    A type of bed and product created and designed in various colors, materials, mattress, mechanisms, shapes, sizes and styles for a baby of a young child up to a specific age, with the ability to adjust the base height and mechanisms as the baby grows.

    We bought a cot that we could use from birth to three year old, as our baby got older we could adjust the base height lower so the baby couldn't climb out and over.
