By Jessie Huth / HuffPost UK

Whether you’ve just about cracked your baby’s bedtime routine, or have a nocturnal nipper, the prospect of travelling away from home can strike dread into any parent’s heart.

If you – or they – are going to get any sleep, you’ll need a travel cot. But which one should you get? We’ve done the heavy lifting, so you can rest easy.

Traveller Cot, Phil and Ted's, Amazon, £129

Traveller Cot, Phil and Ted’s, Amazon, £129

An excellent, extremely lightweight option (2.8kg) the Phil and Ted’s is small and compact – arguably a tiny bit too small inside for growing limbs. Its mesh sides mean it’s breathable and can double up as a play-pen. There are additional options like a bassinet or a shade cover for use outside. Easy to assemble, with no fuss, it packs down into a small bag so it can be easily carried on holiday.

Angel Baby Box, Angel Baby Box, £206

This might only last for six months, but it wins points on cute factor and for its lovely, non- toxic, natural materials. Your tot will feel snug and safe and you can feel reassured by its enhanced safety features. It claims to be a sleeping pod, a play mat and a dressing mat – you can fold the sides down flat. An ergonomic take on the Finnish baby box tradition?

Chicco Zip n Go Travel Cot, Argos, £89.99

A lovely, Italian convertible travel cot, this can be used as a crib for the first six months –and includes a fixed and rocking mode – before turning into a full sized travel cot. You literally zip and unzip it like a suitcase. It has one of the thickest mattresses on the market, assembles easily in ten seconds and is a portable 7.3kg. Suitable up to 24 months.

Sleep and Go Travel Cot, Micralite, £175

This is everything to all people (up to age 36 months, that is): a bassinet, a cot and a playpen 3-in-1. It’s light at only 7kg and the crib attachment saves your back from bending too low in the early months. A good and stylish all-rounder.

Joie Excursion Travel Cot, Uber Kids, £144

Joie Excursion Travel Cot, Uber Kids, £144

You certainly get your money’s worth here. It’s not light (16.49kg) but considering it’s basically a travel nursery, we can forgive them that one. It comes with a full-sized bassinet, plus a changing table and a bouncer that clip on and off. It even has a sound and light attachment, which plays classical lullabies and nature sounds. Loads of little extras and details make this a joy, as the name suggests.
