Baby cot for holiday

Postby flowersinlondon » Fri, 08 Mar 2013 3:14 am

We are going to be in Singapore for 2 weeks on holiday at a rented apartment. But the apartment does not come with a baby cot for my little boy.

Does anyone know how I can get one for 2 weeks? I don't mind buying something second hand, but not sure where to start looking. Is there a freecycle concept in singapore?

Any advice / suggestions greatly welcomed.

1. Ebay (lots of reasonable 2nd hand in the range SGD40-100)
2. Ikea (going very cheap you will manage to buy one with a mattress for ~SGD100.

3. Depending how old is your son, travel cot:

We used this one with our then 6mo for traveling but it was never longer than few days.

Just google.com.sg for "baby cot for sale" you will find plenty of classified's sites that have ads for used baby cots. We got ours for 50$. It can be easily dismantled and brought home in a taxi.

Go to The Salvation Army shop on Serangoon Road when you land, they have dozens of the foldable play pen/cots for $20 or so and you can donate it back when you're done.
