing in and out on their own.

In a standard 60x120 cot that is not able to be converted, your child will be able to sleep until around two and a half years old. 

BUYING A CRIB: WHEN TO CHOOSE A SIZE 120 x 60 BABY CRIB?

Parents who are expecting their first child with the long-term desire to quickly expand the family often opt for a standard cot 120x60. After two or three years, the eldest is then ready for a “big” bed while his little brother or his little sister takes over the cot with bars. Two or three years later, the youngest can take over the transition bed (140x70) and the eldest is then ready for a larger size.

The advantage? Children always sleep better in a bed that is perfectly adapted to their size!

Of course, the size of the bedroom also plays an important role. When the available space is limited, the choice of a more compact cot 120x60 is then preferred.

WHEN TO CHOOSE A 70X140 COT BED?

Future parents or young parents who do not expect to have another child after the birth of the first often choose a 70x140 cot. The child can keep his crib from birth to toddler stage without problem.

In the case of a twin birth, the convertible cot will be a wise choice because it is less expensive in the long term. 

BABY MATTRESS, CHILD MATTRESS: FOAM OR LATEX?

Are you hesitating about the choice of your baby mattress to complete your crib? 

There are mainly two categories of mattresses: foam or latex:

  • A foam mattress is breathable if the foam is of good quality and if it is made from OEKO-Tex certified materials. It must be adapted to the weight of the child. Make sure the mattress is breathable.
  • The latex mattress is very comfortable and is made at Petite Amélie using the innovative ZILVER-NANO technology which prevents fungus and bacteria. Latex is more often used after 6 months of age.

THE COT WITH STORAGE, IDEAL FOR SMALL BEDROOMS 

If your storage possibilities are limited, do not hesitate to choose a cot with the possibility of a drawer. Not all cribs and cots offer this. A drawer provides additional storage options, which always comes in handy. No loss of space under the cot!
