Looking for an alternative to the traditional playard?

The Pack n Play™, Nuna™, 4Moms™, and other traditional-style playards use a common design with a raised mattress. The highly rated Lotus Travel Crib has a mattress that rests on the floor instead making it lighter for you to carry, fold down 50% smaller, and be more portable.
