This travel cot is ideal for outdoors and will come in very handy this summer

Melissa Carton

Whether it’s camping or heading to the beach once the summer comes the Irish love to get outdoors.

A lot of this is of course because we never know how long the good weather will last, so we like to make the most of it.

When you have a baby or toddler venturing out can be a challenge and can sometimes feel like you need eyes in the back of your head.

Luckily though there is a product that can help keep them contained when you want to enjoy the great outdoors without worrying about them getting into mischief.

Award-winning company BabyHub have this fantastic travel cot, perfect for outdoor use, available from their online store.

The cot which is durable and breathable even comes with extra netting to protect your child from bug bites. There is also a cover which can be added to shield small children from the sun.

Adaptable, the cot works for both infants and toddlers and can even be transformed into a tee-pee style tent.

After attending the Body & Soul a couple of years ago I toyed with the idea of bringing the kids but just didn’t know how I would get my toddler down to sleep at night in a tent.

After discovering the SleepSpace travel cot it’s beginning to seem a lot more doable and something I would consider buying for general camping trips and hitting the beach on sunny days.

With most of us taking staycations this year something like this will come in very handy even if you’re booking an Airbnb as many of them don’t come with travel cots.

Priced at £99 (€114) the SleepSpace comes in four colours and you can pick one up for yourself here.
