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.

    We used this as everything from a travel crib to a toddler playpen and even as a barrier to contain our toddler in one room away from the others. So easy to set-up and put away. Loved it! May 19, 2020

  • The lotus is amazingly compact, light and super easy to set up to use as a travel crib. It also comes with a cover to use outside to protect from bugs, but we used it inside to make the area darker May 15, 2020

  • Easy to set up, stylish and lightweight. We also have the bassinet hookup and that’s also easy to set up. We’ve traveled with this and it fit in our suitcase. Highly recommend and it’s worth the price May 14, 2020

  • The Lotus is easy to travel with and set-up/take down. We purchased the expanded package and it’s great for letting baby nap outside on nice days. It’s mattress is not too hard but does slightly curl. May 09, 2020

  • I simply love this travel crib. It’s easy to open and close. Being extremely lightweight and compact when closed, it’s truly a travel companion! May 07, 2020

  • So easy to set up, no weight limit due to mattress resting on the floor, and easy to carry b/c it's lightweight and has a backpack style carrier! Just need custom sheets. May 05, 2020

  • My absolute favorite pack and play style travel crib. Lotus has upped the game with this light weight crib. It's super easy to put together, can grow with the little one and will fold up compact. May 02, 2020

    I currently have this at grandmas house for when my guy stays over and i love it. We took it to disney and it made life so easy to have a backpack style carry case. Apr 29, 2020

  • Great product but I do wish it had a bassinet feature that didn’t require a separate kit. That’s what is keeping me from loving this product. Apr 14, 2020

Everyone
  • Q: I would like to be able to move this between rooms and also between floors of the house. Will it fit through doorways? Thank you!

  • 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.

  • Yes, absolutely. It folds in seconds and is very light weight!
