Pack N Plays with Bassinet Level for Co Sleeping Use

Updated on August 30, 2010

I am looking for a pack n play with a bassinet level so I can use it as a co sleeper next to the bed. I measured from the floor to the mattress and it's about 25 to 26 inches. Does anyone know of a specific brand that would be compatible? It's pretty overwhelming to me right now so I thought I'd ask. I would like to find a small to medium pack n play as we already have a really big one but does not have a bassinet feature.

What can I do next?

I agree that the arms reach co-sleeper is great, however it is VERY expensive. The standard Graco Pack-n-Play has a bassinet and a mobile that is approx the same size as a co sleeper and you can find them new for $80ish and used for $15-20.
Congrats on the baby!!

I have a Graco Travel Lite that is 1/3 smaller than the original version. It has a bassinette in it and we use it in our room. I don't keep it directly against the bed, but it is no more than 2 steps away and it works out great for us. I know they sell them at Targe and Babies R Us.

you need arms reach mini cosleeper!!!!!!!!!



answers from Kansas City on

i agree with the arm's reach co-sleeper. I got one for my third child and we love it!



answers from Cleveland on

Look into the "Arms Reach Co-Sleepr". They have two sizes. The full size is close to size of a pack and play or there is a smaller one that is closer to the size of a bassinet (though I think it may be slight larger). I have the full size and love it!

You need an Arm's Reach Bedside CoSleeper. Comes in mini size too. I don't know of any other safe co-sleepers out there, that actually attach to the mattress like the Arm's Reach one. It has a strap that goes under your mattress that keeps the co-sleeper snug to the mattress. I had one and Loved it.



answers from Dallas on

i have a graco that is really small & has the bassinet feature, but for the last baby I looked on craigslist & found a wooden bassinet that rocked & it was only $50! I loved it! & then when i was done with it i resold it on craigslist. if you can find a good bassinet i recommend it, because i loved it more than the packnplay bassinet, because it seemed more like a baby bed, it seemed more comfy & sturdier. i actually hated to sell it, but i just dont have any place to store it.



answers from Columbia on

search the web for co-sleeper, we had a nice small one with 2 level adjustment for the sleeping surface, firm and securely strapped onto the bed's mattress or box spring. I don't recall the brand name. also search craig's list for good used ones.


answers from Kokomo on

I don't have advise on what kind to get but where. Look on your local craigslist. There are always pack and plays w/ the bassinet feature, a well as lots of bassinets and some co-sleepers for very cheap. Great price for something you don't use very long. I just got a very clean one, with many extras for $20.



answers from Kansas City on

I know that if you have a graco pack n play, you usually can order the bassinet to attach directly from them (and then you know it will fit). Check our their website or call them. They'll direct you.

I think you're just looking for a co-sleeper. Some of them can also be used as playpens. I don't know if it works the other way around where a pack-n-play comes with an upper level for co-sleeping...?

this is what I have used: the Co-Sleeper >>
