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 Tommi furniture?
Yes. The Babyrest Tommi 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.

What does 3-in-1 functionality mean?
There are 3 functions of the Babyrest Tommi Cot. The first function is bassinet mode and this is when the mattress base is in the higher position - use from newborn through to when baby is starting to show signs of sitting up themselves. 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 change to the Junior Bedrail (see below question for more information). The third function is toddler bed / daybed with the addition of the Junior Bedrail accessory. This is an optional purchase and is available in standard or high.
When should I change to a Junior Bedrail?
When your toddler is growing up and is old enough to get in and out of bed by themselves, you should change to a Junior Bedrail. If you leave it too late to change your toddler may try and climb in and out themselves and fall. The other thing to consider is toilet training. Once you start toilet training your toddler, you will want them to be able to get out of bed to go to the toilet so you should switch to the Junior Bedrail. Once your child outgrows the toddler bed, you should switch to a single bed.
How can I purchase the Junior Bedrail?
You can purchase the Junior Bedrails here or from a Babyrest furniture stockist. We have 2 options: standard and high. The standard one is a similar height to the mattress. The high one is higher with a cutout down to the height of the mattress - this will stop your child from rolling out of bed, but also allows them to get in and out.
Do I need one or two Junior Bedrails?
This is up to you. You only need one side to allow your child to get in and out of bed themselves. However you may prefer the look with both cot sides removed and replaced with Junior Bedrails.
How long is the warranty?
3 years for the Cot and 5 Years for the mattress.
