You really do not need one, no. They are nice if you travel or are staying at family who do not have a dedicated place for the baby to sleep.

You are going to spend $275 on a ticket to a baby expo?!?! I hope they are handing out gold pieces at the entrance. What does this thing entail that makes that ticket price worthwhile? I plan to use the pack n play more when the baby is mobile and I have to do things around the house like clean or cook and can’t have the baby running around.

I have 2 pack ‘n’ plays and never used either. I tried to put my son down in one when I was transitioning him from the rock ‘n’ play to his crib, and he HATED it, so I put it back in the basement.

A lot of people use them and love them, but I never did.

We love our Breeze and it’s way better than any other pack and play. I’ve been wanting a lilliebaby for awhile, and I’ve only read and heard good things about it. Which baby expo are you going to? That sounds awesome from the pictures/showcases I’ve seen from current baby expos. I’d definitely pay for that ticket… if only the expo came close to my location!!

I was worried that I would not use the pack and play much either but we use it pretty often.  It’s great when you need to take a shower or something and you want baby to stay in one place for awhile. We also use it when we visit grandma and grandpa overnight.  We just moved and were not able to put the crib together again right away so my son slept in his pack and play for about a week.  What is great about it is it comes together very quickly and easily.

My son only uses it when Im folding laundry and I give him no choice. He hates it!  

I don’t think you need it, especially if space is tight! I live in a 1700 sq ft, 3 bedroom house and I’m tripping over the stupid thing!

I use my breeze EVERYDAY.. WE HAve dogs and it’s one of the safe places we can put baby down in. It’s also so easy to put together, we went on vacation a few days ago and it was the quickest thing to pack. I believe it retailed for 300 so 275 seems like a deal If you were going to go anyways.

I use my pack n play every day since DD became mobile (she’s 10months now) I put her in it when I need her to stay in one spot, like when I go to the bathroom, shower, or need to get some chores done. We have a kitty that DD loves to pester, so I  always have to have an eye on DD.
