Don't confuse this one with the £81 one.,
This review is from: Baby Bedside Cot Bed Co-Sleeper yellow (Baby Product)
When I ordered this co-sleeper I was in the process of looking at this one and the £81 one. Initially I couldn't really see a difference so I went with this cheaper one, but now that it's here and built the differences are clear so I thought I'd write a review so an informed choice can be made.
This co-sleeper is still made from solid pine with an MDF base. The height of the base is adjustable but the clamp for attaching to the side of the bed is part of the cot base, so unless you have a really thin bed mattress or extremely thick cot mattress, the two are never going to line up if you want to use the clamp. To get round this issue I've set the cot to the right height and cable tied it to the side of the bed.
The top rails of the cot are simpler than the more expensive one and this one only comes with three sides and not the fourth, so this can only be used as a co-sleeper and not a small cot.
The bedding set I think is the same with the same useless mattress or thin bit of foam as the case may be.
This cot bed does not have the extendible lying area, luckily this doesn't matter with the design of bed I have but could be a problem with other designs.
Overall I'm pleased with the co-sleeper but the reason it's cheaper than the £81 one is because it has less features and a simpler/basic design.
