    I'm definitely going with a bassinet first off,but still looking at types and brands for cots and will most likely lay buy one once bub arrives.

    Thanks so much for the information ladies. Keep it coming! I don't think we'll use bassinets. I thought it would be extra cost and I'm okay with sleeping them together in a cot to begin with. We'll put one cot in our bedroom and leave one in the nursery. Does anyone know if there are better mattresses? I feel like a mattress is probably pretty important as bubs grow. The only thing I know is to have a waterproof cover on one side. Is there anything else to look out for??

    Have you looked at the King Parrot cots. They are made by Boori but are standard size and a lot less expensive but still good quality. I have one I got second hand and it has been great.

    I'm in the same boat at the moment, I am trying to decide between the Love N Care Elite Regal cot and the Boori Sleigh Royale, the Boori is a bit more expensive but I like how they both convert to a toddler bed.

    I bought a grotime package - I love it, it is a full size cot with a papoose (bassinet) and change table that converts to a toddler bed, then a full size single bed with 2 x bedside tables. Was about $1500 including change mat and cot mattress.

    Definitely look at getting the cots that convert to toddler bed or even to a single bed. I'm sure I saw at Ikea the one that goes from cot to single bed

    Ohh I really like that idea mrsoptomistic. I wish I had found something like that for my DS. I will keep that in mind for our next little one :-)

    Love monkey, I had a crappy second hand cot with DD1 and have spent a fortune since on a toddler bed, full size bed etc for her room (shes now 5) to try and match the furniture.. With DD2 I bought this (and the matching bookcase and toy box) which just completes the room! I won't need anything else till she is a teen!

    Sorry not a multiples mum. But I just got a second hand cot/toddler bed only used for 12 months and it was in great condition, $50! I kept looking on my local FB buy and sell pages.
