Perfect Toddler Travel Pair: SlumberPod + Toddler Cot/Mattress
Are you room-sharing with your toddler due to traveling, renovations, limited space, or moving? Well, thankfully, SlumberPod’s bottomless design makes it perfect for pairing with select toddler cots and inflatable mattresses — so you and your toddler can sleep peacefully no matter the situation!
Recommended Toddler Inflatable Mattress
Overall dimensions are 36.6 inches wide by 50.5 inches long by 10.5 inches tall. The inner mattress has a soft, flocked top and perfectly fits a playard or mini crib sheet. While our overall length is intentionally a bit smaller than others on the market for optimal fit with the SlumberPod, SlumberTot still offers a generous sleeping area (28 inches wide by 27 long). Weight limit is 200 pounds.
SlumberTot comes with an electric pump that can be used to inflate the product in two minutes or less, and stows into a compact travel bag when not in use.
SlumberPod’s CEO and co-founder Katy Mallory asked one of her first-grade daughters (Helen) why she liked sleeping on her SlumberTot inside her SlumberPod:
- “It’s so cozy”
- “It feels like I’m camping in my own room or at Mimi’s house!”
- "I sleep better in here because it's dark!"
Recommended Toddler Cots
Regalo manufactures portable beds, playards, bathtime gear, booster seats, and safety gates. Their My Cot Portable Toddler Bed™ fits perfectly inside SlumberPod’s 50-inch-long, 36-inch-wide, 56-inch-tall footprint. This means toddlers that don’t sleep in a crib at home any longer can sleep on the My Cot inside our dark and cozy privacy pod: providing a dark place for naps and allowing for longer nighttime sleep while traveling.
The Regalo My Cot is 48-inches-long, holds small children up to 75 pounds, and folds up when not used.
This travel cot is by far the most popular among SlumberPod parents. However, there are a few other toddler cots that we have seen being used.
This portable travel cot by Baby Delight features durable fabric and locking, sturdy metal frames that can support children up to 75 lbs. It also has mesh walls to provide additional security for your little one. Dimensions for this cot are 50”x26”x16.25”, so it just fits inside SlumberPod.
