One thing you are going to need as a new mom is a travel crib. We have used ours on so many different occasions that it easily paid for itself within the first few months. There were two things that were hard about it, the amount of room it took up and the weight. I recently had the opportunity to try out the BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light which, I believe, should be on every mother’s wish list.
This crib is so simple that it comes already assembled. I remember my husband getting frustrated putting together our other travel crib. The BabyBjorn Travel Light Crib was ready to go as soon as I pulled it out of the box! The crib only weighs 11 pounds which makes it super easy to carry upstairs or lug along in a big hotel. It comes with it’s own carrying case that it conveniently folds into. The BabyBjorn Travel Light Crib, when folded and in it’s case, looks like you are carrying a bag. You can put it over your shoulder and hit the road!
The other part of our last travel crib that was tricky was putting it up and taking it down. After a few times, we got the hang of it, but it was always hard for others to operate it. The BabyBjorn Travel Light Crib can be opened in basically one movement. I was able to set it up by myself as soon as I opened the box. The travel crib was literally out of the box and set up in our living room in about 5 minutes!
Parents are also going to love that the fabric is completely machine washable (mattress cover and bed fabric). Honestly, I don’t know why a company would manufacture a baby product that is not machine washable! It just makes sense. The mattress pad is nice and thick which makes it comfy for babies. The BabyBjorn Travel Light Crib is available in Blue and Silver (Silver is not available in Canada) and retails for about $279.99. This crib is great for newborns all the way up to about 3 years old.
