A cradle for baby - safe sleep in a cosy environment

A cradle - advantages and disadvantages: The great advantage of a cradle for your baby is that with its rocking movements, it reminds baby of life in the womb, thereby creating security for baby when he or she is going to sleep. The cradle does not take up much space, and is therefore a nice, safe bed for the little one. The size also makes it easy to take the cradle around the house. However, if you choose a cradle, be aware that it can only be used for the first 4-6 months, after which it will be too small for baby.

Cot for baby - the popular and practical baby bed

A cot is probably the most popular type of cot, as it can be used from newborn up to around 3 years old. In the beginning, the bottom of the cot can be raised so that baby is not too far down when you have to pick him or her up constantly. At the same time, the cot can be a kind of playpen, where baby can lie safely and securely while you take a bath, for example. When the baby learns to sit up and stand up in bed, the bottom can be lowered. In the cot, baby cannot fall out. You can put a bed rail on the cot to make it extra cosy.

Bedside Crib - Safe and secure baby bed close to parents

A bedside crib is a fairly new type of baby bed. It's almost like a little lift on legs or "stand", which can then stand directly on top of mum and dad's bed. This way, baby is closer to his or her parents and it is easier to pick up the little one at night to breastfeed or give a bottle. If a bedside crib is the right baby bed for you, pay close attention to quality. Unfortunately, there are some bedside cribs on the market that do not yet meet safety requirements. This is probably because it is still a new product on the market. Make sure you buy a bedside crib that cannot be moved around to create a crack between the adult bed and the bedside crib, as this can be dangerous if baby falls into this crack.

Find the best baby bed

Are you expecting or has your baby already announced its arrival? A baby cot is one of the first things parents-to-be or new parents buy. The following section is a reading guide for you who want to know about baby beds and their use.

How does a baby bed work?

It is not known when the first cot was manufactured. The most common baby bed is the classic 60 x 120 centimetre cot, which consists of a bed base with vertical slats and is used for babies in their first year of life. However, some parents swear by a cradle for the first few months of their baby's life. Cribs are designed and manufactured for babies of all sizes. There are also baby duvets, baby sheets and baby pillows, as well as covers to put on the bed when the baby needs to be put to sleep. When the baby is a little older, they are upgraded to a junior bed with matching junior bedding. However, more and more beds have the option to grow with the baby, so you can enjoy it for as long as possible.

A baby bed usually has a foam mattress of about 5 centimetres, around which you can put a baby sheet. On top of this you put a duvet with a baby duvet cover and possibly a low baby head pillow, as babies don't need their heads lifted as much. Many parents choose to put a bed rail along the edge so the baby can't get a leg or arm out from between the bars. When the baby is quite young, the bottom of the cot can be raised so that you don't have to bend so low to pick the baby up. Later, when the baby is older, the bottom is lowered again so that the big baby cannot crawl out of bed by himself.

Which baby bed should you buy?

The most well-known brands in baby beds are Stokke, Sebra, My Baby Room, Leander, SEBRA and Flexa, all of which have a strong focus on quality and your child's safety and well-being. It is important to take into account what your child needs when buying a baby bed.
