A Baby Gear Fave.

April 13, 2016

baby boy


Is it just me, or does baby gear just keep getting better each year? We have used the same pack n’ play for all three children, and it did just fine! However, when I opened this Fisher Price Day & Night play yard, I decided it was time for a trade in. This was just what I needed for our current stage with Rocco. We don’t currently have a room for him so he has been in ours since he was born! He outgrew his bassinet, and there is no room for a full sized crib next to my bed. Needless to say I was extremely happy to find a compact play yard that is also spacious and practical. It has the sleep/play area with padded mat, as well as a detachable inclined sleeper for my lazy lounger. He loves to keep mom in eyes view, but I can no longer leave him on the bed since he rolls around.

I bring this with us for travel as well because it is super light and easy to collapse. Since we travel pretty frequently the portability is a major perk as it is only 15 pounds, and folds up pretty small. It has a carry pocket attached on the side for storage as well as a removable changing station for diaper time. The other day, Rocco spent a good hour sitting up in the play yard with a few toys, babbling up a storm while I was trying to get ready for an event. I’d say he likes his new dwelling place. This play yard is available for purchase here.

  • I have a little roommate too. I’d love to give him his own space, other than with his feet in my face. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Is this contest open to Canadian readers, too?? I could really use this – our hand-me-down pack n play is on its last legs.

  • Nicole B

    We are expecting our first baby and this is on my wish list! I love the detachable sleeper and this will fit perfectly in our small space.

  • We are just getting brave enough to travel with our first baby and we’d love something nice and lightweight to make it easier!

  • i would love this for our upcoming trip

  • We’ve had the same pack n play for all 4, but I would love a second travel crib with baby #5 on the way!

  • I’ll be having another little roommate come September and this would be ideal to have!

  • Baby #2 due in October, and since we live in 2 bedrooms, this one will be in our room much longer than the first.

  • Jennifer Lee Appleton

    This would be great to win for baby #2, due in August! My son stayed in our room until he was 6 months old and finally transitioned to his crib ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Emily Lindsey

    Would love to win and gift away to an expecting mom! We just moved our 7 month old into his own room and he slept by my side of the bed in a little pack ‘n play. It was very useful!

  • My husband & I plan to travel this summer in celebration of our wedding anniversary. It will be our first overnight trip with the little one – this would be perfect!

  • It will be for my nephew!

  • I just had baby#2 so I’m constantly no if around the house as my 20 month old plays up and downstairs. It would be great to have a play place for my 6 week old upstairs that’s safe in case I need to run downstairs at all. Big sister loves to love on him and tries to pick him up ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I love that it’s not huge! Thanks for bringing this product to my attention… We managed to do without a playard for baby #1 but I don’t think that will be an option for baby 2, especially with all those tempting tiny toys around!

  • Laura Holmes

    Oh I just love this! We def need one of these for traveling back and forth from St. Louis to Louisville this next year!

  • Tina Powell

    Amazing how the play yards have changed…so nice when you have little space.

  • Due with my first in July and I think this would be an amazing thing to check off my list ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hoping to go on vacation soon and this would be perfect to bring with us!

  • Meredith

    This thing is awesome!! My baby just turned 1, but my sister is due with her second in October – it is crazy how many more wonderful things have come out even since I had my baby last May!

    this would be the perfect gift for my sisters baby shower!

  • Love this!! Been eyeing up the play yard from Guava Family for our little guy, and this one is so much more affordable!!

  • Abby Allen

    My sister is pregnant with her first child and I’d like to gift her with this!

  • I would love to win this for our first baby girl coming in August and all the traveling we do!

  • This looks great for traveling for baby #3 on the way!!

  • I would love to win this for when my tiny nieces and nephew come to visit!

  • I’ve always been a little annoyed at the weight of pack n plays. 15 lbs. Is a dream!!

  • We are trying for our first child so I would love this for when we get pregnant!

  • Cristina

    I would love to win this for Baby #2 on the way! This looks like a great upgrade to our previous pack n play – I love seeing all the new things that have come out since we had our first 2 years ago!

  • elizabeth contreras

    I would love to win this as we have 4 kids in a small 3 bedroom and we are very limited with space. I am always looking for way to use the remaining space we have more efficiently.

  • I could really use this! We are sharing our room with out our 9 month old in a big crib. This would save a lot of space!

  • Nicole Rankin

    I am expecting a little one come August and have been eyeing a pack and play since we don’t have much space for a crib! This would be such a good solution for us!

  • Well, hopefully my husband and I will have babies sometimes soonish, but until then we have plenty of tiny friends who visit us from time to time and this would be handy.

  • I’d love a new one! Our old Pack and play is just huge -and heavy!

  • Michelle H

    Our little guy is not loving sleeping in his own room, so he sleeps in our bed for now. I’d love a way to have him close, but still get some freedom to move around.

  • Van Nguyen

    I’m having a baby in September. I plan to keep the baby in a bassinet next to my bed at night. This is a perfect solution for those first few months before a crib.

  • Nicole Huckins

    We’re expecting baby #5 who will be rooming in with us and this would be perfect! I LOVE the inclined sleeper!

  • Jess Inskeep

    The specs of this pack-n-play are so great! The portability makes it a game changer. Expecting my first in July and this would be one of those pieces we would be able to get so much use out of. Hope I win ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Rebecca N

    I’m expecting my second baby in a couple of months and having just moved to a new (but small!) house, I’m looking to downsize/streamline baby gear as much as possible. This looks great!

  • Rochel S

    This should be perfect for travelling

  • Liz Ticona

    I hope to win because I have a 7 month old baby boy who needs this! ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t have a crib for him, so it’d be perfect to put him in for naps and sleep and also during those times that I need 1 minute to myself. Right now I have no place to put him unless his father is at home when he can hold him. crossing fingers!!!!

  • This is a great idea! My little guy sleeps in our bed now, but is starting to roll, and not quite ready for his crib in the other room. This would be a perfect transition!

  • Just found out we’re expecting our third!

  • This pack n play looks amazing! I love the sleek and modern design of it!


  • I’d love to replace our old port a crib with this one!

  • Meredith Williams

    Baby #3 is due in September and we have run out of room in our current home too! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just saw this on Amazon and thought it looked perfect! I would be so excited to win!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Our first baby is arriving this summer and I know this would be perfect – functional and not bad to look at either!

  • We’re expecting our first in the middle of summer and I have no idea what we’ll need. I’ll take any experienced mom’s recommendations! ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Thanks for all these awesome giveaways!

  • This looks awesome. Baby #2 is on the way, and I’m going to need a way to protect him/her from a very enthusiastic big sister! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • My little guy loves to see mommy while he’s sleeping. We’re moving in to a 1 bedroom apartment soon while we renovate our new to us house. So this little playard would be perfect for us!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Would love to win! We are trying to concieve and live in a small space, so this would be perfect for baby! Plus I’d let my sister use it until we need it!!!!!! I can’t believe it is so light.

  • This sounds perfect since we don’t currently have much space for the baby we are expecting?

  • It looks comfortable for the baby and small enough to transport anywhere.

  • This would be awesome to have for my newborn. We visit my parents every weekend and don’t have a sleeping spot for our little guy so this seems amazing!

  • L LeBlanc

    Looks awesome so practical! Who will love it more, mom or baby?

  • Although hubby and I aren’t currently planning for kids, it’d be nice to get a head-start on gear before then! This sleeper/play yard looks really cool and handy to have! And if all else fails, if I won and we don’t have kids, I’d have a super cool baby shower gift for somebody!

  • Kayla shumaker

    This would’ve been so perfect when my mother suffered a ruptured brain aneurysm and nearly lost her life. I was in a hotel 3 hours from home, for over 2 weeks. The hotel’s “playpens” were filthy! You could clearly see where other babies had thrown up all over them. My square play yard was too heavy (and I didn’t have the room in my car) to constantly transport back and forth. This would’ve been a life saver! She currently still has too aneurysms that need to be repaired.

  • traci smith

    Would love to have this at my house for granddaughter! It is perfect!
