Are looking for the best portable toddler bed? Do you want a travel baby bed that will last a long time and fit any toddler? We wanted something that wouldn’t need to be replaced as soon as our kid grew just a little! So here we will go through what we wanted and what we did.
We wanted a portable toddler bed or toddler travel bed, that would allow us to feel safe. Safe about our child throughout the night and give us some peace of mind, while traveling on vacations. When we looked online for a portable cribs for toddlers. We wanted something that was lightweight, easy to set up. We could have for a while, and not have to swap out after 3 weeks.
First off, my family is scattered around the country, so we travel a few times a year to visits. Sometimes we stay in hotels and sometimes we stay with those we visit. Therefor we wanted a travel baby bed that would fit both besides a sleeping couch, or a bed.
Cots for babies
Your child might be sleeping in a cot, or maybe haven’t started with it yet. Either way portable cots are great(at least we think so). Here is some reasons why you should consider a portable cot, for your portable baby bed.
- Your child will sleep more peacefully, and not get as much disturbed.
When your child sleeps in kids cots, it will be able to sleep more peacefully. He/She have a better chance of getting a night of undisturbed sleep. When your child sleeps with you in the same bed, it will feel all your movement. All that movement can disturb your child’s sleep and wake him/her up. Which means you have to wake up to get him/her back to sleep
2. There is no danger of your child rolling out of the bed.
There isn’t so much to say about this, the bars help ensure that your child stays in bed. But it could also be a place to place your child when you need to go to the toilet. God know we have used it for that. It gives great comfort at night, and a quick relief when needed at day. A cots for babies will help you ensure your baby sleeps safely. Without the risk of waking them up by your movement or rolling over them. Please remember kid cots safety!
It is very important that your child sleeps on his/her back in the portable cot, or any other kids cots. This helps with avoiding the danger of sudden infant death syndrome. This matters to all types of bed, and its important that you as a parent remembers and pays attention to it when your child sleeps in a cot or any type of bed.
Here is a recommendation on a portable cotLotus Travel Crib – Backpack Portable, Lightweight, Easy to Pack Play-Yard with Comfortable Mattress – Certified Baby Safe
This portable toddler bed might not be the biggest, but it should be enough for a while. Its 45.5 x 31.5 x 25.5 inches and only weighs 11 pounds., the commercial states that it should be fit until your child is 3 years old. It can be used as a play crib and travel baby bed, so it’s a two for one. And it is easy to set up, which is a big deal. Many of the reviews on this was torn between BabyBjorn and this, and I can’t find a single comment that was not happy about choosing this.
Another recommendation for a portable bedMilliard Portable Toddler Travel Nap Mat, Folding Soft Foam Mat with Bumpers
Ok full disclosure we haven’t tried this ourselves, but got it recommended, and after reading the reviews I feel confident about recommending it onward.
This portable baby bed looks like it is comfortable to sleep in, and it’s a great size for most kids at 55-Inchx26-Inchx7-Inch when open and it goes down to 25 x 14,5 x 27 inch when folded for transport. For those times when an accident happen it is even included a washable sheet for this bed with every order! The material is also washable and easy to take of the bed, the madras within should be of no issue since the covers are water proof. There are no guidance for how to fold it up, but it is a straight forward process most will figure out without a problem. Since it is foam and not one of those inflatable beds, this wont make much noise either and that’s a big plus!
So these two beds get a recommendation from us, do you agree with us or disagree? Please comment what you think about our recommendations for toddler travel bed?
