    Default Baby is too big for portacot and can't sleep!

    I am travelling at the moment and my usually great night sleeper, my 16-month-old is awake every hour or so and is clearly very uncomfortable in his portacot! He tries to sleep but is so restricted (he's very tall) he just can't get comfortable. He has never co-slept so putting him in bed with me does not calm him, he either screams or plays! He loves to move around a lot in his cot at home too.

    What can I do to support his getting a good nights sleep while away from home? What 'beds' have you used? Thanks mums!

    Would he lay on a mattress on the floor?, that way he has more space to move around?

    We haven't tried it but he moves so much and actually favours laying right up against the sides of his cot so I'm pretty sure that won't work.

    I use a toddler rail. It's just a travel one so folds down and is just a mesh and plastic rail. Ds2 was always against it when I checked on him. I have no idea where to get one though. Mine is 8 yrs old and was 2nd hand.
