What comes after travel cot?

My DD is two and the travel cot is too small for her as she is tall (90cm). What would you recommend? An inflatable bed (we saw one that was just over a metre so it won't last long), a sleeping bed (hotels abroad are tiled so it might be a bit hard)? Or would you trust the hotel to provide a decent bed? She still sleeps in a wooden cot at home so not used to a proper bed yet. Thanks for suggestions!

My DS has a readybed which will last him until he's 4. I will use it as long as he's happy in it. It's only £30 so if it lasts him for 2 years, I don't think that's too bad.

What about a z bed?

She'll be fine in a bed with guard or put a blanket on the floor to stop her rolling onto tiles. Most 3rd beds are very low or pull out from a sofa.

Isn't z bed a bit bulky? I have something like that but it folds on largish square, we have a small car. Thanks Spice, we are looking at readybeds but on argos they also sell inflatable sleeping bags, unfortunately they are from 3 years old

We DIY it with chairs and cushions around a proper bed. DS1 has only fallen out once, and he didn't even notice!

Thanks for all suggestions, my DP is very paranoid about falls and my DD is a 'baby elephant', quite strong and heavy - you wouldn't believe what she manages to knock off or carry around when awake. Will give your suggestions a thought!
