Q&A Forum



Hi, We will be welcoming a small 3-month-old baby to our childcare center soon. While we know that our cots meet Australian safety standards, the educators have expressed concern about placing the baby in them due to their smaller size. Can you provide recommendations or articles that I can share to reassure the educators bout the safety of the baby in our facility?

Red Nose recommends that any cot that meets Australian Standards & remains in good condition, can be used for baby to sleep in.

Have a look at their info that describes shapes that cots can be.
