"We have the Snug a Bunny swing at our place, and the Starlight Papasan cradle swing at our parents' homes. I actually think I prefer the Starlight Papasan Swing b/c it has more features (including a better variety of songs), a removable tray (which will be useful when the baby gets bigger) and the glow-in-the-dark star mobile is really cute!"
"We started using this when the baby was almost 6 months old, and she loves it! We only keep her in for about 20 minutes a day... but I think if it were up to her, she would want to stay in there for much longer."
"This tub is great. It is very durable, and the removable infant sling is useful during the first few months, when your baby is too small for the actual tub. It also sits on the counter/sink, which is convenient."
"This is particularly useful when you have a screaming baby who needs to be changed in the middle of the night. The last thing you want to do is use a cold wipe, and this keeps the wipes warm and moist. You will want to buy some extra pillows to replace every so often."
"Have been using this bag for about 5 weeks now, and like it so far. It looks more like a purse than the canvas bags by skip hop. It holds a lot, but if you don't care about it looking like a purse, the skip hop messenger bag is nice too"
"We tried a few different brands of bottles, and like the Avent ones the most. Dr. Browns are very difficult to clean because of all of the small parts, and we did not like Medela bottles b/c the flow was too fast (even with the slow flow nipples.) Avent bottles are really easy to clean, and it's worth spending the extra $$ on them."
"A bottle warmer isn't completely necessary, but it's nice to have during night-time feedings, when you have a screaming child, and need a bottle of pumped milk heated. Bottles heat up quickly, and don't get too hot."
