Selecting A Play Yard For Everyone's Needs

Aug 7, 2008
The best thing you can possibly do for a new baby is to invest in his or her future with a good play yard (sometimes spelled "playard" by certain manufacturers), as well as other products to keep him or her busy and entertained. The biggest thing that you should keep in mind is that you should never wait until your baby has already arrived before going shopping for the essential items. Doing this puts a lot of strain on your family, and will only add to your stress level. Also, you'll find that when you're rushed, you won't be able to find the play yard that fits your family's needs nearly as well as if you give yourself plenty of time to shop around. Make your choices wisely, as these play yards will have to last your baby a long time.

Before you begin, selecting a room is of the utmost importance. You can't expect to build a comfortable place for your baby unless you concentrate on the essentials first. The play yard you select will have to be in an area of the house that will allow you to be able to hear your baby at a moment's notice in the middle of the night. Some parents even put their child in a play yard in the room with them for the first several months just to make sure that the child can easily be heard during the night. Be cautious though, as this may also interfere with your sleeping habits!

Keeping your baby entertained is also a great way to keep your baby happy. Avoid flat wall patterns or other boring things. Your baby's brain needs stimulation at such a young age, which has been shown by some scientists to greatly enhanced your child's learning ability down the road when he or she is older. Ensure that when you're shopping for your play yard to get a mobile attached that will be engaging to your baby, and also matches the surrounding room.

A key point of this article: Do not skimp on cost. Yes, being cheap may sound great in the short term, but imagine having to replace that play yard every couple months because it's fallen apart. If you spend the money right off the bat for a good quality play yard, you'll save money in the long term by not having to continually replace it. Also, more expensive play yard models often have other amenities that will keep your baby entertained.

I certainly hope that this article has helped you decide on a specific play yard model to purchase.
