A must have for new moms.....forget the pack n' play!!
June 17, 2011
I came across this item a few weeks ago when researching travel beds for my 13 month old. We are going on vacation soon, and I didn't want to check our pack n play on the plane and drag it through the airport. What interested me the most about this product was that it was stored in a back pack and inflated itself. I decided to throw caution to the wind and try this out for myself. I bought this and received it rather quickly & was anxious to use it for a weekend getaway before our big trip. I was surprised at how compact this thing is! I carefully took it out and within 5 minutes had the whole thing set up. I took it down and had it all packed away in another five minutes. This thing is sturdy, yet easy to pick up and move around. We took it on our weekend trip, and my son fell fast asleep in it with no problems. THere is a zipper door for them to crawl in and out of, but I never unzipped it. I just laid him down in it like I would a crib. I had it blown up for 6 days and checked the pressure and it was fine each time. I have been a mom for almost 6 years, and I sure wish they would have had this when I had my first baby. This is ten times better than a pack and play, and after having 3 kids I can honestly say a pack n play has no greater function than this product. This product does the same exact thing, but it also does one thing that the pack n play doesn't. It fits compactly in a back pack. If you are a parent and have ever made a little trip, you know hauling all the baby stuff is a pain. I LOVE that we can just grab the back pack and go. There is a reason these are sold out. Simply an amazing product. If you are considering, just buy it, you will LOVE it!!
Pros:Easily stores in back pack.
Easy set up, easy take down.
My son slept fine in it, no problems at all!
Cons:If I had to stretch, there are only 2 things that could be improved. One, I never have been able to get the crib back in the backpack as tight as it was when I opened it. I think it will just take practice. Two, there is no crib sheet that you can buy to fit. I made my own and it works great. I heard Guava was working on a sheet for this product.
