    Default Buying Cots online

    Hi everyone!

    Just wondering if anyone has successfully purchased a cot online, without being able to touch and feel that exact brand? Were you happy?

    Also, does anyone have a cot that has the ends closed in, not slats? Do you think this is a little restrictive to air flow or has your bub taken to kicking at the ends??

    Thanks for any opinions!

    I wouldn't think having the ends closed in restricts air flow. they have the sides of the bed slats to allow for airflow.

    We bought ours online from Cots4Tots (it's their own brand). From memory I think it was $550 for the cot, mattress and dressing table with change mat. It's not the greatest quality but it meets all Australian safety standards and looks quite good.

    I bought mine off eBay from baby sue, got the cot, cot mattress, change table and change pad for less than $450. Meets all Australian standards and really happy with the quality

    We have a cot with the ends closed in and it's fine! It's a boori that we bought in store. I would prefer to see it as we saw many that I just didn't like the quality of.

    I got my nursery package off of Cots4Tots, not sure how it is yet, it won't be delivered until mid November but pretty excited the cot looked lovely.
    It was $845 all up, cot, matress, change table which is a chest of draws, and a chest of draws, delivered to our door
