Readybeds - are they any good?

I am looking at getting one of these for Oliver.

Does the sleeping bag come off
Are they warm/comfortable

We took Anna's one up to my Mums at the weekend for G to sleep on and it is awful, makes all sorts of squeaking farting noises, G ended up sleeping in with me and DH for the next 2 night. Anna has slept on it ok on a couple of occasions though

we have 2, they've only used them once, they are quite thin, need a blanket too, but they like them, think it was a bit of a novelty, they both really wanted to go to bed last time they stayed at grannys house

So what's the alternative (small space, no spare beds)

Humm not sure, he might be fine on one, Gracie likes to spread out and the noise annoyed her, what about a mattress on the floor or just a normal air bed, one of the velour topped ones, they are far better and more comfy x
ETA like this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Airbed-Coleman-/1 ... 500wt_1156

We had one for Martha that was great tbh, yes they are a bit squeaky but they are comfy enough and like Hanna says they like the novelty. The cover comes off but will rip if you try to take it off when fully blown up after a vomiting incident :roll: :giggle: .

I guess the alternative is a bed in a bag type thing/ single futon sort of cushion? or a sleeping bag on a camping mat

We have one, just got Nathan the next size up. He loves his and tries to sleep in it when at home.

He loves taking it to granny and grandads when we go to sleep there. It's the first thing he asks about! He sleeps all night on it too.

We had one for Rowan for when we went camping but found it just wasn't warm enough and she's getting too tall for it. We've just got her one of these which she'll use with a sleeping bag but could be used with a gro-bag or sheets and a duvet. I like the fact that she can't roll off the bed.
