So you’re a new parent. Between medical bills, clothes, formula, diapers, car seat, stroller, and all the other stuff baby needs, you may not want to spend the money on a playard. That’s certainly what I thought. But after trying out the Graco Pack n Play Playard Snuggle Suite LX, I can’t imagine not having it. This thing is a lifesaver!
As far as assembly, it’s going to take as long as most any playards to assemble. The directions are easy to follow. And that’s good because you don’t want to spend five hours assembling something when you’ve got a crying baby. Speaking of that crying baby, the bouncer that comes with it will not only soothe baby with its vibrations, but will save you money. You don’t need to purchase one. Our baby’s first week, sometimes the bouncer was the only thing that got him to sleep. Like many playards, it converts to a bassinet. Unlike most playards, however, the fabric is just about the most comfy you’ll find out there. With mesh on all four sides, you won’t have to worry if baby’s getting enough air, and you’ll be able to see him just fine as he or she sleeps.
And sleep baby will with the soothing music and nature sounds. Or perhaps you just want to turn on a light for a moment to check on the baby. This playard comes with that as well. But don’t be frightened. It couldn’t be easier to use. Now I know what you’re thinking. That’s all well and good, but I wish I didn’t have to move baby to a separate room to change her. Well, you don’t. The playard comes with a detachable changing station that can hold up to a 30 pounder, so no matter how big at birth, baby will get plenty of use out of it. This is my favorite feature. And the design is genius. Instead of being flat like changing tables, it’s curved for the baby’s safety. The changing station slides in easily and is just as simple to remove. The playard comes with plenty of storage space to hold diapers, lotions, baby wipes, etc.
We had a termite issue at our house, and baby couldn’t sleep upstairs in his crib. Thank goodness for the Graco Pack n Play Playard Snuggle Suite LX. It was a lifesaver. Baby was comfortable and happy, which means parent is comfortable and happy. It comes with wheels, so it is easily transportable when taking it to the grandparents’ house, and it takes up much less space than one would think.
The playard transitions as your child grows. It’ll serve him up to his toddler years, which I fully look forward to. I can’t recommend the Graco Pack n Play Playard Snuggle Suite LX enough. It’ll give you peace of mind, and give baby the rest during his early years and the playtime when he’s older that baby craves.
