ENDING TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT! Be sure to enter for a chance to win this fabulous crib!

Getting out and about with your baby can be a tall order — but what if you could easily tote a travel crib and portable play yard in a backpack, so your little one has a cozy haven to sleep and play in, wherever life takes you? The new Lotus Travel Crib from Guava Family is a dream come true for parents. Weighing a mere 11 pounds and boasting a set-up time of less than 15 seconds due to its innovative, intuitive design (it practically ‘blossoms’ open, like a lotus flower), this ‘everywhere’ crib is compact and light enough to carry-on an airplane, or to take to grandma’s house, a friend’s dinner party, or virtually anywhere you need a pop-up refuge for your child. Designed for children ages 0-3, The Lotus Crib also features an ingenious side door that zips open and shut to be used for a variety of purposes. Mom can nurse baby in the crib, or dad can rock him to sleep, and then make a stealth exit through the opening before zipping it shut. When used as a play yard, older tots won’t feel imprisoned — they’ll see the Lotus as more of a special playhouse they may enter and exit freely.

In addition to its sleek and modern, aesthetically pleasing design, the Lotus Crib is safe and non-toxic: free of phthalates and lead and it contains no PBE or PBDE flame retardants. It also features completely breathable ClearView Mesh all the way down to the mattress on each side to allow for full airflow and an unobstructed view of your child.

Enter to win your very own Lotus Travel Crib, complete with mattress and carrying bag, after the jump!

  63. catLoversInc says:

    Living in San Diego, the outdoors is like one big open park. Although I am only 8 weeks pregnant ( and have come to the realization that almost everything baby related is expensive), I am sure that I will have the opportunity to use this crib almost everyday once the baby(or babies don’t know yet) comes.

  64. wigget says:

    to grandma’s house

  65. curtis206 says:

    for walks outside

  69. AShadeOfYou says:

    What a great idea and a wonderful gift.
    I’d have to say all of the above ^ this sure would get us out more as a family… It’s no easy task keeping your eyes on everything all the time. This would put any parent at ease knowing he/she is safe while your cooking or at the park or lake. Love the idea!

  70. goatmama says:

    We love taking our little one everywhere, and come spring are looking forward to introducing her to the Allegheny mountains! She’s only 12 weeks old and it’s been cold out, so our woods excursions have been limited so far, but the lotus would be awesome for all the family camping and travel we have planned for next spring and summer!

  71. petuniajoan says:

    We’re on a family quest to visit every U.S. National Park. This would really come in handy when we’re setting up camp!… and give mama’s back a little break from all the baby wearing hikes. Our little guy is only 2 months old right now so it will get a lot of use. We can’t wait to hit the road when it gets warmer.

  72. barefootlove says:

    I love taking my baby everywhere! A papoose is a daily part of my wardrobe!

  73. graemeb3 says:

  74. misstokyo says:

    I love taking my baby everywhere, but we’re visiting family in Hungary next summer and the Lotus would make life so much easier!

  75. erin p says:

    I love taking him pretty much everywhere except stores! One of my favorite places for us to go is a bakery that sells a ton of vegan goodies. We won’t need the playpen there, but it will definitely come in handy if we make it to Ireland to visit family later this year!

  76. purplepearly says:

    my son loves to go see and sleepover at his greatgrandpa’s place. I love seeing how my 12month old son can light up at smile on greatgrandpa’s face. Hope to go see his greatgrandma in vietnam this summer for her 100th birthday!.
