Xander is only 3, though, and sometimes has a hard time keeping up. He often runs and runs and runs until his internal battery runs out! (Sound familiar, Moms?) Of course when he gets tired and needs a little recharge, the LAST place he wants to do it is in the house. Thankfully, we have an amazingly portable solution that allows our little man to take a nap without having to bring our party indoors.
The brand new BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light is easy to set-up, easy to take down, and even folds up into an attractive carrying case that looks a lot like a nice piece of luggage. It comes with a comfortable, rather luxurious mattress, and is suitable for children ages 0-3. Xander is 3 and a half, but my kids are a bit on the teeny side, so this still fits him quite well.

BABYBJÖRN STATEMENT RELATED TO FLAME RETARDANTSEnvironmental Science & Technology magazine reported in May 2011 that the foam found in many baby products (e.g., portable mattresses, baby carriers, changing table pads, etc.) contains chlorinated Tris, or other flame retardants. These chemicals, while legal to use in the US, are considered toxic.
This is not an issue for BABYBJÖRN products. Each of our products meets all safety requirements of the 2008 Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, including those related to flame resistance, and they also are certified to a rigorous, international standard (Oeko-Tex® Standard 100, Class I). This standard prohibits the use of flame retardant chemicals (e.g., Tris, PBB, TEPA, TCEP9, etc.) in products made for children.
In short, your child’s well-being is our first priority. You can use all BABYBJÖRN products with confidence, knowing that they are free from health-hazardous substances.
Crib fabric: Machine wash, warm (40°C). Do not tumble dry.
Mattress cover: Machine wash, hot (60°C).
Mattress: Do not machine wash.
Wash separately with a gentle, bleach-free detergent. The Travel Crib Light should be set up when you put the fabric back on.
Our Review of the BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light :
This crib features a very sturdy frame, mesh sidewalls, and a very comfortable mattress that folds up when not in use. (Fitted sheets are also available for this mattress on the BabyBjörn website.) Due to the unique nature of this travel crib, you should ONLY use the mattress provided in it.
It was very easy to assemble, and has absolutely no additional pieces that need to be snapped on. (MAJOR brownie points there! We seem to ALWAYS lose little pieces to things!)
