Sleeping on the Go: Play Yards and Safety

by Katlyn Joy | November 18, 2011 12:00 AM

Play yards can be a godsend when you are traveling or baby is staying over for the night or weekend at Grandmas, or when you are visiting childless friends. However, there are some reasons to be cautious when buying or borrowing these baby items.

According to the Child Product Safety Commission, up to 20 million cribs and play yards are still in use or in storage which are considered unsafe. Before using a loaned item check to ensure your little one's safety.

Safety Standards

Proper Use of Play Yards

Baby Corner's Top Picks

1. Graco Pack 'N Play Play Yard with Bassinett.
This model features a changing table, diaper stacker, mobile, and a carrying bag for convenience sake. For ease of use, there is a push button fold on the play yard.

2. Graco Pack 'N Play Play Yard Circle Time.
This model boasts durability, simplicity in design and use with a push button fold and automatically folding feet and wheels for compact travel. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles such as a changing table or mobile, but for parents with slightly older infants this may well be a plus.

3. Graco Totblock Pack 'N Play.
This model is distinguished by its larger play space, measuring 38 inches square. Most play yards are smaller and rectangular. This model also features simple set up, easy folding and a carrying bag for toting simplicity. It also has four bug toys to keep baby entertained.
