Serena Cot Bed FAQs

Product FAQs

It is recommended to use the Cot Bed in the higher position until your baby begins to roll over or pull up, usually at approx. 6 months.  Once you notice these signs, it is recommended to lower the height of the mattress. 

Head over to our YouTube Channel and watch our “How To” videos here.

This will depend on your child. If they are asking to move to a “big bed" or you feel they are ready to do so, the Toddler Bed provides a safe, familiar transition stage. 

We offer 2 mattress options for use with your Gaia Baby Serena Cot Bed.

a) Gaia Baby Serena Cot Bed Mattress: This is made with premium, nursery-grade foam with fully water-resistant PU cover. It comes with a quilted-cotton, zipped cover which is easy removed for washing and certified to EN16890.

b) Gaia Baby Serena Modular Mattress: This is a premium quality, 3 piece, fully pocket-sprung modular mattress. It’s fully waterproof and comes with 2 different-sized zipped covers to perfectly fit your cot at every stage. The covers are both  Oekotex Certified organic.

The First Bed is 140cm in length and should accommodate an average height child up until the age of 5. If your child is still comfortable in the bed beyond this age, you can continue to use it . Our beds are tested up to 200kg drop weight capacity so sitting or playing on the bed is also fine.

Serena Cot Bed & Bedside Crib: Your purchase includes our Bedside Crib mattress. You will need to purchase either our Gaia Baby Serena Cot Bed Mattress or our Gaia Baby Serena Modular Mattress sold separately, depending of your preferences between foam or pocket-sprung mattresses. 

Serena Cot Bed & Mini Cot: Our Gaia Baby Serena Modular Mattress is a modular mattress and the only mattress that is compatible with Mini Cot. 

Serena Cot Bed: You can purchase either the Gaia Baby Serena Cot Bed Mattress or Gaia Baby Serena Modular Mattress separately, depending of your preferences between foam or sprung mattresses. The Cot Bed Mattress is only compatible when your cot is in Cot Bed /Toddler Bed and First Bed modes.

Great question! We’re very proud of the innovation behind our modular mattress! The Cot Bed Modular Mattress consists of 3 separate parts and 2 different sized covers. When used with our Mini Cot, the middle part is removed, the two ends join together and are secured using the smaller cover (provided). When expanding from the Mini Cot to Cot Bed, the middle part of the mattress is inserted between two ends and the larger cover is used to secure.
