  1.   If you are an active person who likes to travel, chances are that parenting has changed your life in ways you couldn’t have imagined. Even when the time comes to bring your kid along on your leisure and camping trips, the concerns are still there…   Will they have a god night’s sleep on the road?   Is it safe for my kid to sleep on an air mattress or should I choose a portable folding bed?   How will I pack the thing?   What about “accidents”?   It’s important to take your time and choose right because, let’s face it, if your kid doesn’t sleep, you don’t sleep.   So, let’s tackle those questions and make sure that we know how to strike the balance between the safety of your child and your convenience on the road.   Apart from that, this guide will also be useful to the parents looking for a bed that will be a transition from a crib to a classical bed.   A well-chosen portable bed is not only a vacation item; it can also be used as:   Cozy nest to bask during the day and take naps   Spare bed for sleepovers   Daycare bed   To kick things off, let’s look at the most popular styles available.   Airbeds for kids (inflatables)   Probably the most common choice for a travel bed, for a few very good reasons:   It packs very small and light, easy to pack and store   Most models of the inflatables come with raised sides to keep your little one safe from rolling over.   Probably the only portable travel bed for kids that can be taken on a plane, they come with their own carry bag and the pump (usually electric) and it easily fits into a suitcase, so there’s no extra piece of luggage   It’s simply fun – if you have never owned an air mattress, follow the reactions of your child as they see it inflate. It’s a bed and a show, you’ll probably have to inflate it and deflate it over and over again, simply because it’s fun to watch   The PVC cleans very well and does not hold smell when (if) accidents happen   Some of the disadvantages of toddler air mattress   Risk of air leaks   Again, if chosen wisely, your airbed will hold air and probably need topping off no more than once a week. To make sure you choose right, take a moment to read reviews of the air mattresses and choose the best.   Safety concerns   Over the years, the industry of air mattresses has changed a lot and there’s much less room for any potentially harmful substances being to be used in the manufacturing process.   Having said that, it’s your best bet to look for a bed that’s eco-friendly and chemical free and list so explicitly.   Final words on inflatable beds for kids   As you can see from the “disadvantages”, a well-chosen blow up bed doesn’t really have any. What’s listed under the disadvantages can be avoided by knowing what you’re looking for and making a smart, cautious decision.   Bottom line, an inflatable is a solid option for a travel bed and probably the most practical.   So, let’s move on to analyze and review what are the PROs and CONs of the other styles:   Cots for kids   When looking for a good solution, a toddler cot should probably be considered only if you don’t plan to use it very often.   It is usually much cheaper than the other options but there’s a reason for that – it’s much less comfortable and the kid should already be used to sleeping on a bed without sides.   Materials   The materials used are steel for the collapsible frame and plastic for the joints. The main reason it’s not as comfortable as an inflatable or as foam folding bed us that the top of the bed is canvas with very little padding.   Bottom line, if you are choosing a cot over other options, you might think about getting a foam mat for added comfort.   At the price point getting a good cot (if that’s your decision) shouldn’t be a problem.   Foam fold up bed   Now, a foam foldable bed is a whole different animal. The most expensive of the three choices, but by far the most comfortable.   Advantages of a folding toddler bed:   The most comfortable option (entirely made out of soft foam)   Safest option – since the bed has no hard parts (as opposed to a cot) and cannot loose air (as oppose to a blow up) there’s no risk involved   Design – the slickest and the most luxurious option of the three   Disadvantages of this type of portable bed:   Costly – the most expensive option   Bulky – better used at home than for travel, especially by air   Hard to clean if “accidents” happen – you’d have to take the whole bed apart to try and clean it. Yet, there’s very little chance you’ll be able to get the smell out of the foam.   The sides of the bed are not as sturdy as those of an airbed and if your toddler is a restless sleeper they are more likely to roll off   With all that said, a folding toddler bed us your best bet if your little one sleeps relatively calm, is accident-free and its main use will be as a house bed.   Concluding thoughts on portable travel beds for your kid   Let’s make a stock-take of the information we presented so far in the form of questions you need to ask yourself before any decisions:   What will be the main use of the bed, home or travel?   How often do you plan to use it?   Is your little one still prone to “accidents”?   Do you need to take it on a plane when traveling?   How calm of a sleeper is your child?   Pair the answers to these five questions with the analysis of each type of bed we went through and you should be clear on what’s the best fir for your family.

  2.   In light of the current coronavirus pandemic, we’re all trying to figure out how to do the things we used to do in a safe, responsible manner. Undoubtedly, some activities will be off-limits for a while, including sports games, concerts and fairs. But one thing we’re all realizing together is that the outdoors are still, in part, a safe haven. And camping may be one of the best ways to enjoy them.   But just because an activity occurs outside doesn’t make it virus-proof. We’ve watched as cooped-up residents have flooded city greenspaces and swarmed public parks, putting thousands in too-close proximity to one another. We don’t necessarily blame them — fresh air and sunlight are vital to good health and mental well-being, but it’s best to soak it up in the vast wilderness rather than the city park.   If you’re planning to head out for a camping trip as a break from the stressors of quarantine life, it’s crucial that you do so in a responsible manner. Remember, if we all enjoy nature responsibly, the parks won’t be forced to shutter, and we can all take advantage of them throughout the summer and fall. Here are the best ways to practice socially distant camping.   Before you head out for your camping trip, you need to do a couple of things to make sure you’re set up for a safe, responsible trip.   Social Distancing Rules While Camping   1. One Site Per Family or Individual — Your campsite crew should be the exact same as your quarantine crew. The only people you should be sharing a tent, campsite, picnic table or camp chair with are the people who you also plan to go home and live with after your trip. You may camp with friends or family members who live elsewhere, but they should have their own campsite and tent.   2. No Sharing Food, Gear or Coolers — If possible, ensure that each member of your group has his or her own set of camping essentials,portable folding bed. Everyone should have a headlamp or flashlight, a sleeping bag, a pillow and a camping chair to themselves. We also recommend packing one cooler per family unit or individual, and, of course, not sharing any food or drinks. When it’s time to get together for dinner or a campfire, have each individual bring their own chair and resist the urge to swap.   3. Space Out As Much As You Can — The six-foot rule still applies, even in the middle of the wilderness. Space your tent and camping chairs at least six feet apart from one another for the duration of your trip. This even applies around the campfire.   4. No More Than 10 People Per Group — Smaller groups are better when there’s a fast-spreading virus out there, and it’s generally best to stick with the people who live in your household. You may invite others, but as a general rule of thumb, keep your camp crew to under 10 people. By this, we mean 10 people in total across all tents and campsites. In other words, you don’t want to be regularly socializing with more than nine other people during the entire course of your trip.   5. Disinfect Upon Arrival, Disinfect Upon Departure — We still aren’t sure how long the virus can live on certain surfaces, so treat the campground like you would any other public place during this time. Bring disinfectant wipes or spray with you and thoroughly wipe down the picnic table and bathroom facilities before use. Remember to avoid spraying any harsh chemicals directly onto any plants or into the air and always properly dispose of the trash. We recommend not borrowing or renting gear at this time, but if you decide to do so, make sure to spend extra time thoroughly disinfecting before use.   6. Skip the Group Facilities — It should go without saying, but try to limit access to any public facilities at the campground or trails, including pools, hot tubs, grills, playgrounds, public fitness equipment, showers and even benches. This is one scenario where going the primitive route — i.e., no bathroom or shower facilities at the campground — may be beneficial, albeit a bit inconvenient.   7. Play No-Contact Games — Just because you have to stay six feet apart doesn’t mean you can’t still play some fun games! Skip the cards, football or catch and instead turn to old-school options like charades, 20 questions or bingo. Spend your game time telling stories or holding a campfire concert instead of playing sports or board games. We also provide zero gravity chair manufacturers, Please contact us if you need.
  3. aluminium beach chair ergonomics can be an important part of ensuring that you enjoy your summer vacation. After all, while you don’t expect the same comfort from a beach chair as your living room sofa, you don’t want to end up with a backache on vacation. Let’s look at few ways to select the right chair.   What to Look for in a Beach Chair   While you may not want to spring for an ergonomic beach chair (they can get pretty pricey), some of these are the best options for the ultimate in comfort and safety. However, by remembering proper posture, you can select a comfy and safe chair without having to spend a ton of money on your own.   Here are a few things to watch out for:   Avoid chairs that have you sink in at the back and then swing your legs over a bar. Even if you find one that is comfortable, having your hips lower than your knees always places additional pressure on your lower back.   Avoid uncomfortable chairs. This may seem like a no-brainer, but if you feel uncomfortable the second you sit down, you’ll be even more uncomfortable after half an hour. Avoid chairs that have a support bar digging into your back or neck.   Here are a few things to look for:   You want a seat that lets your hips and knees be at an even level. Otherwise, you want a chair that completely reclines backward and allow you to lay down (often called floating chairs). Having your knees bent at a 90-degree angle is always best.   Find a chair that reclines, has a headrest, and lets you bend your knees (even if the chair is flat and you have to bend your knees on your own without support). A chair with a cushion is a nice bonus.   Beach Chairs—Not Really Made for Working   Another thing to keep in mind is to watch your activities while in the beach chair. Getting in a little work on vacation may be necessary, and taking the laptop to the beach may seem fun, but being hunched over your electronics in a beach chair instead of being at a desk is a good way to strain your neck.   If You Do End Up Sore   If you do come home from vacation with an achy back, remember that Dr. Ward is always available for emergency visits. Less pain will make the transition from a beach chair back to an office chair a little easier to deal with.

  5. One of the hardest things to do at the beach is carry all your stuff to that perfect spot you pick out. Most people carry towels, coolers, floats, kids and some sort of chair to sit in.
