When it comes to traveling with baby things can often get quite hectic. On-the-go families can rest easy (and so can your little one) with the new BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light. Weighing in at just 13lbs, including the carrying case, you won’t find another travel crib quite like it.
While we might not travel very far, we often find ourselves visiting friends and family members with the issue of where to lay the baby down. Traditional travel yards are big, bulky, and aren’t always "on-the-go friendly" for the more simple trips. With the BABYBJÖRN #TravelCribLight, however, the lightweight nature and compact travelling case actually make us want to take it with us and we never feel awkward bringing it into someone’s house.
Beyond its weight and convenient carrying case, you’ll find the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light is made with simplicity and baby’s safety in-mind. In the travel case you’ll find the crib frame and mattress. The frame snaps together in one swift motion. I know I can’t be alone in having struggled (and I mean really struggled) setting up a traditional pack-n-play, trying to get the sides to not only snap in place, but stay that way! With the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light there is no trying to snap the sides in place. When you open the travel crib up the legs unfold automatically and with the addition of the mattress, with build-in base plate, your travel crib is secure. It literally takes half a minute to set up the frame.
I love the time that was put in in regards to safety. The mattress is held down with an anchor system of sorts to ensure little ones can’t lift the mattress or find themselves trapped in any gaps that may occur from an unsecured mattress. The other feature that you may have already noticed in the photos is that the sides of the travel crib are made from soft mesh fabric from top to bottom. This allows baby an airy space and free breathing even when they lie their little faces up against the side of the crib. It also allow parents free view of baby from any angle.
We love this feature so much that I’ve begun using the crib around my home not only as a safe sleep environment outside of my baby’s room, but as a safe area for him to relax and hangout, where mommy can keep an eye on him at all time. And as an added bonus he also gets to keep an eye on mommy and can rest easy knowing I am never out of sight.
On top of all the wonderful features I have already listed, BABYBJÖRN knows, where babies go, so do messes. They’ve made sure that the mattress cover and crib fabric can be easily removed and machine washed. They also know that babies love to put things in their mouths and state “All materials close to your child are free from health hazardous substances and certified according to Oeko-Tex ® Standard 100, Class I and all relevant product safety standards. They are kind to your baby's skin and safe to taste.”*
Whether you’ll be traveling overseas or simply to grandmas, the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light makes the perfect travel companion at around the same size as a small suitcase with only half the weight – it really is quite light! Even as an extra crib that is easily movable from room to room, the BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light is worth looking into. I love how safe I feel allowing my son to sleep and explore within it and I love how simple it is for me to put up, take down, and pack back into the travel case. Finally, a portable place for my baby to sleep that I don’t mind taking with me and that isn’t a hassle.
