Some hotels do provide cribs, but for a vacation rental, or hotel that does not provide cribs, you’ll be all set with one of these six travel cribs, one thing you won’t have to worry about is where baby will sleep. These cribs are portable with easy-to-fold shapes, and carrying cases that store easily in cars, trains and planes.
