The crib itself is very easy to put together. The frame and the mattress simply unfold and then you slot each of the four legs in place. It takes seconds. To look at I don’t think you would even know that it is a travel crib, the style and size look like a normal crib.The crib fits neatly beside the bed as it is the width of an average bedside table, and baby is then level with the bed. There is a see-through mesh on the crib so you can lay in bed and see your baby in the crib.
Our baby slept very well in it. It has a bit of flexibility to it so that you can slightly rock it which was good for our new born! It can be used up to 6 months. We put a mosquito net over the top just to be on the safe side and rolled towels up alongside baby so she felt snug.
I already have a crib from my first child but I would be happy to use this crib all the time at home. It is sturdy and comfortable enough to be used daily with the added benefit that you can take it anywhere. At £80 it is extremely good value for money if used on a daily basis and as a travel cot. With our first child we always used the carry cot from our pushchair when away from home, which is not ideal and we were never really happy with.
I love this crib. It is easy to use, comfortable and portable. It means you can easily travel abroad, or just stay with friends or family for the night and not worry about whether your baby will be happy with new sleeping arrangements. It is definitely coming to America with us next week!
