Traveling with babies and toddlers is always interesting. First, you have to plan the actual trip. How will baby do? What can you do as a parent to make baby more comfortable and able to pass the time while you’re traveling? But then there are other considerations, namely, all the gear that you have to pack so you can travel with baby. Think playpens, strollers, portable changing tables, etc. If you have twins, the planning is likely double. However, if you choose one of the best travel cribs for twins, you may get a lot of your travel gear in one purchase.
Best Travel Crib for Twins
Hands down, the best travel crib for twins is the Joovy Room².
This product comes with a thick pad for the bottom as well as a soft, fitted, waterproof sheet. This playpen can accommodate children from newborns to those 35 inches tall, which means you’ll be able to use it for several years. (The manufacturer asks that you discontinue use when the child can climb out.)
There are many pros with the Joovy Room².
This portable playpen is bigger than standard pack n plays, which makes it ideal for twins. In fact, it’s nearly 10 square feet in size and can easily accommodate two children.
The Joovy Room² has wide mesh on all sides, so you can more easily see your children.
It also comes with a storage bag that you can use when traveling with the Joovy.
Finally, it has two wheels on the bottom to allow you to easily move the Joovy Room².
Twin Nursery Center Bassinet Playpen Accessory
For newborns and infants, you can purchase the Joovy Twin Nursery Center Bassinet Playpen Accessory.
This handy accessory turns your playpen into the perfect portable crib for twin babies. It includes:
- Bassinet divider (so each baby has their own separate space to sleep in), and
- Changing table (which sits on top of the bassinet area)
For convenience, the changing table flips to the side when not in use.
The bassinet holds up to 30 pounds, which means the twins can use it until they weigh 15 pounds each.
Although twin parents love the Joovy Room², it does have some drawbacks.
Because it is large and comes with a high quality, thick mattress, some parents say that it’s heavy. A few even say it’s too heavy to travel with. However, that is a minority of parents.
Other parents complain that after the sheet has been washed a few times, it has the tendency to bunch and not fit as snugly as when it was new.
If you’re looking for the best travel crib for twins, consider adding the Joovy Room² to your baby registry or buying it. This product will continue to serve your family for several years.
