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.

  • Sets up super quick, weighs hardly anything AND I use the rocking bassinet conversion in our room before baby gets moved to crib once they get too big. It travels everywhere with us. Jan 12, 2019

  • So lightweight compared to a pack and play, and since the bag doubles as a backpack it’s much easier to travel with. Only cons: special size sheets and the mattress can’t be tilted for reflux babies. Jan 03, 2019

    We bought this used. It is SO much easier to travel with than a normal pack n play. Two "issues": velcroing the mat down and the height of the putting the baby in from the top if you are petite. Jan 02, 2019

  • This is a fantastic travel crib. Easy to setup and pack back up. Love the ability to have the side open for our little one to crawl in and out when playing. Jan 02, 2019

  • Love how easy set up and take down are with this travel crib. Not to mention they don't use unsafe chemicals to treat the fabric. Dec 28, 2018

  • So lightweight and easy to put together. Dec 14, 2018

    We are currently using the bassinet as her main sleep space. So easy to set up and move around! She sleeps great in it. Dec 11, 2018

  • A must have. Small/ light enough to fit in a suitcase, the flat sleep surface is comfortable for baby, sets up quickly, and the zipper is great for grandma and grandpa or laying with a fussy baby. Nov 16, 2018

    We use this as our main crib. There’s no weight limit since the mattress is on the floor. I also love the opening – convenient for soothing/lying next to baby (lifesaver when sleep training). Nov 05, 2018

    Lightweight and easy to set up and takedown. Great for travel. Oct 27, 2018

  • Easily set up and packed down and the entire fabric is removable and washable. Small enough to be used as a carry on. PERFECT for travel. The mattress is a little more plush than I expected as well. Oct 12, 2018

  • Pros- wonderful to travel with, packs up small, lightweight, big enough to lay in there with baby if needed, non toxic, washable. Cons- sits on the floor, not easy to pack up, thin mattress. Sep 27, 2018

  • Soooooo good. Portable, actually easy to set up and take down. Our kid slept in it from 7- 11 months. Sep 12, 2018

  • I really love the bassinet feature but hate that the full size crib puts her directly on the ground. I wish it was elevated somewhat. Aug 28, 2018

    My son is 17 months and we still use it on a daily basis. He likes cuddling in there with his stuffed animals and books. It’s the perfect size for travel too! Aug 19, 2018

  • I love this portable crib. It is so much lighter than others and easy to fold up and carry. The zip side is great for breastfeeding moms to lay next to baby and get baby to sleep. Aug 13, 2018

  • We love this product. It is so simple to put together and my little one seems to enjoy being in here. The side zip is a nice bonus feature. Aug 10, 2018

  • 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.

    Roslyn L. - Mar 19, 2014

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