How to Choose A Travel Bed for Your Baby
With a fine-quality travel bed, your baby can sleep and rest in a familiar environment away from home. Make sure to choose a travel cot that is easy to transport and use, brings a high level of comfort to your child, easy to clean and sanitize, and most of all – secure enough to give you peace of mind.
The best travel cot for your baby will depend on your needs, how often you travel, and the features that you want. Nevertheless, there are a few pointers that you should take into consideration when purchasing a travel bed. Here they are:
Convenience and ease of use
You most likely have a lot in your luggage already, most of which is your baby’s stuff! You know how inconvenient it can be to travel with huge bulky things. So the first thing to consider is whether the travel bed is easy to carry and transport. Travel beds come in various styles. Some beds fold to look much like a portable crib, while others fold into a mini cocoon or tent. Choose the one that’s lightweight, easy to set up, and compact that you can fit it into your suitcase/luggage or in the trunk of your car.
Safety and comfort
The other thing you should prioritize is making sure that the bed is comfortable. Some travel cots have very thin mattresses while others have poor air flow. Examine the materials used. The bed should be soft yet firm enough for optimal support and comfort. Also, can it be washed! When needs must, can you give is a quick sponge down or do parts easily come off to be washed?
Age and size
Some travel beds are suitable for newborns, some are not. Some can accommodate larger toddlers and even pre-school children while others are limited to certain age range. Just because it is big doesn’t mean it’s the best. Always check if the travel bed you’re purchasing is appropriate for your child’s age and size.
Indoors or outdoors
Is this purchase for hotel and house stays only, or are you looking for something versatile that you can also take camping or out to the park with you as well?！
Modern travel beds offer additional features for a more fun and comfortable journey. For instance, some travel beds are designed to double up as playpens and others come with a flip-over changing unit. It’s better if it has a carry-bag or wheels (if applicable) so transporting and positioning the bed is easier. Meanwhile, fabric covers that are machine-washable help keep the bed clean.
