And the Winner Is: Guava Lotus Everywhere Travel Crib

You spend so much time making sure baby has a safe sleep space at home—but what about when you and baby are on the go? Whether you’re heading out on a weekend getaway or jetting off for a family vacation, baby is going to need somewhere to sleep, and you’re going to need a solution that doesn’t weigh a ton or take a million years to set up. Which is why we love the Guava Lotus Everywhere—now named as a Best of Baby winner for three years running. It’s lightweight, it’s portable, it’s easy to set up and keeps baby comfy.

What We Love

  • At 13 pounds, it’s among the lightest travel cribs out there; plus, it folds up into a compact backpack carrying case that can fit into most overhead plane compartments
  • Setting up the Lotus requires all of 15 seconds—but thanks to the locking leg hinges, the design doesn’t skimp on stability
  • Mesh walls let you keep an eye on your little one, and the side-zipper door means you’re able to nurse or cuddle baby to sleep; it’s an extra-appealing feature for short parents who struggle to place baby in and out of other tall playards
  • The foam mattress pad is thick and comfy for newborns and toddlers alike and comes with a waterproof cover; it’s the only playard that’s GreenGuard Gold certified for safety, meaning low VOCs and no phthalates, PVC, heavy metals and other nasty chemicals
