Looking to rent a travel cot? The Phil&Teds Traveller crib weighs a mere 2.6kg and packs down into a yoga-mat sized bag. Fits into most luggage easily.
Suitable from birth to 90cm, no max weight since it’s placed on the ground 🙂 If you are looking to rent a travel cot with a thicker mattress, check out the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib. While it is heavier at 6kg – and larger – it has a foam mattress and is easier to set up.

How does this compare with the Babybjorn Travel Crib?
Why you might prefer the Phil&Teds Travel Cot vs the Babybjorn Travel Cot:
The Phil&Teds travel cot is definitely more compact and should fit in most luggage.
The Babybjorn would need to be checked in unless you have an extra large luggage.
At 2.8kg, the Phil&Teds is half the weight of the Baby Bjorn crib which tips the scale 6kg.
However, compared to normal portable playpens which weigh 10kg and above, both are considered lightweight!
- ZIP ACCESS:
For those with bad backs or who nurse babies to sleep, the zip sides makes transferring much easier.
In addition, during the day your baby can use it as a play tent!
Why you might choose the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib vs the Phil & Teds Travel Crib:
Unashamed to admit – I have lain on the Babybjorn cot mattress and did not want to get up!
It’s a proper 2-inch thick foam mattress compared to the air-filled self-inflatable mat for the Phil & Teds. However, you may add a blanket beneath the mat.
Nevertheless, the Phil&Teds has many parent fans whose babies slept 12 hours on vacation!
- SET UP:
The Babybjorn literally sets up in seconds – just unfold and go – while the Phil&Teds is more like a lego set.
Most parents can set the Phil&Teds up in under 5 minutes, so it’s really what you prioritise!
