John Lewis Anna Dropside Cot
This reasonably-priced drop side cot is made from solid birch and is available in white or natural. It made the top five list on the strength of its simplicity of function, design and ease of assembly.
The drop side, whilst obviously not unique to this cot, is a helpful feature that will make lifting your baby out so much easier, especially if you’re on the short side, or suffer from back problems. If not, it’s not an essential feature and you may be better going for one of the others on the list.
It has three mattress base positions at 21 cm, 37 cm and 53 cm and John Lewis offers a range of mattresses to suit any budget, sold separately to the cot. We recommend investing in this sprung mattress or mid range foam mattress.
KEY FEATURES: Simplicity, Price.
