It should be fine. You don't want anything too too soft, but I think they make pad cover things that you can put on top of the "mattress." Those things really do feel like cardboard. My son didn't have a problem sleeping in his as a newborn.

I don't think so. It has to be firm and under a certain amount of inches to be safest for the baby. Bassinet mattresses are usually really firm too.

They do have a bassinet attachment which attaches to the side of the thing and is great for use earlier. It's softer and plusher than the shelf thing they have.

I know it should be sturdy but it seriously feels like she will be sleeping on a bunch of bricks lol, poor girl :(

I used the bassinet pack n play mixture.. thing. Lol. LO has acid reflux, so he was in a bouncer in this pack n play, though.



After we got rid of the bouncer, we just used the pack n play. LO didn't seem to mind. Sometimes we put a blanket underneath him. I was so paranoid about SIDS, that I didn't keep it in there that long. lol.

DD's bassinet "mattress" (the thing was a thin strip of foam not a mattress lol) seemed like it would be so uncomfortable but DD slept in it just fine.

I got my pack n play used at a "mom 2 mom" thing at a church..... I can't even find it on google so I'm not sure if ANY attachment will fit on it? All I know is it is Eddie Bauer lol

I put a couple of thick padded baby blankets and then put the crib sheet over that and made sure it was tucked in real good worked for me!

I don't think they're made to go in the bassinet part though. It's too shallow.

I've never felt a bassinet mattress lol so I wasn't quite sure. Just never felt the need to buy one.

my DD preferred that over the bassinet. They make sheets for the pack and play and they are super fitted so they wont come off easily. So what I did was put a couple of receiving blankets or a small baby quilt under the sheet so that it would not come loose and get all tangled around her, but surprisingly she found the "hard" mattress more comfortable. Just be careful "padding" it because its too easy for little babies to get wrapped up in loose bedding.
