Review: Hauck Dream 'n' Care Travel Cot

Every visit to my parents is a battle of baby vs. dog - neither is willing to accept the universe does not revolve around them. Bracken tries to jump all over the baby, and Marianna tries to yank the dog's fur. Basically, they bring out the worst in each other. Today my dad suggested getting out the travel cot they had from my aunt. The difference is amazing! Marianna and Bracken are separated and peace and quiet reigns (almost) supreme.

Looking up at TV friends...

The cot itself is great - it folds up nice and small, and the extra level on the bottom is great for storing baby paraphernalia (the other side has a zipped compartment for access to it). After the usual amount of faffing to get it together - if you're as clueless as we were, just type in 'travel cot' on YouTube - the structure is pretty sturdy, and the mesh sides are good as it means Marianna can still see me and vice versa.

Bracken.

Manufactured by Hauck, the Dream 'n' Care Travel Cot comes in a range of colours and designs. There's 'animals', 'butterfly', 'bear', and Winnie the Pooh. You can expect to pay £50 and up new, or you might be able to find it going cheap on eBay.
