Anyone have one?

Looking to buy them for our twins to sleep in.

IKEA is 5 min from our house and it's means we could get everything including sheets and mattress protectors for under $600

Had an enormous sleigh cot with my first, never again!!

Had one for my second child and it was perfect. Nice and compact so it fit in our bedroom (first kid’s sleigh one we got hand me down did not fit). Easy to get kid in and out of, easy to make up with sheets etc.

Highly recommend. Great value.

My niece had one of these and it was great - just the right size for a small flat. She's a shocking sleeper mind, so didn't actually spend a lot of time in it, but I don't think we can blame the cot for that :laugh:

the choice review has it failing a safety requirement on finger entrapment, they do note it as minor

I wonder where? I haven't noticed any potential hazards.

Cots all have to meet Australian standards i think?

I have two for the grandparents houses and they're great. A friend just bought two for her twins and the nursery is beautiful.
Only advice is get a thicker higher quality mattress than the thin cheapest option.
You can actually take the side off later for a toddler bed too even though it's not sold as "convertible".

I think we got the mid-price mattress from Ikea, and it's been fine.

And yes, it's been a good toddler bed too!

We had this one and did the toddler bed conversion. Lasted until she was 5.
