A few weeks ago I found out I was Koo-di’s Blogger Of The Year. I was shocked and delighted! Koo-di are a company that make really useful baby and toddler products and when I put myself forward to be their blogger ambassador I was sure I wouldn’t be the successful candidate. I’m really excited that working with Koo-di will allow me to do more informative baby and parenting posts on Willow Lane. You can read my interview with Koo-di on their website to find out more about our partnership.
My first task as BOTY was reviewing the Koo-di Pop-Up Bubble Travel Cot. When I took Rose on holiday in February, and for an overnight stay at a B&B over Easter, I would have loved to have had this travel cot on hand. It is super light-weight and compact, folding up flat into a bag. Compared to the travel cot I had borrowed for my trips, the pop-up travel cot is, in my opinion, a far better alternative. It’s no-where near as bulky and heavy to carry as a standard travel cot. Where the pop-up travel cot also excels is that it has a mosquito net and can be fully enclosed around your baby, ideal for trips to hot climates. You could also bring it on to the beach with you so your baby can sleep/play safely and securely.
I set up the pop-up travel cot in the guest room and Rose loved playing in it. It was quick and easy to put up, you could easily do it without instructions – and that’s saying something for me as I am pretty atrocious at any sort of DIY. It comes with a mattress which is about half an inch thick and attaches to the sides of the cot by way of velcro strips. We kept the front mosquito net tucked into the discreet pocket in the bottom right-hand-side of the cot.
Koo-di’s Pop-up Bubble Travel Cot is suitable for babies from 6 – 18 months old, comes in a variety of colours (we have it in aubergine) and retails at £56.99. I’m hoping to get proper use out of it later on in the year when we plan to take Rose on holiday again somewhere sunny. We’ll be able to fit it in our suitcase, something we couldn’t do with the large travel cot we used before.
What are your thoughts on baby travel cots?
