When you are traveling with your baby, travel cribs make a convenient
alternative to regular cribs. They fold up into a compact package which can
be easily stored in the trunk of your car. When you arrive at your
destination, they unfold in a few quick steps and voila you have a
comfortable baby travel bed.
Portable cribs also make great play yards for small infants and they are
light enough that you can take them with you almost anywhere you go.
You should exercise a bit of caution, though, when you are buying a portable
bed for your baby. Older models have a locking mechanism that can come
undone, making an unsafe V-shape that can trap babies necks.
Newer models of portable cribs have addressed this problem, but the bottom
line is you should never leave your baby in a travel crib when the sides are
collapsed. It's also a good idea to avoid using secondhand cribs -- the
older models have caused several deaths so taking a chance is just not worth
Safe and modern portable cribs have fine mesh sides that prevent objects
from getting stuck in them. They provide comfortable airflow while baby is
sleeping and also allow you to see baby at all times.
If you are traveling with your baby, don't forget other necessary baby
travel items such as
baby travel stroller systems. These make it convenient to get around
when you arrive at your destination and are light enough and portable enough
to be taken anywhere.
Another baby travel product you should always have close at hand is a
baby travel bag and changer. These roomy bags have several compartments
for all kinds of necessities such as diapers, toys, formula, and extra
clothes. There's also space for carrying Momâ€™s keys and money.
Always check baby travel accessories to make sure they are safe for your
baby. Modern baby products are usually quite well designed to provide
entertainment for your baby and peace of mind for you.
