The newborn stage is a little bit foggy in my memory now that I have an active, adventurous, walking, talking little girl. I remember it with crisp clarity and yet it's also somewhat vague and surreal.
Although our daughter was generally a very content baby, there were nights when we weren't sure how to soothe her. I would feed her and burp her and rock her sleepily. I was sleepy, that is. She wasn't. Usually on those nights, my husband would put her in the sling and walk with her back-and-forth in our half-lit great room and let me sleep awhile.
I think it would have helped to have the Graco sweetpeace Newborn Soothing Center in moments like that. Sweepeace is the "world's only newborn soothing center." What that means - really - is that it is most decked out and luxurious swing on the market. The sweetpeace is the Lexus of baby swings.
Check out these incredible features:
Impressed? So am I...and so is my husband (and that takes A LOT when it comes to baby gear). We were especially dazzled by the iPod dock and speakers. The music quality was actually quite good and I was completely won over when I realized that I wouldn't have to listen to raindrops or those same classical lullabies (that are so common on baby swings) over and over again. We also appreciated the soft, muted colors. It fits right in to our home decor - no obnoxious or overpowering colors to contend with.
The sweetpeace center is designed for babies 5.5 to 25 pounds and retails for approximately $169.99 at Babies-R-Us, Target, Wal-Mart, and Sears. Yes, it's $170, but - remember - it comes with a swaddling blanket, a mirror, two toys, and speakers that play music!
