My mom got us a gift certificate for babies r us and I'm going to buy a pack n play with it since that was one item I absolutely loved when DD was a baby. Any suggestions on what one I should get? I can't spend more then $150 but I would prefer cheaper. I really want one that has those side pockets thingies where I can put wipes and creams in.
they can vary a lot in price depending on the little extra features on them. So consider exactly how you will be using yours. If its merely to have on hand for occasional travel, I would skip the whole bassinet, mobile, storage pieces etc and go for the cheapest plain old pack n play.
If it will be your primary crib/bassinet at least for some months then the kind that has the bassinet insert is worth the price.
If its in a room where you already have places to store diaper etc then I wouldn't worry about storage pocket.
Some have fancy canopies and netting etc for outside use....if yours most likely will not be used outside, skip all that.
