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.

    This is our new playspace, nap area, etc. I love that we are able to leave the side open to sit and play with him or to comfort him when taking a quick nap. Easy set-up! Jun 16, 2019

  • Absolutely love this for travel. Much more comfortable than a regular pack and play and folds up much better. Jun 12, 2019

  • We purchased this with the bassinet addition for traveling, it was perfect when our baby was younger! Easy to travel with, fits seamlessly in an airplane overhead bin, and it’s not too heavy or bulky. Jun 10, 2019

  • Great for travel, easy to set up, comfortable to carry. I just wish the sheets weren’t so pricey. All in all I’d say it’s worth the hype. Jun 05, 2019

    The thing I love most about this is that there are no flame retardants in this which is very important for the health of my baby. Additionally it folds up easily and compact with a carry bag. Jun 03, 2019

  • 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. May 30, 2019

  • Best travel crib! Longer than most, so it fits them longer. May 22, 2019

  • The absolute best feature is that it has no weight limit so LO can use this until she has her own bed. Love being able to use the side opening to nurse without moving her. Plus, it's pretty. May 14, 2019

  • Tested out a lot of pack n plays. The side zipper really comes in handy for multiple reasons. We got it so when we travel, we can slide the twins in through the zipper without waking them. Love this!! May 01, 2019

  • Love the zipper- it makes it easy to lay and spend time with baby without having to lift or bend over Apr 16, 2019

  • We love this portable crib and its minimalist design. I passed on ones with different heights because there were too many pieces. The only con is putting the sheet over the mattress can be tricky. Apr 07, 2019

  • It’s so light, I can pick it up at two weeks post partum. We have it set up downstairs so that the baby can nap as I complete chores Mar 17, 2019

  • There is a side zipper to get in and out of the crib. The is a lock on that zipper, so little one can’t just let themselves out. Genius! I feel like this company thought of everything with this crib! Mar 16, 2019

    So light and compact especially compared to my Graco pack and play. My toddler still likes it bc he can zip in and out. Mostly used for my newborn. Mar 12, 2019

  • 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!
