My personal favourite baby cot is so smart it actually grows with your baby. This oval-shaped cot cuddles like a nest and the sides grow out til age 10. While the price tag starts at RM2000, there are loads of other amazing and innovative stokke baby items for you to choose from second hand.

Here are a few things to look for when choosing the cot for you :
- Drop Sides (make sure to test that it is easy for you to get your baby in and out)
- Adjustable Base Height for when baby grows (make sure it is sensible)
- Good cot mattress (look for breathable ones that allow circulation for baby movements) A fellow mommy suggest Fibre + Latex as it is just in the middle for firmness but breathable
- Teething Rails (might be a tad early to think about but a definite must)
