Graco Pack-n-Play Reversible Napper Review/Giveaway

                                          We are planning for baby #3 in our house, with our first 2 we had been planning and trying for awhile so it seems we had everything together! Baby #3 was a pleasant surprise for us, we are thrilled!! While we are extremely excited we have SO much to do before his/her arrival (we find that out Friday). One thing I was stressing about was the fact that our youngest will just be 18 months old when this little one arrives, which means we will have 2 in a crib. I had been thinking how nice it would have been to have an extra pack-n-play (we keep our current one at my parents house) to keep the baby in for the first few months until our 2nd is ready for a toddler bed. SO I was thrilled to have the chance to receive a new Graco Pack-n-Play Playard with Reversible Napper & Changer to review.

    The Pack-n-Play Reversible Napper & Changer has some wonderful features:


  • NEW The first ever playard that has a Reversible Napper & Changer all-in-one.
  • Newborn Napper® station’s beautifully styled fabrics cuddle baby for naps - perfect to snuggle in
  • Changing table provides time-saving convenience so you don’t have to run to the nursery for diaper changes
  • Secure attachment allows for a safe and easy switch between napper and changer, and back again
  • The only playard designed to transition with your child as he grows from a newborn to infant to toddler
  • Easily converts to a portable playard
  • Toy bar features soft toys to amuse your little one
  • Changer features wipe clean fabrics that resist mess
  • Signature Graco push-button fold makes closing your playard quick and hassle-free
  • Removable, full-size bassinet provides an extra-comfy spot for your infant to nap
  • Airy mesh on all sides provides maximum ventilation
  • Convenient carrying bag for no-fuss travel and storage



This pack-n-play is available in several different patterns that are all so cute! I was sent the Gecko pattern, which I absolutely love!! I try to go neutral with our baby gear so we can use it with all of our children and the green in this patter is wonderful!

This pack-n-play arrived at the perfect moment, we were heading out that day to visit some friends for the weekend. Now my little guy is obviously too big for the napper part, but I was still excited to try out the pack-n-play with him. With our other pack-n-play (it is a different brand) I have always had two big complaints 1) it is so hard to set up and tear down  2)there is NO padding on the mattress. This pack-n-play outdid my expectations in those two areas. It was set up in literally a minute, when it came to tear down it was just as easy & my little guy slept wonderfully on it!
  Just yesterday I pulled this out again to set the whole thing up. The kiddos were napping so I thought it was the perfect time to try it. I honestly was prepared to be overwhelmed and a little stressed by the time I was done. I was happily wrong though!

The first thing I noticed when I pulled this out was that the directions are packaged to stick to the mattress. I love this!! I am always loosing the papers that go with different items because there is never a good spot to keep them, so the fact that these can stick right with the pack-n-play is wonderful!

   
  Now I hate when I have to admit my mindless moments....but I have to tell you, the thing that took me the longest was finding where the put the poles once I got the bassinet "sling" up.

 For about 5 minutes I was feeling this net to try and find some type of hole ....finally I had to call for my husband , he very quickly found it. :-/ And....then I forgot to take a picture...but they go right in those dark fabric spots.

  The only other thing I really struggled with was getting these poles through the plastic part for the napper/changer section, but after a couple tries they were in

  After that the rest of the napper was very easy to put together and get on the pack-n-play.

   

Lastly I put the toy bar on which is super cute!   

I love everything about this pack-n-play! The fact that the napper turns into a changing table with just the push of a button is genius!  

 I did have to take this down after taking my pictures, which was disappointing, but we are working on some house renovations before baby comes so we just don't have the room right now. I was amazed at how easily this all came down. It probably took me 5 minutes if not less.


I am so thrilled with this product and can not wait to use it when our baby arrives in September :) I would definitely recommend this pack-n-play to anyone looking to purchase one. It is sold for just $99.99 which I think is a great value for all the wonderful features included!




I am so excited to share this product with you and better yet Graco has been kind enough to offer one of you a Graco Pack-n-Play with Reversible Napper & Changer. Just fill out the entry form below! I will leave this open until Tuesday May 1st. Good Luck!

  1. Love the soho square. We desperately need a new one. Ours is a hand me down from 9 years ago my two boy cousins used as a baby then my three elder boys used this it is on our fourth boy and there are big holes in the netting so not safe any longer. :(

  3. Well, if I won and was able to choose a color, I would go with Forecaster. I really love bright colors so the orange in the pack-n-play would be right up my alley and it's still neutral so if we are lucky enough to have two kids, it will work with either girl or boy. :)

  26. I really like the Gecko and Starburst designs! We're due with our first in September, and even though he's a complete surprise because I have PCOS, we still like to keep gender neutral colors in case we get another wonderful blessing in a few years! I like how this is an all-in-one as well because first time moms need all the help they can get!


    P.S. I voted for you! :)

  75. Hi, I have the Providence color of this Pack and Play! We have found that it is EXTREMELY difficult to push the button down and lift that piece in order to flip the napper over to the changer. Do you have this problem too?? Anybody else?

    Besides that issue, I love it! Can't wait for baby to be here to use it!

    ReplyDelete
  76. No I have not had that problem, I found it extremely easy to do. I was able to do it using one hand
