Graco Travel Lite Crib

The Graco Travel Lite Crib is a lighter weighing and smaller portable crib than most others. Twenty percent smaller than standard play yards, it is easy for travelling and smaller spaces. Due to the smaller size, many parents find it convenient to use as a bassinet next to their bed when the baby is a newborn and then later as a play yard.

Features:

  • Removable full bassinet with quilted bumpers – for use up to 15 lbs
  • Canopy with soft hanging toys
  • Weighs 18.5 lbs
  • Moves around on lockable wheels on 1 side
  • Fits through doors
  • Folds with the push of a button – easy and fast
  • Airy mesh sides for maximum ventilation
  • Quilted mattress pad
  • Comes with a carrying bag for storage
  • Comes in a variety of colors and patterns
  • Play yard intended for children under 25 inches

Downsides:

  • Sits low to the ground
  • Smaller space so may not be convenient as baby gets bigger
There is a Graco Travel Lite With Stages that is different than the Travel Lite in that the bassinet can be lowered to an additional level. The second level is lowered and can be used until your baby is 20 lbs.  The Travel Lite only has the top level for max weight 15 lbs so it does not have this 2nd level before the bottom play yard.

The only main difference between the Travel Lite and a more basic play yard (ex Graco Pack ‘n Play) is the size otherwise they are virtually the same. The Travel Lite does not have the bells and whistles of some other more expensive play yards. If you think you may use the play yard often as baby gets older then you may consider buying the regular size one but if you are short on space and travel often then the Travel Lite is a great way to go.
