Your baby deserves the best – from clothes to nursery furniture! Speaking of nursery furniture, how about we show you an amazing cot bed or two? Sounds good? Let's see which Mamas And Papas Cot Bed is ideal for you!

Cot beds are an essential piece of furniture for every nursery. They will be your best friend as your baby grows, simply because once they're sleeping in their bed – you're sleeping in yours.

Naturally, not every cot bed is the same, and seeing how there are virtually thousands of options out there, we can understand how it can get overwhelming choosing the right one. So, instead of making you do all the research, we've decided to take that upon ourselves, allowing you to sleep and rest, as well as spend some quality time with your baby.

We're going to take you through our top five cot beds from Mamas and Papas, but we're also going to teach you about cot beds, tell you what to look for when you're buying one, let you in a few advantages they bring, and more.

So, without further ado – let's get started.

Our top Mamas and Papas Cot Bed picks

Before you, are the five top picks from Mamas & Papas for mamas & papas. We're quite confident that each and every single cot bed on our list will be perfect for your little one, so just relax, dive in, and possibly find the one that feels best for you.

Are Mamas and Papas Cot Bed instructions the same for all cot beds?

Mamas and Papas cot beds will arrive disassembled, and it will be up to you to put them together. However, as we all know, putting furniture together is easier said than done.

Fortunately, Mamas and Papas cot beds provide an instruction and assembly manual for each of their products. Since no two cot beds are the same, the instructions will vary from one to another.

All of the instructions are available for free download on their website, even if you don't purchase the cot bed. 

Also, try not to confuse cot bed with a cot as these are two similar, yet different pieces of baby furniture.

What to consider when buying Mamas and Papas Cot Bed

Now that we've gotten over our top picks, we thought it would be a great idea to tell you what to take into account when buying a cot bed. This will also give you an insight into our criteria for when we hand-picked these five cot beds.

Of course, other factors can come into play as well. However, we believe these are the main features that make a cot bed worth the money. But if you do think we've missed out on some other important feature that you'd look for in a cot bed, feel free to tell us in the comments!

But for now, let's go over the five features we look for when trying to hone in on the best cot beds on the market.

Mattress included

One of the main things to consider when buying a cot bed is whether the cot bed comes with a mattress or not.

This is important for two reasons. One – there are two standard cot mattresses sizes, and two – additional mattress means additional cost.

For starters, if you're buying a separate cot mattress, you need to make sure that the mattress fits inside of the cot bed perfectly. As you probably know, there shouldn't be any space between the railings of the cot bed and the mattress, so that your baby or a toddler doesn't get stuck during the night.

Of course, price is always a factor when shopping for anything – including the cot bed. While it is true that cot beds that come with mattresses usually come with a heavier price tag, that doesn't necessarily mean that you wouldn't be saving money. A separate cot mattress might be costly, especially if you're buying a premium product The search could also be tedious.

But, you'll get exactly what you want, so, it's up to you.

Height adjustment

an image of mamas and papas cot bed height adjustment

When you search for a cot bed, you should look for a model with an adjustable base height.

Namely, a cot bed with a height adjustment feature would allow you to slide the base of the cot bed up and down, based on your child's age. For instance, for newborn babies, you could keep the base lifted. That would not only allow you to easily reach your child, but it would also probably save you some backache.

In the same manner, as your baby grows, you'll be able to lower the base, to prevent them from jumping out of the cot bed and possible injuring themselves. We all know that little ones can be quite nifty, so it is important that you prevent them from doing something potentially dangerous.


As we have said when we talked about the mattresses for cot beds, there are two standard sizes for cot bed mattresses.

cot bed mattress is either 120 x 60 cm or 140 x 70 cm. That means that a cot bed will be about 125 x 65 cm or 145 x 75. But, why does size matter? Well, for two reasons.

The number one reason is the longevity, or better yet, how long will your kid be able to use the cot bed. Kids grow fast, and it is not uncommon for them to outgrow their cot beds rather early, so if we were to choose – we'd always go with a larger model.

But also, if you already own a cot mattress – you want to make sure it fits. A 125 x 65 cm cot bed wouldn't be too useful to you if you own a 140 x 70 cm mattress, wouldn't it?

Design is another factor to keep in mind, and we're not just talking about the contemporary handles, lovely railings or the overall aesthetic of a cot bed.

Sure, you'll want to buy a cot bed that looks nice and a cot bed of great quality, but then again, you will also want something highly functional.

The design of the cot bed also includes features like an adjustable base, drop-down sides, and more. Since we've already said a few words about the base, we won't repeat ourselves, but we'll talk a little bit about the drop-down sides.

These can be really useful for a plethora of reasons, but the two of the most prevalent ones are ease of access and functionality.

A drop-down side will allow you to easily pick your child up from the cot bed, without having to lean over the bed sides. It will also allow you to quickly and easily change them without having to take them out from the bed. Finally, as they get older, you might want to keep the cot bed next to your bed, with the side dropped down, so that they can climb over if they wish to cuddle or they get scared during the night.


Finally, one of the most often overlooked features of cot beds is storage.

Most people don't even think about the storage when it comes to cot beds, because they already own closets and dressers, but having a separate storage space inside of a cot bed can come in pretty handy.

You could keep diapers and other baby essentials all in one spot, allowing you to save time while dressing, feeding, or changing your baby.

In the end, here's a pro life tip – extra storage space always comes in handy.

The advantages of owning Mamas And Papas Cot Bed

an image of a side of mamas and papas cot bed

Now that we've told you what to look for and where to look for, allow us to tell you about some of the advantages that come from owning Mamas and Papas cot beds.

First up, a cot bed is a safe space for your child. It gives them more than enough room to sleep, rest, stretch, and do everything else that a baby does in a completely safe environment. Your child could sleep with you in the bed, but there's always a chance of you leaning against them during the night, potentially hurting them. With a cot bed – that can't happen.

Additionally, a cot bed is a solid, long-term, cost-effective solution. Cot beds, even the ones coming with mattresses, are relatively affordable, and what's even better about them is that they can last you for quite a long time. Back in the day, cot beds were passed down generation by generation, which speaks volumes of the longevity and durability of these. And, when you factor in that each kid could comfortably sleep in a cot bed for up to five years, you understand why this is a good, long term investment.

Additional benefits to owning a cot bed are:


Overall, getting a Mamas And Papas Cot Bed is sure to put a smile on quite a few faces. Whether you choose one of our favourites or picks one out yourself, we're sure your little bundle of joy will be sleeping like a champ!
