    Great article!
    This is a thing I didn’t think about, as a father with 2 kids, and as someone who travels frequently, I see with those beds solutions for my difficulty traveling with them, they ar usually sleeping with us in the bed, so both of us (parent’s and babies) are not getting the needed comfortability to get a calm sleep.
    I will check out those products, thanks for you great review!

      It is really important that the travel routine is as close to normal as possible for everyone’s comfort. Providing very young children with their own space will provide the needed rest.

      Check out the reviews and see if there is one that will work for you. For me one of the most important things is portability and ease of use. Many of the manufacturers have figured that out.

      Feel free to share this post with others.

      Good luck in your search.

    I have not travelled with young ones for quite some time and back then the folding portable cot was a new thing. There were no toddler beds like these. As I am coming in to being in a time where I will soon become a grandparent I am amazed at these wonderful little bed. Gone are the days of sharing a mattress on the floor with your partner and your squirming, kicking 2 year old. Awesome idea. Now which one to buy? I shall have to have a good look. Thanks for the info. I had no idea these were available and will be doing more research. Will be great for me to keep here for visiting family.

    A toddler travel bed is a fantastic idea. That is one less thing to worry about when nap time and bedtime come around. I also visited the top rated toddler beds post and overall, the prices aren’t horrible. I’ve paid more for a dog bed actually. These seem like some comfortable options that are easy to transport, which should make everyone’s lives easier. Thanks for the info.
