In a Nutshell
Mothercare’s new lightweight travel cot (only 5.3kg) has a sleek and modern design that folds easily into a bag you can carry on your shoulder – perfect if you are travelling by train or need it to fit into the boot of the car.
It has mesh panels on the sides and it comes with a thermally insulated mattress which self-inflates for comfort (no need for parents to be blowing up mattresses come bedtime). It’s also narrower than a lot of its rivals so ideal if you know space will be tight.
The Sleep Walker is not only easy to put up, it has colour indicators which go green when you’ve got it in the correct position, thus eliminating any worries over whether you have successfully assembled it. It also has wheels that make it easy to move it into position and a brake to secure it.
The fact that it folds into a neat shoulder bag means it’s great for parents on the go. It also means it can be stored under beds or on narrow shelves, making it great for keeping at grandma’s house.
Only the side panels are made from mesh, so from some angles you won’t be able to see your child sleeping Also, there are no side pockets or additional storage.
