Best Pack n Play for Travel 2016 review

When travelling parents are looking for convenience since carrying along a baby or a toddler is already hard. Traveling can be a huge disappointment instead of having a relaxing getaway when you don’t have the proper equipment to put your child at ease and comfort. So here I have listed 5 of the best Pack n play for travel.

  • Lotus Travel Crib and Portable baby Playard

One of the great thing I like about this product is that it only takes as little as 15 secs to set it up. It is very convenient to use. Easy to set up, easy to fold and easy to store. it is very lightweight and really portable. It is stored inside a backpack that you can carry around cause it only weighs about 13 lbs.

Second thing I love from this product is that it has this zippered door found that the sides. Kids find it really cool and fun to play around. This crib also has a top mattress that is perfect for toddlers to take a nap. Since this crib has no weight limit, you can use it for as long as you want to.

Third thing I like about this model is that it is small enough to be carried on board a plane as a hand luggage and it chemical free.

Some disadvantage of this item that I found is that it is a bit hard to fasten the Velcro strip since you need to put it in the right position.

If you are a frequent air traveler, this one will suit you best. [Read more…]

Toddler travel bed for airplane

For parents who travels with kids, we know for a fact that flying with kids on a long haul is more of a trial. Of course if you have the money, you can always go for the first class and enjoy the benefit of having a long flat bed. But for most of us, we should be contented with the economy class and make the best of what we can afford. Before parents were allowed to let their child sleep on the floor of the plane but for safety of the kids, almost all flights did not allow that anymore. One recommendation they allow is for parents to bring a child seat. Toddlers should and must be in the seat and buckled properly all the time just in case of sudden air turbulence that might jeopardize their safety.

Having a growing toddler is hard especially if they can no longer fit into the airplane bassinet, this means that parents gets lesser sleep during travel. Being always on the go, I am truly thankful that I have found this new item for sale in the market. This is the 1st class Kid Travel Pillow. This inflatable pillow, is very handy, it fills the gap in the legroom of the plane. By placing this pillow there, you instantly turn the economy class seat into a convenient flat bed.

When this item is deflated, it fits conveniently into a hand carried luggage. To inflate the pillow, all you have to do is use the overhead air vent or you can do it manually by blowing through it with your mouth. Some aircrafts allow the use of the air vent but its better if you ask for permission.

Before heading to the airport better be sure to check that you can easily pull the inflation valve easily cause they sometimes get to stuck up. A little blast of hot air or hot water will help soften it and to pull it really quick.

This also an ideal solution to help stop your kids from kicking the front seat during travel, because the feet is propped up, this eliminates the temptation to kick the seat and avoid irritating seating in the front.

Another product I found in my desperate search for comfort while on flight is the Fly Legs Up Kids. This looks like hammock that comes with 3 comfy pillows. The jammock serves not only as leg support but it also acts a storage of your kids items. For little kids, this hammock is very versatile because you can play and sleep on it. It gives a flat platform for their legs to stretch on just like sleeping in a normal bed. For bigger kids, by simply switching the pillows, they can adjust the depth and leg room they want for more comfort. Also they can gauge on how firm or how soft they want it to be. This is recommended for children ages 2- 9 years old. Also the pack includes the 3 pillows, instructional sheet and the carrying bag along with the hammock.
