Buy “Dream On Me 3" Playard Mattress, White Portable Crib Mattresses Baby” Online
The playard I have is the Graco Pack ‘n Play Playard with Newborn Napper Station LX, the link is here:[. ..]The manufacturer dimensions for the playard are 40″ x 28. 5″, so if yours matches these dimensions but have different colors/features, the fit should be the same. When I was looking at reviews, I found differing opinions on the fit of the mattress. Some said it was perfect, some said there was a large gap. The mattress does drop neatly into the base of the playard (I removed the bottom mat that came with the playard before putting the mattress in). However, the mattress is far from snug. It fits, kind of, but it is not a perfect fit. Without pushing the mattress off to the sides, there is a gap around the edges of the mattress and the sides of the playard. Since the sides of the playard are flexible, you can’t really measure the width of the gap. Around 2″ if you don’t force it, 4″ if you do. So the gap is not big enough for a baby to fall into and get stuck, but it is definitely not snug like a crib mattress is to a crib. So while you’re looking at the gap and wondering if it’s large enough to be a risk, there’s a giant warning tag on the playard that warns not to use any mattresses that did not come with it. I tried putting the mattress about the playard pad, and I tried putting the playard pad on top of the mattress. This does not resolve the gap. I will try to upload a picture showing the gap of the mattress and playard, if I can figure out how. Edit: I uploaded an image showing the size of the gap. Bottom line, it fits the Graco playards, but not perfectly. If you’re ok with a small gap around the sides of the mattress, then it will be fine for you. About firmness and the plastic-y sound:The mattress is all foam, and pretty firm. Since baby mattresses are supposed to be firm anyway, I didn’t feel like it was too much. The baby should not sink down into the mattress when laid on it, and she doesn’t. The mattress does have a plastic covering, but I didn’t hear it make any noise when she shifted around on it. It’s not like it’s that plastic stuff that some people use to protect their couches, it’s a much smoother plastic. Now for sheets:The regular Graco Pack n Play sheets do not fit, they do not accommodate for the 3″ depth of the mattress. You can squeeze the mattress into it if you try, but it will warp the mattress. Graco Pack ‘n Play Sheet, Grey <— These do not fitThe American Baby Company 100% Organic Cotton Interlock Fitted Pack N Play Sheet does fit perfectly. The manufacturer dimensions for the sheet are 39″ x 27″. I would recommend these sheets, they are organic, very soft, and a decent price.

Dream On Me 3" Playard Mattress, White Review
I bought this mattress because my youngest will be sleeping in her Pack n’ Play for an extended period and the Graco "mattress" is hard as a rock. I’m sure she doesn’t care, but I’d like her to enjoy resting her head somewhere soft. The Dream on Me mattress fits perfectly in our Pack n’ Play. There is a little give on the sides (pictured), but for no fault of the mattress. The PnP is made of fabric with some give. It’s not taught like a crib. I probably would not put a 6 month old on this mattress, but only for paranoia and not because I believe it would pose a real theat to the child. As you can see, there is only about 1. 5 inches of give if you press on the sides of the PnP. I hardly think that is enough to catch or trap a baby, but I’m no expert. The mattress is firm, but comfy. The sheets will run you $8-$20/each on Amazon. It’s made of nonporous material, which is great for long term use. I’d probably feel comfortable buying second hand for that reason. -Read Reviews-
Fits a standard Graco Pack N Play in bassinet mode. I haven’t tried it at the bottom of the Pack N Play but it seems like it would also fit just fine.
