Review: Graco Pack N Play with Newborn Napper and Changing Table

Published 00:00 am

I bought this product as a temporary crib, as for her first few months, our daughter would be sharing our bedroom, and a standard crib would overcrowd things. This piece is a standard playard, with a bassinet, newborn napper and changing table. I bought the Pack N Play when my daughter was already a month old (she used a regular bassinet initially), so she was only able to use the newborn napper for a couple months before she outgrew it, but this component of the product was great for the short time we were able to use it.

The fabric was very soft, it had a shade over the top so light from another room wouldn't wake her, and it snuggled her perfectly. I believe it helped her sleep better at night. Also, the Pack n Play included a device that vibrated and played music or nature sounds. The vibration piece can be moved from the napper to the bassinet. My daughter loved the nature sounds, particularly the ocean noises, and the vibration. If put in her bed drowsy, these usually helped her fall asleep quickly.

The changing table was also useful. It was strong enough to hold her, even at 16-17 pounds. It wipes clean easily if necessary, and most changing table pads fit on it perfectly. The storage bins on the side of the playard are an added bonus, particularly in combination with the changing table: you can use the space to hold diapers, cream, etc.. The changing table fits side by side with the newborn napper, so no need to ever remove it if you aren't using the playard or bassinet yet.

However, when your baby switches from napper to bassinet, the changing table has to be removed whenever the baby is in the bassinet. While it is not overly difficult to remove and put back, it's a minor inconvenience so I usually changed her on our bed, with her changing pad. We definitely got more use out of the changing table when we didn't have to constantly remove it and put it back.

The bassinet worked great for her to sleep in. As the vibration component could be moved, this again came in handy for easing our baby to sleep. It was also great for middle of the night wakings, when she didn't need a bottle, but to be eased back to sleep. It is large enough for her to spread out comfortably, but small enough that it didn't take up too much space in our bedroom.

The playard is also great for some playing alone time when I need to run to the bathroom, or make dinner. My daughter is content in here for a little while with some toys.

For some reason, there were no directions in the box. I eventually found them on the bottom of the mattress, but initially had to locate them online, and this was a bit of a pain. Although set up was pretty easy, a regular instruction pamphlet in the box would have made it even easier. When it came time to remove the bassinet, it only took a minute or two. Packing up the Playard to go to Grandma's is also pretty easy and only takes a moment or two.

My only other complaint, besides the confusing location of the directions, is that for some reason the button to turn off the vibration piece stopped working. I have to unplug it from the control piece on the side of the playard to turn it off. This isn't difficult at all and takes no longer than just pressing the button, but I feel like for the cost of this product, the button should work. Otherwise, the vibration/sound component is great.

The battery in the vibrating piece lasts approximately two months, after using it for at least 30 minutes daily. Some of the nature sounds are unappealing - I can't imagine parrots squawking is a great way to ease a baby to sleep - but there are a couple that are great, and we just stick to using those.

Overall, this was a great investment from our baby. She was able to use it from one month old, and we will continue to get use out of it for the next year or so, as a playard. Despite my two minor complaints, I'm very happy with this product, and give it a 9/10.
