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.

    Lightweight. So easy to set up/break down. LO sleeps great in it. Love the mesh/soft sides for when she sleeps up against the wall. Double purpose: We leave at in-laws and then take w/ us for travel. Dec 01, 2019

  • Great travel crib! So easy to put together! Love that the zipper has a way to keep little hands from opening it while allowing adults to access it easily. The mattress is firm yet soft. Great backpack Nov 24, 2019

    Used this for extended international travel and hubby carried it easily through the airport. Easy set up once you get the hang of it! Also, it’s chic. Nov 23, 2019

  • This is so easy to use and travel with! The mattress is also much more comfortable than a standard play yard. The backpack travel bag is a plus too! Nov 14, 2019

  • Love how this product sits on the floor so that we can leave it open when laying on the floor. I only wish that the mattress cover didn’t have to be taken off before storing back into the bag. Nov 03, 2019

  • I can not say enough good things about this travel bed! We spent 3 weeks in Thailand with our four month old. The lotus was light weight and easy to transport! It takes less than a minute to put up. Oct 12, 2019

  • Looove this, have used many times, used till 4 month as bassinet. Only wish is that you could raise the height to mid high Oct 07, 2019

  • I recently had a small surgery and couldn’t lift my son for two weeks. This travel bed allowed my son to walk in and out of bed for naps and bedtime so that I could rest and heal. It was a life saver! Sep 30, 2019

    Backpack strapping is convenient for travel, easy to set up. Haven't used front zipper but like feature for multipurpose use, lots of accessories available. Sep 20, 2019

  • It's light and easy and the backpack straps are the best. However, getting the velcro through all the little tabs can be a bit tedious. Sep 19, 2019

  • We have a small space and this has been perfect. We used the bassinet conversion kit when baby was born as well and loved how easy it is to breakdown and put back up! Sep 18, 2019

  • The bassinet kit was the perfect low-profile choice for baby when he was a newborn. The mattress was firm and yet comfy for baby. The regular travel crib is great to pop open in the living room. Sep 18, 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!
