St Kilda Mums check all donated cots and other nursery products to access their suitability
for re-homing.

Safety is of primary importance to us. St Kilda Mums is not legally obliged to meet all the
current mandatory safety requirements that apply to the sale of new or second hand
products, however we choose to check each and every product to these standards for the
benefit of the recipient.

The following items have mandatory safety standards - prams, strollers, change tables,
cots, portacots, highchairs, car restraints, and bouncers. To check whether your donation
meets current mandatory standards please see the product safety checklist on the contact
page of our website. Alternately you could send us a photo and description (make and
model, date and country of manufacture) of the item you have to donate and we should be
able to advise.
