Why Travel Cribs are Essential for Families Who Love Travel


Whether you’re traveling for a much needed vacation or just driving to the grandparents, you want a safe and comfortable place for your little one to sleep.

Relying on hotels, rental homes or friends to have a safe (and clean) crib available can be nerve racking.

When it comes to sleep, many parents end up finding a travel crib essential for any trip, crosstown or further, where bedtime is involved.

Tips for finding a crib that’s essential for travel:
Find a (Truly) Portable Travel Crib

Travel cribs that are heavy to carry, large when packed or just plain tough to set up or pack won’t make the shortlist when packing for your next trip. These cribs will end up gathering dust in your closet.

That’s why we designed the Lotus crib so you can set it up in less than a minute, carry easily at less than 13 lbs, and fold the Lotus down to about 50% the size of traditional travel cribs. You can also carry it hands-free as a backpack when you’re walking through the airport.

Look for Extra Safety Certifications

The point of getting a travel crib is to have a safe place for your little one to sleep. Every parent is going to have a different view of what contributes to safety, but we’d bet most parents want anything their little one sleeps in to be non-toxic, durable and breathable.

Call us overprotective, but there’s no “good enough” when it comes to our kids, so the Lotus is the only crib on the market that’s certified GreenGuard Gold. This certification means the Lotus is free of harmful chemicals like lead, phthalates and PVC while also having low emission.

Comfort Impacts Sleep Quality

Finally, a safe spot to sleep isn’t enough if your little one won’t sleep well. The lack of comfort can come from many factors, such as an overly stiff mattress, rough fabric or just a lack of familiarity with their sleep environment.

Parent’s rave about their little ones good sleep in the Lotus. The new, improved mattress is thicker and more plush while still being supportive. ClearView mesh guarantees your little one is able to breath well while also giving you great visibility.

Make it Fun Too

Functional is good, but fun is even better.

The Lotus boasts a zip-down side door that gives you access to nurse your infant to sleep or play with your toddler at their level. By being able to play in the crib at home, kids often feel more comfortable while traveling.
