Let's Clear the Aire: Nuna Playard Comparison
Many customers have requested a comparison of two playards from Nuna: the Sena Aire Mini and the Cove Aire.
While both playards have many similarities, there are key differences that may be beneficial, depending on your lifestyle and how you plan to use the playard. Let's break them down!
Both of these playards from Nuna weigh 22 lbs and have a weight capacity of 30 lbs. Both come with organic sheets and a travel bag. One of my favorite features of the Nuna playards is the super simple one-handed fold. Each playard can even be folded with the bassinet attachment, so there's no need to remove it before packing the playard away. Mesh panels along the perimeter of both playards allow for maximum airflow to keep baby cool.
Because of their small footprints, both the Sena Aire Mini and the Cove Aire playards double as a space-saving bedside crib when used in bassinet mode and are perfect for creating a safe sleep environment in the parent's bedroom.
Not only are they great for use at home, but they are perfect for travel. Both playards come equipped with convenient carry bags.
The most notable difference between the Sena Aire Mini and the Cove Aire is the napper-topper that is included with the Cove Aire. The napper portion transforms the playard into a comfy place for your infant to rest and can recline to keep your baby as comfortable as possible. The topper also includes a 3-point safety harness to secure your baby into the napper. It can be used from birth up to 15 lbs.
The napper can easily be removed to reveal the full-size bassinet. As your little one grows, you can unzip the bassinet to open up the perfect play space for your baby or toddler.
There you have it!
Both the Sena Aire Mini and Cove Aire are excellent choices and offer multi-functionality. If you're looking to take it a step farther, the Cove Aire has three features, including the napper accessory, and might be a great choice for you if you're looking to minimize the amount of baby products in your home. It could take the place of a swing or a bouncer as a place to set your baby down for a bit.
