This cot is ideal for trendy parents who look for design, safety and quality in the same product. Once the baby outgrows the cot, it can be assembled as a small bed, which lengthens its useful life before the child sleeps in a junior bed. Mattress, textiles and decoration items not included though but this is one ideal piece of furniture that parents would seek for.
