8 thoughts on “10 Best Portable Cribs

    We used the Graco Pack N Play a lot for travel, nap time, etc. I’m glad to see a lot of other portable options as well. I own a company that manufactures sheets for the Pack N Play. During my research on design, I compiled some safety information when using portable cribs for travel:

    * Make sure portacrib and playard sheets fit snugly on mattress and overlap the mattress so it cannot be dislodged by pulling on the corner of the sheet. (Check out our No-Slip Playard Sheets – take one with you when you travel!)
    * Never use an adult sheet on a portacrib or playard mattress; it can come loose and present an entanglement hazard to young children.
    * Place a baby on his/her back on a firm, tight-fitting mattress in a crib meeting current safety standards.
    * Remove pillows, quilts, comforters, and sheepskins from the crib.

    To read more about safety and to view my sheets for the playard:

    #7 is the one Aurora has slept in since we moved her out of the cradle!!! She loves her “tent”.

    I can’t believe this list didn’t include Guava Family’s “Go Crib”. It’s super-light, inflatable, and you carry it in a backpack. We have it and we love it – it travels everywhere with us!

    I also can’t believe they didn’t include the GoCrib or the PeaPod. They have 2 cribs that aren’t even portable and 3 Pack and Plays that are essentially the same. Come on Babble, we expect better than this. A little more research would have been nice. For what it’s worth, we love our GoCrib.

    How about a mattress topper? They make the mattress for playards tso uncomfortable. My mother-in-law bough us a mattress topper from It folds in 3 and you can wash the cover.
