It’s been about /?$#%& years since I’ve had a baby (I don’t want to seem to old, so I’ll be vague.) But since some of my younger friends and siblings are still having babies, I get me share. Because my brother visited last year with his young daughter, I actually went out and bought a portable crib, car booster, and mini high chair. Oh yes, and an umbrella stroller. My husband nearly passed out. What I wish I had found was this, the Alma Mini Crib, by Bloom, www.bloombaby.com.
Its design is made specifically to serve parents in smaller urban spaces, co-sleeping, travel and overnights at grandma’s house. Pretty chic isn’t it?
It comes with 4 rolling castors, for room-to-room mobility during naptime. It folds…yes I said folds, for easy storage or transport.
Hello every hotel on the planet! If you want young parents to travel and stay at your hotel, toss the old dusty cribs out and invest! This could literally be the defining factor when that huge list of options pops up on TripAdvisor.com.
But this will blow your mind. It has a no-tools-required assembly that you can complete in less than 5 minutes. Let me say that once more.
NO TOOLS REQUIRED! SET UP IN LESS THAN 5 MINUTES!
This is Juvenile Hall Design, so of course the chic design and modern color choices are bold and sophisticated. Each makes it’s own statement. Each is great for boys or girls (for those babies that pop up down the road.)
Finally, let me offer a word of advice from someone who has spent many years moving around the country, desperate for an over night baby-sitter. If you have the luxury of living near your parents when you have a baby, consider this as a “Grandparent Gift.” It’s not only for them. It’s a gift for you! Being able to drop that baby off and get a little romance time is well worth the investment. You do remember how you got that baby, don’t you? ; )
