Our Little Pea in a Pod

October 12, 2013

KidCo PeaPod Rocks!

We’ve been doing a lot of traveling. Wait, you already know that. So, we’ve been away from home A LOT! And Micah’s crib – packed up in a U-box somewhere….who knows which one. The little man has to sleep somewhere, somewhere with walls so he can’t crawl away. The KidCo PeaPod (like the KidCo GoPod) is a life saver. Pack N’ Plays are great, but they are big to be toting across the country in my little car, no way it would have fit with all our stuff, cat, and car seat. The KidCo PeaPod packs up small, opens itself, and is safe to contain my little man.

Zippers on PeaPod

KidCo PeaPod is Travel Size

Seriously, this thing can fit in a carry on! So we can bring it back with us anytime we fly to MN!

KidCo PeaPod Fits!

And to get it ready for baby, just unzip it and pull it out: it pops open and it’s ready! It is a little hard to fold back up, but we followed the instructions the first few times and since then it’s been easy! The bottom is padded, but it’s on the outside so no risk of baby working his way underneath!

Easy to Pack PeaPod

The PeaPod is Safe

In addition to the pad being on bottom, the PeaPod is totally enclosed (two zipper-openings, like a tent) so baby can’t crawl out. And there is plenty of mesh on the PeaPod so it’s breathable. KidCo has safety in mind when they put warnings on the bottom, like to leave padding outside and not let baby sleep with blankets, etc. The PeaPod Plus isn’t really meant for kids under 1 but MIcah did fine.

Ready to Sleep in the PeaPod

The PeaPod can Grow with Baby

The PeaPod Plus is meant for kids 1 – 5 years old, the regular PeaPod is a little smaller for kids 1 – 3. Micah didn’t seem totally lost in it, but the PeaPod is definitely big enough for him to continue using it as he gets older. I’m excited to go camping and use it as a mini tent within our tent! And maybe when he’s bigger he’ll use it as a play tent.

KidCo Baby

Micah Likes his PeaPod

As much as a kid can like somewhere he has to sleep at least. His life has been turned upside down over the past few weeks, so he’s had difficulty sleeping, period. But he seemed to sleep fine in the PeaPod. The first time we set it out, he was a little wary of it, but he quickly warmed up to it, crawling in and out playing. He slept in it while we packed our house and in the hotels on the way south.

  13. Amanda Alvarado says:

    We love road trips! What we don’t love is staying in hotels and having dd sleeping between dh and I in a full size bed! My dad is usually with us so we don’t have any other option since she is too big for a play yard! I think this would be perfect!
