We believe life should be spent together. So we designed a crib to make it easier to do just that.
The Lotus is more than a travel crib. It's an EVERYWHERE crib. So light. So portable. It sets up in 15 seconds. Use it everywhere, everyday. At Home. At friends' for dinner. At a playgroup. Across town. In the airport. Across the world.
And the Lotus travel crib is beautiful. It has clean lines, art-inspired graphics and logos, soft textured fabrics, and modern colors.
Easy for You:
Since it's effortless to take the Lotus portable crib with you and super fast to setup, you'll go more places and see more friends & family. Not just on overnight trips, but all the time at home and across town. And since it's a lightweight backpack, both hands are available for everything else, including the baby and diaper bag. Guava Family is the only company in the world that makes cribs that pack into backpacks.
Fun for them:
Nothing makes us happier than to see how much fun the little ones have in the Lotus travel crib. Give them their own way in and out, and they think of it as their world, not a prison. The side door, which can be zipped and secured closed turns the crib into a secure space where they'll love to play, laugh, sleep. We won't blame you for climbing in with them either....
Safe For Everyone:
No Phthalates. No Lead. No PBE or PBDE Flame Retardants. Full-side breathable mesh. ASTM F406-11B Approved. Also, the Lotus Crib cover is removable and machine washable. Spit up. Slobber. Drool. It's only a matter of time...
What You Get:
The Lotus Crib comes with the crib, mattress, and bag (with convertible backpack straps), and instruction manual, and our heartfelt thanks for joining the Guava Family!
what parents are saying
After looking for alternatives to a pack & play we discovered this travel crib. It is very light and portable so perfect while you are traveling or just looking for something to move from room to room (Jun 10, 2017)
This super lightweight, easy-to-set-up (just 15 seconds!) travel crib actually folds small enough to fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane, and it’s got backpack straps so you can tote it wherever you go. It converts to a rocking bassinet so perfect for at-home use from the earliest days, and it’s side-zip means it also can be used as a play area for an older toddler.
The Catch: Parents complained about the excessive amount of velcro tabs needed to secure the mattress.

I have the entire GUAVA lotus travel kit (bassinet, crib, sun shade, sheets). Best purchase ever! We used the bassinet until my daughter went to her crib, and we use the crib for travel all the time!

I bought this as a gift for my brother & sister in law for traveling (they live in Dubai and travel often). They love it! Lightweight, easy to pack, and accessing from bottom feature is a value add!

The lotus crib with the bassinet attachment is stellar for quick set up and packs up small for easy travel. We happily used it for our main bassinet in our room until our son grew out of it.

Love the backpack feature, safe materials and features like the zip entrance, optional sunshade etc. More versatile than the one we have and can go on fun adventures out and about with us.

Awesome! My 4 month son and I made a trip by ourselves about 21 hours each way...this was a lifesaver! So easy to set up, made our nights so much easier! Will also use it for camping in our RV

We used this for traveling to Europe with our 10 mo. Super easy to setup and light weight to carry as a backpack. Fit in overhead bin on airplane as well which helped keep it in pristine condition.

The bassinet portion has been great on our travels. We’re now starting to use the main playard. It lacks storage/a changing station, but it is light and portable. While i like it, the price is steep.

Our daughter sleeps so well in her Lotus Crib! Its so easy to set up and travels well. The zip door makes it great for playtime as well! We'll be able to use it for a long time since it has no limit!

This is in my top 5 musts! I don’t personally own one (I’ve been borrowing from a friend), but will need to purchase one as soon as she wants it back. So light, easy to set up, and perfect for travel

Love this! Use I it weekly for naps and nighttime at his grandparents' house. Folds up into a lightweight backpack for travel. The crib sheet is a little bit annoying to attach but no big deal!

LOVE this for my toddler - the zip side means I don't have to lift her in and out - would have been handy for soothing/nursing to sleep when she was younger too! Love that the carry case has straps!

Hands down our FAVORITE baby item. So easy to use. The mattress on the ground and the zippered door are game changers. We bring it on trips, to the beach, pool, everywhere. I'd choose it over a crib.

We have traveled everywhere with this. The best feature is the zip opening. With my oldest, I use to lay down next to him until he fell asleep, then I would sneak out, w/ him enclosed, safe & sound.

We've used this for camping trips and traveling. Absolutely love it. Lightweight and folds/unfolds easily. It's longer but skinnier than other travel play yards. We also bought the bassinet conversion

I love this play yard. A million times better and more comfortable than Graco. Super easy to set up and travel with. Get the padded sheet for extra comfort. Baby has no problem sleeping here!

Very lightweight, and it took me about 90 seconds to set up, without reading the instruction. This fits in our checked luggage bag, or is small enough to use as your carryon. A must have to travel
Mar 19, 2015
This is the best, so lights easy to set up and undo and best of all- it isn't an eyesore! :D do be warned though that normal pack n play sheets don't fit it, it's slightly bigger than normal ones

I like this a lot, but once baby is out of the lotus bassinet it is difficult to put him all the way on the ground in this. It will be great when he is older, but I got the Nuna for travel now.

I bought this in place of a pack and play and I'm so glad I did. It's amazing! So easy to set up and take down, fits in our big suitcase for air travel/or can be carryon, and is great for toddlers.

It might take some maneuvering. The good thing is it's really light, but the mattress takes a little time to Velcro to the base, which you wouldn't want to have to do often. I would suggest checking the measurements against your doors to be sure.
