Our test was based on the Australian and New Zealand standard AS/NZS 2195:1999 “Folding cots – Safety requirements”. We also tested against the breathability clause in the revised 2010 standard.
We check the folding mechanism, stability, that there are no entrapment hazards, sharp edges or points; that the mattress is firm enough and fits snugly; and that there are breathable zones at the sides and ends of the cot (in case a baby rolls face-first against the side or end).
We won’t recommend a portable cot if it has a major safety failure.
For ease of use, we assessed how easy it is to set up, pack and store the cot and its accessories.

This product is light to carry, and really easy to put up and put down. It literally takes me 30 seconds to put up or put down, which is ideal for travelling when you just want to get your wee one into bed.
Doesn't have a bassinet level which can make it a bit hard to get your baby in and out if they can't sit up yet, particularly if you are short! Safety test says the mattress is too soft. We haven't had any problems with it though. We do have an older model so maybe this is related to the newer models.
Yes, I recommend this product.
