I’m due to have my first baby late March but may need a c section a few weeks earlier so trying to get things sorted.
My brother and his wife have given us their travel cot and bedside crib as their baby has just turned 6 months so doesn’t need them. I know we can’t use the mattresses and will need new ones but not sure where to get them from?
I’m worried that I’ll get the wrong ones and it won’t be safe!
should I just buy new cots?
Most cot manufacturers sell them-did you have a look on the specific sites? If not look then up the mattress size for your cots. I found Which? articles really helpful and they actually have reviews of some cot mattresses. I do recommend a Which? subscription for baby stuff! However, as long as a mattress has the right BS rating then it should be safe. Snuz do really good waterproof mattress covers-they don’t wrap around but they are very soft so don’t rustle, but have a totally waterproof inner xx
