Camping is one of the best family activities, so look into kids travel bed options to suit everyone. Bring the little ones, no matter how small, and find beds to suit them. Check out the camping beds at the Camping Store.
Mum and Dad splurge for a comfy travel bed, why shouldn’t the kids get one? In fact, there are even better choices for kids. You could settle for a twin sized air mattress but what if you’ve got a really little one?
Mum and baby shouldn’t have to stay home. With a camping cot or portacot you can bring the new one along and they can sleep just as comfortably as they would at home. The calming sounds of the wild and natural darkness will help them sleep every so wonderfully in the tent with you.
Kids like to make nests when they sleep. This can take up your whole tent! If you can find a comfortable kids travel bed that fits them just right, they can build a little nest and keep the squirming all to themselves.
Kids grow so fast! It seems unreasonable to buy a kids travel bed when you know they will eventually grow into a full sized one. However, in order for them to be safe and feel secure, and have their own 'spot' for even a day-time sleep, a kids travel bed is an important consideration.
Baby traveling cribs and portacots are perfect for little ones, and you can easily pass them on or use it for the next one on the way! They don't have to be used just for camping holidays, either - we would use a portacot when visiting friends or when a family comes over to stay.
It can be hard to take babies traveling but with a camping crib your tot can sleep comfortably within its own room, and he or she won’t squiggle or crawl away. Two great camping cribs are the Peapod kidco Travel Beds and the BabyBjorn - Travel Crib . They take seconds to pop up and are easy to store. Both models offer a comfortable quilted base with a mesh top, just like a tent for the little one!
Kinderkot also makes baby and toddler travel beds with a self-inflating mattress. The fabric is 50 per cent UV resistant and has protective mesh and a washable sleeping bag.
The Regalo Portable Cot is perfect for those past the crib stage. Family snuggles are nice, but it can be a little cramped when you're all on one mattress in a tent. This cot is made just for kids. It's low height and washable fitted sheet make it easy for those that still have trouble sleeping alone. The cot it made from heavy-guage canvas that is durable so you can pass it down through the generations, and it all stows away into a carrying case that's easily stored.
Another possibility for a children's travel bed is the portable bunk beds. We have used these beds on many camping trips. They are great, but they are quite bulky to take along and some bunk beds take a degree to assemble. However, we managed to pass on this task to our kids and they assembled the bunk bed while we set up the tent.
Don't miss out on great family camping experiences because you feel it will be uncomfortable for your child to camp with you. There are many options out there for kids travel beds that you’ll have no problem finding a perfect sleeping space for your little ones. They'll have a perfectly comfortable space to lay their heads at the end of the day and you'll all be restored for the next day's activities!
Lastly, as kids move away from their small kids travel bed - they might just love to hop into your tent cot. There's a few to choose from - the original tent cot, the double, the oversize tent cot and the combo tent cot.
The Kamprite Original Tent Cot features welded aluminium frame and polyox hinges which can support up to 135kgs. The sleep pad offers comfort and added insulation, and can be converted into a chair or lounge.
With its No-see-um Mesh netting on each opening, and base keeping you 28cm above the ground, the Tent Cot lets you sleep in peace away from ground and air insects, and uneven or moist ground.
