Every time you turn on the television these days there is a brand new must-have product for babies whether it’s part of the Graco collection of baby products or from some other baby gear company.
With so many neat looking products on the market how on earth are you supposed to know what’s a necessity and which items are bright and shiny luxuries?
Graco gear is designed to suit a wide range of budgets and needs that infants and new mothers alike have.
The ever-expanding price tag of bringing a new life in the world is often egged on by the excitement of the event and a little bit of product envy. You see other new mommies with the latest styles, gadgets, gizmos, and gifts and you want to give all that and more to your bright little bundle of joy. But, does baby really NEED all those distractions?
You don’t have to have fully stocked nursery to bring baby into the world. There are a few items that new mothers really need. Other than that, a lot of love, smiles, and helping hands will go a long way. But these are the things you NEED to bring home baby.
Rear Facing Infant Car Seat
You need a rear facing infant car seat and a locking base. Most hospitals in the U.S. will not allow you to leave with the baby until you’ve shown them that you have the infant seat and know how to properly place your infant in the seat and fit the seat in the Graco base. Graco infant car seats are an excellent choice and it’s possible to get an additional Graco car seat base that will fit your seat for each automobile you drive.
This is one thing that many new moms debate. You don’t have to get the complete Graco Quattro System Tour Stroller though it’s certainly not a bad idea as it combines a stroller and infant carrier/car seat into the system.
The Graco duo Stroller or the Graco Portica is a good idea for families with more than one young child or infant.
Pack ‘n Play
Graco has many different versions of the Graco pack and play or Graco playpen. This was once thought of as a luxury but offers the most in portability. Some people are choosing these at first instead of Graco cribs because it can be moved from room to room so that baby is always nearby. The other beauty of the Graco Suits Solutions portable playard is that it is stylish, functional, and offers additional storage on board so that all the necessities for baby are at your fingertips.
There are other items in the Graco collection that you might want for baby later on including a Graco highchair, Graco swings, Graco toys, and countless other odds and ends items but these are the primary things that are needed when baby first comes home and you can add others according to your baby’s own likes and dislikes
