Comfy for my bebe
Borrowed a friends baby bjorne portacot for a camping trip last month and my little one had a great sleep in it, the quality is great, easy to use and comfy mattress. Ended up buying one for an upcoming holiday. I had previously bought a Target one after some quick online research which led me to believe they were similar enough. Not really similar IMO. The price is high- would go second hand if in good cond.

I have 4 kids under 6 and two Baby Bjorn portacots, we travel and camp a lot, they are lightweight, easy to use, safe, durable and great quality. Highly recommend, a must have item if you travel.

The best travel cot on the market by far
The last thing you want or need is a big flimsy portacot to set up at your destination when stress levels are already high. I don’t want to waste my precious holiday time setting up a big clunky travel cot. The babybjorn travel cot is a holiday miracle. So simple to set up I could do it one handed while dealing with a screaming tired toddler with the other. It is very compact and takes up minimal space and would be perfect for a small cabin or even in a tent. Mattress is very comfortable, the mesh sides are lovely and soft and my 2.5 year old h... Read moreas no chance of getting out once put to bed!!! (Time for a mum wine) And once your holiday is over it packs up just as quick as you set it up into a small case (so saving precious boot space as well) Perfect! It’s stressful enough travelling with young children so don’t let those big awful portacots add to your blood pressure woes and invest in a babybjorn travel cot. The only negative is it is so expensive to buy, but in saying that it seems to hold its resale value reasonably well ($200-300 on marketplace). Bite the bullet and buy one, you can thank all the 5star reviews later.
Can't live without it
We do lots of travelling, after reading the reviews for this travel cot, I bit the bullet and got it. It's light, compact and most importantly it's comfortable. I've used it with 2 kids now and both have slept incredibly in it compared to others.

Best travel cot!!
After having used multiple portacots over the years with my 3 children, this one is hands down the absolute best!! Easy to assemble and fold down, easy to clean and super light and compact! Mattress is perfect! I actually wish I found out about this one with my first child onwards... not my 3rd! But better late than never!!

The very best - worth the expense
I absolutely LOVE this travel cot. I was reluctant at first to purchase it due to the price but after receiving positive feedback from friends and reading all the great reviews online I decided to go ahead with it. I certainly am glad I did. This has been the best portacot we have used. It’s so light weight and easy to transport. We’ve taken it on international flights, long road trips and even just short stays at the grandparents house. It’s been absolutely perfect in all occasions. It’s so easy to assemble - it’s up in minutes which is so imp... Read moreortant when you’ve been travelling and have an exhausted baby or toddler to put to bed. It is quick and easy to pack away. It’s sturdy and made of high quality materials. It’s not bulky and can fit into small spaces - we’ve certainly squeezed it into some tight spots in small hotel rooms. The mattress is comfy and soft, and most importantly my baby sleeps so easily in this portacot. I’m so glad we purchased this portacot - it’s the best.

It is really useful and we r very happy with this.The main advantage is it’s easy to carry and light weight,my baby girl sleeping with this comfortably and very glad to see that.
So glad I purchased this portacot, I did A LOT of research and this was by far the best. It is easy to assemble and pack up and put away. The mattress is comfy but just right in line with the standards, my baby girl sleeps perfect in it each time. A cot fitted sheet fits the mattress you just got to tuck it under which you can with no hassle and even a blanket tucks under. The price through Bubs and Grubs is a bonus too. So happy with my purchase and I would recommend this portacot to any mum and dad.

Must have for travel
So easy to set up and pack up, light weight, aesthetically pleasing and my baby slept through the night every night of our 3 week holiday in it. Highly recommended for a travel cot!

The best travel cot we've tried.
Packing and unpacking a travel cot can be a total pain, up there with fiddly child seats, complicated high chairs etc.. The Baby Bjorn travel cot is the easiest travel cot we have used - easy to set up, easy to take down, and easy to fit into its travel bag. It's light, sturdy, and our kids have never had any trouble falling asleep in it, even at the age of 3 when we still use it on holidays. This cot is in my opinion the very best travel cot around, and I would recommend it highly.

The BEST travel cot
I have erected at least 20 different travel cots in my time as a parent. This cot is high quality and so easy to assemble and disassemble. We took it travelling around Europe and it was a god-send! I cannot recommend it enough!
Purchased in at David Jones Retail Stores for $499.
Our best investment
It is expensive but this is one of our best investment. We bought a near new second hand one for a bit cheaper than the full price. The cot is easy to assemble, light weight but is stable. We have used it for 12 trips since our baby was 4 month old. He is 2 year old now and always had good sleep in it. He attempted to climb out but never succeed (he is about 87cm now).

The mattress is actually soft like a mattress!
The mattress is actually soft like a mattress, unlike every other portable cot that feels like cardboard! And you can even replace the mattress. We had a urine leak problem, and I discovered that the whole thing can be easily taken apart and cleaned, and the mattress can even be removed and you could replace it (which is probably against the recommendations, but it's just eggshell foam). Also, it's super easy to take down and put up again - no more searching for instructions on YouTube every time you need to pack up a portable cot! We bought an older model serving hand recently, and it looks like it will last well with use, with solid construction.
This has been a sensational thing to have for the first 12 months and counting. We've used it in hotels, friends houses, and in a tent. It folds up and down in seconds. Fits easily into the bag without needing to take sheets off. It fits onto the floor of the car between the front seat and the baby seat.
Questions & Answers
Lent cot to a friend. Leg has fallen off. Springs, etc have come away. Is there an instruction manual or similar to show me how to reassemble (if possible)?
Does this cot have a light blockout that fits its unique size or is there one you can recommend that fits ?
Hi, is there a way to boost the mattress or add another that fits? I’m only 5foot and really struggling to place my baby in and pick him up easily.
