Favorite baby product. Baby sept in it right next to my bed for nine months. Bring axle to use all three heights as she grew was great and def helped save my back. Swapping to the later stages is super easy. Found that changing cover sizes sheets worked well.

Great as a bassinet

Great for newborns and small babies. My baby very quickly became too long for it and wouldn’t sleep in it. It was slim enough to fit between our bed and the wall.

Perfect for small spaces
April 16, 2020
Bought this travel crib to use in our master bedroom that has limited space. I love the canopy because it helps shield baby from drafts from our air vents so she doesn't get awakened. My baby seems to love it, it's fairly soft but provides support. We have not used it for traveling, but I imagine it will be easy to travel with since it is easy to put together/breakdown when necessary.
Best Uses
  • This crib is best for small spaces as well as if you travel often. It's easy to put together/break down compared to other playpen styles we've tried.

Great crib for twins
February 19, 2020
I needed to find some pack and play/cribs for when I babysit for my twin grand babies that would not have a huge footprint but, still be roomy and last them through to toddlerhood. I ordered 2 of these and they are exactly what I needed to meet my needs. The quality was amazing for the price and they were delivered very quickly in perfect condition. They fit well in our guest room and I am still able to use the room if I have someone stay over without folding them up.

Perfect size! Set up was easy! Nice change to the typical bassinet that they outgrow in just a few short months. I can take this on vacation when my son gets older and it won’t take up my whole car. Sheets were hard to find but a king size pillow case or changer table cover work perfect.

I love how quick Albee baby shipping is! Ordered the Graco Travel Lite crib Is color “Ballard” just a few days ago and it arrived this afternoon! I set up the crib, which was a breeze and assembled the “stage 1” portion. Fits perfectly in the small area I need to use it. I wasn’t too sure about the color from the photos online, but in person I love it! So happy with my purchase!!

I got an awesome deal on this during the July 4th sale and it arrived at my house in three days, so very quickly! It was very easy to assemble and I love the color. My favorite part is it’s small size compared to my standard size pack n play. This fits easily through doorways which I love because I plan on using this in multiple rooms throughout the day. Baby isn’t here yet but hopefully she likes it as much as I do!
