    Now that I know the 'trick' to mine, it's easy. But by god I used to fight with it at the start!

    That's the plan but we will need it in Jan when we head away for a week. I guess worst case scenario, we'll just chuck it on the roofracks still up to bring it home

    Next time, I'm not going to get a portacot.

    End of story.

    I'm sure a towel on the floor will go just fine.

    I have got away with 2 kids with not buying a portacot, only borrowing at hotels.
    With our 3rd and 4th we have started camping and needed one.

    Default Folding up Portacots...

    We got given 1 from family friends DH and I left DD with his parents one day and his dad stuffed it good the concrete weight in the middle started to flake and crumble its not hard most have instructions on the base which ours did made it soo easy cause all I did was take a deep breathe and do it step by step
    It was a life saver on more than one accounts DH was at a mates place with DD and she was safe on the portacot away from the dog and picnics etc made it so much easier and safer when I was cleaning and she was playing on the floor
