My baby is 7 months old and i was wanting to be able to put him in something to play while im folding laundry etc. Do you put your baby in a pack n play? They seem so small that i hate to use it.

Yes, I do use ours. We have two, actually. One for the living room, for when I do things close, and a small one so I can move it around the house. She doesn't like to be far from me.

When I had my oldest, we used a pack n play with some toys and a sippy for her to play in. She enjoyed it. Sometimes she would nap in it as well. It was very helpful when I wanted to get something done. The majority of use came from using it as a bed when we travelled.

With our youngest, we never used one. We don't even own one anymore. She was/is occupied by her older sister, lol

I have one, that I received as a shower gift, but my daughter is 3 weeks old, and I have used her pack n play, yet.

My daughter hated it so I skipped it. I used to wear her or lay her on the floor to roll around and play with a few toys.

I use a pack n play if I need to get DD up off the floor for a few minutes during the day (Like to vaccuum or mop) or when SO and I are carrying in groceries or something occasionally. Other than that it doesn't get much use. Even when she's in it I don't leave her for more than 5 or 10 minutes.

We are supposed to be going to the lake soon though, and the pack n play will definitely be coming with. We usually go and stay all day with a big group of family and friends, so she will probably get passed around a lot, but in the event I need to contain her, I'd like to have the option available. Lol.
