Camping with an 19 month old; regular air bed or ready bed?

We're going to WOMAD with my DSD and DS DSD is a hardened festivalite so no worries there but DS has only been once before when 6 months and slept with me, as co-sleeping ended a year ago when he stopped sleeping I'm trying to work out what to do.

He hates travel cots but isn't in a bed yet so think he may fall off a regular airbed but ready beds say from age 2, what to do?

Thank you

Does the ready bed have 'sides' that would stop ds falling out? I remember when my dd was about the same age and we would always find her in the morning down the side of the airbed, she always rolled off sometime in the night!
I would definately say a ready bed.

It does yes, and I was thinking just the same. It was the recommended age of two that had me a bit jumpy, silly I'm sure.

My DS has one of these which is great. No chance of rolling off, it pumps up really fast, and seems snuggly

That looks great CMOT.

I must say the one thing I like about the raady beds is the sleeping bag is attached.

DS1 at nearly 4 still managed to end up on the floor in his sleeping bag.

Is your DS a sqiurmer emskaboo?

My Sister has one of these but they are a bit pricey to buy when he's 19 months, unless someone can lend you one.

Just check the link I gave and it's the wrong cot. This is the one my sister has. Can use it up to 4 years.

This is a lot cheaper

Hi all, and thank you. Sorry for not responding, have been to the 9th circle of hell, oh sorry, centre of town to buy supplies! Due to leaving everything to the last minute have had to spend a fortune at the normal shops, arghhh! Went with the ready bed option, as limited options in town and thought the travel cot was lovely but prob too enclosed for my DS. Will let you know how it goes. Thanks
