About the Travel Crib Light

“The improved Travel Crib Light has airy mesh that extends all the way to the floor, a new feature which will allow parents and baby to see one another for a feeling of added security. In addition, newly added loops make the mattress even easier to attach to the frame. Travel Crib Light has retained the features that made earlier generations so appealing to parents, including its lightweight  frame that sets up in one swift movement. When not in use, Travel Crib Light can be quickly folded up and stored away in its travel case. The crib’s soft mattress sits firmly on the floor, providing a safe place for baby to sleep or play.”

My Review

One baby product that I have always had for each of my children (and used quite frequently) is a play yard. They are such a great baby product to have around and I always made good use of mine. However, there were some major negative features about the play yards I used in the past… one being that they were too large (which made traveling with it a hassle) and it was very difficult packing it away in the carrier. These features really caused an inconvenience and I was never able to find one that was perfect in ever way. That was until I discovered the amazingly convenient  BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light.  Let me take a few minutes to show you why I believe the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light is the perfect travel crib that every expectant mother should consider buying.

BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light Review (Getting Ready For Baby Gift Guide)The BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light is only thirteen pounds and comes in a very slim and compact carrier. The size of the carrier allows you to easily bring it with you wherever you go and you don’t have to worry about it taking up a lot of space. It is also really easy to carry with the secure handles and favorable shape.
BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light Review (Getting Ready For Baby Gift Guide)The BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light is also literally only two pieces (the frame and the mattress) which makes setup so unbelievably easy.Simply slide the two pieces out from the bag, pull open the frame and the legs will snap into place. The only thing you have to do now is place the mattress inside and you are ready to lay baby down for a nap.

BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light Review (Getting Ready For Baby Gift Guide)In addition to the soft and cozy mattress, the sides of the crib are made from an airy mesh fabric. This fabric allows your baby to easily breath through the fabric if they get close to the sides during a nap. All parents know what an important feature this is and it’s so reassuring to know that you don’t have to worry about baby suffocating. The see-through mesh will also allow you to keep a good eye on your adorable little one as they rest. Plus this allows baby to keep an eye on her family while she enjoys some playtime in her crib.

As mentioned in the image below, the mattress has a built-in base plate that will keep the crib standing firmly on the floor. You also have the reassurance of knowing that if an older sibling leans on the sides to peak in, he/she isn’t going to tip it over.

The BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light is perfect for children from 0-3 years and that is exactly how long each of my children used one for. Young children needs naps (there is no question about that) and sometimes it can be difficult taking one when they are in an unfamiliar place. The solution shouldn’t be to just stay home and miss out on all the great activities outside of the house. Your next best idea is to provide your baby with a place they can feel safe and secure enough to sleep in, no matter where they are. The BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light provides just that and I could not imagine not having one of these now! The size is just perfect, not at all bulky and it is easy to relocate. Packing it up takes only seconds and the lightweight of it allows you to carry it with you everywhere. This is most certainly a must have baby product that I highly recommend, it doesn’t even come close in comparison to all of the other play yards. This high quality travel crib is, in my opinion, perfect in every way and exactly what I was looking for.

  1. I love that it is only 13 lbs and how thin and compact size is it. Makes it easy for a small sized person like myself to move it around. Love how easy it is to just grab and go.

  2. I love all the pics that you took of the product and the detailed review..This seems to be a travel crib that i would so love for my grandbabies to have…

  3. i love that it is compact and easy to travel with! love all the pictures you provided of it opened and packaged up!

  4. I love how compact and light it is. The last thing you need is something heavy and cumbersome when you are already toting a baby.

  5. Love this product. The photo comparing the baby & toddler (0-3 yrs old) is a great visual of how long a person can use the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib. Looks so easy to use!

  6. I love that it is so lightweight. It is hard enough when traveling the amount of stuff you need for a baby and this would be great to take on vacation.

  7. What a great product. This brand is the best. I love your review and you covered it all. Thanks!

  8. I like that it is easy to set up and folds up much smaller than a traditional pack-and-play.

  9. 13lbs! lightest crib you could ever imagine plus it folds up into a tiny pack quick and easy for travel.

  10. wow, love how easy it is to put together and put back, and not being that heavy is wonderful.. love the age bracket that the child can be to be in it 🙂 thanks @tisonlyme143

  11. 13 lbs is amazing and how small it folds up into. We just went on a trip and knowing that the matress is comfortable enough to use as a crib is great to know because its amazing hotels dont all have cribs!

  12. I can not believe it only weighs 13 lbs! That is super helpful!
    What a neat crib! We are in desperate need of this!

  13. I love how low the the ground the crib is because it would be difficult for a child to climb out of. This would also be perfect for our family vacations!

  14. Great review, Really shows just how easy the Travel Crib Light really is.I love that it’s so comfortable also, that’s really great ♥

  15. I love how detailed your review is. I’ve had awful experiences with travel cribs in the past. It’s like a rubix cube! Sides have to be certain height, bottom has to be sort of down but not all the way, (in order to snap in place) they’re heavy, NEVER go back in the bag…this one seems easy and very self explanatory.

  16. I love the BABYBJORN Travel Crib Light. One of the things I like about it is how little it weighs. I also like how easy it set up. I had a portable crib that only my daughter and son-in-law could work. I hated that.

  17. WOW only 13lbs!! My cat weighs more than that!! This would be a life saver for us. We HATED dragging our pack n’ play everywhere and our son never wanted to stay in it. He grew out of it VERY quickly since he is a big boy, not only could he climb out of it before the age of 1 1/2 years, he was also TOO HEAVY! I was always afraid that he was going to topple it over when trying to get out. I had to put it away…well at least try to find a place to put it since it’s so bulky and like I said taking it places…it took up like half of our trunk (ok maybe not that much but it seemed like it). Anyway….now when we go places and needs a nap, he has to sleep on us because he rolls off of EVERYTHING!! He is such a flopper…it would really be nice to have this to trip going to go see family an hour away for him to sleep in.

  18. BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light looks so amazing to use and easy to take with so baby always has a great bed to sleep in when traveling.

  19. I love how easy it is to fold up and take to Grandma’s house. I also like that it is lightweight.

  20. I so love that it sets up in one swift movement and that its light weight. Need to get one for upcoming baby 🙂

  21. We’re going on vacation in August, and our current play yard would be quite big to bring. This would be great to have. I love how light it is.

  22. I would LOVE to take this camping with us this summer! Pack n Plays are so big and take up so much space! This looks amazing!

  23. I like that it’s lightweight. I hate lugging our pack n play around. It’s heavy and a pain to pack up.

  24. I really need one of this. We travel a lot to visit my family. I like that it is lightweight and comfortable.

  25. I love that it is only 13 pounds! It folds nicely into a compact carrying bag for easy travel!

  26. I love that this playpen is compact & light for trips, and that not only the mattress cover but the playpen fabric cover are removable for washing.

  27. I just love the carrying case for this! I know ours was such a blessing to have, especially when visiting friends.

  28. Being a grandmother that has grandbabies sleeping at my house at least once a week, I want a travel crib that is lightweight, easy to get up & put away, and compact enough to store conveniently when it is not needed. I think from the review, that the BABYBJORN Travel Crib is just what I need.

  29. I’m in love with this playpen! We’re using our bulky and ugly one right now and I’d love the sleek lightweight Travel Crib Light!

  30. This would be perfect for my 1 year old grandson who will be living in a camper for a while soon.

  31. It looks easy to set up and break down. I love pack and plays but its usually a struggle to get it set/put up. And they are heavy. Hard to get done carrying a baby. Would love to try this one!

  32. This sounds like a great product! Thank you for showing so much about it! I love how portable and easy it looks and that it can be used way past the baby age!

  33. This is an amazing travel crib. I cannot believe it folds up to be so flat. My husband and I travel a lot and this would be so easy to check on an airplane.

  34. I completely agree with you that the major drawback of most play yards is that they are not travel-friendly. We take a lot of trips on the weekend, but we have a small car and haven’t been able to bring a play yard due to the limited space. That’s why I am so excited about the Baby Bjorn – it looks so easy to fold up and carry and doesn’t take up a lot of space. This would be such a great product to have when our second son arrives in July.

  35. This looks so lightweight, convenient, and perfect for travel! We might have to get one of these to leave at both sets of grandparents’ homes…

  36. This looks so amazing! We’ve had a pack and play for a while that has been great, but its a bit bulky when it comes to packing in the trunk, and the mattress isn’t the softest. I love how flat this folds up, how the mattress looks thick, and that you can wash practically everything!!

  37. I love how lightweight this play yard is! I have always had a pack n play for all 3 of my kids, but they are so heavy and not very convenient for travel! There are always multiple bars, and even without it is very heavy in it’s bag. I think that is definitely one of my favorite features of this BabyBijorn Crib Lite, that and that all mesh surrounding! We live in a hot climate, so this is perfect for when we go on picnics or to the beach.

  38. This would be so perfect when my grandson is visiting. 🙂 His parents are always on the go and they could keep this in the vehicle and have it where needed.

  39. This looks amazing and would be great for camping and trips to the park or even vacations as it is light weight and compact! I would love to purchase one for my little guy!

  40. I love how compact this is! Right now I have to take 2 huge pack and plays with me every time we spend the night somewhere because two of my kids are still younger than 2. It would be so nice to have these to pack instead! 🙂

  41. I really like the portability of this crib. Folds up nice and compact and then easy to set up quickly.

  42. I love how you use pictures in this review! I’m such a visual person and I love how you illustrated everything with photos and examples, just wonderful.

  43. I don’t have kids yet, but I always wondered what we’d do with our baby at night when we traveled. I’m going to have to get one of these someday!

  44. I love Bay Bjorn products; I remember when my kids were little the travel beds were so big and bulky but this makes traveling easy with how small it folds up. I would love to get one for the grandbabies for when they sleep over

  45. What a great travel crib! The one we have right now is heavy, difficult to set up and it’s an eyesore. This is so much better!

  46. I would love to have this for when we travel. Sounds very simple to set up. Would be nice for home too when I need a safe place to keep baby when I’m trying to cook or something.

  47. I love how lightweight and easy to put together and take down this travel crib is! If I didn’t already have a packnplay from my son, I would definitely be getting this for my newest daughter!

  48. This is an amazing review. This playard meets literally all of my needs! My family lives out of state so I am frequently traveling and I also have limited trunk space so the portability of thos is amazing. I also love how even a toddler can fit so I can use this for both of my littles

  49. Great review, I have been thinking about getting a pack and play but this would be great for travel. I could easily pack this in a suitcase, when I visit my family out of town.

  50. This is for sure on my registry. Great for travel and just a sweet and safe place for my soon to arrive baby to hang out. Thanks!

  51. I love this for when we travel to see grandparents, easy to carry and easy to assemble plus safety for the baby.

  52. This travel crib is one of the best ones you can find. What I love the most is that the fabric is removable and can be safely machine washed.
    Most pack and play’s don’t offer this option and you can only spot clean them, which means you cannot clean them in depth.
    It is a bit more expensive than other travel cribs, but totally worth it.
