Sometimes Paying More Is Well Worth It

We were very fortunate and thankful to have two baby showers and receive lots of things for J and L. The shower given by church friends was first and the biggest gift was our Graco Pack N' Play Playard. It has been great for every stage. There is a small "napper" bed that we used when the boys were tiny and swaddled. The changer is a drop-in attachment that keeps diapers, wipes, blankets, toys and anything else you need very close and easily accessible without having to bend and reach to get something from the bottom level of the pack n' play. We bought a second pack n' play used at a consignment sale since we had twin babies and used it for trips and the few times that we were away from home and needed two, but our Graco is still used today and after almost three years is still in excellent condition! The boys sleep well in the same room at night, but not at naptime during the day. Since they are in different classrooms at preschool during the week, it's just easier for us to split them up and nap in separate rooms. J naps in his crib in the boys' room and L naps in the Graco pack n' play in our bedroom. Yes, it is pricey and we were surprised to receive it, but it made things much easier for us and almost three years later has help up with constant use and is still in like-new condition.

The pack n' play fit well when the boys were very small and spent the night with Ken's parents in their RV.

The boys only napped or slept together a few times when they were very little, but this time was only for one night and it made packing a lot easier.
