The 11 Best Pack ‘N Play Sheets

So, you’ve purchased a Pack and Play. Step one is complete. And, trust me, I know there’s a lot of options out there when it comes to playards. There are so many different brands and accessories to choose from it can be overwhelming. When filling out my registry, I must’ve changed my mind 10 times. I ended up selecting a Graco Pack and Play with a changing station, side pocket for items like diapers and wipes and a bouncer on the other side. So, now that you have decided on which playard to get, what should you look at next? Likely, you should start looking into some playpen sheets to go with your playard. 

 

The obvious question you might be asking yourself as you read this: are Pack and Play sheets necessary? And, as a follow-up, do you also need sheets for a Pack n Play bassinet? I know I definitely did search a lot about Pack ‘n Play sheets as I put together my registry. The answer, in my opinion, from both my research and experience is yes you will need a sheet or, better yet, multiple sheets (baby’s definitely can quickly make a mess) to cover your pack and play mattress. You will want to cover your playard mattress to keep it clean and you will want a nice fabric so your little one can fall asleep comfortably. Additionally, if you opt for a Pack and Play bassinet, I believe the answer is also yes. The below list is my top picks on playard sheets but there are also so many great bassinet sheets out there. And, if you do some research you’ll see many of these brands offer bassinet sized sheet options as well.

 

Before we get into my favorites, let me address another question many of you might be asking - can you use crib sheets for a Pack n Play? The safe answer in my opinion is no. The reason being that crib sheets won’t stay securely in place to the playard mattress, which could make for a dangerous situation for your baby. After all, having loose bedding including sheets can put your little one at risk for suffocation or strangulation. When you are selecting fitted sheets for your playpen you want to be sure that they fit securely and will not pose any potential risk to your baby.
