"When my husband and I first stayed in hotels with our 2-year-old, he'd wake up at all hours and think it was time to play. We now pack a pop-up tent and set it up in a corner with books, a blanket, and a few small stuffed animals. The tent folds down to a 14-inch circle and weighs about a pound. My son has his own "room" when we vacation, and we all get to sleep through the night!" —Geri Kronyak, Boonton, N.J.
