10 Things For Baby I Couldn't Live Without
Last week another blogger posted 13 of the most unnecessary baby products. Some of which I agree with. I wrote recently about my lack of love for the Diaper Genie. I am less impressed with the wipes warmer, not to mention the lung clogging baby powder.
There are many baby things that I LOVE and couldn't live with out so I thought that I would take the time to list them.
10. Kate Spade Diaper Bag - I received this as a shower gift from my girlfriend and it has been a lifesaver when I am taking the baby out. This bag is big enough to carry my stuff as well as his. We all know that when you have a baby you no longer get to carry a purse so you must carry a fabulous diaper bag. It has enough room in it for a couple changes of clothes and 2 spots for bottles at each end which I love.
9. JJ Cole Original Bundle Me Infant - No Snow suit needed with this car seat bunting bag. Over the winter this was my savior. I just had to put a sweater and a hat on the baby and then pull the whole thing over top of him. It saved me when I was going into places where people were smoking at the front doors and when we were in elevators and people were coughing. It not only kept him warm but it covered his face so that the germs and smoke didn't get at him.
8. Baby Bjorn Baby Carrier - I still use this carrier almost everyday. I actually have two, one for around the backyard (which I purchased second hand) and one for when I am out shopping (I purchased new). Our son loves to look out as I'm sure most kids do. When we are out at the mall he will stay happy for hours if he is in this carrier. It has saved me on many days around the house when he is crabby. I just snap him in and then get the chores done.
7. Madison Playard with Bassinet - A great retreat for the baby when I am busy around the house. It feels good to know that you can put them in here, come back a few minutes later and they are still there and okay!! He also enjoyed sleeping in this when he first came home from the hospital. It was nice for us because we could make sure he was still breathing without having to run upstairs every 5 mins.
