Hi, could anyone advise the space between the bars of the crib rail? Based on the information on the internet, the bars should be no more than 2-3/8 inches (6 centimeters) apart, so that babies can’t get their heads caught between them. I just want to ch

Asked by: Vicky
It's certainly not big enough to get a baby's head stuck - measuring the gap with a tape measure I think it's about 5cm in between each bar. Our grandson shuffled around a couple of times so he was lying horizontally across the bed, sticking his legs out the bars. For a short while he was just the right length to fit across, as it's not a very wide bed.

Does the cot have drop sides

Asked by: Fiona
Afraid not Fiona but the base panel is adjustable to 3 different heights which means that baby is still easily reachable and as he grows you can lower the base to the next level to prevent him from climbing out. Also, because of the fixed sides it's a very rigid construction, and there are no fiddly latches and catches to trap your (or baby's) fingers. Enjoy, Terry.

Does it come with a mattress pls?

Asked by: Jennifer
No you need to get one. I would just check the size of the mattress, as the cot is one of the smaller ones.

Hi- which mattress goes well with this cot?

Asked by: Hannah
We bought the Mothercare Basic Foam 120cm x 60cm at £25.00 as the cot is only for our grandson on short visits. There are 5 or 6 alternatives from Mothercare.
