Product Overview

Best Portable Baby Bed for Travel

As mentioned, it can be very difficult as a new parent to choose from the seemingly endless choices for bassinets. If you are a new parent on-the-go, we think the Brica Travel Bassinet is a great option.

This is a small bassinet, designed to be placed on the floor wherever you want your baby to rest. It measures in at 30 x 18.5 x 10 inches and weighs only 2.45 lbs.

The Brica Travel Bassinet was designed with portability in mind. Perhaps its flagship feature is the ability to simply fold it up and carry it anywhere. It is small and portable. It is made of mesh material so that you can simply fold it in half, and it even has a handle for easy carrying. The double locking tubular steel frame and Safe-T-Lock system will provide you with the peace of mind that no matter which setting you put it in, it will remain safe and secure for your baby.

Of course, this is great for your travel needs, but surely the most important part for you is what is best for your baby. Luckily, this bassinet was also made with this as a top priority. There are many features that make this a great bassinet for your baby as well.

Surely what is the forefront on your list of concerns is how your baby will sleep in this bassinet. It is made with a firm, 1-inch thick mattress, which is ideal for newborns. Also, the fitted sheet ensures that your safety concerns are put to rest as well. This is a safe, comfortable environment for your baby, and that is probably the number one thing for parents and babies alike!

Additionally, the aforementioned mesh material provides breathability to keep your baby comfortable, while the frame provides the strength and stability to ensure that your newborn stays put.

The mattress pad and the sheet are also removable and machine washable. If you are a new parent, you know how important this feature is. Just being able to throw it in the washing machine saves a world of headaches.

We think this is an excellent bassinet for travel purposes, so let’s now look at some pros and cons, to sum up what we think about this product.

Pros

  • Secure: The double locking frame and Safe-T-Lock system provide the security you need to know your newborn is staying safe.
  • Portable: This product is light (2.45 lbs.), folds easily, and comes with a carrying handle as well.
  • Comfortable: The 1-inch thick firm mattress and the fitted sheet will help your newborn sleep soundly and securely.
  • Machine washable and removable mattress pad and sheet.

Cons

  • Small: While this is an ideal portable bassinet. It lacks the frame and the height for a bassinet that you might put in your bedroom.

Usages

As mentioned, this is an ideal bassinet for travel and portable purposes, but it may not be what you are looking for if you want a permanent bassinet to stay in your home. For a permanent bassinet, you would want something higher up so you don’t have to bend down every time you want to pick up your newborn. You would likely also want something that is more visually appealing than a mesh bassinet.

However, this bassinet is a great thing to have if you simply want to place it around the house wherever your newborn wants to nap. Or if you want to quickly run out to the park, to grab lunch or more, you can easily carry this bassinet along with you.

This is why it is important to know what you are looking for in your purchase decision. If you want a simple, highly portable bassinet, then this is probably the product for you.

Conclusion

We know that purchasing a bassinet is a stressful decision, and probably just one of the many stressful decisions you have to make as a new parent. Being mobile is key to keeping your stress levels low as a new parent, and having the tools to transport your newborn can be absolutely essential (for you and your baby). We hope that this review has given you the insight needed to help guide your choice. While you will probably be investing in a more permanent bassinet as well, it is never a bad idea to supplement it with something portable. Being able to go on walks and enjoy the outdoors will help you a lot as a new parent, and the Brica Travel Bassinet can definitely assist in this regard.
