15 Minutes for mom with the Graco Little Lounger #Graco15ForMe #Review

I was recently invited to participate in the #Graco15ForMe blogger event which took place in the home of one of my favorite local bloggers Emily from Baby Dickey. I was able to spend some time with a group of local bloggers learning all about the new Graco Little Lounger in Dakota and all of its awesome features.

I had a lot of fun playing with the Little Lounger and since I brought baby Julia with me I was able to really test this product out during the event. Julia was enthralled with the little stars on the mobile and was a big fan of the adjustable recline option. Since I am all about baby gear, playing around with the Little Lounger was a treat for me as well. Graco was kind enough to send each of us bloggers home with one of our own for further testing.

What we love about the Graco Little Lounger:
I love that this is 2 products in one; a rocking seat and a vibrating lounger. Baby gear seems to multiply once you bring it home and before you can blink your eyes your house has been taken over by baby gear. So when a product can be multifunctional it quickly becomes a family favorite.

The Little Rocker can gently rock back and forth in rocking seat mode or you can flip the rock locks and eliminate the seats ability to rock, creating a stable and secure seat for baby.

The seat has a vibrating option with two different degrees of strength. With one battery {yes I said ONE battery} the seat can vibrate with the switch of a button.

I am a big fan of the fact that the Little Lounger can collapse for portability. By simply pushing the “push to fold” button you are able to fold and lock the seat for easy storage or for traveling convenience.

I love the mesh on the sides of the seat and the soft plush fabric used for the lining. It creates a safe, soft, and breathable seat for baby to play and rest in.

The seat reclines. This was a big plus for us as my daughter really likes to sit up and see what is going on around her. We have used the seat to rest in and to play in and having the ability to adjust the recline of the seat makes the world of difference.

I have used the Little Lounger around my house to buy myself time to cook dinner, get in a quick run, and to get dressed and ready for the day. This little seat has bought me 15 minutes of me time… and then some. I have even used some of the makeup tips I learned at the #Graco15ForMe event from Rachel at rdArtistry. For example, I now know that the brightest part of my face should be the center of my face and that if I want to get rid of the dark circles under my eyes {from lack of sleep- thanks to baby Julia} I should blend my concealer out and continue to my outer eye instead of stopping at the end of the dark circle. The Little Lounger has helped me to keep baby Julia safe and secure so that I can get things done when I need to.

The Graco Little Lounger is available for purchase at Babies R Us, at Target, and at BuyBuyBaby. To connect with Graco you can visit them on Facebook and at @GracoBaby on twitter.
