Having recently returned from a holiday during which my 11 month old baby continued sleeping all through the night every single night, I am a firm believer in the value of a decent travel cot. And this one - the Red Kite Sleep Tight Travel Cot is down in price from £44.99 to £27.95 right now. That price includes the mattress AND it comes with a free carry bag.
I know summer holiday season is already over for lots of you (weep) but at this price it's worth investing in this travel cot for next summer, or even as a handy option for sleepovers at the grandparents' - or anyone else who will have your tot!
I'm convinced that comfort at bedtime and the right bedding plays a big part in how well babies sleep. My little lady loves to be snug as a bug in a rug and she also loves lots of space to roll around in her sleep, especially since she started crawling. I'm sure having a cosy, comfy travel cot on holiday helped ensure that she kept her brilliant sleeping habits up, even in an unfamiliar holiday house.
This travel cot is available in various colours too, and mainland UK delivery will be free if you spend £50 or more, otherwise it's £5.95.
(Ooh OUCH... but I've just noticed that delivery is a rather nasty £19.95 to the Scottish islands and Highlands, and £24.95 to Northern Ireland, regardless of the value of your order. I'd ring 'em up and give 'em an earful if you're subject to those crazy delivery prices.)
