Babies have perhaps the largest footprint of any human combined. They get a bed that’s much larger than their proportions, have their own gizmos for the dining table, the car, and the outdoors, and let’s not dive into the sheer number of diapers they go through in a month. The point I’m trying to get to is that babies, by virtue of their accessories, can occupy tonnes of space… although the Bababing Bedside & Travel Crib wants that to change. Built with a unique foldable design that shuts flat (so you can store it in wardrobes, behind headboards, or underneath beds, the Bababing Bedside & Travel Crib is an award-winning crib that’s designed for comfort but also for compactness. Aside from folding shut, the crib comes with 360° caster wheels that allow you to move it around (in both closed or open formats) and lock them in place when you don’t want your crib shifting. This makes moving the crib from one room to another rather easy, making it easier for parents to manage a grumpy baby at night.

The Bababing Bedside & Travel Crib’s super-quick foldable/collapsible feature is a ‘market first’, the company says. It folds down to a slim profile that can be wheeled around and stored easily as well as stashed in the back of a car for taking with you on holidays and trips. The folding mechanism actuates with a simple click, requiring no dismantling whatsoever. The crib comes with a luxury soft and breathable inner lining (Kose CoolTM) that provides babies with utmost comfort regardless of the weather, and right underneath the bed is a dedicated storage space for keeping the baby’s belongings and accouterments.
The Bababing Bedside & Travel Crib comes with all the safety tests in accordance with baby crib standards. Other core features include fully lockable wheels for safety, netted sides to improve airflow and breathability, and visual details like wooden trims, high-quality fabrics, and machine-washable materials.
The Bababing Bedside & Travel Crib is a winner of the Red Dot Design Concept Award for the year 2022.
