Hey there. I've popped in before, asking about flying with an infant. Now I'm wondering if anyone has ever bought a travel sleeper or bed of any kind for their little one's. I don't really feel comfortable putting her on a bed - we cosleep, but our mattress is on the floor - and yet I don't really want her to have to sleep on the cold floor. I was thinking of just using blankets... she'll be 18 months when we travel. We'll be staying in a 4 star hotel in Galway, Ireland, and while I think they might have cots, I don't really want anything that'll be too far off the ground. Plus, she's a very difficult and particular sleeper, so I'd like to be able to buy something in advance to get her used to it before we travel.
I have not bought a travel sleeper, but over on the Cruise Critic boards, it's very popular for people to ask the cruise line for a crib mattress only and they put it on the floor for their kids to sleep on. That way they still have a comfy mattress but they don't risk falling out of the bed. Maybe the hotel can provide one for you as well? Good luck, I hope you find a solution that works. Your baby girl is precious!
That is a great idea! I'll have to check with the hotel. I would imagine being a 4 star, they should have it, but you never know... European hotels are very strange, lol. Thanks a ton, I'll let you know!
