A comfort break?

I adore looking after my beautiful grandaughter.
At my age though, when I need to wee, I need to wee......so finding somewhere safe to place a 10 month old in a hurry so that I can dash to the lavatory has meant that I recently bought a travel cot/playpen for her..............did you hear her sobbing this week when I sat her in it for the first time?

She was quite loud.
I was quickly back in her sight.
She had her arms up ready for me to lift her out of the 'prison' and peace was restored......but I really really will need her to be ok in it now and again....I don't want to have her fall and hurt herself or come to any harm on my watch!
