Traveling with children can be quite the production. It gets exponentially more complicated when you have children at different stages. We traveled to Florida this summer for a family reunion with a 3 year old and 4 month old. We are so used to all the baby gear we have at home, it was tough to figure out what we could actually pack and fly with us!
I knew we would need a travel crib to go with us. I didn’t want to have to go to sleep with the kids (I wanted to be up and actually have some adult conversation) so Baby Brother would need a place to sleep. So many playards are quite large, cumbersome, and heavy for air travel. I was SUPER excited when I was provided with the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light 2 to review on our trip!
Just like everything else from Baby Bjorn, there are no flashing lights or annoying sounds. Just innovative, simple, design. The Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light 2 is super light (weighing just 11 lbs) and easy to set up. The case has a handle which makes it super easy to carry. Folded in bag it is just 19 x 24 x 6 in. It would easily work as a carry on if needed. We were able to actually pack it into one of our suitcases for the trip!
I was astonished as to just how easy set up was. It just takes one simple movement and you are all set. Here is a video from Baby Bjorn of how to set up the Travel Light Crib 2.
Another great feature of the Travel Light Crib 2 is that everything fits right back into the carrying bag, including the mattress!! TThe mattress is thick and comfy unlike the hard board feeling from traditional playards. The mattress has a built in base which keeps the crib standing firmly. Additionally, the inward sloping sides create a snug cozy feeling for your little one.
Even more great features include that the BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light 2 can be used from newborn to approximately three years old which means you will get plenty of use out of this great product. The fabric easily unzips and is machine washable which is definitely a perk you aren’t going to find in many traditional pack n plays. And it’s available in a few different colors.
