The big appeal of this travel cot is its height-adjustable mattress feature, which is ideal for anyone who needs to avoid bending low to the ground to lift their baby in and out. Three real mums tested this travel cot in the April 2015 issue of M&B magazine.
It comes with lots of extras, including a changing unit and a rocking seat, both of which can be used on or off the cot. Plus, it has a sound and lights module, which is designed to soothe and entertain your baby.
In addition, it has a full-size bassinet attachment for younger babies, plus integrated wheels, which make it easy to move the cot from room to room once it’s assembled.
Corinne Hills, 37, from Sheffield, is mum to Arthur, 14 months, Wilfred, three, Tobias, five, and Tom, 15, said: ‘The adjustable mattress-height feature is handy. But the extras don’t particularly add value to what is essentially a decent travel cot – it’s just more stuff to carry!’
Roz Walker, 32, from Glasgow, is mum to Aaron, seven months, said: ‘This is easy to move around once built, thanks to the wheels, and it’s very stylish. It’s a good size, plus standard cot bedding fits, but I found it difficult to assemble by myself.’
Naomi Johnson, 32, from Peterborough, is mum to Logan, 10 weeks, and Elizabeth, 11, said: ‘This has loads of extra functions and gadgets. The night light and sound unit really helped my son drift off. But this was heavy and tricky to fit in our car.’
