Forget those expensive cots and go to Ikea

Best high chair? (We all know it's the Ikea one really but refusniks will bring us tales of Tripp-Trappery and booster seats). Have you discovered an excellent finger food snack, toothbrush, bib or more importantly A Lipstick That Really Does Stay On?

hi
sounds good. But are the cots the 'normal' length or are they some non-standard Swedish version? I remember looking when pregnant and they seemed shorter than the normal mattress length by about 20 cm (or longer, I don't know exactly. Non-standard anyway).

tut tut. for D&V days you keep a bunch of old towels, my friend. my mum told me when dd was ill to make the bed with two towels on top of the sheets. baby voms/poos in middle of night, you remove towel and hey presto, a fresh bed lurks beneath.

we've got a really small cot that we got from a pal for dd, it's a mamas and papas one. dd's still in it at 22 months. sleeps sideways with her feet up and always has, probably because she was in a hammock for the first nine months of her life.

Bella, i implore you to consider getting one. http://www.amby.co.uk/ they seem pricey but they re-sell really well on ebay and what's money when you're talking about sleep? seriously, dd slept BEAUTIFULLY in it, and i've lent it to two people since and each time had lovely sleepy babes. plus i know a couple of other RL people with one, and it's been very useful each time.
