What are your recommendations? Is there a huge difference? :thnk

We were told to spend the money on the mattress rather than the cot. Potentially DD will be sleeping on her mattress until she is 4/5 (we got a cotbed) so we decided to go with the more expensive spring mattress. I guess it depends on how long you intend to use cot.

We also bought an expensive spring matress. At the time I read somewhere that recommended spring matresses.

Was told in the shop to get a foam mattress for a cot and a spring mattress for a cot bed as they'd be in the cot bed for longer. :thnk

hello we got a spring mattress, as one of the order poster had said cause if you have a cotbed like what i have you are better spending the money on them. i live close to the north so i brought a good bit up there but i got my mattress from 150 pound down to 70 or 80 pound in a sale in baby r us which was really good i dont know what they cost down here ,
