Life changes don’t get much bigger than bringing a new baby into this world. It’s a lot to prepare for (I am currently in baby count down mode myself), but the good news is Tinitrader is here to help!
We’ve selected some of our favourite cots from Australia’s leading brands to help you find the perfect cot for you and your new bub.
We have tried to carefully balance beautiful design with practicality and safety in selecting the cots. We hope our cot selections inspire and excite you in the lead up to your little one’s arrival.
1. Stokke Sleepi Bed
Modern, stylish and simply a treat to admire, the Stokke Sleepi Bed was an easy choice for our top cot picks. Made in Norway, the unique oval four-in-one crib grows with your baby, suitable from 0 to approx. 3 years.

2. Boori Lucia Cot plus convertible toddler bed
A brand tried and trusted for over 20 years, the Boori Lucia cot strikes the perfect balance between style and function. This understated beauty converts from cot to big kids bed up to 5 years.

Love a little Scandi in your life (or latherings of it like me?). The Leander Cot has become quite the coveted piece of nursery furniture for those who delight in modern Danish design.
Like it takes Clark Kent only a second to become Superman, the cot converts into a toddler bed with the simple twist of an Allen key!
Plus, it also comes with a ventilated cold foam mattress, ecotex-treated quilted thermal wool mattress cover, toddler bed conversion and mattress extension, babysitters not included. Made from FSC certified Beechwood and just totally cool, its irresistible curves will add style to your nursery like no one’s business.

Offering style and practicality without breaking the bank, its simple, clean timber lines and super trendy grey tones make it an easy piece to style in any room or décor.
Suitable for newborns up to 2 years, the bed adjusts to high and low modes and the slatted sides provide lots of airflow to keep bub cool and content.
