It is prudent when buying items for your baby or child to ensure that the product meets current safety standards.

Select a Baby Cot or Bassinette

Select a Baby Cot or Bassinette

As your baby will spend a great deal of time in his or her nursery during the first few years, make sure you choose a baby cot, bassinette or toddler bed carefully. You’ll find many different styles, made from a variety of materials, and offered in a huge selection of colours and finishes.

Baby Cots and Bassinettes

Consider the following options to determine which cot, or bassinette will best suit your family’s needs over time.

  • Baby bassinettes: Enjoy the convenience of a bassinette (or Moses basket), which you’ll move from place to place for the first three or four months of your baby’s life. Most bassinettes feature a hood and an oval sleep area.

  • Baby cradles: Rock your baby to sleep by placing a cradle (a small bed) near your bed for the first few months.

  • Standard cots: Standard cots may have one or two drop sides for placing baby inside. Get double drop sides for more versatility. The release mechanism for the drop sides may be metal rods, trigger releases, or knee releases. Find some popular cots by BabyCo, Boori and others.

  • Portable cots: Add a foldable portable cot (or porta cot) to your nursery list to make travelling with your baby easier.

  • Canopy cots: Make a fashion statement in your nursery with a canopy cot equipped with posts and a frame for securing a fabric canopy.

Whether you get a standard or portable cot for your nursery, you’ll also need to equip the cot with a standard mattress. Many options are available, including both foam mattress and innerspring mattress. For maximum safety, however, be sure to select a firm mattress.

Toddler beds

Transition your child from the cot to a bed with a toddler bed. Toddler beds are set lower to the ground, use a standard size cot mattress, and can be found in fun styles including fire truck beds, princess beds, and the ever popular race car bed.

Get Essential Nursery Furniture

Get Essential Nursery Furniture

eBay Australia’s large selection of nursery furniture includes all of the most popular brands, including Fisher Price, BabyCo, Boori, Ikea, Valco, Steelcraft and more.

  • Baby change tables: Create a safe nappy changing area in your nursery with a change table and changing table pad. A well-designed change table holds the supplies you need to care for the baby at nappy-changing time. Get a change table with dresser drawers if you like the idea of using it when your baby no longer needs nappies.

  • Dressers or drawers: Choose a dresser or drawers that meet your needs for storing and organising clothing, nappies, and baby supplies, or maybe even toys and books.

  • Baby furniture sets: Achieve the look of a coordinated nursery with a furniture set (sometimes listed as combos or combinations), which offer similarly designed changing tables, dressers, and other pieces.

  • Rockers and bouncers: Get a comfy and cozy baby rocker to lull your baby to sleep. Baby bouncers come in a wide variety of finishes and upholstery styles and a great for baby feeding and nap times.

Decorate With Nursery Bedding & Accessories

Decorate With Nursery Bedding & Accessories

Set your baby nursery up with some special nursery bedding and nursery décor for your baby.

Cot bedding

Shop eBay Australia for thematic baby bedding sets—such as Winnie the Pooh, Peter Rabbit, Hello Kitty, Treehouse, teddy bears, princess, and many more—or decorate according to your taste. Cot bedding fits most standard size cots, cradles, and toddler beds.

  • Cot sheets: Fitted sheets should fit snugly around the mattress of the cot to keep baby safe.

  • Cot bumpers: Padded bumpers tie onto the corners or the cot, cradle, portable cot, or bassinette and should cover the entire inside perimeter of the cot.

  • Baby quilts, comforters, duvets: Use a quilt, or comforter, as a baby play mat. Soft quilts and comforters should not be placed in the cot. Use a blanket instead for sleep time.

  • Cradle ruffles: Add a finishing touch to your nursery with a cradle ruffle.

To get coordinated nursery bedding, look for collections or cot bedding sets designed for a cot, bassinette, or cradle. Sets typically include a baby quilt, comforter, bumpers, sheets, and pillow cases, depending on the intended use.

Decorative accessories

Shop on eBay Australia for a huge variety of other decorative accessories to complete your nursery.

  • Mobiles: Attach a mobile to your cot to soothe your baby. Remove the mobile once your baby can push up on his or her hands and knees, however, to ensure the baby’s safety.

  • Nappy stackers: Get a nappy stacker to store nappies in style and keep them within easy reach.

  • Window treatments: From stickers to window clings, you can find window treatments, to match just about any nursery theme.

  • Photo frames: Display family photos and baby’s first memories with decorative photo frames.

  • Lamps and lights: Find lamps and lights to create a well-lit nursery. Select a night light for late-night feedings and to help keep your baby feeling secure. Find musical lights as well that play soft and gentle nursery tunes.

  • Nursery mats and rugs: Nursery mats and rugs can add warmth and whimsy to the nursery while providing a soft spot for baby to play.

  • Wall décor: From wall hangings, stickers, unique art, clocks, and personalised items to wallpaper borders, you can find wall decor of all varieties to spark the imagination.
