Do you guys get an extra mattress for the PNP? The ones I've looked at seem so thin and hard but then there are big warnings written on the PNP saying that using other mattresses can be a hazard.
We got DD one like this and it was perfect! I think we started her in it around 5-6 months? It was great for when I was getting ready in the morning and DH was in the shower, and (nerd alert) I loved that it has a book so she could start learning to turn the pages early!
Diaper pail dilemma... I know several of you have said you don't use one, but for those who do use a diaper bin or who plan to, I have heard good things about the Ubbi pail (esp. that you don't need special bags for it) but it costs ~$80. Seems like a lot! I've also heard bad things about the Diaper Genie. Would love to get opinions on both and alternatives.
Has anyone used the K'tan Breeze? I loved the K'tan while DS was 0-4mo (I used a mai tai style after that), but my only complaint is that it could get sort of hot over the summer unless both of us were dressed very lightly. The Breeze is supposed to be cooler, but I'm just not sure about the fabric. It looks slippery to me which seems less secure. I'd love to hear if anyone has first has experience with it!
this might be a really stupid question but... am I supposed to pre-wash my boppy pillow? I would think yes but then it seems like it could get ruined/misshapen in the washer/dryer.
Potentially silly questions..We're planning on having baby sleep in the Pack n Play bassinet for the first few months.I'm on Amazon and keep seeing PnP mattresses, sheets, blankets, etc. for sale.Does the PnP come with a mattress that can be used in the bassinet? I was under the impression that it does...and should I buy a special fitted sheet for it? Or would a regular crib sheet fit? Or something else?
@PYLWhammy, we're doing the same thing and I'm super confused about the mattress too. Someone told me that putting a mattress in the pack and play increases the risk of SIDS? But the bottom seems really thin. Can someone tell me what sheets/waterproof barrier they picked for their pnp?
Any feedback on Mamaroo's? I know they are pricey but I'm wanting to spare some space by not having to get a swing and a rock and play. Didn't know if anyone had one and liked it and had their LO nap in it? We have a pack and play with the bassinet on top already for our bedroom, but thinking of living room nap options (we have a godforsaken two-story).
We have an issue with our landlord giving us consistent heat, so being able to monitor the temps in the nursery is really important to us. I found this monitor with a temp gauge that will alert you if it's too cold or hot. Wondering if anyone has experience with this model, or suggestions for another that has a temp monitor??http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00E1CIGAE
