If you need a new mattress i would either buy a whold new on or contact graco like everyone else says. If you are just looking for it to be more comfortable because i know they aren't, i bought at Babies R Us a quilted pack and play mattress cover. Not just the thin cover. It's quilted which makes it feel like your baby is lying ona cloud. And it's safe. My son would never on the hard sheet but as soon as i put on the quilted one, he never had a problem. Just an idea
hi – i was looking at your tutorial and im kinda confused (doesnt take much these days LOL) … I wanted to sew some flannel packNplay sheets for my friends new baby.. and they measured the mattress in thier playard.. the top of it was 26″x35″ .. so.. . Im lost as to how much extra i cut the materail, and how many inches to make the corners… the packNplay mattress is NOT thick at all, so I wonder if I have make the corner cut-outs 4″ ???
What would you do?
If you feel that you need a better mattress Dream On MeFoam Graco Pack and Play Mattress fits perfectly this model. But again, the one that comes with it is totally appropriate for infant. You might consider buying different mattress when you child is around one year old.
I recently went on vacation to Myrtle Beach, SC and brought my 10 month old son's pack N play for him to sleep in. I bought a quilted pack N play mattress cover by Eddie Bauer (got it in )which is sooo much more comfortable than just the hard mattress. I put the sheet over it and he sleeps fine on it.
Hope this helps!!
