How old should my toddler be for a playpen?

A playpen is a great way to give your baby a safe place to play, but choosing the right one is essential. A playpen comes into its own when your child is just beginning to crawl -- at about six or seven months -- and you may find it helpful until your child is about two years old. Think about how you'll use it and in which areas of your home before buying one because you want to ensure that the playpen can be used safely in those spaces.

But there are some essential factors to consider:

  • Your baby should be able to roll over, grasp a toy and lift her head before you place her in a playpen. It will allow her to become comfortable with the playpen before you use it frequently. If she is still young enough, wait until she is.
  • Introduce your baby to the playpen at no later than four months so she can become comfortable with it by the time you use it frequently.

 Always consider the safety and functionality of the product for babies and toddlers on what playpens to use. We recommend:
