Product Description

We believe life should be spent together. So we designed a crib to make it easier to do just that.

The Lotus is more than a travel crib. It's an EVERYWHERE crib. So light. So portable. It sets up in 15 seconds. Use it everywhere, everyday. At Home. At friends' for dinner. At a playgroup. Across town. In the airport. Across the world.

And the Lotus travel crib is beautiful. It has clean lines, art-inspired graphics and logos, soft textured fabrics, and modern colors.

Easy for You:
Since it's effortless to take the Lotus portable crib with you and super fast to setup, you'll go more places and see more friends & family. Not just on overnight trips, but all the time at home and across town. And since it's a lightweight backpack, both hands are available for everything else, including the baby and diaper bag. Guava Family is the only company in the world that makes cribs that pack into backpacks.

Fun for them:
Nothing makes us happier than to see how much fun the little ones have in the Lotus travel crib. Give them their own way in and out, and they think of it as their world, not a prison. The side door, which can be zipped and secured closed turns the crib into a secure space where they'll love to play, laugh, sleep. We won't blame you for climbing in with them either....

Safe For Everyone:
No Phthalates. No Lead. No PBE or PBDE Flame Retardants. Full-side breathable mesh. ASTM F406-11B Approved. Also, the Lotus Crib cover is removable and machine washable. Spit up. Slobber. Drool. It's only a matter of time...

What You Get:
The Lotus Crib comes with the crib, mattress, and bag (with convertible backpack straps), and instruction manual, and our heartfelt thanks for joining the Guava Family!

It is very light and easy to carry.

With the Lotus Crib, the velcro serves this purpose, so you really need the open slots in the sheets to put the velcro tabs through.

Really love this Lotus Crib. Here's why:

Ease of use & portability:

It's lightweight and very portable. Much lighter than our pack 'n' play. Setup takes me less than 1 minute (plus another 1-2 minutes to close all the velcro tabs) and requires no tools. Putting it all back into the case takes me about 2-3 minutes. It will probably go faster when I become accustomed to doing it.

When it's set up, the shape and size are longer and narrower than our Chicco Lullaby LX play yard, and it's not as tall. It does not have wheels but it is very lightweight and easy to pick up and place elsewhere. Having it longer but narrower than a regular play yard means that it will fit a taller/longer baby until a later age (especially as there is no weight limit, unlike our play yard which has a 15 pound limit in the bassinet and 30 pound limit in the play yard). The narrower design and light weight also make this easy to move from room to room within the house, as it fits through doorways and is light and easy to carry (obviously take the baby out first). The narrower footprint also means that it's easier to find a place to set it up in a hotel room. (tip: When closing the crib to fold it up, the instructions tell you to press a button on each side of the top rail, that you can feel underneath the gray fabric. I think I was expecting something more round and sticking out, so it took me a minute to figure out what I was supposed to do, and I unzipped the gray fabric from the top rail to take a peak at the structure inside and look for the button I was intended to press. It was shaped more squarish and instead of being pushed in from the outside of the top rail as I had expected, you put your fingers under it and pulled up (towards the sky) on the button.

I wanted to find a review comparing the two and couldn't, so bought both. Here is my evaluation.
Pros: 1.Zippered side door is a nice addition, though less useful than I originally thought. Maybe good for crawling in and nursing while your baby sleeps, but really just as uncomfortable to get your baby in and out as bending over the frame. Also, if your baby is old enough to crawl in there himself then he probably needs a bigger play area.
2. Very compact, folds more compactly than the Bjorn and the backpack element is nice.
3. The top of the crib is the same size as the bottom, making it a spacious box. The Bjorn slopes in with the top rails having a smaller footprint than the bottom of the crib, making is seem smaller for baby to play in.
Pro or Con: Mesh all the way to the bottom. Some parents might think that's safer, but I think it makes it less cozy for baby, it's like they're sleeping on the floor with no protection from floor dust.
Cons: 1. Mattress is super thin, I think it's twice thinner than the Babybjorn. Doesn't feel comfortable at all. Basically the baby is sleeping on the floor. They say it's regulation, but Babybjorn has to follow the same regulations and they made a nicer softer mattress. Also, the bjorn mattress can be unzipped for cleaning the waterpoof cover and if you need you can also add your own foam cushion for older babies. But lotus mattress is sealed shut in the waterpoof case.
2. Smells out of the box. Materials just don't see as nice. It smells chemically, like vinyl, or just fresh out of a factory. Babjorn never had a single scent to it. The fabric at the top of the lotus crib snags VERY easily, while the bjorn's is soft and snag free.
And that's all, whichever you prefer will be fine, but I prefer the Bjorn for the above reasons.

I was quite torn between the Baby Bjorn Travel Crib and the Lotus Everywhere Crib by Guava Family, so I ordered both to get an in-person look at both! In the end, I chose the Lotus. Here's why:
-The door is so nice! My little girl (5 mths) wakes up fairly easily during transport; so by the time she's been suspended in the air from the top of the crib to the floor, she's awake! It's really nice to just nurse her, then barely move her to get her on the mattress. Also, I'm petite, so I can sit in the Lotus with her, which makes not waking her up even easier.
-The Bjorn mattress looks very thick and firm in their video (at least to me), but in real life, it's not that thick and seems a little too soft. It's probably fine, but I liked the Lotus better. I had read in reviews that the Lotus mattress was thin, and it is, but it's totally fine and comfortable.
-The Lotus can be taken as a carry-on. This is huge, especially if you have long layovers! Somewhere I read that the Bjorn can also be taken as a carry-on, but when I called the airline with the dimensions, they confirmed that it cannot.
-Not only will they let you use their product for 14 days with a money-back guarantee (return shipping included!), they encourage you to do so. Once I started using the Lotus, I loved it!
-Finally, the people at Guava are SO NICE! This, for me, is huge! I like to be treated like i matter as a customer, instead of a number. I had a lot of questions about mattress toxicity, suffocation hazards, etc., and they took the time to answer all of my questions and explain how their mattress is NOT TOXIC. It also seemed like they had done their research and were knowledgeable as to what they were talking about. They really are a small family operation that CARES!
Thank you Guava Family!
