Graco Pack ‘n Play: Keep Baby Clean & Comfy

Graco Pack n Play Clean and Comfy

One baby gear item that I think every family needs is a Pack ‘n Play. The Graco Pack ‘n Play will keep your baby clean and comfy, no matter where you go. The Pack ‘n Play has come a LONG way from those play yards that we used to have when we were babies.

Graco Pack n Play

The Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard Smart Stations I was sent is a serious Pack ‘n Play! It comes with an infant travel bed insert, a gear organizer, and a changing table with a diaper station! We are going camping in two weeks and are bringing the infant travel bed with because it’s much lighter than the bringing the entire Pack ‘n Play and it folds flat which will make it easy to pack in the car to go.

Graco Pack 'n Play Diaper Station

You can tell BabyQ wasn’t feeling all that great when I was taking these pictures. She had a slight fever and wasn’t feeling herself. ­čÖü The diaper station has a place to put wipes, diapers, and other little things like diaper rash cream that you may need to change your baby. The┬áPack ‘n Play Playard Smart Stations is a great solution for when you first bring baby home and you want her to stay in your room so she can be close by. It has all those cubbies to hold extra clothes, burp clothes, and whatever else you may need.┬á

Sound and Lights for Graco Pack 'n Play Playard Smart Stations

The Graco┬áPack ‘n Play Playard Smart Stations also comes with a little system that you can clip on the side to play music and vibrations. There is a little box that sits under the portable infant bed that plugs into that side system so that you can add vibrations to the bed to sooth your baby. It also as a soft night light option so that you can look in on the baby.┬á

Pack n Play without changing table

If you take off the changing table, you have even more storage underneath! There is definitely no shortage of storage in the Graco┬áPack ‘n Play Playard Smart Stations.

Infant Bed Graco

BabyQ was also fascinated by the hanging stars that are there for the baby to play with. The toy bar is easily removed. The infant bassinet uses the bottom of the Pack ‘n Play as it’s base.

Playing Pack n Play

As baby gets bigger, you can remove everything off the top and use the Pack ‘n Play to keep the baby safe in your house or while you are traveling. The Pack ‘n Play Playard Smart Stations┬áis also great for when you have someone visit with a baby or small child that still takes naps. You can set it up in another room and let them take a nap without taking over your crib.

My only issue with the system is that once you are done with all the pieces on top of the┬áPack ‘n Play Playard Smart Stations, there is no easy way to store all the pieces. The┬áPack ‘n Play itself folds up nicely into a travel bag to store and travel with. The Graco┬áPack ‘n Play Playard Smart Stations is sold at Babies R Us and comes in 3 different color patterns for $219.99.

    Thanks for the review. My daughter is preganant with her third child and this is the only thing she asked me for ­čśë

  2. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says:

    When my boys were babies, I had a Graco Pack & Play. We got a lot of use out of that.

  3. I love this! My sister had something similar to this when her son was little, but it wasn’t nearly as well made, and it was extremely difficult to convert.

  7. I love this! Graco is a great company, and anytime you can use your baby contraptions for more than one thing, it’s a big plus.

    I can not believe how fancy and advanced baby products are. When my kids were little, playpens and baby swings were so basic. I love seeing all the new stuff. Thanks for the great review.

  19. Oh my! The Graco Pack & Play looks very nice. I had one when my kids were babies, but they’ve come a long way in 20 years. It’s beautiful and looks so comfy. Baby seems to like it too – such a cutie! ­čÖé
