The 10 Best travel cots
Wednesday 21 December 2011
1. Mamas and Papas
Ergonomically designed, with soft-touch moulded corners and feet and their padded frame has wipe-clean covers.
Has a changing table, storage for nappies, a night light, music and soothing vibrations, a toy bar, and a raised mattress for tiny babies.
Good-value, durable and reliable, while not being too cumbersome. Has a handy pocket and the base is well padded. Not bad.
Travel cot for babies under six months. Has its own carry bag, padded mattress, removable canopy and mosquito net.
Comes in a girl's or boy's version and features a pyjama case that can be clipped to the end of the bed or used as a backpack.
Sturdy with angled sides that fit perfectly into small areas. Lasts children until they are 3 – which offsets its hefty price tag.
Quick and easy to assemble. Main advantage is its portability: it's as light as a feather and has two wheels so you can drag it along.
High-quality, pop-up travel cot. Unbelievably quick to set up and comes with padded mattress and integrated zip-up mosquito net.
Award-winning, pop-up travel cot has a self-inflating mattress, machine-washable travel mat, mosquito net and UV protection.
Solid birchwood; two mattress heights, can be folded and assembled quickly and has four lockable castors for easy manoeuverability.
