We spoke to these real parent testers to get their review...


How did this product make your life easier?

Victoria: This product is incredibly easy to put up and down. I really like the fact that you can use it in bassinet mode for a smaller baby. The mesh fabric provides great peace of mind knowing baby is less likely to overheat and also promoting safer sleep with a reduced risk of the baby suffocating if their face ends up against the sides of cot.

Clare: This was by far the easiest travel cot i have ever put up. it went up first time, straight away. No messing around with clicking one side up before the other, or pressing down the bottom in a particular order. it was also just as easy to put away. The infant insert is also easily removable and could be cleaned if required.

Charlotte H: This pushchair is fantastic to fold up and put into the car I have the i candy and it’s a lot easier to fold up and open up as you don’t need to take the top off and fold up separately and I like the fact you can still keep small things in the basket and fold it up. I like the way the hood comes over far aswel to keep the sun out it was easier than using a Parasol. The car seat was also easy to get in and out of the car save strapping it in was a lot quicker

Would you recommend this product to other parents?

Jackie: I like that you can see through the mesh from the sides, so that even if baby is crying you can tell they are okay whilst you try to get some chores done around the house. It was a good size, very sturdy and easy to carry around. It fits in the car well too so you could take it on trips away easily.

Natalie: I would recommend this product as it is very easy to put up and down. The materials used are very good quality, the mattress that comes with the travel cot is the best I have ever seen it is padded and feels soft and comfy my little one loved taking a nap in this. The bassinet can also be taken out when your little one gets old enough this aswell was very easy to take down and put back on.

Louise: The size is perfect – I've had travel cots in the past that are too small and can't be used past around 6 months, this one would easily last a lot longer. My partner has just taken it down to pass on to the next person and it took around 60 seconds. The bag it comes in is smart and easy to carry too. It easily wipes down when there's a spill.

Would you choose this product above all others on the market?

Charlotte M: Yes I would choose this product over others on the market because not only is it easy to use but it looks great too. Nuna products are so sleek and stylish in my opinion and the Sena Aire is no exception. It’s spacious and comfortable, well made and very user friendly. It’s not too heavy either when transporting.

Dawn: Definitely because of the size of it. I've got my baby in it most of the time and she likes the room to practise turning around. I think a lot of travel cots compromise on foldability by reducing size. I would pay full price for it because it feels like it will last for a very long time due to the quality.

Katie: 200% yes. I have had 2 other travel cots both of them being flimsy without the adjustable height. This product makes me want to use a travel cot and take my own rather than use a supplied one. Its really easy to use and looks nice and big enough to use as a play pen as well to give me a break to get ready and have a shower etc.

What changes would you make to this product?

Rachel: I would change the price. retailing at £180 is pricing itself outside the general market value. if you did that i would choose this as my travel cot. I would not be so worried about the weight but i would again suggest future models of this weight should have wheels. If you think about what us Parents would need to carry say on holiday, dragging this around a hotel is not practical but if you added a wheel system to the external bag, you would make our lives so much easier.

Hayley: I would definitely change the size of this product I feel it's a little to big compared to others on the market. I actually compared it to just a bog standard one I already had it was absolutely massive which I feel isn't really nessasary. So I would just change the size maybe but that's just my personal opinion.

Hannah: I don't know how this would work but I would like it to be raised a bit. I also think it needs more than one person to put it away because it seemed like I didn't have enough hands on my own. It takes quite a lot of strength to fold it in then you have to stretch the material quite a bit to get it to go around and lock in.
