Have you lost your assembly instructions and are struggling to figure out how to take down Babylo Cozy Sleeper? We’re here to help. Bedside cots are a fantastic way to keep your little one close by during the night, but when it’s time to move them into a bigger crib, you’ll no doubt be looking to sell your bedside cot or put it into storage. We’ll show you how to dismantle your Babylo Cozi in no time at all.
How to take down Babylo Cozi Sleeper
Let’s show you how to take down Babylo Cozi Sleeper. It’s easy once you know how!
Step 1: Look on the sides of the upright poles of the metal frame. Just under the edges of the bassinette, you’ll see two small, raised plastic buttons on these poles. Depressing these buttons releases the bassinette. You’ll probably need an extra pair of hands to lift the bassinette sharply while the buttons are depressed.
Step 2: Lift the bassinette clear. When you put it down on a flat surface, it will simply fold flat.
Step 3: Use an Allen key to remove the four bolts (two on each side at the bottom of the upright poles) which connect the various parts of the frame. The parts of the frame then simply pull apart.
When is the right time to move a baby from a cot to a bed?
There is no definitive right time to transition your baby into a bed from their cot. It’s important to keep in mind the weight limit of your cot to ensure your baby doesn’t continue to sleep in a crib that cannot safely support their weight or size. Every cot is unique in its weight limit, so check the instruction manual or consult the manufacturer’s website for their recommendations.
Generally speaking, most parents choose to move their toddler into their bed any time after the age of 18 months and before they reach three years old. For some, the decision is made by the arrival of another baby who needs to use the cot, or by a toddler who has become big and strong enough to climb out of the cot themselves.
It can be a big adjustment for a toddler to move into their bed, particularly if the bed will be in their room and they are used to sleeping in their parents’ bedroom. It can be helpful to chat to your little one about it for a couple of weeks before the change so that they get used to the idea. Put familiar soft toys in their new bed, or let them keep their old cot blanket for comfort.
Is there a market for second-hand bedside cots?
Many parents look for second-hand cribs and baby furniture to save money, so if you’re looking for a new home for your bedside cot, you shouldn’t have trouble selling it on. Reselling furniture once your baby has outgrown it is a great way to earn some cash for new items, and it helps to reduce landfill waste. To get the best price for your cot, make sure it looks clean, tidy and presentable.
Bear in mind that it is not recommended to use second-hand mattresses for baby cots. This is because mattresses, no matter how careful you are to keep them clean, hold onto dust, dirt and bacteria, which could pose a risk of SIDS – sudden infant death syndrome. When you come to selling your bedside crib, expect to throw the existing mattress away and sell the only crib itself.
Buyers shouldn’t have any trouble in sourcing a brand new compatible mattress. We have a wide range of baby mattresses available in a variety of sizes, shapes and materials which are compatible with many popular cribs.
Do I need additional sheets for a bedside crib?
Mattresses for cots should always be used with a sheet. This is to protect the mattress from exposure to dust, dead skin cells, sweat, spit, milk, and leaking nappies. All of these elements can contribute to the growth of bacteria or mould within the mattress which could have a significant impact on your baby’s health. Most mattresses, however, are not washable. They often have removable, washable covers, but these tend not to be particularly comfortable.
To provide the mattress with the best protection and make your baby as comfy as possible, we recommend using sheets on your mattress, which you ought to wash every two or three days.
It is a particularly good idea to use waterproof sheets or a waterproof mattress topper for your baby’s crib. This is is to prevent the mattress from getting damp and mouldy should any accidents happen. Waterproof sheets usually have a soft and cosy layer on the top which feels gentle against baby’s skin, and a waterproof layer underneath to prevent moisture from seeping into the mattress.
Are sheets for baby mattresses and cribs universal?
It would be helpful if baby cribs and mattresses were universal in size to make it easy to buy appropriate sheets, but unfortunately, this isn’t the case! Often, manufacturers of cots and cribs recommend buying their brand of sheets to ensure compatibility, but they tend to be more expensive than generic versions. To save money, look at the dimensions of your cot or mattress and look for generic sheets which are the same size.
Here at For Your Little One, we have a wide range of baby fitted sheets in different sizes to suit a variety of cots and cribs from many popular manufacturers. We know how important it is to balance budget and quality, which is why our soft, comfortable sheets are made from high-quality materials while being cheaper than many official branded options.
