Making a Travel Cot more comfy?

Hi, we're flying to Valencia in a fortnight.

My 2.7 dd will sleep happily in a single bed however, my 16 month old dd will sleep in our travel cot.

She has slept in the travel cot before but not very well - I think its because its so hard and uncomfortable. Does anyone have any tips on how to soften it a bit?

We always put a cot sized low tog duvet in under the bottom sheet to make it more comfy...?

we bought a travel cot mattress which is OK if you are travelling by car (it folds in half) but doesn't go any smaller e.g. if you need to pack in flight luggage. it was from £16.99 - hope this helps

I'd second a duvet or extra layers under the sheet. Are you staying in a hotel? they could probably give you something to put underneath to save you carrying it with you.
