The SpaceCot comes with a soft, comfortable, foldable mattress, creating a snug, cosy place for your baby to sleep. The mattresses built-in base keeps the lightweight travel cot firmly on the floor, so your child can sleep and play securely. It has an airy design for added visibility - the sides of the SpaceCot are made from soft mesh fabric allowing your baby to breathe freely.
Would you recommend this to other mums?
Jo: I like the foldability. It is so easy and effortless to set up or pack away. The setting for new babies and toddlers means you don't have to have two separate travel cots. You can buy this and use it from birth without worrying about them outgrowing it. The travel cot isnt bulky and when set up it is quite compact.
Jamielee: I would recommend this product firstly because it is so easy to put up, with a few simple clicks you can put the space for up within a matter of seconds. I would also recommend because the quality is amazing. No one wants to put their baby into an unsafe sleeping area and this travel cot ensures that you don’t have to.
Louisa: I loved the speed of setting up which is second to none. Packing it away is just as simple. It is great to find a cot that is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre. I had a caesarean so moving bulky heavy items was out of the question. I was able to lift this into the car without help. The sleek design with neutral colour helps it blend with décor.
How did this product make your life easier?
Stephanie: This product makes life so much easier when we take my daughter to her grandparents or our friends. We have also used it in hotels and even set up in our caravan awning for naps. It is just so simple to put up and down.
Chloe: It is so simple to use. It is easy to put up or down and lightweight enough to carry or move around the room if need be. I love the fabric and it makes it super easy to clean. You just wipe it and you're done! It makes life easier if you are travelling as its light weight and small when folded. It will fit it in your car better and it is very quick to put up once you've reached your destination.
Kirsty: This product is perfect for trips away and fits nicely flat in the boot of a car, taking up a minimal amount of room. The cot is easy to put up and down. It takes less than 10 seconds, which is so handy when in a rush.
Would you choose this product to win?
Jo: I wouldn't choose this product as it looks quite plain. For the price, it doesn't give much extra compared to cheaper travel cots available. Although a toddler still using a cot would fit in it I don't think it is very spacious for them to move around. I also find it quite big when packed away. It can be hard to store as travel cots aren't used all the time.
Jamielee: I would choose this product over others on the market for its sheer simplicity and quality. It is amazing and my daughter found it very comfortable. It didn’t disrupt her sleep pattern at all. I would choose this product over others as it’s very easily portable with a travel bag it makes it easy to carry from A to B.
Louisa: The SpaceCot is lighter, easier to put up, more compact and has a sleeker design than many of its competitors. It feels like a quality product that is built to last. If you are going on a mini break with a car this is a perfect hassle-free replacement of your usual cot. If you are travelling by public transport it is not quite as useful.
What changes would you make to this product?
Stephanie: The shape when the travel cot is folded down along with the short carry strap make for uncomfortable transporting. It wouldn't fit in anything to take on to a plane which could be a sticking point for some. My baby doesn't like travel cots from hotels so we tend to take hers with us when we travel.
Chloe: I think the only thing I would probably change would be the price. It is on the higher end of the scale and I suppose some people wouldn't want to pay that amount. You may not need to use a travel cot very often. I do think it is worth the investment if you can afford it. It is great quality and the ease of use is what you pay for.
Kirsty: The only thing I would change would be the weight of the product. I understand in order to keep its stability, it would need a specific weight to maintain health and safety regulations. However, should they be able to review the weight ever so slightly, I believe this would be a must-have product for every family.
