Safety performance score
Our Recommended models meet all key safety requirements and score at least 80% for safety performance, but may fail some very minor information requirements (such as instructions and labelling).
Some lower-scoring models may still be worth considering if they meet all key safety requirements, but fail some minor points (such as finger entrapment).
Models scoring 40% or less for safety have at least one serious failure.

Ease of assembly score
We rate how easy it is to put the cot together. Models may be marked down for having many parts, poor instructions or awkward assembly stages.
enter value/s in increments of i between 10 and 75
Wheels make the cot easier to move around (but should have lockable brakes on at least two wheels).
A side that can be lowered for easy access when putting baby to bed or taking them from the cot.
Plastic strips on the top edges of the cot, so that neither baby nor cot is damaged if it's chewed on.
Junior bed conversion kit
Whether the cot is able to be converted into a children's bed. This is either supplied with the cot or available as an optional extra.

A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
