Honestly, what did we do before Pack and Plays? My son is now outgrown his, but I was so grateful to have it. We kept it on the lower level of the house, so I didn't have to run up/down stairs for diaper changes or naptime. Putting it together was hard, but I made the mistake of waiting until I was sleep deprived with a newborn. DO NOT DO THAT, LOL! Overall, a PnP is a great thing to have either at your house or at the Grandparents.
