I have a travel lite pack ‘n play, which has a bassinette height and fits in our very small space. We live in a 2 bdrm, and the other bdrm was made into a nursery that we never use because LO is still with us at 6 months old.

There are minicribs.

But, pack n plays can work fine. The day care we used had those instead of cribs. At home we used a pack n play for the first 6 months and I bought a mattress insert to make it softer. I don’t know if they sell those any more. It was 7 years ago.

@missjewels:  I’d personally do a mini crib over a pack ‘n play for a longer term option. I’m sure if you got the mattress insert for the PnP it would work just fine, though!

We live in a one bedroom and we have a pack n play that has a bassinet and changing area. Our LO sleeps in the bed with us though because she refuses to sleep alone. Being in the same room  as the parents is recommended for the first 6 months anyway, so you should be fine.

We use the pack and play at in-laws and the cottage and its totally fine. I would recommend bassinet option for first 4-6 months.
