We got gifted this wonderful play yard for baby boy from a company called Delta Children. It’s honestly the perfect addition we needed before he makes his arrival into the world. I had seen play yards with the bassinet & changer on top but never understood just how amazing & convenient they really make everything. I have 3 other kids and all I can say is- I’VE BEEN MISSING OUT.
My older two children are close in age so I used the same baby products for them (bassinet to crib to toddler bed). I didn’t even consider traveling anywhere for the fear of having to find a safe place for the baby to sleep. Once they were about 2 and 3 we started traveling overnight & I would bring along my basic ‘ol playpen for the youngest to sleep in. Now I honestly didn’t think I’d be having a third and fourth child but hey – LIFE HAPPENS. The gap between my oldest two and youngest two is about 5 years. I had stupidly gotten rid of every single baby item I had owned and when baby number three came along I had to go & rebuy all of the baby things. Now just like any mom sooo many things changed from baby products to “what’s allowed”/”whats not allowed”. I had always been a mom who uses a bassinet and transitions them into a crib. Now being on my 4th child I needed something a little more functional for the first year that also wouldn’t break the bank. My motherhood methods have changed so drastically from my first two kids to now. I don’t wait to travel anywhere anymore in fact a month after my third child was born we drove 9 hours to visit family for Christmas. Life doesn’t stop happening just because you have kids so I found its much easier to go with the flow but be prepared! The fact we will be welcoming baby number four into our already chaotic family dynamic I wanted to make it as smooth of a transition as possible. This play yard helps me be prepared for just about anything with my newborn because of it’s mobility & convenience!
Let me just tell you a little more about this playpen. You need no tools to set it up & it’s super easy. It only took me about 10-15 minutes to do it all by myself (and I’m 29 weeks pregnant). The bassinet & changer on top is easily removable which can turn this playpen from temporary newborn item to long-lasting & functional throughout the babies growth! It comes with hanging storage on the side & a CUTE plush toy mobile (that’s also easily removable). It comes in a carrying case which makes it convenient to pack up & take with you whenever you need! The best part about this play yard? The company, Delta Children. They have such high safety standards it’s a relief to know the product you’re buying for your child is dependable.
