Recently we have gone on a few over night trips. Now anyone with a baby knows that even when you are just going away for one evening it seems that you have to pack everything in the entire house just short of the kitchen sink. Many times hotels provide travel size cribs which would mean one less thing to pack, but I’m just not comfortable utilizing that service and prefer to bring something from home for my little one. For the longest time I would lug our 30+ pound pack n play with us. Yes, I know they are made for traveling and fold down relatively small (yet still take up way too much trunk space). And I admit that pack n plays seem to function perfectly for traveling… I’m sure you caught that – “seem to.” I say that because I have found a piece of baby gear that has totally replaced our pack n play when it comes to traveling and I am so excited to share it with you.
Introducing the BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2.
There are so many things that I love about this product. Check it out.
It is super light weight at only 11 pounds which includes the carrying case. Oh and that carrying case – it’s unbelievable small. In fact when the BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2 is folded the dimensions are only 19 x 24 x 6 inches which means there will be plenty of trunk room for all those other baby necessities. Plus the convenient handle makes it a breeze to carry. Notice the brief case like shape of this carrying case? So much easier to carry than a typical pack n play.
The BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2 is almost too simple to set up. In one smooth motion it is up then all that’s left to do is lay the mattress inside and you’re set. That’s it! Plus packing it up is almost as simple. Remove the mattress pad, flip the travel crib over, release each leg, fold in, then fold the entire unit in half. It then fits inside the carrying case. So simple.
It’s obvious that I love how light weight, portable, and user friendly the BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2 is, but none of that matters if it isn’t comfortable for baby. That is why I am pleased to say the mattress is thick and comfy unlike the hard board feeling from traditional pack n plays. The sturdy mattress also functions to keep the Travel Crib firmly on the floor which ensures your bundle of joy will be safe. And not only is the design of the BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2 aesthetically pleasing, but the inward sloping sides create a snug cozy feeling for your little one.
A few more things I want to mention… the BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2 can be used from newborn to approximately three years old which means you will get plenty of use out of this great product. The fabric easily unzips and is machine washable which is definitely a perk you aren’t going to find in many traditional pack n plays. And it’s available in a few different colors.
The BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2 does exactly what I need it to do in a simple manner making me one happy mama and I highly recommend it. In fact my traditional pack n play may never see the light of day again!
