Mommy Guide: Tips in Choosing a Canopy for your Baby's Bed

Every kid deserves a space to call their own. Encourage sweet dreams and creative play in your child’s bedroom with a canopy attached to their bed or cot.
Canopy beds bring a lot of magic to a bedroom. They wrap you up inside of their plush embrace and make you feel safe from the world around you. A closed canopy around a bed does not only provide a beautiful space but it also offers a sense of protection to children.
Here are some of the tips in choosing the right canopy for your baby's bedroom:

Tip#1: Choose the right size

Choosing the size of the canopy depends on the type of crib that you have. For a cradle or Moses basket, we suggest getting the canopy that covers half of the cradle with a measurement of Width 320cm x Drop 135cm (approx). 

However, if you have a cot or cot bed, you may want to go for a canopy that covers all sides with a measurement of Width 480cm x Drop 175cm (approx).

Tip#2: Get the right canopy rod / holder

There are several types of canopy rod and you ought to get the one that suits your baby's bed. You may purchase them together with the canopy or separately. Here are the different variations:
