The 4Moms Breeze Plus is heavy (nearly twice as heavy as the Guava Family Lotus or the BabyBjörn Travel Crib), bulky when folded, and more expensive than other, better travel cribs. Although it comes with a travel bag and can technically be slung over a shoulder, it's designed more as a second sleep space or playard to be used in your house and collapsed/stored in a closet when you don't need it. It comes with both a bassinet and a changing station.
Things We Love
- Looks Nice: The 4Moms Breeze Classic looks super sleek in black fabric with matte black components.
- Very Easy to Assemble and Disassemble: Push down to expand the Breeze. Pull up to collapse it. It’s that easy.
- Good Size: Measuring 45.5 by 32.5 by 29 inches, the Breeze is a touch larger than the Guava Family Lotus, the Babybjorn Travel Crib Light, and the Phil and Teds Traveller.
- Bassinet and Changing Station Included: The Breeze Plus has a wonderful bassinet for newborns and small infants. It’s on the bigger side for bassinets, measuring 31 by 21 inches, and is a great sleeping spot for pre-mobile babies weighing less than 18 pounds. It also includes a changing station.
Things We Don't Love As Much
- Very Heavy: Weighing in at 24 pounds, the Breeze is nearly twice as heavy as the Guava Family Lotus and the Babybjorn Travel Crib Light and four times heavier than the Phil and Teds Traveller. This is not the ideal travel crib for those who frequently travel through airports or need to carry it longer distances.
- Bulky When Folded: The Breeze folds to a bulky 31 by 12 by 12 inch package. It is one of the larger folded cribs out there.
- Good Carry Strap… If Only It Weren’t So Heavy: The bag has a strap you can use to throw the Breeze over your shoulder, but it is still a heavy, awkward carry.
- Bad Bag Design: The Breeze carry bag only fits the Breeze, not the bassinet or the crib mattress or anything additional. The material is flimsy and rips easily. This is not good news for those planning to use this travel crib for frequent travel.
- So/So Mattress: The Breeze isn’t known for its super comfortable mattress, but it gets the job done reasonably well.
- Fitted Sheet Sold Separately: The Breeze requires a special fitted sheets for its mattress and bassinet mattress, which are sold separately. The main mattress fitted sheet is $39.99 and the bassinet fitted sheet is $29.99. These sheets are waterproof, but they are not organic and the design is pretty unattractive. You might be better off getting a mini crib fitted sheet and making do.
- Expensive: It's 50% more expensive than the BabyBjörn Travel Crib Light and the Guava Family Lotus, and we'd rather see you spend your Benjamin elsewhere.
- 4Moms Breeze Plus – $299.99
- 4Moms Breeze Fitted Sheet – $39.99
- 4 Moms Breeze Bassinet Fitted Sheet – $29.99
Note: 4Moms also sells two similar versions of this travel crib– the 4Moms Breeze Go for $199.99 and the 4Moms Breeze Classic for $249.99. The Go measures 43 by 30 by 29 inches, weighs 23 pounds, and folds to similar dimensions as the Breeze Plus. The big difference between the Go and the Plus is that the Plus has a bassinet and changing station while the Go does not. Also, the Go is only available in gray, which has a somewhat industrial look to it. Everything else is similar. The Classic is different because it does not have a changing station and is only available in white with a baby-ish pattern on the bottom. We're not fans of either of these options.
