Best Pack and Play Sheets
When it comes to Pack and Plays, you will need to find different sheets than your crib sheets, as standard baby/toddler mattress sheets will be too big for a pack and play mattress. As with all baby products, there are many things you might want to consider before purchasing your pack and play sheets: pattern, softness, mattress protection, and so on.
Top Pick Up Front- The Hands Down Winner
My top pick for pack and play sheets are the Biloban playard sheets .They have the elastic corners to keep the sheet in place, and they are stretchable to fit some of the less common pack and plays. To top everything off, they are amazingly soft.
I am a huge fan of jersey sheets – they are what I use on my bed, so I was eager to find them for my son as well. They are just so cozy! And they are also on the cheaper side. They are not the cheapest available, but they are definitely fairly priced.
These Biloban sheets are fairly thin, and do not come in fun patterns. But if you are looking for a sheet to use for your pack and play that you use infrequently, these are a best bet in my book.
My overall pick for best pack and play sheet wins this category. The Biloban sheets are stretchy enough to fit most pack and plays, without being too stretchy that they are loose on smaller pack and play mattresses. Please note that the bigger your pack and play mattress is, the more the sheet will have to stretch, and it does become a bit see through because these sheets are on the thin side.
These measure in at about 37.5 inches by 25.5 inches by 3 inches deep, so they’ll fit a wide variety of pack n play, mini crib, or even bassinet mattresses. And with 4 cute color options, you can match just about any decor you want.
Things to consider when deciding on Pack and Play Sheets
One of the most exciting parts of getting ready for your baby’s arrival is setting up their nursery. Some people opt to use a Pack and Play as a crib at first because they are more compact, generally cheaper, and easier to move if necessary. Even if you don’t use a Pack and Play as your baby’s crib at first, you may find yourself using one downstairs for naps, or for a crib when traveling.
While not necessary, having sheets for your pack and play can come in really handy. Here are some buying considerations for playard sheets.
Size of YOUR pack and play mattress
Many pack and play mattresses are the same size, but some are slightly different. It is important to find sheets that fit snugly, but not too snug. With a variety of pack and plays out there, be sure to check your mattress size and compare it to the dimension of the sheets. If your sheets are too small, your pack and play mattress may end up bunching up like an accordion.
Just like adult sheets, baby sheets come in a variety of thread counts and fabrics, leaving some more soft than others. We all want our little ones to be as cozy as possible!
In my opinion, Pack and Play sheets are a little more costly than they should be. Especially considering they don’t come in a variety of fun patterns. Generally speaking, they typically are around $8-$20 a sheet, with most being around the $12-$15 range. Obviously, this isn’t going to break your bank account, but considering you will probably need at least two sheets (to have one as a backup), if you are on a budget, this can easily become an annoying extra cost.
Should I put sheets on my pack n play?
The main purpose of pack n play sheets is to make the sleeping area of your pack n play more comfortable for your baby. The included wood and minimal padding of the pack and play just won’t do it for most babies. Buying an actual pack n play mattress and soft sheets will do a lot to keep your baby comfortable as they sleep or nap.
Playard sheets also help with keeping things clean. If baby has an accident, you can (hopefully) just wash the sheet and be on your way instead of having to clean the pack and play itself, which usually isn’t machine washable.
