Parents are using different names when they talk about a playpen. However, the playpen is the name used to designate an enclosed area when your baby can play safely. ... On the other hand, most playards comes with a mattress and can be used for sleeping. The most popular brand name of playard is the Pack 'n Play by Graco.
Pediatricians generally consider play yards, such as the Graco Pack 'n Play, a safe every-night sleep environment for babies. Play yards are subject to new Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) standards approved in 2012 and therefore might be the safest choice.
If you visit a Montessori Infant classroom, you will find that there are no “containers.” That is, there are no cribs, playpens, pack n plays, bouncers, walkers, or anything that you would put a child IN. This is because Maria Montessori studied the value of freedom of movement in the development of the young child.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, this is the safest position for babies to sleep in. C – in a crib: Babies should sleep in a crib or Pack 'n Play. An unsafe sleep environment for babies means: Sleeping in a bed or crib with others (adults and siblings)
A crib is a (relatively) permanent fixture and can't be moved. Pack 'n plays are smaller (and have a smaller sleeping surface) and are portable. Pack 'n plays can double as a play pen or play area. Cribs are more expensive (but also far more decorative)
Pack 'n Play or Travel Crib A Pack 'n Play is a product so many families have, and it can work well for sleep in many travel situations. A Pack 'n Play works for a variety of ages, from infants up to toddler up to about 30 pounds.
So can a baby sleep in a playpen instead of a crib? Yes, but it depends on the type of playpen. If the playpen comes with a mattress, your baby can usually sleep in it, if not it usually means it's not meant for sleeping. Some manufacturers will tell you if the playpen can be used for sleeping or not.
As with most developmental milestones, it is “normal” for crawling to happen at any point across a fairly wide span of time—anywhere from 6 to 10 months of age. (Remember, some children skip crawling altogether!)
A bassinet will SAVE YOUR LIFE when you first bring baby home and need to keep a close eye on him. Bassinets that rock or vibrate are especially helpful for tough sleepers. A pack 'n play will better serve you as baby grows and you need a playpen, changing station, and more rolled into one.
Most Pack 'n Plays have a bassinet attachment in the top, so it can be used as a sleeper from the earliest days. With the bassinet, the baby is higher up so they are easier to reach. As your baby grows, you can use the lower portion of the Pack 'n Play as a travel crib.
Just like the style of the mattress, the fit is so important. Most pack n plays are made to roughly the same size (~37″ x 27″), but there tends to be a small difference of 1/2 inch to an inch between each so double check before buying.
Your baby should rest in a crib, co-sleeper, or bassinet that is free of everything except your baby. That means no bumper pads, quilts, blankets, pillows, soft toys, positioning devices, or reachable toys with strings. Make sure the mattress is firm, and always use a tightly fitted sheet.
