Travel cots can be invaluable when you're away from home and want somewhere cosy for your baby to sleep. 

However, real differences exist between the best and the worst. 

A good travel cot will be easy to assemble and pack away, will provide good value for money and, of course, be super comfortable for your little one. A bad one will simply be more trouble than it's worth.
