Guava Family’s Lotus Everywhere Crib is getting rave reviews from parent travelers. It’s light, extremely portable, and sets up in 15 seconds (no joke!). When packed, it converts to a backpack that qualifies as a carry-on (for most airlines), so it’s great for airport layovers.
The Graco Pack and Play Portable Playard is more affordable and also a great option for families on the go. The push-button fold makes it quick and easy to set it up. It packs away neatly and comes with a carry case.
Why we love these products: There's a side door on the Lotus that can be zipped and secured, improving the “crib” experience for your child. It’s also great for when you want to soothe your child to sleep but don’t want to hang over the railing. The Graco is great value for the money and will last for years.
Best for: Hotels, air travel, road trips, camping, sleepovers.
