Gear Up: Pick a Playard - The Baby Cubby

Gear Up: Pick a Playard

With the world opening up a little more each day, you may have some travel plans in the near future. You've mapped out your route. You've packed your bags. You've booked the hotel...but where will baby sleep and hang out?

Playards give your little one a convenient place to rest, as well as a safe, contained place to play while you're on the go. A good playard will make your travels so much smoother. Take a look at our selection of top-of-the-line playards to find one that works for you.

Nuna Sena Aire Mini Playard

If you're looking to save some space, the Nuna Sena is an excellent option. It has a one-handed fold, it's lightweight, and it even has a bassinet attachment. Not only is it great for travel, but it can double as a bedside crib if you need somewhere for baby to sleep in your bedroom. This compact travel companion is ready for Grandma's house!

4moms Breeze GO 5.0

The appropriately named Breeze Go is a breeze to set up and take down. As someone who has fiddled with a handful of playards, this one remains one of my favorites for its ease of use. It has joined us on many vacations and it's still where my baby naps daily. It's the perfect environment for baby to play while being contained. It includes a water-resistant mattress and can be used from birth to 30 lbs.

Baby Jogger City Suite Multi-Level Playard

This lightweight playard is designed to grow with your baby. Once baby has outgrown the elevated bassinet, it can easily switch to playard mode for toddlers up to 35''. The included mattress fits both the bassinet and playard, simplifying transitions and storage.
