Best Travel Cribs of 2020
To get the best travel cribs, here are some things to take care of:
Are cribs comfortable?
When buying a travel crib, you need to make sure that it is comfortable. After all, you want your baby to have a good night’s sleep. Check and see how soft the mattress is and if it has enough padding or not. Make sure the crib has enough space and it offers air circulation. Options with canopies and toy rails aren’t that important; however, they might make the crib more comfortable and fun for your child. However, do make sure to see if these extra features help in making the crib more comfortable or are they just adding extra weight instead. Also, make sure to check how much space is available between the sides, and if the mattress provides ventilation. Also, see if the sheets are fitted around the mattress. All these factors will tell you how comfortable the crib actually is.

Do you have the right-sized one?
You need to make sure that the crib isn’t just comfortable for your child but is also comfortable for you to carry around. You want a travel crib that can be easily transported. Any option that is similar to the cot that you use at home isn’t worth the purchase. See how easily you can carry it around, if it lightweight and compact with a smaller size, yet if it can be opened up to provide a big space enough for the baby to be comfortable. Travel cribs with additional accessories such as wheels or a carry bag are only a good option if they do not hinder the portability of the crib.
What material is used to make it?
The material used in the crib is something that you should not ignore when making your purchase. The material used should not increase the weight of the crib, making it difficult to travel with. The fabric used should provide your child with comfort, especially if you live in an area with extreme temperature.
Make sure that the material is breathable and allows air circulation so that your baby doesn’t sweat too much. Also check and see if the fabric is hypoallergenic, especially if your baby has any allergies. This way, you’ll be sure that your baby is sleeping comfortably.
Many cribs are made using high-grade nylon along with a breathable mesh. This combination of fabric can withstand your child’s movement along with the bump and knocks experienced by travel.
How durable is the option?
Make sure that your chosen travel cribs and is lightweight, durable and hard-wearing. A travel crib usually lasts until your baby grows up into a toddler; therefore, it needs to be durable enough so that it can be carried around. The crib also needs to be sturdy enough that it can withstand the constant opening and closing over the years of being used. Check whether there are any gaps in the crib from where your kid can get out. Make sure that your chosen crib is sturdy enough and that it doesn’t get knocked over if your kid moves around. Some travel cribs that provide you with sturdiness come with points where you can tie them down, making them more secure.
