The Graco Travel Lite Crib is a crossover between a play yard and a travel crib. At just under 20 pounds, it's convenient for short trips but not ideal for camping or hiking. It folds compactly with the push of a button and includes a removable bassinet and mobile for infants up to 15 pounds. It can also function as a changing table and comes in a selection of six patterns to match your taste or décor. The Graco Travel Lite Crib is about 20 percent smaller than a standard play yard, so it may be necessary to upgrade to a larger unit as your baby grows. For outdoor trips, such as camping, the 11-pound BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light (*Est. $275) is a better choice, although it's considerably more expensive.
