Arms Reach question

Does anyone know if an Arms Reach Cosleeper will accommodate a standard pack n play mattress? I'm trying to look at online dimensions of pack n plays and mattresses. And they all seem close, but I'm afraid just based on numbers that it's going to be about 1" too wide to fit in.

I do not know for sure, but I always thought the co-sleeperwas just a tad smaller than a PNP.

What I'm finding show the same (outer) dimensions. Except the arms reach is 1/2-1" narrower depending on what brand pack n play you're comparing to. But I've not been able to find anything that lists inner dimensions.

I have an arms reach cosleeper (original size - not mini) Just measured the mattress and its 25x37. Nothing larger than that would fit

Re: Arms Reach question

Well that stinks! That's a good few inches either way too small. So much for that plan. Does anyone have any ideas/suggestions for making the bottom pack n play portion of the Cosleeper more sleep friendly? Or is the bottom of it maybe better than a regular pack n play.

Thank you so much for measuring that for me.

Are you trying to make your co-sleeper thicker?

No not with the top cosleeper portion. Just the bottom when using it as a pack n play, to make it not so hard.

Oh yeah - maybe buy an egg crate to put over or under it. That way you can control the thickness.

My original arms reach cosleeper fit a pack and play mattress really well. I used it when it was a cosleeper and now as a pack and play no issues. PM me if you want a link to the one that fit mine!
