Our daughter jumped out of her crib at 18 months, forcing us to switch her to real mattress on the ground at home earlier than expected. When we travelled, we could no longer put her in a pack-and-play/crib, and she was still too small to climb up/down a big bed. This blow up mattress was the solution and worked really well for us! Our daughter slept well on it.. Only downside was that she slept in the same room as us, so when she woke up, there was nothing stopping her from walking over to our bed at any hour of the morning! Still worth it either way... Very happy with the purchase - would recommend. No issues with leaks, pump worked very well.
