I was wondering if any of you ladies would be using anything like this for baby's first few months? Do you think its a good item to have? If not, what other options are you considering?
You'll use a PnP a lot just for travel (at least we do) if you travel by car and stay with friends/family. Most motels will provide one and I'd never pay to bring it on an airplane. That said, with DD#1 we thought we would have her in our room in the PnP to start out. It lasted about three hours and she was in her crib. We couldn't sleep with all the little noises she made and a monitor in her room was a better alternative for us. We've used it for travel, naps, time-outs and somewhere to keep baby when she's crawling and getting into stuff and you need her not to be! So, for us, the bassinet part was never used but the PnP was a good investment.
when i had my first son, i used his pack n play all the time and it was great for when we travelled to a friend's or family member's house.
the hubby and i are definitely getting one, especially to keep downstairs in the family room where we spend most of our family time. very convenient.
