What We Love
Foldable into Backpack Form
This is the only soft, portable baby bed that conveniently folds into a backpack in seconds by pushing just the two sides inwards. The bassinet will form a U shape as pictured below which you can then carry on your back.
What this gives is the ultimate portability because you can have both your hands free to tend to baby or manage other stuffs. If you have travelled with a newborn before, you will know just how much convenience this brings.
Even if you don't carry it on your bag, the compact folded size of the Lulyboo will mean not much luggage space is required.
Again, when you have a million of other baby stuffs to pack, this truly makes your travel life so much easier.
Crib, Playpen and Changing Station
Another thing that we like about Lulyboo is it is a crib, playpen and changing station all in one.
You know how we rave about the reversible changing station this 2-in-1 bassinet provides? Well, the Lulyboo is something similar, but without the weight of the former!
Strip itself off of all its accessories and you get an oval sleeping place for baby anywhere s/he goes. On top of that, it can double up as a co-sleeper for you to place next to you on your bed.
Attach the hanging toy bar and it becomes a playpen where two plush toys will keep your baby entertained with sensory stimulation promoted on the go.
Put the canopy on if you are outdoors and the 2-position shader can be adjusted to protect your baby from the elements.
In any form, the baby bed and portable co sleeper can also be conveniently used as a diaper changing mat.
We do think the canopy should be pushed back or removed for easy accessibility though, but you get the point.
Indoor and Outdoor Uses
Like the Karley, you can use the Lulyboo outdoors as well.
Be it at the beach or park with the entire family, the waterproof bottom of the bassinet will allow you to do so without any worry.
The removable canopy will shade your baby from the sun and wind, allowing him to sleep, nap or play in comfort.
Specifically built with outdoor adventures in mind, the entire liner is removable and machine-washable so you do not have to worry about spills, messes or rough terrain.
Just unzip the whole fabric liner and chuck it into the washer after a whole day out and you will get a clean bassinet in no time.
Oh by the way, there are 6 beautiful prints for you to choose from for the breathable fabric.
Things to Note
The Bassinet To-Go has not much we can fault. For what it is -a travel bassinet, we think it does its job perfectly.
However, you will have to accept the fact that it will be slightly smaller than standard bassinets with frames and legs. Incidentally, you may not get as long a usage period as the others as babies will outgrow it quicker than the rest.
But that is something to be expected. Given its design is built around compactness and mobility purposes, you can't expect to have it all.
If you want ultimate portability, you will have to forego bigger sizes and vice versa. Which is why it is so important to first identify your main purpose/how you are going to use your bassinet as we mentioned here before choosing the best bassinet for your newborn.
From outdoor capability, multi-functionality to a lightweight like no other (a grand total of 3 pounds!), this infant travel bed has combined some of the best and signature features of the most popular bassinets in its one unit.
Even if you do not use it for overseas travel, the easy portability and storage of the Bassinet To-Go means you are able to give your baby a familiar place to sleep no matter where they are.
