This little mesh sided mini crib has been a wonderfully handy item for my daughter and son-in law, and their new baby!
Sturdy and easy to move, it is small enough to use in the bed, to keep baby close, but safe. It works well as a portable changing spot, nap area, and safe place for baby to watch from, while mommy's doing the other things she needs to do. You can still keep an eye on the baby, but be able to safely put them down once in a while.
We keep it in the living room during the day, and it will continue to be a valuable baby space until our grandbaby is able to turn over and lift up on their own.
The mesh sides ensure that the baby won't get their breathing interfered with, and lets them see what's going on around them, so they don't feel isolated. It is easy to attach soft early toys to the sides, if they have velcro type loops, and the pad cover is removable for machine washing. It folds fairly flat, for storage or portability.
I highly recommend this as a gift for all new parents. Definitely cuts down on the stress.
