New parents are constantly told about a lot of gear they “need” to acquire before baby arrives, from heart rate monitors and vibrating bassinets to Keurig-style instant formula makers and wipe warmers. But the reality is, most of these things fall under the category of “nice to have” or “probably won’t even use” more than “must-have.” However there is something every parent really needs to consider: a portable crib/playard — and Gladly has essentially perfected this item for families on the go or those that are just a bit tight on space.
The Merritt Portable Playard Suite from Gladly Family is something parents can use — and babies can enjoy — from birth into their toddler years. This take-along suite includes a fold-away changing station, detachable changing top, adjustable bassinet, and an extra-large diaper caddy with tons of room to store all of the (very many) things you need within arm’s reach when there’s a new baby in town. The caddy even has pockets on the top and on the side, so you can really fit everything you need in there.
But let’s get down to my three favorite features, in descending order.
The Merritt Portable Playard Suite comes with a super soft and comfortable mattress. It’s just the right thickness and softness that baby will get a great, safe nights’ rest, but it is also sturdy enough for playtime and to cushion the inevitable tumbles. Some other playards require purchasing an additional mattress or a topper, so it’s super nice that this one comes all-in with everything you need.
Next favorite feature: the setup is outrageously easy. New parents understand that the more things you can do with one hand, the better, and setting up this playard is a one-handed task. You simply stand it up and push down on the center and everything completely clicks into place. And packing it back up is just as easy by pulling up on the strap in the middle.
And finally, the moment we’ve all been waiting for … the best feature of Merrit’s Portable Playard Suite… the travel bag. Everything stores so neatly and easily into the super durable travel bag, which also has two comfortable shoulder straps so you can wear it like a backpack, which makes the weight so much easier to manage.
The walls are also made of a breathable mesh, so toddlers can enjoy playtime in a safe space and parents can see what’s going on at all times. It’s also got non-skid feet, so you can drag this bad boy right around your house without damaging the floors.
Available in a neutral gray or bubbly pink design, the Merritt Portable Playard Suite has tons of features that will make traveling with baby just a little bit easier. It’s also especially great for smaller spaces thanks to it’s incredibly easy setup and storage capabilities. With impressive highlights including unmatched mattress quality, smart storage pockets, and an amazing backpack-style travel bag, parents are sure to be wowed by all this playard has to offer.
