  • I used one with my twins for about the first 3 months. I was able to put it next to my bed, so it was convenient. At 3 months I moved them to their cribs, but I kept the pack n play set up in my room for nights when one of them was sick or having sleeping issues. It worked very well for us.

  • I think some moms prefer a regular bassinett because you can more easily move it from one room to another. Also, I thought I would get a lot of use out of the pack n play after we stopped using it for them to sleep in, but we only used it 2 or 3 times after they were about 5 or 6 months. Now it just takes up space.

  • I used it for when we were in the living room hanging out and stuff until he was about 3 months ish. Then he got too heavy for it and tried to sit up so it scared me. Now we only use the pack n play when we go on trip places. We threw the bassinet part out.

  • i used it for a crip for the beginning. not the changing table part, but how you have it set up with the bottom of it only like 6 inches from the top of the pack n play (does that make sense?). i liked it better than the crib cuz you could wobble it and kind of rock the baby to sleep in it if he was having trouble.

  • We used it as a bassinet for the first few months. It is more functional than getting an actual bassinet because he now uses it as a playpen and he sleeps in the bottom part when we travel.
