Our expert testers review dozens of cots to see which ones meet Australian standards, as well as our high safety requirements. Our report reveals which cots:

  • pass key safety tests
  • are the easiest to assemble
  • have the features you need.

Our interactive comparison tool helps you find out which models meet Australian standards, as well as important specifications like weight and dimensions. Our Recommended list will help you quickly see which models come out on top. Our testers also give you key points about each product, both good and bad.
