Melissa’s brilliant travel bed tip:
I ran across a Kidco Peapod (think mini tent with air mattress) that folds up as a small as a small throw cushion. You can zip the baby into it so that she won’t crawl away in the night and it’s easier to fit in a tent than a port-a-crib.
What a cool product! This could solve the problem of putting babies to bed in hotel rooms (it reminds me of Jill’s suggestion to put kids to bed inside a play tent). Or at the beach. Or at a friend’s 4th of July BBQ.
