CoziGo Bassinet Cover Review

CoziGo Bassinet Cover Review (formerly known as Fly Babee)

Updated May 2018 Disclosure: I was gifted this product in order to review it.

As an ex flight attendant and Mum, I was very keen on trying out the CoziGo Sleep Easy cover as soon as I had heard about it. Any product that helps my baby sleep, especially on the ultra long haul flight from UK to Australia, instantly grabs my attention!

The CoziGo is an airline bassinet cover and a UV stroller cover. It has various zips and flaps to check on your baby and to increase air flow when needed.

I first got to trial it when flying with a baby on a Malaysia Airlines and Emirates flight, all the way from the UK to Australia with my 11 month old, and then on the way back with my 1 year old. 

My first impressions, were that it was small, light and compact. It comes in a handy zipped pouch which has a Velco strap which can attach to your bag or stroller. (I just put it inside the zipped part of my carry on).

The Cozigo packs up compactly and can attach to your stroller or bag.

There is an outer zipped plastic cover too. Although I had opened it initially to try out on the pram, (as it doubles as a stroller sleep cover too!) I was very excited at the prospect of using it attached to a plane bassinet and curious to see how it worked in the smaller confines of an aircraft.

CoziGo bassinet cover review, Fly babee
Sleeping baby!

The CoziGo was easy to open, and it didn’t spring out and jar my husband in the eye, which is always a bonus, as I can be clumsy!

However, be aware that it has a pop out mechanism, so do make sure you have the space around you. It was so incredibly easy to attach to the bassinet, with the two clips on either side and then the elasticated edges to tuck over the sides.

 There are lots of peep holes to check on baby, which still keep them shielded from the light.

Now, for the most important bit and the bit you really want to know.. Did the CoziGo work?

Yes! We successfully had our baby sleep on all our flights. Our first sector was a night flight, departing at 22.30 on a Malaysian Airline A380. After the seatbelt sign was switched off and the bassinet put up, it was gone 11pm and consequently one very tired, cranky baby.

The cabin lights were bright as the service was about to begin, (no mood lighting on this flight) so I set up the CoziGo as soon as I was able and popped M in. After a little bit of soothing, she was fast asleep – for 9 hours!

Apart from having to remove her once from the bassinet (due to turbulence), she thankfully just resettled and went back to sleep.

Considering the in-flight service did take quite a while and  it seemed that someone forgot to turn the lights off, I was very glad of the CoziGo –   otherwise it would have been gone 2am until the cabin was dark and M was getting to the point of complete over-tiredness.

She woke up according to UK time, so had her breakfast, played for a little bit and then napped again in the bassinet with the CoziGo for another couple of hours just before landing. Great result!

We had no issues with using it from the crew, their only stipulations were the baby had to be facing them in the aisle and removed if the seat belt sign was on. (Note Qantas and Virgin allow you to keep babies in bassinets during any turbulence, as their restraints are slightly different.)

We also used the CoziGo on our day flight to Melbourne with Emirates on a B777 with no issues, as she napped beautifully, and also on our return night flights with no issue at all.

Using the CoziGo as a sunshield on a stroller.

The CoziGo has a very practical design, meaning there is lots of space inside the stroller, which is very handy if little ones wriggle or kick a lot in their sleep.

The long side zips and peepholes mean you can have it very well ventilated if baby is awake and you have the option to adjust them to you needs.

It blocks out 90% of light is UV 50+ and is fully breathable. I alternate between using this and another product, depending on where I am and how long I’m out for, purely because I do like being able to leave a sunshield/ sleep shade on the pram for some occasions.


Verdict:

Brilliant product that really works. A little pricey if you are planning to just use it a bassinet cover and are not a frequent flyer, but worth every penny if you use it as your daily pram cover and fly long haul often with your baby. If you are travelling with a baby, it’s an essential part of your baby travel gear; friends always ask to borrow mine and I often suggest it as a gift for new parents!

CoziGo (affiliate link) retails at AUS $99.95 and can be shipped worldwide and shipping is FREE to Australia USA, Canada from their site, or it can be bought from Amazon.co.uk if you are based in the UK (affiliate link)

It’s currently not available on the USA or Australia Amazon sites.

Flying With A Baby was sent a CoziGo to trial and review.  As always, all my opinions are truthful and I would never endorse a product I don’t genuinely love and continue to use.

Save for later?

Hi lovely, great review - however, as i was about to buy it, i checked the Amazon reviews and turns out BA no longer allow these as of April 2019 :( (We are going to Durban with BA, so sadly no use then!) Just wanted to let you know.

Hi Maggie,

Thank you for your kind comments. Please don’t worry, the official BA website says they are permitted. Sometimes Amazon isn’t up to date with the latest travel information. Here is the link to BA which a includes a picture of the CoziGo. Have a fab trip to Durban! https://www.britishairways.com/en-gb/information/family-travel/seating

Hi, Do you know whether this would fit over a carseat? We are traveling with our young one in a few months, and while I think she will be too big for the bassinets, we are planning to have her in her car seat on the plane. Thanks, Jen

Wow that sounds like it was great - hopefully the other airlines will catch up soon!

Thanks Colette. It's an amazing product. Unfortunately the airlines don't provide it, but its duel purpose means it's a good investment!

Hi there, we are flying a long haul night flight in Dec on BA. We have booked a bassinet. If we cannot use the fly babee yet, would you suggest any other options? We have a wriggler who prefers his tummy so im nervous he wont even like the bassinet so we also have the mattress already. Tia

I'm just checking directly with Fly Babee if BA now understand its fine for use and doesn't impede safety in any way. and Ill add a comment and alter post if so. If the Fly Babee for some reason still isn't allowed with BA, then I would suggest duct tape and a thin blanket. That's what I've done in the past. :-)
