    We have a drop-side cot. You have to pull the side up & push the bottom inwards/pull top outwards to click it out of the up position to lower it. And it is solid wood so heavy. DD won't be able to drop it herself (I have to use both hands & one leg haha)
    I'm pretty short so having a drop-side is so much easier. We got ours from Baby Bunting.

    The risk wasnt from babies dropping the side but from the side coming away from the rest of the cot on one side and babies getting wedged between the rails and matress. In aus the tracks are in a metal frame and have metal screws to click in where as in the US they were plastic....apparently?

    Ours is the same as Izzys Dragon's cot. I've also spent a lot of time shaking and pushing on the rail to ensure it it safe. I'm really happy that we got a drop side cot, I'm not tall so it makes it easier.
