Baby bed advice

Which cot fits me? Fast and uncomplicated to the right model

Especially online, the selection of baby cots is really huge. But with a little luck, you’ll be able to avoid having to browse the various shops for hours before you find the right one. Because our recommendations on this page we have chosen so that for every taste and every budget should be something. Which of these 6 cots fits best with you, we can find together quite straightforward.

You know which baby bed style you prefer? Then jump directly to your recommendations:

Type A:

“I would like to use the cot until infancy especially and have no problem that the grids are partially preserved after the conversion.”

Recommendation 1: The unbeatable saving tip Schardt Felix

You can hardly wait for your darling to get a new bed as a toddler? Finally, with the larger cots again completely different designs to choose from, u.a. the popular car or princess beds. If your sweetheart should only sleep in his cot for as long as necessary, you do not necessarily have to spend a lot of money for it. You can save some money if you decide instead of a baby bed with the standard dimensions 70×140 cm, for the slightly smaller version in 60×120 cm.

According to the miBaby survey, the small IKEA HENSVIK was even the most frequently bought by parents at a baby bed low of around 80 euros (13%). However, we recommend you an equally cheap alternative with better extras. The lying area of ​​the Schardt Felix can be adjusted for a more comfortable in and out of your baby namely once more in height (3x). It also has, unlike the IKEA competitor, three removable slip rungs through which your child can later get out of bed without dangerous climbing actions. For the small money remains with both a disadvantage: It can not remove a complete grid side.

Recommendation 2: The practical combination of baby and additional bed Roba

To breastfeed in the night you would have found a side-bed actually more practical? Unfortunately, these are quite small and often only in the first half year in use. For the transition would therefore have a second, normal baby cot ago. The perfect solution: The Roba Roombed! It has “only” the dimensions of a small baby bed with its 60×120 cm, but a much larger lying area than side beds.

Overall, your sweetheart could easily sleep in it for at least three years. Because one side of the bed is variable. For use as an extra bed you take the fabric side with zipper, through the opening of which you can easily get your little one to you in bed, without getting up for it. As soon as you prefer to place the cot in the baby room alone, the fourth grid side is included in the same place instead. And if your sweetheart no longer needs the protective grille, this is simply removed again and placed with the mattress completely down, creating a small but fine junior bed.

Recommendation 3: The round trend baby bed ComfortBaby SmartGrow

On this stylish baby bed you can hardly miss on social media. Because as a change from standard rectangular cots, the ComfortBaby SmartGrow is a real eye-catcher at home because of its special shape and is therefore becoming more and more popular with parents. Also in our survey ComfortBaby made a very good 5th place on the list of the most popular baby bed brands.

Built as a round mini-bed, this model is about 80 cm long, so perfect for the first half of a year. It can also be flexibly used in various rooms as a substitute for living room by means of optionally mountable castors. A second element can be used at the beginning as a mini-changing table. Next, this is then placed in the middle of the cot. In the next mitwachsstufe it becomes about 130 cm long oval cot, in which your sweetheart can sleep for about three years. As soon as he starts his first attempt at climbing, you have the opportunity to remove the middle part of the lattice, creating a small junior bed with safe entry and exit.

The perfect baby bed for you was not included in this Top 3? Then take a look at our recommendations for Type B, the slightly larger cots, which can be reared without visible grid to junior bed. Because even if you want to buy a new bed in infancy and the longer useful life does not want to fully exploit, these three models can be from about 140 € at least in the first one to three years, a safe and pretty sleeping place for your little dreamer.

Type B:

“I would like to be able to continue using the cot for as long as a junior bed without lattice as long as possible.”

Recommendation 1: The bestselling baby flower Cuba

With my recommendations, of course, the currently most popular baby bed on Amazon could not be missing. Many satisfied customer reviews and a good price-performance ratio finally speak for themselves. Especially well thought out: Thanks to the rather large lying surface of 70×140 cm and the possibility to convert it to a junior bed, your darling could sleep in it even from the very first night until about the time of enrollment. How does it work that the baby flower Cuba is no longer able to see its previous life as a baby cot at all? For this, the head and foot sections can be halved with oval ornamental milling and the long sides of the grid completely removed.

Recommendation 2: The complete set Roba Lukas

To a cot belong to you heaven, nest and Co. just to? Then it makes sense to opt directly for a model in which the desired accessories are already included in the delivery. Like the 70×140 cm Roba Lukas. Here you can choose from many cute designs for the textiles and even a matching mattress is already there.

Afterwards, it can then be converted into a completely latticed junior bed, which can accompany your sweetheart for up to six years. Roba was also the second most popular baby bed brand (bought by 18%), right after IKEA, according to our big miBaby survey of 1,030 mommies and dads.

Recommendation 3: The Space Miracle Schardt Clic

You can never have enough storage space, right? In the two large drawers under this cot with the dimensions 70×140 cm can accommodate a lot. Ideal for small rooms or if you want to have change-bed linen and Co. always comfortable in the vicinity ready. The drawers are also available in different colors, which stand out from the rest of white and make it a chic eye-catcher. If you like, this practical piece of jewelery can be converted into a junior bed for a few more years. Unfortunately, you would have to order the necessary conversion parts separately for a price of around 30 euros.

Baby bed information

When should I order the baby cot? How long can my child sleep in the cot?

When the first cot has become obsolete, depends entirely on the development of your child and the dimensions and conversion possibilities of your bed.
For safety reasons, models that do not allow any bars to be removed should be replaced after about 1 to 1.5 years for a new junior bed. Because as soon as the little ones start to climb over the grid and can not get out otherwise, it gets dangerous.

You have decided directly for a bed that has sprouts or can be converted by removable grid sides to junior bed? Then you really have to come up with something new, if you want variety, or if your sweetheart has outgrown his first bed.

A general guideline is: The baby bed must be at least 20 cm larger than the child. In a small, 120 cm long model, your sweetheart can sleep so long until it is 1 meter in size. On average, children are then about 3 years old. A larger, 140 cm long cot could be used up to a height of 1.20 m. This size is reached on average only about 6 years.

When can I remove the bars?

As soon as your sweetheart is so physically fit that he starts to climb over the bars, there is a need for action for the first time. For the transition usually the slip rungs are taken out first. So the minis can crawl independently but surely out of their cot and would still be protected from falling out while sleeping through the remaining bars.

If your cot can be converted to a junior bed by one or two detachable grid sides, then theoretically you could also try it quietly without bars for about 1.5 to 2 years. The exact time when you use the crib completely open, but you decide for yourself. It depends on how your favorite feels better. The limitation by the grids gives some children security and security, while others feel that they are too tight.

No matter when it’s time: For safety’s sake, you can take for the first nights without a grid but also a few small tricks to help. Temporarily, many parents present at night, e.g. Place a chair in front of the open bed side (s) or place a rolled up blanket there. If this works well, Step 2 can instead be a mattress or thick blanket placed on the floor in front of the bed as “emergency protection”. Your sweetheart did not fall off anyway? Then you can now officially say goodbye to the bars without any aids.

When should I lower the cot?

The top level is safe enough for your baby until it can sit itself up. If only very short and shaky. So for the first six months. Then the mattress should go down one level. If your baby bed is three times height adjustable, that would be the middle level. On this your baby can sleep until it begins to pull up on furniture and Co. So it is with many babies from the ninth month so far.

Small world explorers, who can slowly but surely put themselves down, are then on the lowest level of the bed but just in the best hands. But these are all just approximate times, because every baby develops individually. Just watch your little darling attentively during the day, so that you can not only proudly celebrate your next milestones, but also be able to adjust your baby bed accordingly.

What accessories do I need for the baby bed?

To sleep, your baby really needs only the appropriate sheets and a sleeping bag except for his bed and mattress. Many moms and dads also put on a waterproof mattress on the mattress to protect them, if at night time a diaper should leak. In summer, an air-permeable insect net can protect against itchy mosquito bites.
In addition, midwives, doctors and other experts actually advise against further baby crib accessories.

Because to keep the risk of sudden child death low, the air around your baby must be able to circulate as freely as possible. However, according to our large 1,030-participant miBaby survey, it was still important for 20% of parents to have a bedding kit from the sky, cots and bedding included in their baby cot. For visual reasons or to protect the baby’s head from bumps on the bars.

When should I order the baby cot?

Furniture is one of the purchases for the baby equipment, which you better not push too far back. Especially if your sweetheart is to sleep from the first night in his new bed. For one thing, the delivery times for furniture are often quite long. While buying online you may be lucky and the bed is there after 2-3 days. But it can also be very good that you have to wait for delivery for up to 3 months. But that’s not all. Because you know it definitely: new furniture always smell pretty strong. Therefore, it is ideal if you let the new baby furniture first for up to 4 weeks extensively.
