3 Best Mattress for Graco Pack N Play
We spent 18 hours putting these mattresses through their paces and reading reviews to pull together our recommendations below.
1. Folding Pack-n-play Mattress by Sproutwise Kids
The Folding Pack-n-play Mattress by Sproutwise Kids is one of the best folding pack and play mattresses that we’ve tested.
Ideally suited for infants six months and up, the Folding Pack-n-play Mattress by Sproutwise Kids features a 2 inch thick natural latex foam core which is covered in a layer of soft organic cotton.
What I really like about this folding mattress is that not only is it hypoallergenic it’s also lead and BPA free meaning it’s free from chemicals and not going to be bad for baby but you can tell that real thought has been put into the design with covers easy to zip off and clean.
When you’re on the move, the mattress itself easy to fold down and pack into the carry case making it quick and easy to pack into the car when you’re travelling.
At 38 inches long and 25 inches wide, the Folding Pack-n-play Mattress by Sproutwise Kids will fit the Graco Pack N Play without leaving gaps at the side.
While foam mattresses can get hot, we tested this mattress during a balmy New York summer and it didn’t ever become too warm.
2. Dream On Me Foam Pack and Play Mattress
It was a tough call to only place the Dream On Me Foam Pack and Play Mattress into second as this really is a fantastic product that any parent would be wise to buy!
American made with a 10% Vinyl / 90% foam mix, the Dream On Me Foam Mattress comes with a Antibacterial, waterproof lock stitched binding which unlike traditional cotton stitching helps prevent mold, mildew and odor from seeping inside.
Safety is taken care of thank to the 16 CFR 1632 /1633 Federal Flammability Standards as well as ASTM Standards.
The Dream On Me Foam Pack and Play Mattress mattresses are pthalates and lead free and comes with a 10 year limited warranty against manufacturer’s defects and materials.
In our tests, this fit the Graco Pack N Play perfectly, however it’s worth noting that you do have use port a crib sheets (and we’ve listed some great options below:
3. Graco Premium Foam Crib and Toddler Mattress in a Box
No list would be truly complete without mentioning the suppliers own product and in this case it’s the Graco Premium Foam Crib and Toddler Mattress in a Box.
As you’d expect from a brand as big as Groco this is a premium product made to the very highest standards.
So what do we like about this product?
Firstly, we really like that it comes in a box. This can seem like a gimmic but there’s just something fun about watching it unfold and expand over a period of time.
Next, we like that you can tell that someone with children has designed this with a number of excellent features such as:
- Breathable foam – the mattress has been designed in layers which help circulate air keeping your little one cool.
- Water-resistant cover – as a parent you know that accidents happen and the fact that the soft water=resistant outer cover is removable and hand-washable is extremely beneficial.
- Just right firmness – okay, this one might be a bit of bias for our infant but she found the softness of the mattress to have that “Goldielocks factor” – not to firm and not too soft.
- Fit – as you’d expect, the Graco Premium Foam Crib and Toddler Mattress fits the Pack N Play system like a glove.
The Bottom Line
While there’s not a single best mattress for the Graco Pack N Play, the list above represents our top choices for babies. Any of the three recommended will help your new born sleep well and keep them save and sound.
