Passed key safety tests
Whether the portacot passed the most important safety tests of the voluntary Australian Standard, AS/NZS 2195:2010, which goes above mandatory requirements. Tests include having breathable mesh on all sides, and no suffocation or strangulation hazards. Some models that pass key tests still have some minor failures and therefore aren't fully recommended, but are still worth considering.

Based on tests to the latest Australian standard for portable cots, AS/NZS 2195:2010, which goes above mandatory requirements. Supplied accessories such as bassinets and change tables are also assessed and factored into the score. The lower the score, the more significant the safety failures we found. Check the 'Bad points' for each portacot in our comparison table for details of any failures and manufacturer responses.

Wheels or castors make the cot easier to move, though some are light enough to move short distances without them.
The base can be set to a higher position, suitable for a sleeping infant up to about six months of age.
An accessory that attaches to the top of the cot frame, creating a small surface for nappy changing.
A Similar model is identical in most aspects except for a few. This means that a majority of its test results are identical so you can reasonably expect to get the same results from the model we tested, but for those aspects which aren't identical, we'll note these as "Not Tested" in the Compare tables.
A Tested model refers to a model that is still current and available in the Australian market. You should be able to order this model through your local retailer, or find it online.
These models can't be found in retailers or online or are no longer manufactured. You may still find these models on second hand websites, or in second hand dealers. Test methods may change over time, so criteria which can't be directly compared will contain an N/A.
An Identical model is exactly that. Performance characteristics will be identical and the only difference will be something trivial such as colour, which won't have an impact on performance.
These are models we haven't yet tested but that are available.
