I did a review awhile back on my recent favorite baby purchase: The Guava Family Lotus Travel Crib. I want to share two awesome accessories for the Lotus travel crib.

The mattress on the Lotus is perfectly fine without a sheet, but I really wanted to add another layer of protection and also give the mattress a softer feel for when my toddler is hanging out inside. More so, when we travel with him, I want to ensure that his sleeping spot is cozy so that he can sleep soundly the entire night. The quilted sheet was ideal! It fits great, is incredibly soft and more importantly, it’s sturdy. It washes well, too!IMG_0090

The quilted velour surface is 100% polyester, recommended for ages 12+ months and it runs $26.95 on the Guava Family website. The sheet is fitted, but also has holes for the velcro straps on the Lotus, which really ensures that it stays in place.

I stumbled upon the fun shade after getting my Lotus crib and thought it was perfect! We had already been making our Lotus into a fort when it wasn’t being used as a pack n’ play since the side zips down. But this UV shade is even better because it actually conforms to the crib. Ideal for the outdoors and I cannot wait to use it at the beach when it’s nap time. After putting it on a few times, my son thought it was the coolest thing. Available in several bright colors, making it particularly fun. The Fun Shade will run you $36.95 on the Guava Family site.

  • The Fun Shade is UPF 50+ to provide maximum protection from the sun.
  • Machine Washable, 100% quick-dry polyester.
  • Comes in a great little travel bag.


I’m thrilled with these two Guava additions. Again, I always wish things were less expensive, but such is this life of raising tiny humans.

I would love for Guava Family to come out with some kind of waterproof sheet to add to the mattress for situations where you might want to quickly pull off the sheet and toss it into a wet bag. It would be ideal to have something that could be pulled off and later throw in the laundry. I’ll be watching for new accessories over the next few years!
