One great accessory that a parent can purchase for their child, especially when they are traveling, is the pack and play crib. These are great for play time use as well as getting the child to bed. There are many benefits and features that soon to be parents and current parents as well can find about this wonderful crib.
Some of the pros that come along with pack and play cribs can be quite numerous. Some of them include that they are cheaper than buying a regular size, wooden crib for your child. This option has become very popular for new mothers because not only can they move it to wherever they are located but they can keep their child in it for a couple years until the child is able to leave the crib. Another benefit is that they are easily able to be packed up and brought to grandparent’s house or other locations. Although they may be a little bulky when taken down for travel the pro outweighs this because it allows for safe overnight travel and sleeping for the baby.
The cons would be that the child will out grow the pack and play in a couple of years. Sometimes if the parents have an adventurous and a rambunctious child then it could be even less. When this time comes then they will need to purchase new sleeping accommodations for the child which can mean another expense added on.
Some benefits that a pack and play can give both the parents and the child are numerous. Not only do some pack and plays feature a bassinet, some have a changing table which makes it convenient for the parents. A parent should know that the mattresses that their child will be sleeping in with a pack and play are firm and are secure so there is hardly any chance for injuries that parents who own cribs can worry about.
Another great benefit of a pack and play crib is that it is easy to pack up and go for a visit to a friend or a grandparent’s house. This is especially helpful if the child does not like sleeping in new locations because the parent will always have their bed with them. Another benefit is not only is it a bed for the child but it can also double as a play area for the child as well.
