One of the things that used to drive me crazy when my kids were babies was having so many different pieces of baby apparatus. Each one was needed since they all did separate things..baby soothing things. There was the bassinet, the rocker, the bouncy seat, the high chair..etc. Not only did all of that equipment take up a lot of space but it was expensive too. Well, listen up parents, you’re in luck because Graco has come out with a fantastic new 2 in one product called the Little Lounger™. Serving as both a rocking seat and a vibrating lounger, the Little Lounger™ is a great multi purpose space saver that will keep your baby lounging in luxury! All I have to say is “Where were you Little Lounger when I needed you?” (as I shake my fist toward the heavens while I look into the sea of baby products in my basement) Seriously though, the Little Lounger™ is a must have for your little one!
I was invited by Graco to attend an event that introduced the Little Lounger™ to an audience of Moms in my area. Although I am past the baby stage with my kids, I still have friends and family that have or are having babies and I’m often asked my advice on baby gear. ( I guess when you have 4 kids you qualify as some sort of baby wizard..which I kind of like the sound of…baby wizard, yes….take that Harry Potter!) I was interested to learn about the Little Lounger because I have used and loved Graco products with all of my children. Truth be told I still can’t part with some of them and my youngest is SEVEN years old now! The Little Lounger is easy to assemble (see video below) and switches from a calming rocking seat mode to a 2-speed vibrating lounger with a quick flip of the Rock Locks™, which keep the rocker stationary. Your baby is safe and secure in a 3 point harness, comfortable in the multiple position reclining seat, and entertained with a toy bar. Just when you think it can’t get any better….it does….the price point of this Mommy’s helper is only $79.99!! It’s also available in 5 different patterns. Pattern availability varies depending on the store so be sure to take a look at the list below to see which location sells the pattern you love.
