Smart design and very practical
This crib has been so handy and the craftsmanship is outstanding. One of the only products I found that can convert to so many options and for a great price and the bonus was the Australian made mattresses. I found the wheels that are included very handy to move the bassinet around and the table and chairs is a great addition to our child’s room now that he has outgrown the crib.
Faulty bolts (H) & Dirty hand prints all over it
The bolts (H) supplied to connect the ends arent long enough to even do so. This is made in China piece of Junk but priced at high qaulity product value point, which it is not. Dont waste your time, energy and money. Also the instructions are the worst, obviously done by someone who English is not their first lanauge.

Loving this crib
A great crib for our new born. It’s solid and versatile. Wheels on the bassinet have made working from home and moving it around so helpful. The natural timber is beautiful and the way it expands and changes is a genius concept. I am a fan and highly recommend.

The way to go
Just set up our Nest cot, and it was easy to do and the instructions are simple to follow and understand. The build quality is remarkable and the practicality is very impressive.
Having wheels is a bonus and after we finished assembly it actually fit through doorways.
So far so good now waiting for bub to arrive.
This Cocoon Nest 4-in-1 nest is a symbol of all the other ridiculous baby-gadgets that my wife brings into my life.
It is an absolute, chinese-made piece of garbage. Nothing lines up properly and it is a nightmare to deal with. It showed up with hazard stickers all over it that were nearly impossible to remove and left sticky, dirty marks all over the white finish. Knowing that, as usual, I'd be the moron who'd be dealing with the assembly I voiced my reasons for NOT buying this $900 piece junk. No, nobody listens... "it's so cute and versatil...

Great cot with Australian made mattresses
My daughter is now three and has been in the a big bed (toddler bed) for about 2 months. she loved her cot and so do we. This cot still looks as new after three years of use, a true sign of quality.
A beautiful and stylish cot that will make your bubs room unique. The fitted sheets and mattress protectors available are a great addition, and the mattress set is all Australian made and great quality!

Perfect for our Family
This has been a perfect bassinet and cot for us. We have limited space so to be able to have a big size bassinet that converted into a cot was ideal for our situation and cost effective also Our son is now using the toddler bed which he loves! It is a solid product and the design is smart and worth the money spent! Also love that the bassinet and cot are on wheels.

Moldy mattress for the third time
We have had this cot for one year and are on our fourth mattress. The staff upon speaking to the company suggested we use anti mold and tea tree oil - we did this and it didn't work for the new mattress. The design looks great but is not practical - the mattress cant breathe and therefore our baby has time and time again ended up with a horrible mattress as well as us having to buy yet another mattress. The company were not helpful in rectifying the issue either and unpleasant to deal with. Sadly I would not recommend.

2 kids later and still amazing!
By far the most rewarding purchase we made when shopping for baby gear. We purchased our crib about 5 years ago with our first bub and have now converted it to the chairs and table set after our second child used it as their bassinet and cot. Having wheels was great and the design is truly faultless as now we can use it for a place for them to play. Great value as the mattress set was included in the price and all parts are included.
DO NOT BUY - recurring mould issues
In the 2 years we have owned this cot we have had to replace the mattress 4 times - because of mould developing on the mattress base. Waste of money, a very expensive cot to purchase in the first place and having to replace mattresses makes it even more expensive. Extremely disappointed in this product.

A beautiful cot with a few impracticalities
We are happy with our decision to buy the Cocoon Nest even though it is perhaps not as practical as other options. The good - the beech wood and curved design looks beautiful and is good quality. The round bassinet is super cute and handy being on wheels for moving it around the house. We like the idea that the cot will last longer than the average cot as our baby grows up. We also found this good value as the two mattresses were included within the price.
The drawbacks for us have been: 1) our baby outgrew the bassinet at 6 weeks and had to b...

Would recommend to everyone!
This was the best decision we made. I purchased 2 Nests as i had twin boys and was looking for a cot that would transform to a toddler bed. The Nest is great because it also starts off as a bassinet which meant i didn't have to buy a separate bassinet.
My boys have now been using them for 3 years and the condition of the cot is amazing. its true what they say, you get what you pay for! Value for money and definitely worth buying .

I love the concept of this cot, but the quality and customer service are a bit of a disappointment. I purchased both the cot and matching cocoon mattresses. Upon receiving the item I was disappointed to find there were no screws or brackets. After contacting cocoon customer service I was told they would send some out provided I pay postage. I agreed and that was that. After not receiving the parts I again called their customer service only to be told I could purchase the missing parts for a cost of $50. Outrageous if you ask me. I already paid ...over $1k expecting all parts to be there. On my third and final call I was told that they could cover the parts under warranty if I provided a receipt. I provided a receipt and again that was that. I heard no more from the company and I gave up. I purchased the screws I needed from my local Bunnings for $5. BUT my biggest issue is with the mattresses and the products used to make them. After a lengthy investigation on my part I come to learn they are full of harmful chemicals, along with most standard baby mattresses the cocoon ones too off-gas. One of the biggest causes of sids. I have since thrown out the cocoon mattresses and had a toxic free organic mattress custom made to fit the cot. Knowing my baby sleeps in a healthy environment each and every night definitely puts my mind at ease.

Proven to be perfect
We purchased a Nest cot for our first child 3 years ago and he is now in the toddler bed stage and the cot has been amazing. From day one the bassinet was very handy as it is on wheels and moving it around the house was easy. The toddler bed is also a generouse size for his age as we did not want to move him into a single or double bed straight away. Now with our second child we have also purchased another cocoon cot but the evoke which is also a 4 in 1 and the bassinet is also on wheels and the design and look is great. We haved loved our 2 cots and always recomend this brand for great value for money.
Great idea that it converts and looks gorgeous however not very practical.
The bassinet is great on wheels to able to move around the house or rock baby to sleep however very small and short, our baby outgrew this by 2-3mths.
The cot has been great up until now when our baby can roll and move around (5mths old). He has had his leg stuck between the bars and it was really difficult to get him out, even caused bruising to his thigh. The spaces between the bars seem to be a lot narrower than other cots?
There are also very limited fitted sheets available, I still have been unable to find round flannelette sheets however found that standard cot sheets fit ok.

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

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 ro...und 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!

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!!!
Questions & Answers
My daughter has bought and is using this cot, but she has problems that the mattress is getting very damp and because of this is getting mouldy. She had to buy a second mattress because the first one was ruined. She has had this cot for approximately 6 weeks. She has been trying to get answers form the shop she has bought it from and the manufacturer but the last one never answers or rings back and the shop is not too much help either.
Can anyone advise on this matter please? For ventilation purposes we have even resorted to drill some holes in the base. But really we think that the manufacturer should come up with some answers. Anyone out there with a similar problem or experience?
We are having the exact same problem! The mould is on the padded outside of the mattress but not the actual mattress. Tried cleaning it and hasn't helped so now considering buying another mattress! My hubby is going to have to drill holes as well! Weird!!!
Wondering if you had any success with this. My first mattress went mouldy after about 1 yr. my second mattress is showing some minor issues too. It’s on the outer washable part as well. Always have a mattress protector on. No idea what’s going on. Really don’t want to have to keep buying mattresses
I’ve been using my mattress for 17 months and do not have this problem. I used Aden & Anais muslin mattress cover which is much more breathable than the cocoon cover that I bought from the manufacturer. Not sure if this would help.
