Cots, cribs and Moses baskets
However, some parents skip the basket/crib - some say they hardly used Moses baskets and they take up space too. However it's a personal choice which one you go for. If you go straight for cots, IKEA sell a good range of cots and mattresses, often cheaper than other shops like John Lewis, Boots or Mothercare. Their current cheapest cot sells at £34.90.
So-called budget brands are often up for debate. It goes without saying that safety is priority, but cheaper brands still have to pass product quality and safety tests (and are sometimes manufactured by the same companies). Also good-value is kiddicare.com, their current cheapest cot at £39.99.
