The 10 Best travel cots


1. Mamas and Papas


Ergonomically designed, with soft-touch moulded corners and feet and their padded frame has wipe-clean covers.

2. Graco


Has a changing table, storage for nappies, a night light, music and soothing vibrations, a toy bar, and a raised mattress for tiny babies.

3. Kiddicouture


Good-value, durable and reliable, while not being too cumbersome. Has a handy pocket and the base is well padded. Not bad.

4. Koo-di


Travel cot for babies under six months. Has its own carry bag, padded mattress, removable canopy and mosquito net.

5. Chicco


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.

6. BabyBjorn


Sturdy with angled sides that fit perfectly into small areas. Lasts children until they are 3 – which offsets its hefty price tag.

7. Mothercare


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.

8. Samsonite


High-quality, pop-up travel cot. Unbelievably quick to set up and comes with padded mattress and integrated zip-up mosquito net.

9. Nscessity


Award-winning, pop-up travel cot has a self-inflating mattress, machine-washable travel mat, mosquito net and UV protection.

10. Bloom


Solid birchwood; two mattress heights, can be folded and assembled quickly and has four lockable castors for easy manoeuverability.
