"Difficult to get a sleeping child into…"
I wish I'd thought about the practicalities of this cot before I bought it. When we used it, I was still feeding my daughter to sleep. Because of the shape and small size of the opening (and we had the larger version!), I could hardly get her in without waking her. I resorted to feeding her to sleep inside the tent, which was really uncomfortable. The mattress + pad combination made loud whooshy noises whenever she shifted in her sleep, and it was really thin.
Even though the larger version is supposed to fit a child until they're 4 years old, I gave up on this at 9 months.Read moreLess
"Zips woke baby up…"
Although light and a great idea in theory it was a fiasco - everytime we opened/closed the zips our son woke up and so he ended up having to sleep with us. Also the mattress was a bit thin. We tested it on my niece aged two but she said the mattress was too hard and felt trapped. A waste.Read moreLess

"Used one of these last summer when camping - loved…"
Used one of these last summer when camping - loved it and more importantly, so did my daughter. We bought it because of its multifunctionality - used it on the beach in the daytime as a UV shelter and then just added the mattress at nighttime. We added a bit more air to the mattress because we were on such hard ground - she was the only one of us to to get nibbled by mozzies becuase of the built in nets.
Bit tricky to get the hang of the folding up the first time we collapsed it but since then, no problems at all. It is also light enough to take anywhere so I think we will certainly get our moneys worth from it.Read moreLess
