If a young mother does not have assistants who would look after the baby while she is doing household work, she has a hard time.
Especially with a child who has learned to crawl, get up and walk. Will certainly climb somewhere or something pulls off the table.
What if it is a hot iron or a cup of tea? Temporarily can help out the playpen.
Playpen is a kind of crib with high sides on low legs.
A child under the age until he starts to walk confidently will be difficult to get out of the arena.
While mother is preparing food or stroking, playpen is in the same room, and the baby will not feel alone. He can play his favorite toys, watch cartoons, "talk" with his mother.
If in Soviet times, the playpens were of the same type: soft bottom and mesh sides, today the choice of such devices is great. Consider the most popular models.
These models have not changed much. This is all the same metal frame, mounted on a round or square base, and the grid stretched over it.
When the baby falls, the mesh and soft bottom will not allow him to be injured.
As superfluous, such an arena is easy to remove from the frame and hide the flat structure behind the cupboard or in the closet.
There are models of mesh arenas, the base of which is folded in half. It will easily fit in the trunk of a car, you can take it with you on a trip.
The disadvantage of this model is that the grid must be constantly removed and washed. In addition, you need to look to the cells were not too small, otherwise it may adversely affect the vision of the child. Read here! Sofas from IKEA: TOP-100 photos of stylish models from the latest IKEA catalog
These models strongly resemble a children's wooden cot, only on very low legs. They are not only rectangular, but also of other shapes.

The lack of wooden models is that they are too heavy and bulky. They can not be assembled and disassembled several times a day and you have to allocate a place in the room to place them.

And such a function as vibration will help to put it to sleep quickly. This bed can serve as long as the child is 4-4.5 years old.
This model has only sides, but has no bottom. It is intended for enclosing a small space in which the child plays.
The flexible structure can be closed or closed with an angle. The material for making such a screen is transparent, and the kid will see everything that happens around him.
But the ease of construction is its minus. A one-year-old child will easily push her away and go wherever she wants.
In practice, this is a copy of an inflatable pool, only higher so that the baby does not step over the side or crush it under the weight of his own body.
The arena is good because its walls and bottom are very soft, the kid will not be hurt when falling. It is easy to hide and store if necessary.
Minus model: it is easy to pierce with a sharp object, and it will become unusable.
