"Never used this for nursing, but christopher used it alot for napping and playing. either on his back or belly, it made it so he could see better. he could stretch his arms and push up, it was good practice."
"we started using this when we moved into the house. it's super easy to take the tray on and off. i like how there is a bump on the bottom of the seat (as opposed to teh tray), because he trys to wiggle out when you are unbuckling him. it is the "Healthy Care" model, any pattern in this style would be the same. There is a more mellow one too."
"we were paranoid about bumpers being unsafe, so we used this one. we found one on diapers.com that had a pattern. it was pretty good at keeping his arms and legs in without us having to worry about him burying his face in it."
"he moved into this about 6 or 7 months. he got too long for the infant carseat. we got this one because we figure we can use it until he's ready to transition to a booster seat. it is very easy to adjust the height of the shoulder straps, no need to take it all apart, just slides up and snaps in place."
"We got two of these. they worked well and fit our changing table. get a cover for them and get a few. otherwise if she pees or spits up, it will just roll right into her hair or something and make cleanup that much harder."
"we liked pampers. we tried huggies, they are cheaper, but we didn't think they were near as thin and comfortable. we are still using pampers. you will get some at the hospital. no need for the ones with the 'wet indicator' trust me. she will be wet pretty much constantly as a newborn so just change her all the time and no problems."
"we keep one of these in each car. they aren't cheap, but they are awesome and we use them all the time. they fit everything. costco, target, highchairs, swings, you name it. they are very secure and easy to use."
"just last week we moved him to a real tub. i would get a baby tub with a sling for when she's a newborn. they are slippery little buggers. this one worked for us, but probably any tub with a sling would be okay."
"LOVE this stroller. it is a snap to fold, is very light and fits easily in the car. this is the one we take to teh mall or the park. it won't work well until he can sit up, but it does have a recline. we got this about a month ago. you will find that you have to buy different strollers for different uses."
"We got one kinda like this one. Had a changer and bassinet. I liked how the changer was up a bit higher and there were pockets for things like the diapers, wipes and creams. We used this as his bassinet in our room for the first few months."
"i just loved this. it was a gift at my shower and we bought another as a result. he was wrapped up so tight! i didn't have to worry about the blanket getting over his face or coming loose. skip the 'receiving blankets', you need stretchy blankets for swaddling."
"this is the mirror we have. one in each car. it's nice to have, when you are wondering what is going on. a few weeks ago, christopher had gotten something into his mouth that he shouldnt have and sumon was able to see him in the mirror to pull over and get it out!"
"we have one of these in my car to keep the seats from being damaged by the carseat being jammed in there. i think it is more for when they are dropping half-eaten cheerios on your seats, but this also keeps the plastic from cutting into the fabric."
"We had this in gray. when she is a newborn her little head will wobble all over, this was perfect for when he was still a little guy. it's easy to put in and is way better than the flimsy one that comes with the carseat."
"i got these at my shower, and they are extremely absorbant. use them as burp cloths or as an extra layer of protection on the changing pad. we even laid one under his head at times so that when he spit up (it happens all the time) it wouldn't get all over our bed sheets. we ended up buying a bunch."
