Toddler travel beds for overnight adventures

Once your child is too big for a travel cot, it's time to consider buying them a portable toddler travel bed instead. While these can also be used for sleepovers at Granny and Grandad's, they are especially useful when you're travelling with your family and you want to avoid paying for an extra room.

What to look for in a toddler travel bed

Age suitability: Toddler travel beds tend to be designed for two-year-olds and above. Children any younger than this should be in a travel cot instead.

Ease of use: Nobody wants to spend lots of time setting up a bed, especially when you've been travelling and it's a long day. Equally, you'll want it to be just as easy to put away again.

Size and weight: As you'll be using it for travel, the more compact and lightweight your chosen toddler travel bed is, the better. You want it to take up as little room as possible, especially as you'll need to store it year-round too.

Comfort: This will of course depend on your child specifically but it's worth trying out the toddler travel bed before you set off. After all, you'll want to avoid complaints when you get to your destination.
