Comparing Travel Cots

Compare our range of portacots with this easy to follow guide.  We get lots of enquiries about which is the 'best'! In reality, which is best depends on what you'll use it for most.  Here's a summary to help you decide which travel cot is best for you.  Watch the videos to see how quick and easy assembly is. 

Our travel cot selection features options designed for use with babies and toddlers up to around 2.5 years, 89cm tall or when they attempt to climb out of the travel cot, whichever is earlier. View toddler travel bed options here.

The Sleep Store Drift Travel Cot

Our Drift Travel Cot has been designed with parents in mind. Quick to assemble and easy to pack down, the Drift takes away some of the stress of holidays with babies! It comes with legs attached, you just need to open and click the legs into place. The mattress has a firm base and lightly cushioned top, just pop it into the travel cot. There are 6 velcro tabs to secure the mattress in place to make it extra safe. The sides are mesh to the ground, which is a requirement of the safety standard to ensure it is fully breathable. The Drift meets the NZ/AU Safety Standard for travel cots.

 

 

 

 

Phil & Ted's Traveller

This video shows the V3 Traveller. The V3 was replaced by the smaller V4 in August 2017. The V4 is similar in almost every way to the V3 except it has a slightly smaller mattress and overall footprint when fully assembled. The V4 was introduced to be more affordble, even more compact and lighter in weight than the V3. The V4 still has full mesh sides, and includes a beautiful 100% cotton fitted sheet. To make the cot so compact and light it trades quick release hinges and a foam mattress for a more involved assembly process and an inflatable mattress. The mattress is still comfortable and meets the standard. Assembly is still straight-forward and relatively quick, but give yourself an extra 5-10 minutes or so to get the Traveller unpacked and assembled compared to the Baby Bjorn or Drift. The Traveller is incredibly light weight (2.5kg without mattress) and an excellent choice for both indoors and outdoors. If you need a travel cot to stow away in your suitcase or overhead locker then the Traveller is a great option.

 

 

 

Baby Bjorn

Weighing just under 6kg, the lightweight construction of the Travel Cot Light makes traveling hassle-free for parents. The crib is easy for any adult to carry around the house, pack into a car, or carry through an airport.
