The Australian Hardwood Cot in this package has 2 base height positions for several different stages of growth from new born baby through to toddler, and is constructed according to productsafety.gov.au. The top position provides the ideal depth to use as a bassinet, next down is the normal height for a cot when baby is ready to leave the bassinet and starts to stand up. Then a beautiful and comfortable toddler bed can be created by removing one of the side panels, allowing a more active and independent toddler, to get in and out safely and easily. Our Organature Cots are NOT made with a drop side, due to safety reasons.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT OTHER BABY COTS AND CRADLES SOLD IN AUSTRALIA:
Did you know that most conventional wooden furniture is made using toxic glues and finishes? Imported timber must be fumigated before it can enter the country.
Most cots and cradles sold in Australia are imported, the majority are made in China. One cot we researched is made in Australia from imported timber, these timbers ARE fumigated. Some suppliers of cots are claiming made with ‘Australian timber’, this may be true but they send the timber to China to produce the furniture more economically! What happens when it’s returned back to Australia? Australian quarantine regulations requires fumigation of timber and timber products. Fumigation chemicals are harmful to health, and a possible cause of SIDS. Some cots and cradles are also made here with MDF, full of formaldehyde, another cause of SIDS? Glued and finished with petro chemical paint and stain, another cause of SIDS? — It’s not worth the chance.
