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.”
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.
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.
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.
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.
You need not worry about the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light tipping over or not staying securely in place. 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 organic cotton fitted sheet is designed just for the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light and provides even more comfort and coziness for you baby. Your baby will not be able to resist a nap in the thing, making traveling in unfamiliar places a less unsettling experience for them.
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.
