The Difference Between Cot and Cot Beds
Variance of Cot and Cot Beds A cot bed is different from a cot. A cot bed is a convertible bed where sides and lengths are adjustable or removable, or in some cases, increases the size or length of the bed. Cot beds are hence, convertible beds.
When your baby grows bigger and taller, cot bed can be turned to toddler-sized beds. Cot beds are cost-effective, sparing you from buying or carpentering beds for your kids. Cot beds differ in sizes, but larger cot beds are beds of choice for most parents as they give more rooms to their babies. Most cot beds have bedside cots. This is when you are taking care of your baby, and you don’t have to move as much to nurse your baby.
Bedside cots have removable sides. Choosing Natural Fibers for Cot beds When choosing the right cot bed mattresses, go for natural fabrics; they are nontoxic. Popularly used natural fabrics include natural wool, cotton and coconut fiber. Natural fabrics are also more durable in sunning and airing. This is because synthetic fabric mattresses are discouraged to babies as these materials most likely retain heat.
Furthermore, synthetic fibers release non-friendly gases that are harmful to babies' health.
The following are some natural fabric for cot beds:
Silk. They are smooth and slippery.
Bamboo. It has antibacterial property.
Coconut coir. This is a good choice for breathable layer mattresses.
Mohair Mat. It is made from horsetail; most durable of the natural fibers.
Silky Mohair Fleece. They are good insulators.
When Your Baby Moves Out to a Cot bed When moving your child to a cot bed, there are certain things to consider, such as the quality of the beds and the proper timing. Cot beds are long-lasting beds. Some cot beds are convertible to a sofa or chair. In buying a cot bed, disregard the price. Keep in mind that cot beds must be durable, safe and able to support your child’s weight.
Additionally, there is no defined time for babies to move out. Yet, most babies transfer from cot to bed during their 18 months up to toddler years. Cot Bed Duvet Covers Because cot bed mattresses are large and big enough to launder, cot bed duvet covers are available in the market. They come in different sizes, designs and stuffing. Some cot bed duvet covers are reversible.
