This is a stylish and functional travel crib that works as a playpen.
The sides are very low and it's a bit pricey.
This is a decent portable crib option for smaller babies but it does cost a little more due to the designer name.
BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light 2
Having a young baby in the house presents some problems because I have other children including two toddlers. The older kids all have sports activities so we are gone quite a bit at practices and watching games. Having a travel crib that doubles as a playpen is a great idea and would make my life so much easier since the baby is still sleeping more than he is awake. This is just about as essential to a new parent as a great baby monitor. I need something that is lightweight and the folds up compactly so it does not take up a great deal of space in the car. I decided to look at the BABYBJORN Travel Crib Light 2 and am pleasantly surprised.
It seems as though this crib has just about everything I would need in one and the price is not bad at just over two hundred dollars. Since I will get plenty of use out of it the price is well worth it as long as it holds up to what I put it through. I like that it is waterproof for those times when accidents happen and the baby’s diaper leaks. This will make cleaning it so much easier and I do not have to worry about the mattress getting ruined when a bottle leaks or even if it rains and it gets a little wet before I put it away.
- Easy to Set Up
- Insulated Mattress
- Net Fabric Shell
It is so deep that until my child can stand, I could literally throw my back out bending over to pick up my son. He is still small so it would be nice if there was a system that could raise and lower the sleeping platform as the child ages. When they are small, it could be high enough that they would not fall out but not so deep that mom is constantly bending over. Then as the child grows into a toddler it could be lowered so it is too deep for them to climb out of. This is really the only thing I could find that I do not like about this portable crib.
I Love Everything Else
I really could not find anything else that concerns me, it is portable just like I want so it fits in my car and has many other great features that I did not even know I wanted. I like the net fabric shell so I can see my baby while he is sleeping and I am helping one of the kids with their sports’ gear. The insulated mattress is perfect for the chilly spring or fall days and will help to keep my baby warm for the morning games. It’s also very easy to set it up and take it down and sometimes when we are running late there is no extra time to spare so this is a huge bonus for me. One of the worst parts about buying a travel crib is the mattress is so thin that it does not support the baby and then there is that middle bar that can be uncomfortable too. This does not have either one of those as it comes with a thick mattress and does not have a middle bar and instead has a wood constructed bottom for more comfort and support.
Do Other Mothers Like It Too?
“We just recently purchased this crib for our 18 month old son because we are moving and he needs to sleep in a travel crib for a few weeks. He has been sleeping in this for almost a week and sleeps in it much better than in his own crib! He has PLENTY of room and loves how the sides are so soft. The mattress is very soft and the angled legs don't really bother us and are definitely necessary for stability”
So does 'bear in a square'...
“This travel bed is smaller, lighter, and altogether less cumbersome than your typical Pack-n-Play, and my 18-month-old sleeps beautifully in it. A snap to set up and break down, and the small footprint makes it easy to fit in any tiny hotel or guest room. Pricey, for sure, but if you travel a lot it is certainly worth it.”
I really do like this travel crib and to be quite honest I
tried to find something bad about it. I
would definitely recommend this crib to any busy family who needs to have a
travel crib for trips away from home. It
could even be used as a secondary crib in the living room or office areas so
the baby never need be alone until they are a bit older. It will grow perfectly for use when a baby
gets older and becomes a toddler. It
goes from crib to playpen without missing a beat and with this type of
longevity it is well worth the price. I think it's worth the price when you consider all the benefits you get with this porta crib option.
