REVIEW: Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light vs. Guava Family Lotus Travel Crib

Travel crib comparison: Baby Bjorn vs Guava Lotus

Today we’re reviewing and comparing two parent favorites in the travel crib category: the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib Light and the Guava Family Lotus Travel Crib (follow the links to read parent reviews for both on TotScoop).

First, let us preface this comparison by saying that you really can’t go wrong with either one.  They’re both great, very highly-rated products that parents absolutely adore.  Either would be a fabulous choice to take on a trip, to bring for Grandma’s house, or even to use as a small playard or secondary sleeping space at home.  Either would be much more portable and lightweight than, say, a Pack ‘n’ Play or any other playard.
