Perfect size, comfortable for baby, portable, and not crazy expensive.

Pros:Small but not too small, good mattress, easy set-up and take down, affordable, and comfortable.
Cons:None that I have found yet.
The Bottom Line:
Why buy a bassinet or co-sleeper when you can buy something like this that is portable, easy to set-up and take down, comfortable for baby, and affordable.
With my first baby, my husband and I borrowed a co-sleeper. It was a terrible experience. The old co-sleeper was old, took up too much space in our small bedroom, didn't have a good mattress, was uncomfortable for baby and was difficult to set-up and take down.

When we decided to have our second baby, I knew that I would want to purchase a new co-sleeper, and that is what we did.
The Graco - Travel Lite Portable Crib, Notting Hill was the perfect idea for us.
First, it is smaller than a regular pack-and-play, so it fits better in a smaller space.
Second, it sets-up like a pack-and-play...very easy.
Third, it has a nice little mattress pad; making it comfortable for our baby. (I used a folded mattress pad on top of the mattress for extra protection and cushion. Then I covered it with a regular baby-bed fitted sheet and tucked it in real good.)
Forth, it grows with your baby. It has 3 stages. Stage 1 bassinet for an infant under 15 lbs. Stage 2 bassinet for an infant under 20 lbs.
Stage 3 play-yard for use by a child under 35" tall and unable to climb out of the play-yard.
Fifth, it was a great value. Compared to other similar products and the usability of them, this item is FANTASTIC!
I tell everyone about our little travel baby-bed. My baby is 2.5 months and now sleeps in his own room, but the travel baby-bed is still in use at the babysitters house. When we take our family vacation in the summer, this little bed will definitely be coming with us.
