The Graco Pack And Play Is A Life Saver For New Parents

By Jessica Colby

The Graco pack and play is definitely a life saver for new parents. It is hard to imagine how parents got along before this product was invented. Of all the unused items that parents purchase for their children, this certainly will not be one of them. This will make a fantastic gift or a purchase that parents will definitely be happy to have made.

To start with, this piece of furniture weighs only twelve pounds. Because it is lightweight it is quite simple to move from place to place. Add to this convenience the fact that it has wheels, and just about anyone will have no difficulty moving it to a more desirable location.

People spend a great deal of money to purchase items for newborns, only to find that they could have gotten by quite nicely without most of them. In fact, many parents have piles of unused items sitting in there homes. Bassinets and playpens are unnecessary for those who own this fantastic piece of furniture. It will serve the purpose of both. This is happy for news for those just hearing what the real cost is of diapers.

The Graco bassinet model can be used from day one. The bassinet feature is raised above the rest of the pack and play, making it easier for parents to place the child to sleep, or remove them from a nap. This removable bassinet can be used for as long as a usual bassinet would be. It can then be removed from the rest of the unit and stored for future use. The lower part of the unit is now available to a larger, older baby.

This unit is especially useful for a new mother who has just arrived home from delivery. An upstairs nursery can be quite challenging in the first weeks following a baby being born. This may be even more so for a woman who has had a cesarean section. Rather than going up and down stairs throughout the day, this fantastic addition is perfect for those frequent newborn nap times.

Travel can be stressful enough, but traveling with a newborn will be even more so. What to bring, where the child will sleep, and how much storage is available, are all questions that will be raised. Most people will not relish the idea of their child sleeping in a strange crib. This may not be a problem if they are visiting family members, but it certainly will if the family will be staying in a hotel room. Fortunately, this family has an alternative, so this is not an issue.

This lightweight unit also folds up to a comfortable carrying size. The zip up cover comes complete with a handle which keeps the unit clean during transportation. It is a simple enough matter to store it in an automobile’s trunk. Sheets are available in order to keep the pad comfortable and fresh at all times.

The convenience of the Graco pack and play makes it an item that should be purchased by any new parent.
