Have you ever heard the saying, “Don’t do anything else in your bed except sleep!”? I heard this phrase time and time again when I was in college. I was always watching TV, studying, eating, reading, or playing on my phone when I was in bed! Then when it came to sleep I always had issues falling asleep and STAYING asleep. So much tossing and turning. It was terrible! Doing anything else in the bedroom but sleeping teaches your brain that the bedroom is for things OTHER than sleeping.
I believe this to be the same with babies! It isn’t the end of the world if you let your baby play in their crib when you need to put them somewhere safe that they can’t escape from. But if you have the means to get a “play yard” like this one, I HIGHLY recommend it. Jackson has been sleeping through the night since he was 7 months old and only had one sleep regression before then! So technically he was sleeping through the night since he was 3 months old. I do believe the main reason he sleeps so good in his crib is because he has nothing but sleep (or cry) in there haha.
This play yard from Joovy is phenomenal!!! It has many great features for newborns like the removable bassinet and water proof sheet (for all those blowouts in the beginning.) I’m in love with the flip-away changing table; so convenient! I think my favorite thing is the diaper station though. I’ve never seen a pack and play with this before! It is perfect for storing all of your baby’s needs, especially when traveling (which we can’t wait to do more of now that Jack is older.) Joovy really thought of everything when designing The Room!
