It is always great to have a travel baby bed on hand. Especially around the holidays or if you travel often. This bed is made for babies 0-6 months old. Although, Gavin is almost 7 months old and fits in it with room to grow. It is also very light weight and easy to carry. This has two carrying options, the handle on the top of the bag as well as the over the shoulder strap that is included. This bed is very convenient since it can be folded and transforms into a bag that can hold items when traveling. This product also works great as a changing table. Overall the idea of this travel bed is great. The only down fall is that the material inside the bed that I received was not the polka dotted pattern shown on Amazon, which was a small disappointment.
