As much as I love supporting small businesses, babies are expensive and there are also some items you just can’t get at the smaller shops. Of all the chain stores, Target has been my favorite place to buy things for Henry. It was the first place I went to, to start buying things for him while I was pregnant. They have the sweetest things, at good prices, and when I saw them selling several things with elephants or clouds on them I was so happy and excited, as that was my nursery and baby shower themes. I have bought plenty of clothes there (especially since they had elephants embroidered on them), his cloud play mat ( as seen in these pics), lots of blankets, bunny rugs and muslin wraps (as they sell large ones, and he is a long baby!), socks, his bouncer, the baby bath, sheets and baby coat hangers ( which I found surprising hard to find anywhere else).
So of course, already being a big fan of Target‘s baby range, when they offered for me to work with them on a post, I got rather excited.
I am part of several forums with other mums, and I have heard many mum’s rave about baby swings, and how good they are at calming a baby and good for naps too. Since Henry always falls off to sleep in the car or pram, I thought the Fisher-Price Rainforest Friends Spacesaver Swing & Seat , from Target might be just the thing for him. Not to mention, it has an elephant on it!
Well Henry loves it! He enjoyed watching the elephant and being swung. With its calming vibrations and swinging action, it quickly calmed and relaxed him. He has now used it a few times for daytime naps, which is wonderful for days when he wants to be rocked as I can strap him in and do other things, rather than being stuck rocking him. So for any mums who have trouble with nap time, I recommend giving a swing a go.
Target is soon to have a BABY SALE! The ‘Target’s ‘Everything for Baby’ sale‘ So it will be a great time to stock up and get shopping, and the swing featured here will be 50% off! The sale starts the 30th Jan.
