Some babies will sleep anywhere. Others may need some extra coddling if your family’s away from home. Luckily, there’s an ultra-portable playard that doesn’t skimp on features, keeping baby comfortable and safe anywhere you go.

WHAT WE LOVE

  • A zippered side panel allows you to get right in there to soothe or play with baby without having to reach down into the playard
  • At 13 pounds, it’s a whole 20 pounds lighter than some other tricked-out playards. It even packs into a travel backpack
  • Worried about setup? All you have to do is unfold the mattress, extend the legs and pull out the sides
  • Made entirely of mesh, it’s easy to keep an eye on baby

SUMMARY

Smartly designed and so portable, the Lotus is a perennial favorite among parents.
