BabyBjorn Travel Cot Light Review

BabyBjorn Travel Cot Light Review

Last weekend we had a mini road trip to meet friends and it was such a fun weekend and the perfect time to test out our new BabyBjorn Travel Cot Light! (affiliate link)

The BabyBjorn Travel Cot Light

We hired a 4 bedroom house for the weekend at Rafferty’s Resort in Lake Macquarie with 2 other couples and their kids – it was a full house so we needed to plan for where the kids were going to sleep.

Last time we went away, Mini slept in his travel co-sleeper but at 13 month’s old, he’s far too big for this now.

We’re such big fans of the BabyBjorn range, using our BabyBjorn highchair daily and and BabyBjorn One Carrier every week. We packed both of those too!

We opted for the travel cot in Black to match our other items and I was so excited when it arrived.

How to set up

It came in it’s own storage bag with handles so can be transported easily. It’s a very neat shape when packed away so easily fit into our car to travel. When not in use, it stands neatly in the side of my son’s wardrobe.

When we arrived at the holiday house, I put the travel cot up – it took me no longer than 60 seconds!

I took the folded cot out of the bag first, lay it on the floor and clicked the 4 legs into place.

I took the mattress out of the bag next, put on a clean fitted sheet, popped it into the travel cot and lay it flat.

Ta-da! That was literally all it took to set up. No buttons, hooks, extra pieces or loose parts. Very easy and quick.

Mini still sleeps in a sleeping bag but otherwise any standard cot duvet would fit fine.

The mattress is very soft and cushioned and he looked so snug and comfy in there. I also love that the sides are mesh. He can see us and we can see him when we’re lying in bed. By that, I mean I don’t need to get out of bed to check on him – bonus!

Why we love it

It’s a perfect cot for Mini and for my 3 year old daughter too – it’s suitable from 0-3 year’s old. Miss had her own single bed at home but there’s so much room in this cot.

We took so much stuff with us for the weekend – packing for 2 kids takes ages! Along with the changing bag, we had 3 small suitcases, 1 bag of toys, a scooter and helmet and about 4 bags of food and drinks. At least the travel cot was lightweight (only weighs 6kgs) and compact!

We love the BabyBjorn Travel Cot Light. I recommend it for parents who travel a lot with their babies or have others stay over. It’s the perfect lightweight cot to travel with or store away and bring out when someone with kids comes to stay.

    Love how portable this looks and so stylish than other porta-cots. And would fit in our smallish boot when we have to travel! Definitely on my wish-list.

    This looks fab, I wish we had of had something so compact & lightweight for when Archie was smaller. Ours was so heavy & bulky x
