The Lotus is the same depth as a Pack 'n Play (25inches), and the mattress is 3 inches longer and 3 inches narrower (42in x 24in).
We believe that a longer, slightly narrow mattress is a better size because it allows a larger child to sleep more comfortably than they would in a Pack N Play, and the width is still plenty wide to be roomy and comfortable.
Additionally, even though the Lotus has the same depth as a Pack N Play, it is actually lower to the ground. This is important for two reasons:
- It makes the side door possible.
- It is safer once your little one grows enough to start climbing out...since it's lower to the ground, it's a shorter distance for them to slide over and try and touch the ground with their toes.
Please note: We recommend discontinuing use of the Lotus Everywhere Crib once your child is able to climb out over the top rail (when side door is closed).
