Your little one’s safety is the most important consideration when choosing a cot bed, that’s why all our cot beds meet EN 716-1-2:2017 & BS 8509:2008+A1: 2011. They’ve been tested with specialist machines designed to ensure they’re fit to withstand the wobbles, jumps, knocks and bumps of family life.
All our cot & cot bed mattresses meet BS EN 16890:2017. They’re tested to ensure they offer maximum support and comfort for your baby.
We care passionately about our planet and your home, that’s why we use sustainable materials wherever possible and adopt processes that reduce our impact on the environment. Our timber is sourced from FSC-certified plantations and our paint finishes are nursery-friendly for complete peace of mind.
We use state-of-the-art laser measuring technology to optimise our wood and use as much of it as possible. As less timber is wasted, we use fewer trees to make our products.

Once you have received your Boori wardrobe you might notice that the doors have a gap between them, this is easily solved by adjusting the hinges.
Please see below details on how to adjust the hinges in your Boori Wardrobe.
Use screw 1 to adjust the doors from side to side. Turning the screw in a clockwise direction moves the door closer to the edge of the cabinet. You can adjust both the top and bottom hinge to move the doors closer together or further apart.
If you loosen screws 2 & 4 the hinge backplate can be moved up or downwards.
Please note, screw 3 attaches the hinge to the fixing plate.
It might be that the insert on the base has moved round in transit and is out of alignment. You will see on the base there will be a silver insert/bolt and if you look in the hole where the screw will go it might be slightly turned. If you turn the silver insert/bolt to re-align it this should solve the problem.
Please see the images of the base insert/bolt, you will need to adjust it slightly to make sure the holes line up like the other picture.
Teething is a natural stage of development that every baby goes through. During this phase, your baby will chew on many different objects to ease the irritation brought on by teething. Babies chewing on their fists, their toys and their furniture is normal, but it can be alarming to you as a parent! Check NHS Guide on how to helping your teething baby.
All of Boori Cots and Cot Beds meet strict UK & European safety standards and all of our paints are nontoxic so will not harm your little one if they decide to have a gnaw on their cot bed! If your teething baby is able to stand, the top of the side rail may line up perfectly with your child’s mouth. This makes the cot side rail the perfect option to soothe your baby’s inflamed gums. Cots and cot beds are of course not designed to be chewed on and there are products on the market to help with this.
