Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard with Reversible Napper and Changer

Functional Analysis:

  • Material of Changing Table and Napper
  • Wipe-clean fabric; however, parents say it would be easier if it was machine washable.
  • Reversible Changing Table and Napper
  • Napper has an incline that can help reduce reflux and allows baby to look out.
  • Napper only comes with inclined position and may need to be a consideration for babies who prefer to lay flat on their back.
  • To reverse the napper into a changing table and vice versa, one must press down on a button and lift it at the same time to initiate the flip.
  • To lock in place, an individual can apply a little pressure to the middle of the napper/changing table.
  • Removing the changing table/napper could be difficult with decreased hand function as one must pull off the side bars to access a small tab.
