Portable toddler beds often come in foldable designs that will be extremely easy to pack whenever you need to go on a trip with your little one. The style of this type of toddler bed can usually be folded into a compact package that can effortlessly fit into the trunk of your vehicle and may even be small enough to be included with your carry-on luggage. When you have a portable toddler bed in your arsenal, you won’t need to face the challenge of folding a regular toddler bed into something that will not eat up all the available space in your car.
A portable toddler bed is designed for easy setup. This is an important characteristic because you may need to quickly arrange a sleeping space for your toddler when you get to your destination, especially if your little one has scheduled nap time. The travel toddler bed usually only needs to be unfolded and then set up on the floor in the room where you will be staying, and it will be ready for your child to sleep on and enjoy. Setting up the portable bed will take only a couple of minutes, so you can be certain arrangements can be made before your toddler becomes too fussy.
The portable toddler bed is created to be settled on the floor before it can be used for your child’s sleeping pleasure. This position on the floor greatly reduces the risks of injuries from falling that may be a danger when a toddler falls from a regular bed elevated several inches off the floor. Even if your toddler accidentally rolls off the portable toddler bed, he or she will remain safe with the sleeping area’s position directly on the floor. Some options come slightly elevated, but they still offer a safer sleeping area compared to a high crib, especially when your toddler is fond of climbing over the rails to get out of bed. There are also quite a few portable toddler beds that have bumpers on the sides to prevent your child from rolling off.
- Comfortable and Familiar Bed on the Go
It can be difficult for a child to sleep in unfamiliar surroundings, which may be unavoidable when you are traveling. A portable toddler bed can help your child sleep peacefully in a familiar spot when you are away from your home. This bed can help your toddler feel calm and relaxed when you are staying in a hotel room or in another house that will look and feel strange to the little one. Bringing a portable toddler bed will also guarantee that your kid will be able to sleep in complete comfort regardless of where you are staying for the night.
- Doubles as a Play/Lounge Area
The portable toddler bed is not strictly for sleeping – it can also be used as your child’s play area. You can quickly set up the toddler bed on any available (and safe) spot on the floor for a dedicated space where your little one can play comfortably. Your child can be occupied with toys, reading materials, or electronic gadgets while staying on the portable toddler bed that also works as a much safer lounging area compared to a regular bed with its significant elevation from the floor.
