Many Baby Cots, particularly cheaper ones from online only stores and market places such as ebay are selling cots with trundle drawers attached to the cot. There is a number of good reasons not to buy a cot with a trundle drawer attached to the bottom of the cot which include safety. We have tested cots with an attached trundle drawer that are sold online only for our own education purposes and market research. We were asking ourselves, should we put pressure on our vendors to do this as well.
This cot weighed a ton and was extremely structurally strong! Mind you — this cot did not have a drop side either — it was a fixed side cot — which is where most of the issues come into play.
Read on to see the reasons not to buy a Cot with Trundle Drawer Attached which we have listed out below. A Cot with Trundle Drawer Attached can unbalance the cot when loaded. When testing is done on cots, they do not test it when the drawer is loaded up with bedding etc. If we loaded it the way most mums and dads would in reality with uneven weight on one side of the trundle, the problem was even worse!
This in our experience can cause a tipping problem. When we tested with weight — especially uneven weight, the structural integrity changed. The cots did not sit squarely as they should.
In fact, it caused it to no longer be square and effectively twisted. This increased the gaps at one side and closed gaps at the other side or corner. For those who do not know, gaps are made and measured with extremely low tolerances to meet the Safety Standards. This was an epic fail in our opinion when items were placed inside the trundle drawer that was attached to the cot.
The drop side became jammed and very difficult to use. This would be an extremely frustrating issue and caused scratches and damage to the sides of the cot and drop side itself. I would hate to have to argue that under warranty with one of these suppliers, i can see that is something they would blame on miss-use.
We found it difficult to load up properly and practically because the trundle drawer could not be pulled all the way out and a substantial amount of space was not easily accessible. Because the trundle drawer is attached to the cot, they are usually not very deep and therefore there was still a lot of wasted dead space under the cot — the whole idea of a trundle drawer is to be able to utilise the dead space under neath the cot.
This defeated the purpose. With a typical load of bedding and baby clothes, the rails which the trundle drawer slides on began to bend out of shape causing it to jam and be difficult to us. Once again, I can see a recipe for problems with warranty claims being denied based on over loading being miss-use.

When using a cot with trundle drawer attached, it makes quite an amount of noise when rolling the trundle drawer in and out. This means that you will not want to be accessing the trundle drawer whilst baby is sleeping. Yet this is in reality, a prime time that mums take advantage of, to doing washing and pack clothes and other items away when you want to use your trundle drawer.
