Perfect for transitioning through your child's different stages of development, adjustable height beds allow you to flexibility change your nursery furniture as you go.

When it comes to functionality, there's not much difference between your average cot bed and a sleigh cot. Ultimately, these types of beds are popular with parents, because they look elegant. With smooth, sweeping lines, the design of these cot beds resembles a sleigh. Aside from that, the length, and varying features are comparable. Brands like Boori, Arm's Reach and Love N Care are among those with versions of sleigh cot beds. Some also have drawers at the base for handy nursery storage.Drop side cot beds
