Travel cots: things to watch out for

Our experts found that some of the travel cots weren’t so suited to regular travel because extra features and weight made them unwieldy to transport.

Others promised to be lightweight, but this came at the expense of the speed of setting them up, or they were limited in size and therefore how long they will last your baby.
