Relaxing is essential for little growing minds and bodies, which is why a comfortable crib is a must. Unfortunately, baby won’t always be able to sleep in his or her comfy cot at home. In these instances, travel cribs and playards come in handy. The good news is that most travel cribs for toddlers and babies are just as cozy as regular cribs – you simply need to know which model to buy. We share some helpful advice below.
Purchasing the Right Travel Crib
Here at Little Canadian, our online shoppers can’t get enough of our portable crib selection! At the moment, some of the most popular choices include the Phil & Teds Traveller Travel Crib, the Kidco Dream Pod Travel Bassinet and the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib.
When looking for a portable mini crib that you can take along with you wherever you go, one of the biggest considerations will be that of weight. The lighter, the better! The Phil & Teds Traveller Travel Crib weighs just 2.8kg/6lb, for instance.
If you’re someone who travels by air on a regular basis, you’ll want to make sure that the travel crib you purchase is carry-on compliant.
Furthermore, you’ll want something that you know will be comfortable for your baby. So be sure to check on the fabrics used – they’ll need to be super soft and gentle on the skin, especially if your little one is still a newborn.
Another way in which to make sure that you are buying the right travel bassinet or crib is to read reviews written by other parents. This will give you a good idea of exactly what you are buying and what to expect. If you’re having trouble deciding between two different models, reviews are also great for helping you make up your mind. If that’s not enough, chatting face to face with other moms and dads can also help you feel more confident in your purchase.
