If you’re considering getting the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light…Consider no more! It is a must-have for anybody with children up to 3 years old.  When I told my friends I was trying this relatively new product out, the first question they ALL asked was, “What makes it better than a pack and play?”  As an owner of both the pack and play and Baby Bjorn, let me tell you why I prefer the Travel Crib Light for sleeping:

1) It’s lighter – and I mean a lot lighter.  I can easily carry the baby and this crib without making offensive grunting noises.


2) It is smaller and more portable

3) Because of its unique design, it’s cozier for sleeping 

4) It’s so easy to set up and break down, even Reesie can do it in under 30 seconds!



5) The mattress is incredibly comfortable – Reese used to sleep in a pack and play at my moms when she watches her during the week and would nap for 45 minutes at a time.  Since we’ve switched to the travel crib…1.5 hours!  Not kidding.

Also to add to the comfort level, the Bjorn organic fitted sheet is really soft and nice and adds a serious layer of luxuriousness.  The queen approves!

6) Reese just likes it better all around!!!  She actually asks to go in!  

All and all for the above reasons the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light is my choice for sleeping for Reese on the go.  The pack and play is great for it’s own reasons, like the high height setting for changing really small babies, or using it as a playpen.  However, for sleeping, there’s no comparison.  We won’t leave home without it!

Thanks Baby Bjorn for sending me this to try out 🙂

With Love,

    This design looks beautiful. The fact that it’s light weight is a major bonus. I think today’s Mom’s have enough heavy things to carry around for babies these days. A safe place for baby to sleep when travelling. Is there going to be a contest to win one? That would be awesome. I’d have a travel bed to go with my travel mug and drinking cup I just won.
