features of the
Brica Fold 'n Go infant travel bed:
The first three
things that caught my attention about the Brica Fold 'n Go Travel
Bassinet were that:
1) This travel bed fold as flat as
any I've seen. For air travelers looking to check as little as
possible, this has definite benefits—you'd
hardly notice it in your suitcase. As a matter of fact, I found
the Brica Travel Bassinet almost fit into my rolling carry-on
(it may work in yours--but no promises!). Here are the
Folded: 22" at
widest point x 16" x 2" thick
L x 10"H x 22"W
Matress: 29"L x 18"W.
2) It's light. This travel bassinet
also weighs less than 3 lbs. including its mattress and fitted
cotton sheet--another reason you won't mind layering
it into your suitcase for air travel, or sliding it over the handle
of your suitcase as you roll into a road stop motel.
3) In spite of folding to such a thin
profile and weighing so little, the Brica Fold 'n Go has a sturdy,
rigid frame, and who doesn't
appreciate that when it comes to infant gear? The frame locks in
place at the center (green button shown left) and in the center of the vertical
supports on each end when open for use.
It's sturdy frame with 10" high ends also makes it a good candidate for
using with a mosquito net when camping, picnicking, or staying in
buggy climates (I'd recommend one fitted for infant car seats or strollers).
The structure and size would also work for typical travel
co-sleeping situations such as placing the baby's bed between your
heads on the hotel bed or lying beside it in your family tent.
