Because I love to travel with my kids, MamaDoo Kids sent me this travel crib pad to test out. It’s perfect for traveling with kids!

To tell you the truth, I had often felt bad for my kiddos when they had to sleep in a pack & play (or Play Yard or Playpen) because of the hard pad that the manufacturers include.

It wasn’t fair for my wife and I to have a nice soft hotel bed, and then subject my kids to a hard cardboard mattress.

I’m really surprised that it took someone this long to invent a nicer mattress! P.S. MamaDoo makes the only one of its kind in the U.S.

MamaDoo’s Description:

“For years parents have tried to make that hard-floor-board used in play yards more comfortable for their children by using blankets, portacrib or bassinet mattresses, which do not travel well and leave unsafe gaps next to the netting.

“The solution is finally here. The MamaDoo™Kids Playard Mattress Topper – foldable transforms that hard-floor-board into a comfortable surface for babies to play and rest.

“The family owned and operated MamaDoo Kids, dedicated to making products that allow your kids to be more comfortable, proudly created and has Patents Pending for the Utility and the Design of the first and only Foldable Mattress Topper for playards of its kind in the U.S.”


Ultra portable, folds into 3 parts, and comes with its own carrying strap. Removable and washable slip-cover.


Fits tightly in most standard playards leaving no gaps. Contains no lead or phthalates.


Slip-cover top is 97% cotton, 3% spandex. Core is high-density, non-toxic, durable foam. Soft-yet-firm.


Traveling, staying in hotels, visiting family, Grandparents. Home, day care, babysitter’s house, the beach, camping.

    Josh, I just love this MamaDoo pack N Go mattress topper. I was just looking to buy a pack N Go for our house and didn’t like the looks of the mattresses that came with them. This is the perfect solution. With Grandbaby#3 on the way, we are running out of beds for the little ones. I need one for my daughters house too. These are a great product. Thank you for letting us know about these!!!!!

  3. 3

    Great review! (Gorgeous photos and model!) wonderful product, can’t believe no one thought of this before. The softness of the foam sounds perfect.

  4. 4

    I like that it is compact and can be taken anywhere. It also fits the pack and play snuggly!

    I’d love to win!! We just transitioned our 9 month old into our 2 year old sons crib (he was in our room before). Because of that our 2 year old has to sleep in a pack n play in his sisters room, until we can get our baby sleeping great through the night. I feel bad for my 2 year old in the hard crib, we give him blankets for padding, but they still move around in the night!!
    This pad would be the perfect solution!!

  6. 6

    I just love that it can be used in the play yard as well as out of the play yard as a little seat! Can’t say enough good things about these!

  7. 8

    I agree with the comment in the article, I can’t stand the crummy manufacturer’s pad that comes with the pak n’ play. Meanwhile daddy and I get to sleep on a thick comfy mattress. What an amazing idea, we wouldn’t want to sleep one that thin flimsy pad, how could we expect our babies to??

  8. 9

    I “like” on Facebook….I really like this pad I wish I knew about it sooner for our first born. Better late then never.

  9. 10

    I “Like” MamaDoo Kids on Facebook. I am a big advocate for wanting my kid to sleep comfortably. I think we forget because we have our comfy beds. I can’t get over what a great idea this pad is.

  10. 11

    Telling all my friends about this giveaway on my Facebook….even though I’d rather keep it to myself because of how bad I want this pad for my little girl. 🙂

  11. 12

    We just love this mattress topper! We use it in our Pack and Play at home and when we travel and couldn’t be happier with the quality and the comfort if provides our little guy.

  12. 13

    Fabulous! I love that it makes the pack and play softer. Like you I feel awful putting my son on that hard, awful mattress!

  13. 14

    I love that it makes the pack and play so much softer! I feel so bad putting my son to sleep in his because of the horrid mattress so he always ends up in bed with me!

  14. 15

    I love that it is so versatil. I currently use it in the pack and play and love that my son has a cushy pad to sleep on. And once he is out of the pack and play, I love that I can use it as a play pad or a little sitting are. It is so well worth the money!

    I also felt bad about that hard thin mattress that comes with the pack n play. I love how thick and portable these are. I want one for my second daughter.

    My son has one at my house but needs one at dads .
    My son and I absolutly love it ! I love the fact that the
    Cover comes off so it can be easily washed (for cheeto
    fingers let’s say) 😉

    I llike that it is foldable – that just makes so much sense with a pack and play topper. Thanks for the chance to win!

    I love that I am able to travel with it. I am going on a summer trip this summer and what I worried most about was where my baby would sleep. We recently purchased the pack n play but the mattress was horrible! I was in search of a mattress to replace it and am so happy I came across your blog 🙂 the reviews on the Mamadoo are so great.. Thank you for the opportunity to win one :).

    I LOVE this mattress! I can’t believe I didn’t know it existed until now. I love that it fits snugly in the pack n play and gives baby a comfy place to rest. I travel often being across the country from my family and would love Olivia to have a safe comfortable bed.

    I like that it is easily transportable and fits in a pack n play.

  49. 51

    couple of quick questions… is the mattress, or the cover, waterproof? For those occasional leaky diapers of course. If not is there a waterproof mattress cover that would fit over this? Also, can the mattress be used with/on the playpen mat when it’s in the bassinet position, or would it be too heavy and unstable?

    Thanks in advance!
