About Us...Aussie Cot Net Co

Aussie crib tent designer

Owners, Designers and Manufacturers.

How and why it all began. July 1998

It's 4 am My Baby Ashley is crying, he's in pain. I found him with his little leg, arm and shoulder stuck tightly in the crib rails, he was face down making it hard for him to breath.

Yes, I panicked. The Doctor told me "Ashley was very lucky as he would have suffocated left in that position”

That night I designed and made Ashley the world first Crib Safety Tent! Ashley slept safely. No getting stuck, No climbing or falling out of his crib!

22 years on and thanks to Ashley's misadventures in his crib, this Crib Tent continues to provide babies a "Safe Sleep Zone"

Ashley and I are very proud of our achievements, we are passionate about what we do and knowing that every day we help a family to keep their baby safe in the crib, makes our day!

Now in 2020 Ashley is a happy 22-year-old young man, studying for his masters in Marine Biology and working with his Mother, Michelle in the family business. Aussie Cot Net Co.
