Best Travel Cots

We put the UK’s best travel cots through their paces and, after weeks of exhaustive testing (and snoozing), have narrowed them down to five top picks. Here we name our top five travel cots of 2018.

Best Travel Cot 2018

Joie Commuter Change

The Commuter Change has everything you could want when travelling with a newborn. It comes with a full-size bassinet as standard, and a very handy portable changing table that clips on top of the travel cot. Assembly couldn't be easier, the main body of the cot comes in one piece, you simply lift the arms of the cot up and push the base down. We loved the generous size of the Joie Commuter, and the wheels on the base made it easy to move once set up. With its host of extra features and 15kg weight limit, the Joie commuter is a great piece of kit with a long life span and that's why we've awarded it Mumsnet Best Travel Cot 2018.

Best Compact Travel Cot 2018

Littlelife Arc 2

Littlelife’s lightweight travel cot is predominantly aimed at campers, but we think anyone can take advantage of this handy little 2.5 kg cot. Designed like a tent, with two crossed poles, the Arc2 folds down into a backpack, which is light and easy to carry. A mesh covering, means babies can easily look out on their surroundings and a zip down side, make it a great option for an outdoor play pen.

Best Luxury Travel Cot 2018

BabyBjorn Travel Cot Light

If you know you’re going to use your travel cot a lot, and you’re willing to splash out, the BabyBjorn Travel Cot light is a worthy investment. Lightweight and extremely well built, this cot comes in a handy suitcase that is easy to carry. We loved the easy to clean zip off fabric cover and the soft mattress inside. Out of all the travel cots we tested, this one was the easiest to assemble, making it our pick for best luxury travel cot.

Best Midrange Travel Cot 2018

Phil & Teds Traveller

Weighing in at only 2.8kg, this is one of the lightest travel cots we tested. We loved the generous size of the Traveller, and the inflatable mattress, which although thin, seemed pretty comfortable to our mini tester. It also fits into a handy bag which can be slung over the shoulder. Assembling this travel cot does take a little practice, but once you’ve mastered that, this spacious and well-designed cot bed will become a firm favourite.

Baby Dan Travel Cot

This sturdy and spacious travel cot has four fold-out walls and can double as a large playpen. Though a little heavier than some of the more expensive options, the two wheels on the cot base make the Baby Dan easy to move around once set up. The cot is also very simple to assemble and comes with a handy travel bag for easy transportation.
