The Australian standards for cots are pretty stringent on exact spacers between bars, minimum height to top of cot, etc
Some people are like slinkies. Useless but still give you a laugh when you push them down a flight of stairs

I have a leaf seed cot and it doesn't have a drop side but I've never had any problems getting DD in and out and I'm pretty short! It does have a curved top (like a smile!) so this might make it a bit easier? But it is still too high for DD to climb out.

It might be different now, but when I was pregnant most of what they stocked at that shop was stock from the US so maybe it's still like that and they only sell American products that meet Australian standards.

Wow, this is an interesting thread.
I am 152cm, and DD2 is 14 months. I leave the side down and she has never tried to climb out, but she is in a sleeper sack. I HAVE to put the side down (on the rare occasions I have put it up) as I can't reach her in the bottom setting.
I started to leave it down when I had to pat her during the night to get her back to sleep, and it is murder on your back if you have to reach over the side when it is all the way up. We have the side where you push it in your knee and then it clips up,

How would you even make a cot (sheets etc?) on the lowest setting let alone get a young baby out?
Seriously, how do they do it in the US?
My baby is older now but trying to lie her down when she is sleepy is impossible with the side up.
