We were given a Pack N Play for our oldest at our baby shower, my mom and dad also bought one. I would recommend it to anyone who travels with babies or grandparents who keep baby over night occasionally.
The Pack N Play worked well when we went on vacation, it stored easily in the back of the car with our luggage and didn’t take up too much space. It was cheaper than a crib, so my parents used it with both kids as babies when they stayed overnight.
Pros- lightweight, works as well as a crib, cheaper than a crib, holds up through babies- my girls are almost 5 years apart and we used the same Pack n Plays with both.
Cons- none that I can think of off the top of my head. We used a normal crib on a day to day basis, but she did nap in the Pack n Play more than a few times.
