Graco Review

Now that I'm expecting my first child later this year, I've come to realize all of the items that new babies need.  Forget just the standard crib and changing table that everyone thinks of, babies also need a swing, pack 'n play, jumper, exersaucer, and the list goes on and on.  Of course you want to make sure you have the best products available to provide baby with security and dependability.  Graco is here to make you and baby happy and satisfied.

Graco is the headquarters for everything and anything you could need for baby.  This brand is surely one of the few that instantly come to mind when I think of baby products.  Graco's product line-up includes strollers, high chairs, pack 'n play, car seats, swings, and more.   The best part about Graco is that their products transition with your child as they age and grow. Everyone loves to give me pregnancy and baby advice and I've been recommended Graco strollers and car seats from many people.  So it goes to show you that people are loyal to a brand they trust.  If you know someone who's pregnant or has just recently had a baby, why not gift them with a Graco swing or pack 'n play? They will surely love it!

I was fortunate enough to receive Graco's Pack 'n Play Playard with Cuddle Cove LX Rocking Seat for review.  How wonderful since a pack 'n play was on my list of items to buy before baby comes! 

Don't worry Mom, I'm just going to hang out in here for a while.  Can you get me some extra toys while you're in the next room?

This isn't just your standard pack 'n play at all! This playard offers a rocking seat which gently vibrates to soothe your newborn baby, as well as a changing pad for quick diaper changes.  Both the rocking seat and changing pad are on top of the playard and are removable.  The rocking seat has a canopy to shield baby from bright light or sun.  So if you wanted to take baby out in the yard with you while you entertain the dog and your other kids, that would be a fantastic option.  The fabric is machine washable.  A great bonus of the changing pad is that you don't have to run upstairs to baby's room every time you need to change a diaper.  The side of the pack 'n play offers three convenient storage cubbies which holds a box of wipes, diapers, and anything else you may need. The unit seems very high quality and reliable.  I like that the material and colors are gender neutral too. 

I think once I have the baby in December, I will be setting up the unit in my living room.  If I'm downstairs, baby can nap in it while I do chores or even blog.  It's not always convenient to have to go upstairs to grab whatever baby needs, it's much easier to be on the same level as baby.  In the beginning if baby is fussy, I will put them in the rocking seat for some quick relaxation to help calm them down.  I will also change baby on the changing pad downstairs thanks to the convenient diaper and wipe storage on the side.

If you choose to have baby sleep in the pack 'n play, simply take the changing pad and rocking seat off the top and place baby in the bassinet. The open view allows baby to see everything that's going on so they stay in the loop.  Another soothing feature of this pack n' play is that it features five different options of music to keep them entertained and happy.  The pack 'n play grows with your child from newborn, infant, and then to toddler.  The bassinet feature comes out to provide you with a spacious and open pack n' play that your child can play and be entertained in.  

If you travel, the pack 'n play conveniently folds up and goes into a storage bag to allow for easy plane or car travel.  Going to Grandma's for Christmas and she doesn't have a crib? No problem, your child can sleep in the pack 'n play comfortably and conveniently.  

I am very impressed with Graco's product and truly think they really thought of everything to make this a superstar product for both mom and baby. Once my baby gets here, I know the playard will get a lot of use.

*DISCLOSURE* Thank you to Graco for providing me with a complimentary product in exchange for this review.  All thoughts are my own.
