    Magic cot- super super easy and similar price as Phil and teds. A simple twist to pack up

    I would suggest checking both of them out in a store where they are set up, I thought the Baby Bjorn was sturdier and easier to put up and down but that would be a personal preference I guess.

    Also check the thickness of the mattress too. We have the Baby Bjorn and love it. It was my DS bed for 7 months when we were living in a hotel for us it was worth the cost.

    Look at the Valco zephyr porta cots. Just like the Bjorne ones but under $150. Had mine for 2 years. Still going strong. Very regular use. Very easy to put up and pack away.

    We have the Baby Bjorn one and love it. One of our best purchases. DH happened to have a work trip to America and picked one up for a fraction of the cost. DS is 3 years and still fits in it although he is a small 3.

    Oh forgot to add that we picked the Phil and Teds over the Baby Bjorn because it is much lighter and we had to take it on a domestic flight as a carry on luggage. It was very easy to carry with us.

    Check the product review website, the Phil and Ted gets really good reviews which made it hard for me to justify the price tag of the baby Bjorn despite being a major brand snob

    It depends how much use you'll get out of it though, might be worth spending more if you will use it extensively.
