I have been eyeing the Stokke Sleepi baby cot for our future baby for a while. With the upcoming arrival of Baobao, we browsed through various cots online but nothing was as outstanding.
For a bed that can sleep your child from birth to 10 years old, the savings and convenience of not having to change it are definitely worth it.
However the exorbitant price tag of S$1,500 (without the extension kit!) was off-putting. Not to mention the cost of the additional accessories that complemented it.
The mattress alone is S$329.
When it came to our wedding, house renovation and baby products, most of the time we turned to China. It’s the largest manufacturer in the world and if you know where to look, you can get the best quality products for a good deal.
After some searching, a China brand Crowned Love had a perfect copy of my ideal cot.
While the Stokke Sleepi is an oval cot before extension, the Crowned Love Alice cot is perfectly round, thus proving to be a tiny challenge for us in obtaining accessories. But that is for another post.
For the first few months, the extendable part of the cot also functions as a changing table for baby!
- 1 extendable cot
- 4 mattress parts to cover 0-10 years
- 1 mattress cover for 0-3 months
Total damage including shipping to our door: S$410.22
All we had to do was to assemble it.
