Hauck Travel Cot £26.95 @ Tesco Direct
Prices seem to depend on what colour you're buying, this is a charcoal one (which is exclusive to Tesco by the way) but if you wanted to buy a 'silver grey' one then it would cost you £59.99.
Having had three children I can safely say that there are only a few things that I would put on a 'must have' baby/toddler items list; a travel cot is one of them.
Even if you don't intend to go away on family holidays or stay away from home with your baby (which you might not), it's entirely likely that your baby will stay away from home without you.
My mum was most responsive to babysitting requests as long as the babies stayed at HER house and, I have to say, I was most responsive to that too *grin*
Travel cots can be a little bit pricey and it’s easy to get sucked into the little extra bits and pieces that manufacturers will have you believe are essential; but you don’t NEED the hanging toys, the bit that plays 10 of the most popular nursery rhymes or flashing lights; honestly, you don’t.
This Hauck travel cot is nice and simple, does what it needs to do and only has what it needs to have, and at this price you could even get two and keep one at the grandparents house full time.
It's suitable from birth until 14kgs, all folds down and comes in its own carry bag, the sides are mesh so you can see through to the inside and your baby can see through to the outside.
You can collect it in-store for free from your nearest Tesco or pay £4.95 for home delivery.
