This cot bed offers an unusual combination of robust, long lasting and truly portable. Three real mums tested this travel cot in the April 2015 issue of M&B magazine.

A really light and compact option, the sides of this travel cot can be completely zipped away.

This allows easier access than standard travel cots, but also transforms the cot into a fun daytime play space. With gently sloping mesh sides, which let you see your baby easily, this is suitable from birth to three years.

The cot base, onto which an inflatable mattress fits, is slightly raised off the ground. The carry bag fits into very small spaces, including the overhead locker on a plane journey, making this a good choice for frequent fliers.

Corinne Hills, 37, from Sheffield, is mum to Arthur, 14 months, Wilfred, three, Tobias, five, and Tom, 15, said: ‘Perfect if you need something light and small enough to pop in a large suitcase. But I found this cot complicated and time-consuming to assemble.’

Roz Walker, 32, from Glasgow, is mum to Aaron, seven months, said: ‘The inflatable mattress is excellent, but securing it to the base is quite fiddly. This is so lightweight and really compact, but it took us a while to set up.’

Naomi Johnson, 32, from Peterborough, is mum to Logan, 10 weeks, and Elizabeth, 11, said: ‘I love that the sides can be removed. It’s great for playtime and for co-sleeping families. It’s also easy to use, lightweight and compact, but I’d prefer a thicker mattress.
