Why does Tizzie love the BabyBjorn Travel Cot?
I love the BABYBJÖRN travel cot!!!
There are a couple of things I am not so keen on about it but the good outweighs the slightly bad points. If I was going to buy a porta cot this is the one I would buy even with its price tag.
It retails for $395.95 which sounds outrageous but out of all the cots I have tested I find this one is the only one that my children don’t sweat in. When I look at the amount of time I use one with the travelling we do, I think the $395.95 isn’t that bad I would pay much more for a pram and I don’t leave my babies in a pram for 12 hours over night. But my price is $330 for just the cot!
Things I love about the BABYBJÖRN and what I don’t like about others.
It has a cotton mattress which my children don’t sweat on. With my current porta cot which was the best of a bad lot my base is actually mouldy. This is because when I use it the base gets wet with sweat and last time I used it was in a hotel the night before we flew back to Australia from London. When we packed the cot up to run for the flight the base was wet byt the time we saw the cot 28 hours later it was in Melbourne we then drove home and the last thing that was on my tired mind was opening the cot to air it. When I next went to use it is was mouldy. So to me the cotton mattress in the Babybjorn alone is worth the price.
The BABYBJÖRN looks much smaller in height but it is only 4 cm lower then the one we have now. It just looks even lower because it in on the floor and doesn’t have the legs holding it up off the floor. It is actually 12 cm longer then our current one but don’t look it and I prefer it longer for my big kids. Darragh at nearly three slept in it fine last night. I like the idea of it base sitting on the floor because if Cillian decided to climb out and fell he would not fall as far as he would from the other one we have.
I have found that the cot mattress protector is also suitable for use with the recommended BabyBjorn Portable cot. The mattress protector is just slightly too big but if you pull the protector firmly around the mattress, tucking under any excess and then cover with a well fitting fitted sheet it holds everything securley in place with maintaining a safe sleeping surface.
A few clients, readers, friends and other stores have asked me why we have the Babybjorn portacot so cheap on our website. The reason is I believe it is every baby’s right to sleep safely all night and if making the price a little less means more babies will sleep safely at night, I and my team are happy.
