Sweet Dreams on the Go
Traveling with a young child can be tricky enough without having to worry about where they will sleep. The child’s comfort and safety are, of course, the primary considerations – hotels, and even friends and relatives, aren’t always likely to have suitable beds for little ones. Sometimes space itself is the issue; hotel rooms with two standard beds might accommodate the older members of the party, leaving the littlest traveler on what is often an old and uncomfortable roll away cot. Portable toddler beds can be an excellent solution to this problem, providing space, comfort and security for children, whether they are on an extended vacation or spending the night at Grandma’s.
Below, we have listed the top 5 portable toddler beds currently available from Amazon.com.

#5 – Intex Kidz Travel Bed with Hand Pump
The Intex Kidz Travel Bed is an inflatable bed that fits into a separate inflatable frame. Since the mattress separates from the frame, you can easily use standard crib sheets with this bed. When used together, the frame surrounds the mattress with a roughly 10-inch-high wall – perfect for the little sleeper who is too big for a pack and play, but still at risk of falling out of a regular bed. The mattress and frame are both covered with a soft, flocked texture, and the set inflates easily with the included hand pump. When it’s no longer needed, the bed deflates and can be stored in the included carrying bag. Much more affordable than full-sized beds, and with extra features designed with toddlers in mind, the Intex Kidz Travel bed is a great choice for traveling youngsters.
