How do i choose a travel cot?

The size should be a selection criterion for your crib. It should be small enough to carry and not too heavy when it comes to weight. Think of one that can easily fit in the trunk of your car or in the cabin as carry-on baggage, that is, if you are traveling with your child. Travel cribs are portable and safe places for babies and toddlers to sleep when they are away from home.

They are lightweight, have foldable sides and fold into a portable format with a carrying handle, making them ideal for holidays, breaks and overnight stays. Suitable Age: The right age really varies for travel cots. Most can be used from birth (we specify the manufacturer's instructions), but travel cots that have a built-in bassinet offer a more cozy and elevated sleep environment for newborns. Some even have folding sides to allow them to be used as a bedside crib.

Some cribs can only be used for a few months, while others are suitable for up to about 3.5 years. Our list covers travel cot prices ranging from £30 to £200, making it quite a wide range. For items at all prices, we expect a safe, comfortable and stable sleeping environment. The focus on airflow is one of the main attractions of Nuna Sena Aire.

In addition to the 360 degree mesh-lined airflow in the crib and bassinet, the mesh mattress also has two levels of airflow through layers of ventilated padding. This will ensure that the baby has enough fresh air circulating and that there is good visibility for parents as well. If you are looking for a travel cot that does double or even triple function, this could be the product for you. But when it comes to travel, having your own portable crib means you don't have to worry about whether Airbnb has everything you need or if the hotel's website is up to date, and it also gives the baby a familiar place to sleep, eliminating one more reason to take care of themselves while you're away.

The built-in mattress is 2.5 cm deep, which puts it on par with most travel cot mattresses, but it may not be up to the standards of the Bugaboo Stardust. The big difference between the two is that this small number is more suitable for long-distance travel, weighing only 3.2 kilograms and an ultra-compact design that is formulated to fit in a suitcase, a luggage locker or even the storage space of your stroller. If you are trapped by space at home, regularly divide time between two places, want a safe place to keep them cornered while you go out for a second (see above), or you like to have a spare one for your friends' babies when they come for coffee (the friend, that is, not the baby), a travel cot is a sensible solution. Welcome to the SENA Aire, a carefully designed travel cot from the premium brand of baby goods Nuna that can be set up not only quickly, but with just one hand.

The thing about parenting is that you always have your hands full, and when it comes to traveling with children, that doubles. Designed for use at home or in the garden, on the beach or for trips somewhere sunnier, the Koo-Di Sun and Sleep travel carrycot looks like a versatile option to keep the smallest member of your group happy, cool and out of the sun. Micralite Sleep %26 Go is a multifunctional travel cot option that can be used as a crib for newborns (although the slanted design means it doesn't fit the head of the bed), toddler's crib and playpen. However, there is value to be found, since you can also use this travel cot at home with its multiple uses.
