Pea Pod Infant Travel Bed Compared to Little Life Infant Baby Travel Bed

We live in Canada and our son Holden in now just over a year old. We travel a lot – on trips to grandma and grandpa’s house, to see other members of our family – so having a portable baby bed for our son is important.

Until Holden was about nine months old he would sleep in the Little Life (LittleLife) Infant Baby Travel Bed. Some friends of ours have used the Pea Pod (PeaPod) Travel Bed for Infants.

I thought it would be interesting to compare the two beds.
