Hey there. I've popped in before, asking about flying with an infant. Now I'm wondering if anyone has ever bought a travel sleeper or bed of any kind for their little one's. I don't really feel comfortable putting her on a bed - we cosleep, but our mattress is on the floor - and yet I don't really want her to have to sleep on the cold floor. I was thinking of just using blankets... she'll be 18 months when we travel. We'll be staying in a 4 star hotel in Galway, Ireland, and while I think they might have cots, I don't really want anything that'll be too far off the ground. Plus, she's a very difficult and particular sleeper, so I'd like to be able to buy something in advance to get her used to it before we travel.

Any advice?

I have not bought a travel sleeper, but over on the Cruise Critic boards, it's very popular for people to ask the cruise line for a crib mattress only and they put it on the floor for their kids to sleep on. That way they still have a comfy mattress but they don't risk falling out of the bed. Maybe the hotel can provide one for you as well? Good luck, I hope you find a solution that works. Your baby girl is precious!

I think MaddiesMama has a perfect solution. We have been several places where we pulled the mattress off the bed, but I think using just a crib mattress would be even better. Have fun in Ireland!

That is a great idea! I'll have to check with the hotel. I would imagine being a 4 star, they should have it, but you never know... European hotels are very strange, lol. Thanks a ton, I'll let you know!

One thing to remember. If the hotel says it has a "baby cot" that is not a small bed, it is a regular crib or play pen with sides on it. It is just the British way of saying it.

If you are flying British Air even the airlines have little sleeper things that kids in isle seats can use to nap in on the way over. They are pretty nice.

Enjoy your trip,
Mattiez

We're flying Aer Lingus, which is the national airline of Ireland, and the cheapest tickets by far... Something like $1000 cheaper than the next closest!

But hmm, I'll have to double check the website. Thanks for that tip!
