MFM tester Nina: "Take battery operated light bulbs that you can hang in various places in the tent!" Our Arc 2 is in use regularly, even when we’re at home. We use it in the garden or on the beach as a shaded play tent, and occasionally as Rosie’s bed when guests are staying in her bedroom. For young babies under one year old, avoid placing all duvets, soft toys, and pillows inside the cot. When deciding where to put your travel cot, don’t put it near to a radiator, draughty window, or blinds with cords that might pose a strangulation risk.

Yes - all travel cots on sale must adhere to British safety standard BS EN 716. The Lullaby Trust advises that parents use a firm, flat, waterproof mattress that is in good condition. In addition, a baby’s sleeping space should be kept clear, with no loose bedding. As with a normal cot, babies should be placed in the ‘feet-to-foot’ position so they can’t wriggle down under any blankets. Portable beds can be expensive and can take up unnecessary space in an otherwise baby-filled home, so if you think you'll only get use out of one for two weeks of the year, then you could probably do without. Mesh window: a good travel cot should have at least one mesh window so that you can always see the baby. When I first read about the Arc 2 I was a little concerned about the tent concept. I couldn’t quite imagine how this would be sturdy and safe enough for a young child. But in fact, the cot is remarkably robust, thanks to the clever double crossing pole design. And the Arc 2 comes with numerous safety features:Overall verdict: The Aire doubles up as a playpen, which is always handy, but our tester did find it quite bulky - something that you’d need to think about if you plan to regularly move it around. ‘The only downside is how big it is but if space isn’t a problem in the car, then this can’t be faulted,’ she adds. At 10kg, this isn’t a light travel cot but the design is more focused on the baby’s comfort than on portability. As the most expensive travel cot in our lineup, this will appeal to anyone willing to pay extra for the plushest travel cot mattress we've ever seen.

Washable covers: it is inevitable that the cot will need washing from time to time, if the cover is easily cleaned and removable this is great. Even if the mattress feels thin, don't be tempted to place folded blankets underneath your child. Go for a baby sleeping bag or a well-fitted swaddle instead. The Little Life Arc 2 doesn’t look like your standard travel cot but that’s part of the beauty of its design.The toddler age is the most difficult stage, and if you have a child who has difficulty sleeping, it can be useful to have the possibility to open the panel and lie down next to him. Based on that price, when we compare it to the other options available, we’ve given it a price score of 9.9 out of 10. Travel cots category average cost We also wanted to see which products might cause difficulty for people with mobility issues and which were the easiest to assemble and take down Next up is the material. Take a look at what Littlelife Arc 2 Travel Cot is made from. Often you can spot the quality of the product based on the materials used to make it, with some obvious signs of a cheaper product with certain types of material. With some toys this will be more important than others. So you’ll already have a good idea of whether the material is actually a big deal or not when buying Travel cots.

What we thought: This travel cot isn't especially portable as it's large and robust - but that does allow your baby lots of space to move around, plus it doubles as a playpen. It comes with a newborn insert, a changing mat, a nightlight with music and vibrating features, and a toy bar so there’s lots to keep your little one entertained and to (hopefully) help send them off to sleep. The sliding panel can be lifted and lowered with one hand, and the 11 height adjustment options mean you can fit this travel cot to almost any height/style of bed frame or sofa bed. Some brands are better known for delivering great quality, and as you’re on our Littlelife Arc 2 Travel Cot review you’re probably already well aware of how good quality Littlelife Travel cots are. Having twins, for me the most important thing that determined the choice was the lightness and ease of transport (because obviously we have two).

Now they are just over 4 and we usually find accommodation that offers at least a sofa bed as option for them. The poles are then inserted into eyelets to give the cot its dome-like shape. You will need apply some pressure to do this, but excessive force shouldn’t be used as you would risk damaging the cot. What we thought: The Red Kite Sleep Tight Travel Cot is a classic, stylish design with supporting legs that are easy to assemble. Its mesh sides are fully padded to avoid injury but also allow babies to see out easily. Using it as a play tent at home also helps them getting to know and love the new cot. Don’t overdo it though so your baby doesn’t primarily associate it with play and not sleep time. Depending on the situation or your child’s preferences you can turn the Arc 2 from an open cot into a shady tent or even a playpen. Thanks to the mesh the tent is bright and airy, even when the openings are closed.

Of course, one downside to buying online is that you aren’t able to see the product in-person. But there are many ways to help you determine a product’s quality without seeing it. The first factor that you can look at is the brand. Often we can get a really good understanding of the quality of toys and other gadgets by just looking at the brand. There are some brands that are really well known for great quality, whilst others might be better known for value.(and some are known to be poor in both areas). MFM tester Loira: "Pegs! So you can hang stuff up to dry out. A washing line is great if you have space."The main part of the cot is assembled like a tent with two colour-coded poles – one silver and one green – that correspond with the coloured webbing. The poles come folded into sections but, once put together, are fairly lengthy which means that you'll definitely need some room in the living room or garden for assembly. While the handy carry bag and mattress are included in the price, we think you’d need to be really into travelling to get good use out of the Arc 2. It took a few minutes for our tester, Ruth, to work out what was what, but once everything was laid out in front of her it was easy to make sense of it all – after sussing out all the parts, it took her around five minutes to assemble. We commissioned Ruth Lumley to write about and test a variety of toddler and baby travel cots. Ruth is a journalist who has used a number of baby beds with her three young children – from the newborn stage right through to toddlerhood and while holidaying abroad and visiting relatives in the UK. So the first step is to look at the price of Littlelife Arc 2 Travel Cot. Here we run a search to find the price of products that we review. If it’s a product offered by lots of retailers then we get you the best price. If it’s only offered by one retailer then we find you the latest price.
