I have operated a home childcare for 38 years, had 6 of my own children and have 3 grandchildren, one is 4mo.and another on the way in a few months. I have gone htrough many pak and plays, play pens, cribs, cradles and bassinets over the years. I purchased 2 of these a few months ago for my business to replace worn pak and plays and am very pleased. Although these can be found in brighter colors I really like the more neutral colors. I am planning to buy another so that my daughter can have an extra crib to have at their home for ther new baby in their room the 1st few months of middle of the night feedings. It folds so easily that they can also use it as a napping spot down in the family room.
I found the travel lite cribs to be very easy to set up, well built, sturdy and attractive enough to have set up in my living room or wheel it out of the way or fold it up when my business hours are over. I appreciate the fact that while using it as a bassinet in the elevated position I can tend to the newborns without having to stoop and bend over to reach the baby. The suspended position is very secure. As the babies grow I can lower the floor of the bassinet to the bottom of the crib and will have a pac and play as tall as all others but it will not take up as much floor space. Just pop in a quilted pad and crib sheet and baby snoozes, Actually I frequently just use a folded and tucked in full size flannel top sheet (the bottom ones always wear out first and get tossed) . The travel lite folds up quickly and compactly into it's storage bag and is lightweight and easy to carry. My son-in- law borrowed one and used it as his one carry on when flying to visit his family over the holidays. When their flight was laid over at an airport, they just popped it out and the baby had a comfy place to sleep in the airport waiting area. They then also had a place for baby at the other grandparents. I,m sure that we'll appreciate the cribs portability this summer when we do family camping with the babies. I hope this info helps you in your decision.
Pros:My review says it all.
Cons: Honestly I can't think of a thing that I disliked
