What height should I have the mattress base at?
If you are using your cot for a newborn baby, you should have the mattress base in the higher setting. This allows you to take your baby in and out of the cot, or attend to your baby without having to bend down too far. If you are using your cot for an older child that can sit up or is starting to show signs of sitting up on their own (for example if you used a bassinet for your baby to start with), the base should be in the lower position.
When should I lower the height of the mattress base?
You should lower the mattress base to the lower position as soon as your baby shows signs of sitting up on their own. This is important to ensure the safety of your baby. Babies develop very quickly and if you leave the mattress base in the higher position when they can sit up it won't be very long before they can climb out of the cot. When it's in the lower position, an older baby won't be able to climb out of the cot.
Do I need to assemble the Babyrest Bailey furniture?
Yes. The Babyrest Bailey furniture comes flat packed. There is a reasonable amount of assembly required. We estimate that it would take approximately 1 hour to assemble the cot and 1.5 hours to assemble the chest.
Do you have recommended installers that will assemble my Babyrest furniture for me?
Yes we do. We have a number of installers across Australia that can assemble your Babyrest furniture. Contact us and advise your location and we'll put you in touch with a recommended installer.
Do I need to fix the chest to the wall?
Yes we recommend fixing the chest to the wall behind. This is to avoid the risk of the chest tipping over. For example, if all the drawers are pulled out at once and they have a lot of weight in them, the chest may tip. Or if a toddler climbs in the drawers the chest may tip. There are holes in the back of the chest that you can screw through into the wall. You will need to source the best fixing for the wall depending on the type of wall.

The second function is toddler mode and this is when the mattress base is in the lower position - use from when baby is sitting up until it's time to move into a bigger bed.
Do you sell a change tray for the top of the chest?
