can you recomend a playard (twins)

I've read that for a while we'll really only need one until they are bigger but I'm thinking we'll regisiter for both and hope we get them as gifts. I'm registered at BRU and have gone to the store a few times and online, read reviews and I'm just stumped on whats the best one out there? I also noticed today some have a bumper some don't. I know that bumpers aren't safe in cribs, is this the same for a playard? I'm having twin boys so I'd like something sturdy enough to handle them when they are older. Please recomend if you have one you like, thanks!

:)

  • Do you mean a pack-n-play. The Graco models all get really good reviews and are all sturdy. Some of them have all kinds of bells and whistles, which you really don't need. I just picked out the cheapest PNP in a pattern I liked and registered for those. I don't know anything about bumpers in PNPs though. Never seen or heard of that.

    How do you plan on using it?

    I also got 2 Graco PnPs in a pattern I liked, and didn't need all the bells and whistles. 

    I use mine as cribs when we travel and occasionally to keep them contained- but that's few and far between.

    I wasn't even aware the mattresses on them varied that much.  I got a mattress pad cover that's thick to make them more cozy.

  • I would stick with a simple PNP without regard to the mattress. You can always buy a PNP mattress or you can buy the foam/eggcarton mattress tops and cut it to fit the PNPs. This will be much cheaper than buying a PNP with a good mattress....not sure if that exists either :) They all are pretty hard. the babies have never seemed to mind though.

    Here's the PNPs we have - http://www.walmart.com/ip/Graco-Pack-Play-Portable-Kensley/10769969 . I love them and so did all of the reviewers. The color is pretty and is versatile for both boys or girls.
