The lotus travel crib is more than a travel crib. It’s an EVERYWHERE crib. So light. So portable. It sets up in 15 seconds. Use it everywhere, everyday. At Home. At friends’ for dinner. At a playgroup. Across town. In the airport. Across the world.
I love this portable baby playard. It is so lightweight and portable as well as being surprisingly easy to assemble and disassemble. I not only take it traveling I also take it to the park, outside, and I even use it inside the house. It is perfect and doesn’t take up a lot of space. It is stylish and sleek looking the design of it is creative and innovative. The door on the side of it makes it so easy to slip a sleepy baby into bed without too much jostling and it is a lot easier to keep him asleep because you don’t have to try and lower him gently into the bottom.
When traveling, this counts as a carry on. This is huge especially if you have a layover. I also like the mesh sides because it removes the risk of suffocation. Because this is a travel crib the mattress that comes with it is actually surprisingly comfortable. I have had other portable playards in the past that I have needed to buy extra padding or a new mattress for but I did not need to or this one which makes me happy.
Of course the obvious downfall is the price. A whopping two hundred dollars seems like a lot to pay for a baby playard. I justified it by realizing how much use this would get in our family because of how often we travel. It honestly has already paid for itself a couple times over. I also don’t like how many velcro tabs you have to secure to attach the mattress. It is not a difficult task but it is slightly tedious.
I definitely think this is one of the better portable baby playards out there. I have seen other ones that are bulkier and harder to put together and it makes me glad that I splurged a little bit and bought this one. My son loves it, I love it, my husband loves it and I’m sure the next child will love it as well. If you are looking for a nice looking, high quality, convenient playard, the lotus travel crib and portable baby playard is the one to get.
