The best travel cribs are those that set up easily, are lightweight, and give your child a comfortable place to sleep or safely play. Look for solid mattresses that don’t bow or adequately pad a bar in the middle. Some options come with attachable bassinets; others are bassinet-sized for smaller infants. Travel cribs are a great option for use in your own house as an extra place to sleep or contain newly mobile babies, or as a crib replacement on the go. The most lightweight option is our best of the best, which weighs less than 13 pounds and sets up in less than 10 seconds instantly when removed from the carrying case. In general, it may make sense to spend more money on a lighter weight, easy to use travel crib if you plan on using it often.
