graco logoThe Graco brand is familiar to all new moms, and for good reason.  From the award-winning infant car seat to swings and playards, Graco offers a variety of necessary products for babies and beyond. I’m really excited to share the Pack ‘n Play Playard with Newborn Napper as part of the All About Baby series. It’s the most complete Pack ‘n Play I’ve ever seen and adjusts to suit your needs from newborns through young toddlers.

About the Pack ‘n Play with Newborn Napper

Observing a mother’s instinct to cuddle and protect her newborn baby inspired us to create the Pack ‘n Play Playard with Newborn Napper station. This is the only playard designed to meet your child’s needs as he grows from a newborn to an infant to a toddler. The Newborn Napper’s soft, cushy fabrics make it the perfect nap spot for your new arrival. For parents, the changing table means no additional trips to the nursery.

Video Review

To Buy or Not to Buy

To Buy… As I mentioned in the video, we had an older model Pack ‘n Play (about three years old) that is still in great shape. However, this model is far superior in a couple respects: the mattress has noticeably more cushion, there are more ways to secure the mattress in place and the addition of the completely cozy Newborn Napper. The Pack ‘n Play is ready to go for holiday travel with an included travel bag. The size is the ideal compromise – big enough for young toddlers to sleep but small enough to travel and be unobtrusive in any room in the house.

Or Not to Buy… I appreciate the travel bag, but it is a little lackluster. It just seems a bit flimsy compared to the other materials on the Pack ‘n Play and the weight of the Playard. The instructions were a bit confusing at points and the illustrations didn’t clarify much, particularly when installing the changing table and Newborn Napper.

Shop! The Graco Pack ‘n Play with Newborn Napper’s suggested retail price is $149.99 and is available for purchase at Graco’s website and in Babies R Us stores nationwide. (It’s currently on sale for $138 at Amazon.com.
