Great value, comfortable cot

published

We had borrowed a babybjorn from a friend for a while so our baby was used to that. Didn't want to pay that much when it came to buying our own but stumbled across this one that looked similar. Easy to carry bag and lightweight. Easy to assemble. Comfy and thick mattress which was our main positive. Looks stylish, good size. My baby is a tall 1 year old and she had lots of room.

Purchased in December 2020 at Nanny Annie for $170.00.

Great travel cot

published

Light weight, mattress good quality- comfortable but firm, sturdy frame. Overall better quality than I was expecting for the price. Easy to assemble and disassemble. Importantly, it looks to meet safety criteria.

Questions & Answers

So after reading the choice report on portacots, I'm assuming the mattress is likely of question for safety and suffocation. Judging by one review saying it's "NOT thin and stiff like some of the more expensive ones", I suspect they have made it soft for comfort rather than safety. Also I suspect putting things under it to make it flat will also increase the chance of suffocation.

The Star Kidz Amico mattress is a foam mattress with a thickness of 4.5cm, so it's a soft, comfy and yet sturdy mattress. It also has a board back support included at the bottom of the mattress.

The mattress is equipped with velcro straps to secure it to four bottom corners of the Portacot, making Amico travel cot a safe sleeping solution. We always recommend to position the Portacot on a flat surface and use the provided mattress provided for safety reasons.

So does the mattress meet AS/NZS 2195:2010. Specifically the 2010 version, not the 1999 version.

It seems it does. Do you have any comments on the choice report which showed a lot of concerns with nearly all these portacots? This has raised concerns for me. Happy to do that via email if you prefer.

Details

Features:

  • The Star Kidz Amico Portacot is suitable for babies and children from ages 0 through to 3, and has a maximum load weight of 13kgs - so you can use it until whichever comes first.
  • Safety is paramount with this travel cot, as it meets Australian/New Zealand Safety Standard AS/NZS 2195: 2010 - this updated standard meets the requirements of the 1999 standard with the extra voluntary 2010 standard of having breathable fabrics in the cot.
  • The portacot has mesh sides, making it fully ventilated so your baby can breathe.
  • It has a zip open side so you can easily put your child to bed and let them out without straining your back.
  • Included with the cot is a large padded mattress base and a fitted cotton sheet - a mattress and a sheet made to fit the cot is not only easier to set up and carry around, but poses less of a suffocation risk than parts not specially designed for the cot. This model has tabs that secure the mattress in place underneath the base, giving it an added layer of safety.
  • The cot is made from OEKO-textiles and are free from harmful substances, so you can be rest assured that your child is having a safe, hygienic sleep.
  • In its carry bag, the portacot weighs just under 5.2kg, making it simple to transport around.

Points of praise:

  • Most reviewers found that the portacot was lightweight and the perfect size for travelling and storing away.
  • They also appreciated how easy it was to set up.
  • The firm, sturdy frame was also praised, with reviewers stating that the cot was quite durable.
