Like any new parent, I’ve been struggling to get anything done around the house. I know what you’re thinking – “They’re only small once! Hold her while you can!” For the most part, I am taking that advice. I spend the majority of my day snuggled up on the couch with Elizabeth reading books and watching Netflix. There’s nothing I love more! But when there are no clean dishes left in the cupboards and the laundry pile is the size of Mount Everest, something’s gotta give! That’s where the Laid-Back Lounger by Summer Infant comes to the rescue! The lounger provides a safe place for me to set Elizabeth down while I scramble to get as many chores done in as little time as possible. She seems very comfortable and relaxed in the lounger and loves to look at the toys that dangle above her!
I find many activity mats and loungers to be quite gaudy, so the aesthetic appeal of this lounger is a big plus for me! The colours are bright and cheerful and the woodland animal theme is absolutely adorable and very trendy right now! The fabric is nice and soft and the bolsters provide a ton of cushion and support for your wiggly little babe! The lounger is very compact and lightweight, allowing me to easily move it from room to room in our house as I clean, always keeping her within eyesight.
Another huge benefit of the Laid-Back Lounger by Summer Infant is that is grows with your child! You can use it simply as a lounger, for tummy time, or for supported sitting once baby gets a bit older. I’m a huge fan of items that serve multiple purposes as it means less clutter for me to try to hide away when company comes over!
I’m excited to continue to use this lounger in the months to come! I look forward to the days when I have time to stay on top of all of my housework again, but for now I’ll focus on soaking in all of the baby love I can (with the occasional lounger break and speed cleaning session thrown in!)
