My infant is quickly developing into an “on the go” baby. She has been turning all around since she was 12 weeks, and now she lifts herself up on her arms and legs and scoots around the living room. I’m still not fully baby proofed yet because my toddler has a lot of toys with small pieces, so limiting my infant to her play gym, which I like to call her small patch of land, is becoming impossible. She’s not a big fan of the swing or the bouncer because my baby has a fractured collarbone, so her most comfortable positions are laying flat on the floor or in her playard. Since she is safest in her playard, this is where she spends a lot of time when she isn’t being fed or playing.
With my first daughter, I found that despite keeping her sheets clean on her playard, the rest of the playard was still dirty and impossible to clean. There are stains all around the rim of the playard which I can’t get out, and quite honestly I just don’t want to sit and scrub the entire thing. I always wondered why playards aren’t washable, considering they generally last through a household of children. My old playard is sturdy, and there is no other reason not to use it with my new baby, except that it is dirty and grosses me out.
One of my favorite baby companies must have heard my complaints and came up with a washable playard. You can leave it to InGenuity to always come up with that unique baby must have, and now they’ve outdone themselves once again with their Disney Baby Lion King Premier Washable Playard. On the outside this playard looks exactly like any other playard and even uses the same sheets that I was using on my old playard. The difference is the Disney Baby Lion King Premier Washable Playard easily comes apart with velcro straps and can be tossed in the washing machine. Now THIS will last throughout many children in the family! It’s so much more hygienic than other playpens and remains functional.
When I placed my infant in her new playpen, she immediately spotted Simba in the corner and turned over to get a better look at him. This is her favorite feature of the Disney Lion King Premier Washable Playard and I often find her cooing to him. Of course, you already know what my favorite feature is- It’s a washable playard! What more can you ask for?
