John Lewis Anna Drop-Side Cot, Natural
beware inherent defects!
we were initially very pleased with this cot, but one day my 14 month old was standing in the cot when she let go with her hands and sat back down sharply on her bottom (as babies will), only for me to hear a large crack! we discovered that our cot had a weak point - a knot in the wood of the base at just the point our daughter had sat. As the cot has quite thin struts (an inherently not particularly strong design, but you get what you pay for!) the effect of the knot was significant. Very very disappointed - the cot should have been thoroughly checked by JL for knots etc in strategic places, especially the base - as it was, the cot wasn't fit for purpose and should not have been sold.

Great cot with innovative drop sided feature that won't trap small fingers
We've had this cot since 2009 and used it extensively for 2 years for our daughter. The size was perfect for the small nursery room and the finish on the wood was lovely. My favourite feature is the foot-operated drop-side mechanism which means that you don't need a free hand to operate it (useful with a wriggly baby).
We recently lost the fixings for the cot as it had been dismantled and stored in our loft. However, one call to John Lewis and the manufacturer sent a replacement set of fixings through to us. Amazing customer service through and through!

So good we bought 3
We bought 2 just prior to the arrival of twins. Now we need separate cots and another for day time we are buying a third. So that's what we think of this lovely product!

Very sturdy and looks great - excellent value. I'd highly recommend it.

The Anna Cot was delivered whilst the order was still being processed - can't get quicker than that! The cot is extremely easy to assemble with no problem identifying parts; if an old granny like me can put the cot together with no other help than that of two Jack Russell spectators, then one can see the obvious lack of challenge. The finished result is sturdy and looks much more expensive than the actual cost.

This cot is easy to assemble, has a niced wood colour, doesn't look cheap and 3 base level options. My baby loves sleeping in it as it's spacious and sturdy.
