We are off on holiday for three weeks to my dad's place in Florida and need something for my 1 yaer old to sleep in. We looked at buying a cot over there, but they are just too expensive adn there is no hire place in Key West where he is. So, I need to take my travel cot, but I think the base is way too hard and uncomfortable for three weeks solid use. Is there anway to make it more comfy?
Thanks for the link. That company does not cover Key West. KW is an island at the very south of the keys and it is about 4-5 hours drive from mainland. SO unless there is a branch on the island, noone will deliver to there.
I already have a sheepskin that he sleeps on, but even with that, I don't think there is enough padding to make it comfy. He is not a great sleeper and I don't want him sleeping less because of being uncomfy.
Is a duvet safe? I thought that anything loose could be pulled over the child and suffocate them?
I know what you meant about the hard bases on the travel cots. We recently spent 6 weeks travelling with one and what I did was use a fitted sheet with the duvet between the sheet and base. The fitted cot sheet prevented DS from being able to pull the duvet on to himself and he slept like a baby.......
I'm sure a duvet will be fine at 1yr old. Like I said I used one for my dd. We had an unfortunate incident involving lots of vomit which put the cot out of use for a few days while I tackled the matress so the travel cot came out for a few days then and a couple of weeks ago we went on holiday and did the same for a week. She is 21 months now.
I don't mean a full single duvet, one that is made for cots or cot beds will do.
Thanks. I called that company about rental and it is actually cheaper for me to buy stuff like highchairs there than rent them! As for the bed, I will take the suggestions about using padding under a sheet.
Mothercare do an ace travel cot matteress. It's padded & has the mesh covering which helps keeps the air flowing. We used it for our 2 week holiday this year & I think even I would have been happy sleeping on it ! AND it's only £20 & fits into suitcase
