Summer is coming and you know what that means...warmth and vacations!!! One of my biggest travel recommendations for giving your child a dark, private place to sleep on-the-go is the SlumberPod. A SlumberPod is a privacy tent that goes over a travel crib or toddler cot. It has ventilation panels to keep your baby cool and has passed extensive safety tests. We've used ours on many vacations, at church, and even at grandparents' and babysitter's houses.
A SlumberPod is the quickest and easiest way to provide total blackout for your child, no matter where he's sleeping. When you're going on vacation, you may not always know ahead of time how many windows there will be, modification restrictions, and/or exactly where your child will even sleep. With a SlumberPod, none of that matters! You can put your child right in any room and he can sleep in darkness even with the lights on. Yep, you can sit and chat or play a game in the hotel room with the lights on and your child can still sleep in darkness. No more "lights out" at 7:30pm so your baby can sleep!
If you'll be traveling a lot, I think it's worth buying a SlumberPod, especially because you can even use it through the toddler years with a portable toddler cot. If you are interested in buying one, you can use my code for $20 off: LITTLEBELL$20
