Best Travel Cots

If you travel a lot or your baby will stay with other people regularly, you may want to consider a travel cot.

They’re usually lightweight and fold up for easy transport. 

Depending on when you plan to use your travel cot you should consider how small it is folded up. So if you’re going on a plane will it fit in a suitcase or overhead locker? If you’ve got to drag it up a load of stairs what does it weigh? 

It’s also worth thinking about the cot’s lifespan - what age is it suitable for and can it double up as a playpen as your baby gets older? 

And one final hint - don’t leave the first time you put it up and down until 11 pm after you’ve got off a flight and coach journey. You will regret it! Try it out a few times at home and practice so you don’t get caught out with a wailing baby. 

You’ve got to find the travel cot that works for you but we know other mums often come up trumps with recommendations. So we asked our 70,000 + strong community for their top picks.
