A weekend or travel bed is a good investment

As a parent, you may have thought that it's just easier to stay home from the family birthday, a dinner with friends or the beach on a hot summer's day, so that the kids can be put to bed on time and you don't get pushed or ruin their sleep rhythm. So this is where a weekend bed is brilliant because it's super handy to take on trips.

A weekend bed:

  • Easy to transport. Some weekend beds even come with a travel bag
  • Easy to fold and unfold
  • It resembles the child's own bed and gives both parents and child peace of mind

There are also travel cots or so-called UV tents that protect against the sun's rays. Here, the travel cot/tent can be ideal for the beach trip or if the child needs to nap in the garden on a hot summer day. Most UV tents also come with a sail or canopy and mosquito nets to protect your child from the sun's rays and insects. See the different models of travel cots/UV tents above.
