Obaby Maya Cot Bed + Moisture Management Mattress review
Obaby Maya toddler Bed

Parent tester - Abigail

The cot came in 3 parcels, 2 for the cot itself and the mattress. One of the boxes was very heavy but with a little help, my partner managed to get it up the stairs perfectly. The mattress was well protected, and everything was included in the boxes. There was no questioning which part goes where, or was everything included? - it was very easy to assemble! 

We absolutely LOVE this product. The pros are endless! Not only is it a gorgeous design with sleek, high-quality materials and so easy to assemble but it will also suit our daughter until she’s much older! Meaning one gorgeous purchase, for several years!

The pros also include the easy-to-change base height, the fact it changes into a toddler bed with half sides, and a full bed for an older child. We love the modern design of wipeable wood, making spills and marks (we all know grubby fingers can get everywhere!) easy to wipe away. Honestly, we wouldn’t say there are any cons! We absolutely love it. But of course, we will let you know should we discover any... but I doubt it!

We have tried a lot to have our little one settle in a bed, and in this she sleeps! The mattress is perfect for a newborn and when flipped, also suits older children, meaning they’re protected and comfortable as well not being too firm, as this is what we have found prevents our little one from getting comfortable. 

We’d say it’s quite big in comparison to other cots we have looked at, but this is no way a fault or a thought for not buying the product, as it turns into a toddler bed in the future, meaning it’s the perfect grow-with-me product. And the colour, with the white wood and natural wood bars and legs is beautiful! Very modern, contemporary and can match ALL nursery decors.

Overall it certainly does the job for us! Our baby sleeps so well in it and we absolutely love the style and that it feels such good quality.
