Without a standard, some do the right thing, some do not.
Mar 19, 2016 — Have a look at the air permeability chart from the Karow vs Evenflo trial.
Think of the left side as "like a plastic bag" and the right side as "like a face mask that's very easy to breathe through."
The only glimmer of hope is that some newer Evenflo play yards have at least SOME air permeability. Neither the industry nor safety standards people test or talk publicly about the role of air permeability in preventing suffocation, but it's clear that the leaders on the right build massive air permeability into their products already.
Let's level the playing field and get old suffocation-risky play yards out of day cares and bedrooms by shifting air permeability from a "proprietary" feature to a required standard.
