A Whole New World: Phil&Ted's Traveller

Yep, that is my son. Since we are going away to Perth with our lovely son for a week, my husband and I talked about portable cot for weeks. Whether to borrow it from the hotel we staying in or to purchase one. I did some research over some portable cot and this Phil & Ted's portable cot called "Traveller" caught my eyes. Last weekend I brought my husband with me to a baby shop in order to see the product, and he fell in love with it too straight away. Not only the fact that it is not as bulky as other portable cots but also the quality of materials and its design impressed him. So we grabbed it straight away.
Building the cot is not that quick and easy. It is just like building a tent. My husband had fun doing it as if he was at camping! As soon as it was up and ready, we put our son in there. And we laughed so much for more than ten minutes just watching his reaction! This will explain why.

My five months old son started to love discovering everything around him and this cot was certainly one of them. He was snailing around every corner, bouncing against the mesh wall, rolling over on the mattress, licking the fabrics and etc etc. He was very good at test driving for sure!

Aw... How can I not love this child! My baby never had a bed transition because we did not have a bassinet for him. (He went straight to his cot which was HUGE for 3kg baby.) I read many scary stories about parents going through hells because of the transition. My son has not been so difficult or fussy with anything except the bottle refusal so far. So this trip to Perth will be an interesting one. The first family trip ever! I am excited.
