The Siena cot is recommended by Choice Magazine.
Can we buy the stain used on the products in Australia from Tasman Eco?
The stains we use are not available directly from us because of how it dries. The stain itself is not available in Australia. If wanting to purchase the stain, we reccommend to take part of the cot down to a hardware or paint store and have it colour matched.

The change table has two side panels protecting the baby from rolling off. The chest top changer also has the same safety design. It is advised that the child is supervised at all times when on the change table and chest top changer.
