When your little one needs a place to nap or play right away, there’s no more convenient solution than our Pack N Play Playard. Its durable frame makes it perfectly suited for travel. The signature Graco push-button fold allows you to break it down in seconds, and the automatically folding feet and wheels make it amazingly compact when folded. At home or away, your young one will have sweet dreams and comfy surroundings.
I bought this Pack N Play Playard because, even though I had decided I wanted to co-sleep with my son, I wanted something that he could nap in during the day. I didn’t want to spend the money and buy an expensive crib that he was only going to use a small majority of the time so I ordered this instead. I got it and put it together and it was super cute and went really well with my decor. It was also super easy to put up because all you have to do is snap all of the pieces into place and you don’t have to worry about screws or anything like that.
The bassinet insert made it really easy to put him down when he was a small baby because it wasn’t so far down into the playard. We used it until he was five months old. After that I started also letting him play in there and it really came in handy when I wanted to clean up or cook to just put him in there with some toys and let him entertain himself. I also like that the mesh sides prevent suffocation if he rolls into them.
I wish that it was easier to clean. I put a sheet on the pad so that if his diaper leaks or he spits up it doesn’t get everywhere but if a little mess does get on something then the most I can do to get rid of it is wipe it down with a wet cloth. This seems to clean it up well but it would be nice if there was a slipcover or something. The pad that comes with it is very flimsy and thin. I did not think that it was comfortable enough to let my baby nap in so I ordered a replacement mattress and that fixed the problem. If you don’t want to order the mattress you can always pad it with blankets.
This Pack N Play Playard has been a really nice convenience to have and I like the fact that it will last me until he’s into his toddler years. I will most likely hold onto this for my next baby and use it again because it has lasted remarkably well. I highly recommend this Playard to any parent. Even if it seems like kind of a waste of money now it will pay itself off in the long run.
