Q We have re­cently been given a sec­ond-hand cot and would like to re­fresh it be­fore our baby comes. Any ad­vice?

First of all, try us­ing an eco-friendly paint strip­per, such as Eco So­lu­tions home Strip paint & Var­nish re­mover to get rid of lay­ers of old paint or var­nish. This prod­uct is wa­ter-based so won’t harm you or your baby. And, for a fresh lick of colour, we rec­om­mend paint from The Nurs­ery paint Com­pany, which is made from sus­tain­ably sourced soya beans. be­cause the prod­ucts meet the cer­ti­fied stan­dard for toy paint, they are safe if your lit­tle one de­cides to chew the cot (though we can’t vouch for the flavour). They also come in a range of charm­ingly named colours, from sea­side-blue grandad’s Shed and sugar-pink rosie Cheeks, to dove-grey hush. The gov­ern­ment ad­vises all par­ents to buy a new mat­tress for ev­ery baby.
