A Gift From Graco That Both Baby and Mommy Can Enjoy
Imagine this. The baby is relaxing and happy and you have 15 minutes all to yourself. Gasp! What would you do if you had an extra 15 minutes to yourself. I know for me, when my kids were babies, I probably would have been checking my emails or Facebook account. Maybe I would have been washing my face and putting my makeup on. Heck, maybe I would have sat down on the couch and started reading a book that I had sitting on my nightstand forever, but never had the time or energy to dive into!
Last week, I was invited to a Graco Event in San Diego thanks to Global Influence. Driving from the Central Coast was about a 5 hour drive for me, but it was totally worth it! The event started at 11:00 am, which meant I had to leave at 5:30 am. That’s ok though because it meant I got to enjoy a yummy Caramel Macchiato (upside down) from Starbucks and the sunrise out of Santa Barbara. I was actually pretty impressed with myself. With traffic, I made it to the Graco Event at the home of Chelsea from Someday I’ll Learn right on time!
At the Graco Event, the Graco Little Lounger was featured. We even had a real baby model (hee hee) in the Graco Little Lounger who sat through the whole presentation without any complaints. He was so adorable! I just couldn’t stop taking pictures of this little cutie!
At the beginning of the presentation, Chelsea pointed out all of the things she loved about the Graco Little Lounger. She mentioned the fact that the calming rocking seat could double as a stationary vibrating lounger, that it played music, and that you could lock the rocker in place (a great thing, especially with a busy toddler wandering around). The Graco Little Lounger has a 2-speed vibration that keeps baby soothed and multi-position reclining that makes it easy to keep baby comfortable (especially great if you have a baby with colic). With compact folding abilities, you have the flexibility to easily store or move it around the house. Baby will also enjoy the plush fabrics, body support and mobile with two soft toys to keep baby entertained. You can also keep baby secure with the 3-point harness. The Graco Little Lounger is definitely one of those unique baby gifts that each and every mother will use and love!
During the event, we munched on healthy snacks and listened to a Personal Stylist give us tips on how we can become Effortless Chic Mommies. Here are a few tips we received from Sandra Veum:
– Always put on a piece of Mommy-appropriate jewelry. This makes a statement that you care about yourself (i.e. sparkly earring posts, cuff, or short necklace).
– Use dryer sheets for shoe freshness. Just stick them in stinky shoes in your closet.
– Carry Shout Stain Remover for spit-up or spill accidents (I would always have baby wipes with me for this).
– Carry a sweater for layering purposes or to cover up spit-up accidents or use as an impromptu baby blanket.
– Use “Everything Tape” to hold down belt straps, help tanks stay put, and close openings on blouses and dresses.
– Always put on some sort of makeup: SPF moisturizer, blush, mascara, and her secret (a nude inner eye pencil to line the bottom rims of your eyes).
To finish out the event, we each went home with a swag bag filled with goodies and our very own Graco Little Loungers to try out at home. What a fun event and great product for moms and babies! A big thank you goes to Graco, Global Influence and Chelsea for this awesome event!
So, now that you know you can keep baby comfortable and happy and get an extra 15 minutes for yourself, what will you do with that extra time on your hands?
