Why I chose the Peapod Plus over other travel cribs

Our family is traveling internationally and we’re not going to bring along a monstrous Pack ‘n Play so we started looking around for travel cribs. There are a number of options (some cool ones sold only outside of the US available online but we chose to find one domestically).

Great option for traveling with toddler!

OK I don’t normally write reviews but had to say just how well this product performed. We have 2 ½ year old twins and travel regularly. The kids are still in cribs and to this point we have always arranged to have cribs installed at our destination (which is often a logistical challenge). In a pinch I have rented the baby Bjorn travel crib but have been reluctant to purchase given the price and the fact it is pretty snug length wise for my “taller than normal daughter”. We ended up in a bit of a panic last week with needing to travel for thanksgiving and not being able to have cribs available. I couldn’t rent the baby Bjorn in time so I purchased two of these “pods” and had them delivered to our destination. I was plenty worried about how it would go – in part since my kids are still in cribs and worried the sudden freedom could mean no sleep for all. That said they worked GREAT and I was surprised that they stayed in them all night (we left the door flap rolled up). Definitely fit my daughter better than the baby Bjorn crib. I also love that they will work for a few more years (up to the age of 5). Think it was a good test of how the transition to toddler beds will go in a few months. Honestly wish I had considered them earlier since many times I haven’t gone to visit friends since having naps outside the home is tough. With these it will be a breeze to visit friends even just for the day. Pros – easy to set up, super light and travel friendly, and the kids LOVED sleeping in a tent. From my point of view (and others mentioned it) the padded bottom isn’t all that thick but didn’t bother my children one bit. One note – checking on your kids can be a challenge given you need to get down at ground level which isn’t an issue for us but would be if we left the kids with our grandparents. It was pretty funny – every time I went in to check on them felt like I was on a climbing expedition!

It also folds up very easily into a portable form

Our little heathen is very particular about where she sleeps. I still can’t figure out how daycare gets her to sleep on a mat–they must practice magic. Or drug her. Both reasonable options. At home, she HAS to sleep in her crib. I can’t get her to sleep anywhere else–not even with her blanket and Glo-Worm (80s, represent!) on the floor. So, we bought this in hopes it would provide a darker space for her to nap, in a more enclosed environment. It took 30 minutes to convince the suspicious little psychopath to go into it. Then she tried to get out. Not wanting to traumatize her, I sat with her and rubbed her back until she started to go to sleep. She didn’t totally nod off, but after another 30 minutes, I zipped the mesh inner flap and left her in there. Within a few minutes, she had fallen asleep. Success! She slept about an hour and was not thrilled when she woke up and couldn’t figure out how to escape (there’s an inner zipper, don’t worry). We didn’t zip the outside enclosure, and I’m not sure how warm it will be with it closed. There is a slight amount of padding on the bottom, but enough for a demanding little human to appreciate. It also folds up very easily into a portable form, which is a nice change from the pack n play. So we shall attempt this again and see how it goes. If it works, this will be our new travel system/sleeper. Keep us in your thoughts 😉

Awesome tent

We bought this for our 7 month old for hotel sleeps, a day watching big sis play soccer, and occasional naps at friends and family house

It’s HOW you introduce the PeaPod, not WHEN.

When we booked our reservations for 3 months of backpacking around Europe with our 15-month old, I began researching lightweight, compact travel beds for him. I knew our Pack N’Play would be too bulky and cumbersome.

For what it is – it’s okay…

I bought it for a small framed 3yr old. I thought it was much smaller than we anticipated & I don’t see anyone much larger than her fitting it comfortably. Despite her loving it initially, as soon as she figured out I wanted her to sleep in it, forget it. She freaked out. She HATED it zipped shut & so sadly it will not work at allll for what I needed. I need something portable that she cannot get out of silently. She is a total ninja & I thought at least this would alert me she is up by the sound of the zipper. BUT if I cannot zipper it with her inside that isn’t going to happen. She liked it as a play tent, but frankly I don’t need another play tent. I would chalk that up to her not liking it but she likes small space & loves getting into a large box & closing it.

bought for travel, use it everywhere!

My daughter (just turned 3) slept in her crib until very recently. We bought this to take with us on trips instead of getting a crib at every hotel. It is perfect! She’s a tall 3 and can use this for many more years. At hotels, we put the comforter from the bed under the peapod (for a plush sleep and since the comforters aren’t that clean anyway)…then a blanket inside and she loves it. Her little cocoon. My five year old nephew can fit in it comfortably, so I plan on using it for a long time. Fits in my suitcase, easy to use and best of all, offers my daughter comfort at unfamiliar places (even when she sleeps at other people’s houses here locally). Great buy and totally worth it.

We purchased the KidCo Peapod Plus to take along on a camping trip for our 15 month old. Super easy set-up. The travel bed is well constructed, with plenty of ventilation at your disposal. While the baby didn’t take to it (not used to sleeping outside a crib), we managed to throw our 7 year old daughter in there and she slept without issues. Would definitely suggest this to people who need an alternative to lugging around a big heavy Pack and Play, as the entire Peapod folds down into a small circle which slips into the provided travel case. It’s no more than an extra 3 pounds in the suitcase, which to me, makes it ideal for travel.

Suffocation risk for babies less than 1 year?

This is a super cool product. I used for my (then) 8 month old as a travel bed when we went to the beach. It was super easy to set up… it basically just pops open when you pull it out of the bag. Folding it up takes a little practice, but once you get the hang of it, that’s easy too… the key is not to over-think it.
