This post is sponsored by Oribel. The items mentioned in this piece were sent in exchange for my honest review. 

Being a first-time mom can be exhausting. Not only are you trying to prepare for the arrival of your little one, but you’re also thinking about how much your life is going to change. You’ll experience a variety changes — mostly financially. 

Thinking about the expenses that are to come will make you wonder if you’re really going to be prepared for what lies ahead. 

There are many perks to parenting. One of these perks is choosing the items for your little ones to enjoy. 

Out With The Old And In With The New

When we welcomed our third child, we realized some of the items we had at home from our boys’ younger years weren’t as functional as we thought. 

Most of the items we had were from more than four years ago when we had our firstborn. Our high chair had been in a garage for more than a year and the humidity had taken a toll on it. The bassinet was something we knew we’d grow out of quickly since our little girl was a long baby. 

Although we used the bassinet for a couple of months, we did transition to something more fitting. 

Oribel, a company whose mission is to create original ideas and smart design to surprise and delight families, sent over two items for us to try around the time of our third child’s arrival.

The first was the Cocoon High Chair, a multi-functional item that can be used prior to your baby’s feeding stage. Your baby can sit up or lay back and enjoy the views. We like to place our baby by the window for her to view her surroundings and enjoy watching the rain come down during the wet season in South Florida. It’s very relaxing.

She enjoys being on her own from time to time.
At feeding time, she’s very alert.
Multifunctional For Multiple Kids

Whether you’re a first-time parent or a new mom to a second or third child, having multifunctional baby products in your home can be useful. 

Our boys always want to be next to their sister — sometimes they fight over who gets to be next to her. It’s nice to know that there are products out there designed with parents in mind. 

Our little girl loves the freedom that comes with using her PortaPlay Activity Center by Oribel.

We want to please our boys, and sometimes taking turns is the last thing they want to do. With the PortaPlay Activity Center by Oribel, our boys can enjoy spending time with their sister together.

The product comes with a variety of options for your baby. If you’re like me and love the idea of a multifunctional baby product, then I recommend looking into the PortaPlay Activity Center that comes with the two child stools. You have the choice of the PortaPlay Wonderland Adventures + Child Stools Combo or the PortaPlay Forest Friends + Child Stools Combo. The two are reasonably priced for first-time and new parents alike. 

The PortaPlay Activity Center folds, it entertains and transforms as she gets older.

Each one of these items can be reused as a table and chairs set — perfect for our little girl’s room. I can already imagine all the tea parties and games she’ll play on the set. 

As for now, the boys are enjoying the use of the two stools as a way to keep an eye on their little sister as she plays with the toys available from the PortaPlay Wonderland Adventures option. 

Why Multifunctional?

Choosing the right products for your family isn’t always easy. With a variety of options in the market, you almost feel overwhelmed with everything. 

To make your selection process a breeze, I shared the three reasons why we like to choose multifunctional baby products for our family and friends:

  1. You get more bang for your buck. 
    It’s a no-brainer to consider a multifunctional item based on saving some cash. Buying one item instead of two can save space as well. 
  2. The item lasts longer. 
    Products that are made for more than one purpose are often more durable than the ones made for one.

  1. This looks and sounds great. I am so much more concerned with my babynow than I used to be. So important to have this baby stuff.

  2. Baby gear has definitely come a long way in the 10 years since I had my kids. It’s nice when you have products that can perform different duties. Saves money and the hassle of having so many baby products!

  3. I agree, it maximises our investment but also it’s great for the envioremnt, we dont need to more things when one could do for two or three.

  4. I always look for multinational products and you can use them much longer. Great that I came to this post as I am hunting some activities for my kids and the Porta Play Activity Center will be a great start, I think.
