    I have the ikea Hensvik cot and I have had no problems with it, Joseph was on the top level until about 6 months and then we lowered it. He still has loads of room, the side comes off so he really could stay in it for ages yet x

    I'm getting a ikea Hensvik cot too. The main reason is that the wardrobes etc in the room that will be the nursery ( as is most of the furniture in our house come to think if it) is from that range.
    My friend has the same one and she said it was great.

    OH and I got this one Sniglar cot

    We didn't have a lot of money to spend on one. I am more than happy with it and whilst I agree they are not huge it will last LO until they are 1 and it perfect for the size of room it is in. We did have a larger cot given to us but it just filled up the room.

    We also got the little bedside table, wardrobe and changer table

    We went to Ikea at lakeside on Saturday to get an ikea cot and mattress to find they were totally sold out unless you wanted a white one. We've ended up ordering one from Mothercare instead but got the mattress from ikea as it was much cheaper.

    I have an Ikea cot for Jacob he hangs off the bars and jumps all over it and it is fine, We have the most expensive mattress which is about £30 so still cheap,

    I felt having a better mattress was important and with Ikea having different sizes I needed the cot as well!

    Also we recently lowered it down and it was very easy to do

    I've just got an Ikea cot and it seems fine to me. The main reason I went for it is because it was much more funky looking than any thing I could find anywhere else. And with how cheap it was when there ready for a little bed I can get a lovely one from Ikea which will still work out cheaper than a cot bed from somewhere like Mamma's and Pappas
