In a Nutshell
This swish cot is ideal for tight urban spaces as it has no unnecessary adornments. It can also be mounted on removable castors and is easily folded up
for transport or storage.
Swap one side for Bloom’s bed-rail accessory (£90 extra) and the Alma Papa, unusually, can be converted to a cot-sized bed or used for co-sleeping. The base has two positions, and it can be used from newborn to four years.
The cot is extremely solid yet can be easily moved around on its four lockable castors or quickly folded flat if being kept at, say, a grandparent’s home. It even has an optional case to keep it clean while it’s packed away.
The dropside-free Bloom cot is a very swanky designer option – apparently the Beckhams have one – so the Alma Papa should attract envious glances. And the way
it folds up is awesome.
The Bloom lacks teething rails (but that would rather spoil its urban minimalist style) and it’s slightly larger than standard.
