We recently had the chance to try out the Indoor Tuckaire Toddler Travel Bed by a company called The Shrunks. This holiday season was the perfect time to pack it up and try it out, as we were planning to spend a few nights with relatives. The travel bed is approximately the size of a regular crib mattress, but it's also surrounded by an inflated bumper pad that keeps the child from rolling off. It was great knowing that we didn't have to worry about where my daughter would sleep and we could keep her in the same room without having to squeeze into one bed!
The Shrunks' travel bed comes in a cute little carry bag and has its own electric air pump, which is handy, compact, and easy to use. I would recommend keeping the box to store it all together and keep it in its best condition.
The first time I used it, I read the instructions; but after a little practice it takes no more than thirty seconds to set up. I love how quickly it inflates and it really holds its shape throughout the night. My daughter thought it was pretty fun to bounce on and I knew it would hold up. Of course, it's not recommended as a trampoline, but it didn't take long for my daughter to pretend it was.
One reason the Tuckaire Toddler Travel Bed is so well designed is that it can fit any regular crib sheet. The mattress edges even lift up slightly so you can tuck in the sheet and have it feel just like your child's bed at home. The Shrunks also sell sheets and bedding accessories, but any standard crib sheets will fit as well.
It can be difficult to get my toddler to sleep in a new environment, but this well-designed product makes it much easier. I love being able to easily travel with the lightweight travel bed, using the bedding that my daughter is used to and knowing I can rely on this mattress to hold up for years. When trying out a new sleep solution, one tip is to practice before hitting the road. My daughter tried it out at home during a couple of naps in the playroom, and one night in her own room. This familiarity was so helpful that when we spent those nights with our relatives, she cuddled right up and slept through the night. I am grateful to have found this wonderful solution and even more grateful for the well-rested child!
