Travelling with a baby seems to require a lot of equipment, and the most important thing (if you want a good nights sleep) seems to be a travel cot.
The Graco travel cot is woefully overlooked in product testings, but the price was low enough for me to gamble on purchasing it.

To errect the travel cot, the sides merely need to be pulled up and snapped into place. My cot seemed to pull itself up the moment I removed it from the box. Once the base is pushed down and locked, the mattress is pushed down, and secured with velcro straps. I found it tricky to get the straps through the holes to attach them to the underside of the bed.

The mattress seems comfortable enough for baby, but I did cover it with a sheet.

This travel cot is actually more spacious than my actual wooden cot, and is very wide. It is suitable for use as a playpen, and can allow a smaller baby to crawl up and down it with ease.

Putting the cot down requires some practice - the base needs to be pulled right up before the sides will be clicked down. I had to leave it upright for the first week whilst I kept fiddling with it to desemble it. So if you do buy one to go on holiday, practice with it first.

The Graco travel cot comes in more attractive colours than that shown with the review, and looks quite smart. The cot is sturdy when up.
