Even as a mom of four, when I got pregnant with my fifth child 7 years after my daughter, it seemed all new to me again and there was a lot I forgot to figure out. Being born at only 35 weeks and declared small for gestational age, when we got my son home from the hospital I realized there were items useful to my newborns in the past that weren't suitable for my son's tiny size. This left him either in my arms or in his bassinet at all times. My carriers was only for 8lbs and up; even when strapped in, the bouncer was too big and on too great an incline. He looked like he would slide down and out a foot hole in seconds.
As days past, I craved more interaction for my son. I wanted him to be able to hang out in the living room with us all during his awake periods and explore his surroundings with his eyes. I wanted him to be able to stretch out and relax beyond being cradled in my arms – not that I don't love to cradle him! And that is when I was introduced to my favorite item thus far! The Boppy Newborn Lounger.
The Boppy Newborn Lounger is the perfect way for your little one to sit back and enjoy the world around him or her. Uniquely designed with a recessed interior perfect for a newborn's bottom, baby is cradled in the center of the pillow with their top halves in a semi upright (lounging) position perfect for kicking back in comfort.
This lounger was specifically designed for babies up to 16 lbs and was one of the only products my late term preemie could fit comfortably and securely in. The Boppy Newborn Lounger opened up a whole new world to him. With its convenient carrying handle and lightweight design, we can easily transfer this product from room to room and even pack it up with us on-the-go. And since we all know accidents happens, especially when it comes to babies. The Boppy Newborn Lounger has easy-clean fabric, meaning when a mess happens you can simply wipe the cover clean.
My little guy isn't able to do much, but his favorite thing now is definitely having the opportunity to sit back, binky in his mouth, and watch his brothers and sisters around him. It makes my heart smile to seem them interact even in a limited way at this point. And I love that my daughter takes advantage of his lounging time by reading to him.
If you're expecting or have a new baby, this is one must-have you don't want to forget on your list. It's one of those must-have you didn't know you needed, but once you received it, you don't know what you would do without it! With all the new products on the market since the birth of my daughter 7 years ago, this is the first to truly make its way to the top of my must-have list for convenience, comfort, uniqueness and portability. There aren't many products designed specifically for the newborn age range and options are very limited during this time. Boppy has really brought forward, yet another product, which is not only beneficial for baby, but crafted with mom in mind as well. We love it!
