BUGABOO STARDUST TRAVEL COT (£225)

If you’re looking for a travel cot that’s sturdy, comfortable and pops up in a flash (really!) then look no further. Suitable from newborn with the included carrycot insert, it takes ONE SECOND to unfold and three seconds to fold away –  without having to remove the mattress! The all round air-mesh means its a thumbs up for excellent ventilation and it stows away neatly without taking up space. It’s also nice and light so it’s easy to take on your international trips with you. Motherhood Edit Editor, Beth, owns this travel cot and loves it – she says they carried it on to the Eurostar and around Amsterdam with no complaints!
