How To Make Playpen Mattress Cover

In this blog post, we will show how to make playpen mattress cover. A mattress cover is important for protecting the mattress from fluids, stains, and other accidents that can happen in daycare centers or when traveling with kids.

The materials needed are an old sheet (no need for it to be big), scissors, measuring tape, a sewing machine (optional), and thread. For this project, you’ll also need elastic straps but if you don’t have any on hand then a strong ribbon will do just fine.

Making Playpen Mattress Cover

If your child will be sleeping in a playpen, it’s important to keep their mattress clean and safe. While the safest option might seem like just buying a replacement playpen mattress cover that matches your current one, you can easily take matters into your own hands with some basic sewing supplies.

Here are three simple steps to make an easy DIY playpen mattress cover

#1. The first step is to fold each sheet in half so that the width of both pieces measures 18″. 

#2. The next step is to cut out two circles from the folded edges with a diameter that measures 20″. Cut four slits on the outer edge of each circle. 

#3. Pull these slits through until they meet at the center backside of the circle, then tie them together tightly with string or ribbon. Repeat this process for all 4 corners. 

#4. Lastly, tuck in any excess fabric around your mattress.

Can You Put Mattress Pads In Pack N Play?

In order to make a Pack N Play more comfortable for sleeping, never add padding to the bottom of the playard. In addition, adding any supplemental mattresses or mattress toppers is not recommended by most manufacturers.

The only safe way to increase the comfort level of a pack n’ play is to add a cozy sheet like this one in order to provide a clean and soft surface without adding too much bulk in order for a baby or child to sleep comfortably in their playard.


How Do I Get My Baby To Nap In A Pack N Play?

Babies are not born knowing how to sleep. They have to learn it! It might take a little time for your baby to get accustomed to sleeping in their pack n play, but they will eventually sleep there without any problems. 

Here are some ideas that can help you with getting your newborn used to the idea of sleeping in their new bed:

You could place them on top of the mattress inside the pack n play and ensure that everything is safe around them while also ensuring that they’re comfortable enough.

Some babies may enjoy this transition period where they see mommy or daddy right beside them until they feel more secure during nap times on their own. You can gradually increase the distance between you and let go once you know things are going well.

Some parents like to use white noise or other soothing sounds that might help the baby calm down if they are having trouble sleeping in their pack n play.

You can also try swaddling them during nap times until you know it is okay for your little one to move around on their own accord while still feeling secure and comfortable enough to sleep well.


Do You Need A Waterproof Cover For Pack N Play?

The pack n play mattress pad/protector will help to keep the mattress from getting soaked from any kind of leaks – but you might still want to put a waterproof pad underneath it as an extra measure for peace of mind if you don’t want the fluids from a wet diaper, for example, to seep into or cause damage to your main mattress.

You might also use a waterproof pad if you think your baby is going to spit up a lot during nap time.


How Do You Clean A Playpen Mesh?

First, unpack everything from the inside of the playpen. Place the playpen on a waterproof mat, or outdoors on a hard surface. Place it somewhere that won’t be affected by any water leaking out of the playpen during the cleaning process.

Add water and soap to the bucket and stir well. Using too much soap will make it difficult to rinse everything out of your mesh – not to mention leave a residue that will attract more dirt and stains.

Soak the sponge into the cleaning solution until they are well saturated then squeeze lightly to remove excess moisture

Begin to clean the mesh netting by placing sponges back to back with one on each side of the netting. Clean both sides simultaneously, moving the sponges in unison.
