Love the practicality and beautiful design!
My little baby is 6 months now and I can't wait for her to start using the nest.
Love the product and the ingenious design. Great value for money from a basinet to a table and chairs set.
I will highly recommend this product and I look forward to the years to come with our beautiful cocoon.
I have loved using this cot with my 2 children! We have been using the nest cot for 4.5 years and we have now just converted it to table and chairs and I must say what an ingenious design. It still feels sturdy and looks great as the natural timber has only ever needed a damp cloth to clean. As I work from home the design being on wheels has made life so easy as I can move it from room to room. Smart design and very practical for long term use and value
Purchased in January 2014.
Nice cot with some disadvantages
I bought this for my son and we have used it for 14 months now. The bassinet configuration is small so he outgrew it at about 3 months. The cot itself is sturdy and well made but disadvantages are that there is no drop side! Would be good to have this option especially if u have to pat your little one to sleep, not so great when they are at the lowest level. The lowest level seems to be lower than other cots which is good as prevents them from climbing out or falling over but not so good if you have to pat or settle them in cot. Also being a round cot there were not many options for cot sheets and mattress protectors. The ones that you can buy direct from cocoon are not very good quality and the mattress protector has a plastic backing which I dislike. I also found it annoying when I had to repurchase a new cot mattress (I had the older style where it had a removable cotton cover that came apart at the seams and I couldn’t be bother nor had the time to fix it, also was growing mould?) that I had to purchase them in a set with the bassinet mattress rather than just the cot mattress. All in all o probably wouldn’t purchase this cot again as there are plenty of other offerings in the market. We were just sucked in by the 4 configurations!
Purchased in October 2017 for $1,099.00.
Best idea ever
We’ve been so happy with our nest. Great long term value as we’ve been using it since our boy was a newborn and know we are using it as a cot 2 years on. Looking forward to the table and chairs, love that it’s all open an easy to move around. The mattress is also very good quality and the cot has height adjustable option. Love it,
Not as good as hoped
We liked this cot a lot initially and bought the second one for our second kid. We liked the shape and look of this cot.
The biggest issue we now face is even we lowered the bed, our 16 months boy still managed to climb out of the cot.....now we have to consider buy another bed as he is not old enough to sleep in this cot with side open but is able to climb out!!!
Mothers Group Recommendation
I purchased my cocoon nest cot after a few of the mums at my mothers group recommended it to me. I have to say the advice was spot on! The workmanship is remarkable, the bassinet on wheels is very smart and the timber look is exactly what I wanted. I highly recommend the cocoon nest now to other mums.
Not sure about quality of change table
We have both the cot and change table. Although we are happy with the cot, we have already had a broken draw on the change table after two months use!!!! We called up to ask about the warranty, only to have them say that it wasn't covered! They said it was wear and tear, but considering the price we paid, we question the quality of these products if they are to break on us after a mere two months of normal use. And they told us it would last a lifetime......very disappointed!
Liking this cot
The Cocoon nest bassinet has been terrific and the construction is very sturdy which makes me very confident and safe using it with our bubs. The bassinet on wheels is handy as we move it around the house as we need. The bassinet is also a generous size and sleep time for bub has been good.
The quality of the 2 mattresses that came with the cot are exceptional quality and I like that they are Australian made.
So far the bassinet part of this cot has been very useful, I'm now looking forward to converting to the cot.
Loved our first Nest & bought another 2
We bought the Nest for our first child 3 years ago and its been terrific. We are now having twins so its another 2 Nest cots but in different colours this time. Now that our eldest is ready for a big bed we are converting her cot to the junior bed. We've had almost 3 years of use from our first one and the quality and durability of the Cocoon nest is great. The junior bed will most likely see our child through till 4 or 5 so its probably one of the best value baby purchases we've made! We have been very happy with the cocoon cot and the best thing is the multiple uses the cot offers
Wow, this is genuinely a long term investment. I bought it when my baby was 4 months old and now she is almost one year old. We used bassinet for 4 months and now she beautifully sleeps on her cot and it feels very comfortable. I simply loved the quality of Cocoon Cot.
Perfect bassinet- minimal storage
Having been using the cocoon bassinet for 2 months and its perfect easy to move around the house and good height that bubs is at for me to lean in and pick him up! Love that I can have close to my bed at night or in the kitchen during the day!! Great that I Also don't have to store a bassinet somewhere when I'm done with it!! Having wheels is a life saver!
Great value for money!
We have just put our cocoon bassinet together and I'm in love! I've been working on our nursery for weeks now and the Cocoon bassinet has just added that wow factor for me.
The natural wood is really beautiful and I'm loving that it is on wheels. Our friends had this cot before us and really sold us on the 4 in 1 feature and the hard wood timber.
This product is such a great idea and a long term investment. My little one is now 3 and growing so quick. We have just moved her into the junior bed and the cocoon nest is still like new. We decided to go with the timber colour and the look is sensational. Such a versatile cot that has really worked well for us.
So pleased with our Cocoon cot
Our baby stayed in the bassinet for 5 months and now in the cot for 2 months and we love it. I was able to co-sleep for the first 3-4 months and moving the bassinet from room to room had made things so easy for me, as I have an office where I work from at home. The design is exceptional and the quality of the timber is worth every dollar we spent. The transition from bassinet to cot was also so comforting for bubs as it was a familiar environment for him.
This was a purchase we put a lot of thought in to, and am I am so happy we did.
Don't get it if your baby moves a lot!
The cocoon is a beautiful looking cot but not practical. After reading the reviews I bought this cot well as my friend. Her daughter moves a lot so her hands and legs gets caught in between the bars and you can't get any bumpers god it as it doesn't come with any.
I've got my daughter in the bassinet and she doesn't like it too, I think because it's too drafty for her too since it's winter. Her hands gets caught in between the bars too. Also tucking in the blankets is hard as well therefore the bed isn't cozy for her too. I've had to put her in a proper bassinet. Hopefully she likes the cot better when I move her into it.
So if your child doesn't move its s really nice got but if it moves a lot it's not the cot for u too!
Also not the best cot for a reflux child.
We have just put or nest bassinet together and it was really easy. Thank god cause hubby and I are no good with tools.
I really like the beech wood and our maternal health nurse gave it the tick of approval at our home visit due to the generous airflow design.
The fact that we can also change it from a bassinet to a cot really sold us and the 5 year warranty was the deal closer. Love it.
Smart and Sturdy design
We have purchased two Cocoon Nests, one for each of our kids and we love it. They were easy to convert from bassinets to cots and now we are using one as a junior bed. They have proven to be great quality and a substantial cost saving when you consider I got 4 items from the one buy! I recommend Cocoon to anyone wanting to purchase a quality cot. Great customer service over the phone as well & prompt service.
Great Great & Great!
I purchased the natural cot and I can not fault it at all.
We have just moved our baby into the cot from the bassinet after about 6 months and it looks amazing.
The bassinet on wheels made life so much easier and it is a very generous size.
We really couldn't go past this cot when we were out looking at furniture, it offers all options you need and the price is amazing for a beech wood product.
So happy we purchased this brand!
I saw this cot when we first started shopping around and was really taken by it & the fact that it came with such a long warranty was the icing on the cake. I can now say it is worth every dollar we spent. I am very impressed by the workmanship and the natural timber is just stunning. There is no need to purchase anything else as it converts from a bassinet, cot, toddler bed then a table & chairs set. It is great value and has good airflow for the baby.
Natural timber & healthy airflow
Quite happy with this cot
We bought this cot a bit impulsively but are quite happy with it. It seems to be well made. It is convenient that it is on wheels as we can move it around the house as need be - in our room during the night and in the nursery during the day. I also like how it converts into the toddler bed (etc) and comes with everything required for the conversion, no extra pieces need to be purchased. That was a motivating factor in us buying it, a lot of other cots that convert require an additional conversion kit that can be pretty pricey.
One minor annoyance before we bought the cot was lack of customer support from the company. While we were waiting for it to arrive I was trying to find out which size sheets would fit the cot, as well as some other info, and besides a Facebook page, it was really hard to contact them. I'm not on Facebook, but created a profile to ask a question, and it was never answered. For the record, standard cot sheets do fit, they just need a little more tucking in than usual. Also, apparently Stokke sheets fit, and I just noticed that the baby gallery in Melbourne stock sheets for it as well.
Convenient, good looking, seems to be well made
Poor customer service from the manufacturer, very little info available for it when I purchased it
