Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't live without it Quite impressively engineered -- the instant one-handed set-up of this crib is a great party trick; it literally just pops open like magic. Folding it (correctly, so the legs are aligned right, since we're quite type a) takes a little practice but is totally doable once you learn the fold... overall it's amazing that something this sturdy packs into such a small, light, portable package. We've flown with it twice and it fits easily in the overhead bin of a plane (like a rolling suitcase would) perfectly with room to spare. At 9 months pregnant I can carry it myself and fold/unfold it easily. It's way better than a pack-n-play because it essentially sits directly on the floor, so there are no awkward bars digging into baby's back -- seems more healthful for sleeping to me. Also, this means there is no weight limit. I've actually climbed in to try it out. The Baby Bjorn sheets are a little pricy but fit perfectly and are super soft (we just store them right inside the nice carrying case along with the crib when not in use so we always have them). A couple of slightly awkward things: you essentially have to do a toe-touch to put baby in and out of this (because mattress is floor-level) so laying a heavier sleeping baby down is a little tough. Also, because the bottom footprint is wider than the top railings (which does make it more stable) you have to be careful not to trip over the legs or stub your toes. We're using this as travel crib, pack-n-play, co-sleeper... it's an absolute essential, and totally worth the price (esp. if you use it to replace pack-n-play). It's one of the most high-quality baby items I've ever seen; if the general plastic crappiness of most pack-n-plays and other baby gear turns you off, you'll be most pleasantly surprised by this travel crib.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Travel Crib This thing is amazing. It folds up and down so easily and it's SO light. For traveling, nothing can touch it. If you live in a small space, it's so easy to set up and break down so you don't need to leave it out. June 4, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Totally worth the money This is not only the best looking travel crib on the market it's probably the easiest to assemble. It's extraordinarily well engineered. I bring it on playdates and have her nap at friend's houses. It's traveled east, west and a few places in between. The case has held up well through it all. Make sure to purchase some mattress covers as they don't come with. May 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than a pack-and-play We use this when we travel (checked luggage on the plane) and also at home when our baby is having sleep troubles and needs to sleep/nap in our room. I really like this travel crib. It's not heavy. Putting it up is super simple and fast. Folding it back down takes a little practice but that's no big deal. We store it under the crib and it's as small as a small suitcase. This was one of our best purchases so far. We bought it at a discount but I think it's worth full price. May 24, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE this travel crib! I LOVE this travel crib! It is so light and easy to use. SO much better than a Pack n' Play! We have used this for kids visiting our house as well as traveled with it. It fits inside a duffel bag for air travel, which makes it super easy to travel with. Also super simple to put up and take down. I can't say enough good things about this crib. Well worth the money! May 21, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Very light! We love our travel crib. It is very eary to set up and break down. December 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 Useful So far so good. Have taken it to my sister's and my mother's. About to travel abroad to Europe with it for the holidays and may update my review after. The baby sleeps well in it. It opens and closes super easy and is like a very large brief case to carry - so that is all very good. When it is open the legs stick out a little and we have stubbed our toes on it a million times - so watch out. Also, you could really strain your back lowering your child down into it so be careful. December 12, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 lightweight and easy! We have loved our BB Travel Lite. It's so lite and takes up much less space than a normal pack/play. It's a cinch to set up and fold up. A great investment. December 11, 2012

newborn use?

Q: 
I am looking for something that a newborn can sleep in - that is easy to get them in and out of for nighttime feedings. I see the 4Moms option has a bassinet attachment that lies on the top of the crib and seems super convienent. Does the BabyBjorn not have something like this?

A: 
If you're looking for a travel crib with a bassinet attachment, consider Aprica Haven, Nuna Sena or 4Moms Breeze (BabyBjorn's Travel Crib Light 2 does quite a bit, but it doesn't have a bassinet attachment).

All three are equipped with a bassinet-mode feature that elevates the mattress for a newborn up to 15lbs to easily access the baby. After 15lbs, simply remove the bassinet-mode feature and lower the mattress to the travel crib's “floor” for play and sleep.

The Travel Crib Light is approved by the ASTM for use as a permanent crib, so you can use it as long as you need until you move to a full size crib. It has a thick, breathable foam mattress which will be perfect for a newborn.

Weight limit?

Q: 
What is the weight limit for this product? A Graco Pack N Play has a weight limit of only 30 lbs and we're looking for something that will accommodate an infant in the 90% percentile (21 lbs at 8 months) into her toddler years.

We love the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light as a travel crib/playard option for the following reasons:

1) The stable design keeps the crib firmly on the floor so you don’t have to worry about tipping, and, as a result, Travel Crib Light 2 has a maximum height limit of 35", but no maximum weight limit.
2) Insulated, formaldahyde-free mattress with a water-repellent, breathable mattress cover for the most comfortable, healthy sleep for baby (100% organic cotton fitted sheets sold separately). And, measuring 24"W x 41"L, it's perfect for kids who are taller.
3) Soft fabric-covered edges make it cozy for your child, and all fabric parts have been approved through the Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
4) Lightweight (just 11lbs) and easy for anybody to fold and carry (one-step set-up, and comes with a carrying case).

A: 
BabyBjorn's Travel Crib Light is our most comfortable travel crib, with a thick, firm, foam mattress and sturdy structure. It's perfect for parents who want the closest thing to a real crib for on-the-road comfort, and must be checked separately, but comes in its own travel case. Travel Crib Light's dImensions folded are 24 x 19.6 x 5.6 in, and the weight is 11 lbs.

If you're looking for a travel bed to pack into your suitcase, consider Kidco's Peapod Plus. The Peapod Plus travel bed folds compactly and pops open easily, perfect for naps on the go! It's great for the park or beach, and it's comfortable enough to be used for sleepovers. The Peapod Plus can be used up to six years, a great investment for the long run, and it weighs less than 7 pounds, so it's made to go where you go!

At giggle, we offer a best of/edited assortment. In other words, we carry a limited number of options in any category to help make choices less overwhelming for our parents!

While "Pack 'n Play" is a specific term for Graco playards, people often use it in reference to travel cribs, which are similar in style. That being said, there are tons of options out there! Pack 'n Plays are awesome, but we love the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light as a travel crib/playard option for the following reasons:

1) Lightweight (just 11lbs) and easy for anybody to fold and carry (one-step set-up, and comes with a carrying case).
2) Stable design keeps the crib firmly on the floor so you don’t have to worry about tipping.
3) Soft fabric-covered edges make it cozy for your child, and all fabric parts have been approved through the Oeko-Tex Standard 100.
4) Insulated, formaldahyde-free mattress with a water-repellent, breathable mattress cover for the most comfortable, healthy sleep for baby (100% organic cotton fitted sheets sold separately)

Hope that helps understand why the Travel Crib Light is our "best of" pick for a playard!

Q: 
We're expecting our first child at the end of June. I'm debating whether to buy the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib or the KidCo PeaPod (I believe some of the PeaPod models accommodate kids up to 3 yrs old, just like the Travel Crib). We don't expect to do a ton of traveling in our son's first year or two, but most of the traveling we do will likely be by air, which seems to make the PeaPod a better choice. The PeaPod also offers shade and bug protection if we wanted to take it to the park or the beach. That said, I could see the Travel Crib being useful as a playpen substitute in our apartment. Which would you recommend? Are there reasons to buy both? Thanks.

A: 
Wow, you’ve clearly done your research, because you’ve described them both perfectly! It’s kind of a tradeoff: parents adore the Peapod when they’re on the road because it’s so lightweight and portable. But if you think you’ll use the Baby Bjorn a lot at home as a playpen, and don’t mind the extra weight when you do travel, then you’ll get a ton of use out of it. You don’t really need to buy both, but if you decide on the Baby Bjorn, the Peapod is inexpensive enough that you could always add it into the mix later if you find you’ll be traveling more than you thought. Good luck with your decision. Hope this helps!
