5-10 minutes?! How are you supposed to be getting anything done? I think if she’s happy and it sounds like you two are getting lots of time out and about doing other things you’re totally fine. If anything, at least now you’re conscious of how much time she’s in there, but really, I think 5-10 minutes is a little absurd! Why even bother? It sounds like you two have great days, I wouldn’t worry about it.

Um, I’m no child expert but if she’s content to chill out in the Pack n Play for a while, I say let her. 5 – 10 minutes seems kind of ridiculous.

Thats the only way to get anything done and it sounds like you are doing alot of other things with your child as well. 

But, to answer you question the days I don’t have school we play and when I need to clean I put him in the exersacuer or walker and talk to him while I do things. Indepdent play is imporant

What is the reasoning behind this 5-10 minute rule?

No that is silly to me!  My niece had a large pack and play in the living room and she loved being in it with her toys while mom cooked/folded laundry.  I plan to do the same thing with our little one.  They need to be independent and we need a break too.

Besides if you only put them in it for 5-10 mins a day then what’s the point of having it at all?

They say that about everything! Swings, chairs, play pens. I think it’s completely ridiculous. If my baby’s happy in his swing I’m not going to be in a hurry to take him out and upset him.
