Now that Elle is crawling and always on the move, we have been making slight tweaks to our home in order to make sure everything is safe for her. I plan on doing a whole childproofing post next week, but today I wanted to highlight a new addition to our home that has been a real lifesaver.

We have teamed up with North States to share all about how we recently added this Play Yard to our home. We first learned about this company at the Chicago Baby Show and mentioned them a bit in this post. We felt like Elle was crawling all over the place and getting herself into trouble so we needed some sort of solution.

In order to help keep Elle in a safe contained space, we placed our new play yard around her playmate between our dinning room and living room. At first I was hesitant about how Elle would feel about this new set-up, but she absolutely LOVES it. We created her own little play area and filled it with all of her favorite toys. The exact one we have is the North States Superyard Ultimate 8 Panel and can be purchased here.

What I love about this specific style is the fact that it has a door so you can easily go in and out of the area with ease. When Elle is inside, I like to keep the door open so that she understands she is able come and go as she pleases. I also like the fact that it can be rearranged easily into hexagon, octagon, or even a square shape, which is how we have it. You also can easily remove 2 or 4 panels to fit whatever space you have.

Setting up the Superyard Ultimate is super easy too! The 8 interlocking panels are pre-connected so all you have to do is simply pull it out of the box, unfold, and connect the two ends together. It also comes with a convenient carry strap, making it easy to fold up, store away, or take with you anywhere.

North States Play Yards are an excellent and easy ways to create a safe area for your child, both indoors and outdoors. It is intended for children 6-24 months and will provide fun for your child, and piece of mind for you. Now I feel like I can cook dinner or put the laundry in the dryer, without having the worry if Elle is getting into trouble in some corner of the room.

    Omg, Elle is getting so big! It’s crazy how fast they grow, isn’t it?! I still can’t believe that Aviah’s 2 months already! You always share the most helpful and fun looking toys and activities for little ones, I know I’ll be referring to your site when the time comes for Avi.
