I would like to replace our cot but I am so confused. The last one I bought second hand it was a Kingparrot which I think are made by Boori but their budget version and a regular size. It did DS 3yrs and had a few other kids in it for short periods before he came to me. Having been used a couple of years before I got it I think it's done it's duty. So as most of you know I do foster care and can have little ones from 0-2yrs come to stay for short term or for a forever home and I need to be prepared on a few hours notice. I need one that will last years as I will continue to FC as long as I am physically able. At the moment I'm tossing up between the Boori Classic and several Grotime ones.
What cot do you have and do you like it? Has it been solid and long lasting? Is a Boori cot worth the extra? Those with Boori do you find the larger size a benefit or a hindrance?

I have a boori and a gro time. I like that my gro time goes to a king single bed and also the quality has been fantastic.
I paid full price but would get second hand next time I got the diamond one

We have a Grotime here. It's 4yrs old now and has been through 2 kids. It is as solid as the day we got it! It has been put up and down a few times (storage, moving etc) and have had no dramas. Cosmetically it's not 100% but we'll still keep it for when we are ready for #3.

I got a Boori second hand. I didn't realize it was a larger size than regular but I love its size. My large 2yo fits in it perfectly with quite a lot of spare space
We are moving him to a single king bed. If we weren't we would have been happy to leave him in the boori modified as toddler bed for a couple of years.
Worth the investment IMo. I love that their dropped side is very quiet. Nothing like struggling to settle a baby and then waking him up with a stupid loud cot.

I forgot to add (some of the gro time cots are bigger) I just bought KS sheets as eventually dd will be in a KS. So I pull them over tight.
Your doing a wonderful thing. I didn't realise you did this 😇

I have a Boori that I bought secondhand off a friend. It's been used for both her two boys and now my DS. It's still in excellent condition and we've been really happy with it. I like that it's solid and a bit larger. I'm planning on using it for DS as a toddler bed so even if I'd paid more for it I think it would have been worth it.

We have a Boori that is now 7 years old and still like brand new. DD3 is currently using it as a toddler bed. I think its worth that extra money if you're planning on using it for a while.

What about no drop side cots? I was looking at a couple of baby shops today and found it's becoming more common. I was thinking most were drop side these days but apparently not.
