Travelling with a baby or toddler is difficult enough on parents, so make it easier for yourself and your family by investing in a high-quality travel cot. Rather than trust that hotel rooms or relatives will have baby cots, pack your own travel cot; not only will you be assured there is a safe place for your infant to sleep, but a personal cot from home may comfort the child in an unfamiliar place.
Besides choosing the colour of the travel cot, you can also decide if you want extra features. For example, some cots come with clips that allow you to fasten the baby bed at a higher level for newborns and younger babies. Other cots come with mobiles and other toys to enchant the sleepy child, a changing station, or a zipped play entrance. These travel cots also often double as play pens, so your child has a safe area to sleep as well as play.
