    Question What do your twins sleep in while traveling?

    We're going to Disneyworld in Sept/Oct, and the girls will be too big for pack n plays then. They'll still be in their cribs at home, what should they sleep on in the hotel? I don't want them in a bed, I'm sure they'd roll off, and we can only have one crib in the hotel room. Any suggestions or BTDT?

    Thanks!

    I have these at home and love them. We take them to grandma's as well. Just a suggestion.

    My TALL DS1 slept in a PNP on his 3rd birthday trip, so I am surprised that your girls would be too big at 2yo. I'd either rent cribs from abbf.com or do the PNPs.

    I don't have an answer for this but more of a similar question. We are going to take our 1 year old twins on a day trip to visit some family a couple hours away in a few weeks. We'll probably leave first thing in the morning and then just leave around bedtime and let them sleep on the way home. I know they'll need a nap at some point during the day while we're there. Do I take 2 pack n plays with us for the day or am I being ridiculous? I can't think of where else I'd be able to let them sleep....

    I'd be surprised if they couldn't still use the PnP!!

    We usually did an air mattress or put the hotel mattress on the floor with a few pillows around it. Or, dh and I would each sleep with one twin in separate beds.

    Are you staying on property? If so, the hotels all have bed rails. When my older two were younger, we would push the one bed up against the wall and then put bed rails along the other side. We have also split the girls so that one slept with each of us and there were bed rails on their side of the bed.

    Our girls are thrashers. They would probably technically fit, but they move around a lot, I'm not sure they'd be comfy in a PnP. We actually have a Arm's Reach. The last time they were in PnPs (in a hotel) it seemed small...do hotels have standard sized ones?

    Maybe I'll try to get measurements before I go to be sure.

    When my girls were at grandma's for their first birthday they slept in the Co-Sleeper together. Maybe your two would be ok doing that.
