Confession: I run a travel website, and even I find the thought of hitting the road with my ever-curious toddler, well, daunting. Lucky for me, my job affords me the chance to put all sorts of purported Sanity-Saving devices to the test. Here are my two picks for soothing those tykes to sleep:
The Gold Standard
The BABYBJÖRN Travel Crib Light has been my go-to travel crib for the past year. So handy dandy it can be assembled in less than 30 seconds (Yes – 30 seconds! Just call me MacGuyver-Mommy) it comes complete with a plush mattress sure to keep your tyke snug. For those parents looking for portability and comfort, nothing beats this puppy.
Go Go Gadget Crib
Then along came the GoCrib, the latest and greatest portable crib from the geniuses over at Guava Family. In one word: awesome. This 7-pound wonder folds into a lightweight backpack that easily slides into an overhead airplane compartment (take that, Airline check-in luggage fees!). Bonus: this bad boy morphs into a mini play center, with the sides zipping down to give your toddler a taste of freedom, and can be set up and broken down in less than five minutes.
