Rated 3 out of 5 by kslmom just ok
We've been using the bassinet feature for our newborn, and realistically, that's really all we need. The napper feature was a pain to install and take off every time, and we didn't like using it because our 6 pound baby would slide down to the bottom of the napper. The changing pad is ok, but also a bit of a pain because it is slightly tilted and baby keeps on rolling to one side from the tilt. We don't use the mp3 or vibration features at all. In sum, we should have gotten a simpler playard for less money.

This was one of our first purchases when we were expecting our first (3). It was simple to use and at night we used it as a bassinent during the first month. Our second child (10 weeks) slept in the napper wonderfully for naps. I loved the night light it offered just enough light to see for those middle of the night diaper changes ams feedings without disturbing my husband too much. We had a hard time figuring out the vibration mode but it probably was user error instead of company error. Once we finally figured it our oldest loved it and our second is not s fan of the vibration. The diaper holder is rather large and holds a box of disposable diapers easily. O can also fit burp cloths, blankets. Wipes, and other sites perfectly. We have this print in elephanta and u believe its been weeded out because I cannot find it. I love that it has lasted three years with periodical use. Especially when the older child uses it as a teepe . Highly reccomend .

The vibrating piece broke within the 1st month of having this playard. The nightlight is not bright enough to be able to see baby in the dark. The newborn napper is a great idea, but not engineered well. My son's head seems to decline (his head is lower than his feet) and he has acid reflux so he needs to be inclined a bit. The sun shade on the newborn napper also comes off easily. The changing station is also a great idea, but it would be nice if it was attached and able to be moved out of the way when not in use (some of the other brands have this option). Also the diaper stacker is not constructed well. It's very flimsy and it comes off easily. I would not purchase this again nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jaba16 Great features.
I bought this for my baby that is due in a few weeks. It is very simple and easy to understand how to put it together. I do not like that the rods that go in the infant sleeper are hard to get apart once you have put them together and into the pack 'n play, but not impossible to get apart. I also do not like that there is no way to store the infant sleeper or the changing table and shelves on the side of the pack 'n play. I will have to carry them separately if I want to take them with me anywhere.
I like that I could do it all on my own in about 10 minutes and didn't need any help with it. It is very light weight too.
I know I will get a lot of use out of this pack 'n play because my husband and I travel a lot to see family.

We received this as a baby shower gift from a family member. It was fairly simple to put together. We utilize the napper for daytime napping and our daughter sleeps quite well in the comfy, slightly elevated sleeping area. The changing table could use some improvements. My little one tends to "roll" to one side of the table when placed in it. I haven't gotten to use the bassinet or larger playyard yet, but it would be nice if the changing table would flip to the side for more room in the bassinet when she outgrown the napper. (The changing table is good up to 30 lbs, but the napper is limited to 15lbs.) Overall, it's a good product so far.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Great Product with Problems
I love and still use this Pack n Play. We live in a one bedroom apartment, so this was a great product to combine a crib, bassinet, and changing table all in one. As others have said, the newborn napper is EXTREMELY difficult to take on and off, so don't plan on switching it out frequently. However, for long term use, it is amazing. My newborn loved to sleep in it, day and night. When she was two months old, we switched her to the bassinet level, which she also loved. Now, at eight months old, she is at the bottom level, where she will be for another year or so! This was definitely a great investment for us.
The changing table is awesome, and we are still using it. However, the side compartment is completely useless. It is flimsy and holds nothing more than a few diapers. Don't plan on using it. Actually, the only reason I paid more for this model was for the side compartment. If i could do it again, I would buy one of the cheaper models that has a newborn napper and changing station, but without the storage. It's not worth the money because it's literally useless.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Expecting Dad Sturdy Playard
We received this playard as a shower gift. It is very easy to set up. We plan to use the sturdy-feeling bassinet as the baby's full-time sleep space for the first few months. The mattress pad also vibrates, which should be soothing for the baby (though the vibrating mechanism is loud without any weight on it). The playard comes with a number of useful features such as a nightlight and song/nature noise machine.
Because we plan to use the bassinet full-time, the napper and changing pad attachments will not be as useful to us as we had anticipated. They are very difficult to snap on and off, and are useful only if attached to the playard permanently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mjdavis1 Easy assembly
Assembly for the overall product was pretty easy. We had to re-insert a few poles once or twice,but not bad. (Which could also be do more to tired user error than anything else). We have noticed two issues; on the changing pad if the fabric flaps are over the corners the poles for the changing pad don't want to lock in place or stay locked if you get them locked. We rolled up the fabric on the corners so it doesn't cover the buttons on the poles and it fixed that issue. The other issue is with the canopy on the napper. It doesn't attach very well with the clips and can become detached when bumped and you can't adjust it forward or backwards. It's either fully on or off. Other than these two minor issues we are extremely happy with the product and would recommend it to others.
