sleep anywhere with style and ease {Guava Family}

A travel crib or play yard is one of those essential items every new parent needs. Some people even skip the traditional crib and use a travel system instead. I don’t know what it is about our society, but sometimes it seems like the simplest things have become way too overcomplicated, and unfortunately, travel cribs have become one of those things. But thankfully Guava Family saves us with the most modern, space saving,user-friendly travel cribs on the market.Lotus_Crib_open_sitting_-_shopify_product_1024x1024 This Lotus Everywhere Crib has a few key features that make this totally different from any other travel crib I’ve come across. First, I can’t even stress enough how easy the set-up is. No joke, my mom even put this together without complaining or whining. If you knew her you’d be shocked, too. Set-up is literally 15 seconds of pulling the sides away from each other and snapping the legs straight. I remember trying to put together another travel crib with my husband and we were minutes away from throwing the thing out the window. Just like most other things that require assembly, it was easy to put together straight out of the box with the instruction manual, but once the manual was long gone, we were lost. But even 15 seconds of folding and pulling can get a little confusing if you aren’t doing it correctly, so Guava Family has ingeniously sewn a how-to picture tutorial directly, and indiscreetly, on either side of the travel crib. It’s literally as easy as matching shapes. Still getting lost? Just grab the manual from the inside pocket of the carrying case. Bam! Done.

2-Lotus_Backpack_-_shopify_product_1024x1024Playtime, napping, or nursing, how many times have you wished you could crawl in there with your baby? Well, Lotus has a side zipper opening! This is the feature that really sold me. Why hasn’t anyone thought of this sooner?! The Lotus practically begs to be a fort. It’s so cool for my son to be able to crawl in and out (he’s very busy these days). And at night, nursing moms know how important it is to create as little movement as possible for midnight feedings. The side zipper lets you sneak in stealth-mode, keeping your sleepy baby as calm as possible. And when there’s a need to keep them confined in their space, the zipper secures to an outside loop to keep them from escaping.

Let’s remember that the Lotus is a travel crib, so easy transportation is a must. Do you know what’s better than handles for carrying back and forth? Backpack straps. And the straps have a designated pocket along the side of the case, keeping them inconspicuous and totally out of the way when they aren’t in use. But even if you do prefer the one-handed carrying method the Lotus is a very lightweight, coming in at only 11 pounds. Comparing the Lotus to another brand, this thing is tiny when folded and packed in the case, an easy 4 inches smaller.  And when comparing mattress sizes, dare I say this – the Lotus is actually 6 inches bigger than the other brand! It’s modern and minimalistic with the completely unobstructed mesh sides and sleek legs. I am totally in love with the Lotus, I can’t find a single thing wrong with it. Guava Family, you’ve seriously outdone yourself.sunshade-blue-clipped_1024x1024

Cleaning can’t be any simpler. It’s actually possible to thoroughly clean every inch of the Lotus. Unzip the cover and toss it in the wash and let it air dry, and wipe down the legs. No little crevasses for food, dirt, or goo to hide in. And the frame is solid. The legs are angled in such a way to prevent from tipping over. This is a very thoughtful, well designed system. And be forewarned, it gets ogled.

The Lotus is available through their website, and Guava Family just released a collection of Fun Shades in 5 beautiful modern colors along with some other accessories. Follow them on Facebook and Twitter to stay in the know.
