The baby travel crib that raises the bar for all other travel cribs

I finally get the baby travel crib thing. My first baby had a play yard which was great for storing all kinds of new baby gifts, diapers, blankets–you get the idea. We didn’t bring it out at all with my second child, giving it away soon after she was born. Then came number three. And that’s when I realized what I had been missing.

The Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light is the easiest-to-put-together piece of baby gear I have ever seen. Ever. It is the answer to my oh-my-goodness-I-need-to-put-this-baby-down-somewhere-safe-for-five-minutes so-he-won’t-eat-electrical-cords-while-I-cut-carrot-sticks-for-my-big-kids woes.

Let me put it to you this way: when I pulled it out of the box, lifted it out of the storage bag, looked for instructions, and didn’t find them. I put the crib together in less than a minute, anyway. No kidding.

It’s just as easy to fold up, too. In fact, it’s so incredibly simple to use that I actually try to demonstrate this thing every time people come over. Overkill, maybe, but it’s just that awesome.

Plus, it looks really good. No gaudy prints or ugly colors that will make you regret the purchase when it’s smack in the middle o your living room for a month. Just simple, clean lines and décor-friendly colors. I particularly love the silver, but there’s a new black option that’s just come out, too.

Stylish, unobtrusive, easy to use and convenient. What more could a parent ask for? Well, okay, other than that elusive extra set of hands, I mean.

Find the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light online at Baby Bjorn, or from your local baby gear boutique. And thanks to the company for providing one to CMP for review.

    It’s nice but is the most expensive option on the market – nearly triple what I paid for a standard Graco Pack n’ Play.

    Yes, it is the MOST expensive but so worth it. My sons are 5 and 2 and I have used it since my oldest was two years old. We have lived in Africa and South American and travel to Florida and Holland to visit family often. Also, while living in Africa we traveled between Mozambique and South Africa (for IVF) more times than I care to remember and I don’t know what we would have done without this crib….it is so light and easy to put up and take down. I think my 5 year old can do it. We have a regular pack and play at home but we NEVER NEVER use it. I totally recommend…my two year old is sleeping in it as I type this comment…we are traveling in Holland at the moment. For a family on the go it is the BEST and i think only option.
