Will you be taking your little one on overnights to see grandparents? Does your family like traveling and plans to continue after Junior’s arrival? When you’re at home, do you want to keep your baby near you? Or do you want your baby to nap during the day in a place other than the nursery? If so, the Graco Pack 'n Play might be just what you need.
The Pack ‘n Play Crib is perfect for on-the-go napping for the newborn as well as the older baby. While reading countless reviews, we found parents really appreciate this model’s convenience and versatility.
Weighing less than 20 pounds, it folds up compactly at the push of a button and fits into a carrying bag for travel and storage.
Its infant bassinet makes a cozy sleeping spot for the young baby. Adding to the coziness factor is the removable canopy with soft toys. When your child weighs more than 15 pounds and/or becomes able to push up on hands and knees (whichever comes first), simply remove the bassinet to open up the larger portable play yard/nap area.
Users also love that the Graco Pack 'n Play is lightweight, easy to move, and easy to assemble (both set-up and take-down). Many parents note this model–which is 20% smaller than traditional play yards–is space-efficient and great for fitting in tight quarters (e.g., apartments, hotel rooms, camp tents, etc.).
One short mother commented she can reach down to the bottom of the crib safely because this model is smaller than most play yards.
The Graco Pack 'n Play is easy to clean: simply use household soap and water to wipe down. A few users, however, don’t like that the bottom pad cover can’t be removed for washing. The carrying bag, though, is machine washable.
Also, if you take the crib to the beach (which you can!), be sure to shake all sand out of the play yard and carrying bag to prevent sand from clogging the wheels.
This play yard has an instruction manual as well as a limited one-year warranty from the date of initial purchase (sales receipt required for proof of purchase).
