When do I need to adjust the height of the Hera Cot Bed?

Top position/Newborn
Once your baby starts to roll/turnover or pull up in the cot, this is the stage at which you must lower the mattress height to the next position

Mid position (UK/EN onlyOnce your baby is able to
sit up unaided or has reached a weight of 10kg, this is the stage at which it is recommended you lower the mattress to the lowest position

Lowest Position
Your baby can stay in the cot in
this position as long as they are happy. Generally, at age 3-4, your toddler will ask to move to a big bed. This is your trigger to transition to ‘Toddler Bed’ mode.

The Hera cot bed is made from real Ash wood.

Ash trees are drought resistant and will grow well in many different soil types. Ash wood is an incredibly hard and durable wood type. Unique amongst hard woods, ash trees capture carbon from the atmosphere, and ash furniture stores it for decades. 

We source the wood from North America and don’t use any MDF or Chipboard in our furniture and all woods, materials, glues, varnishes, paints and finishes all conform to stringent global standards.

All our items and materials are tested to meet the highest global standards and these tests include ensuring that all materials are baby-safe without any harmful chemicals.

Formaldehyde is a natural gas found in all wood and every piece naturally contains some very very small level of formaldehyde. No wooden furniture can actually claim to be 100% formaldehyde free but our Cot is 100% true/solid wood that is proven to have the lowest level of formaldehyde vs MDF or Chipboard variants.

Our Hera Cot mattress is made in the UK and all our fabrics are formaldehyde free. British standards require that flame retardant is applied to the inner of the mattress to meet BS 7177 but all chemicals used are certified "baby-safe" and do not include Brominated flame retardants or other harmful chemicals.
