Baby's First Year

A Listmania! list by CMC "CMC" (Evanston, IL United States)
The list author says: "Here are things I had or wish I had in my baby's first year. This is not an exhaustive list---there is endless gear to buy or borrow! I did not put on a swing or a newborn bathtub because I don't think there was anything special about the ones we had.
Also, don't forget an awesome diaper bag!"
Graco SnugRide Infant Car Seat - Zarafa
1.  Graco SnugRide Infant Car Seat - Zarafa by Undefined
The list author says:
  "Obviously you need coordinating bases for your cars. This is the Snugride, which pretty much everybody gets, and which can be $ or $$$ depending on the fabric. You may find a better selection at diapers dot com, babies r us or buy buy baby."

Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Stroller Frame
2.  Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Stroller Frame by Graco
The list author says:
  "This one folds a little more easily than the Snap n Go brand stroller frame. There is a maclaren stroller frame that is a little pricier and is also very nice. All will work with the snugride car seat."
$119.89   Used & New from: $104.76

My Brest Friend Deluxe Pillow, Light Green
3.  My Brest Friend Deluxe Pillow, Light Green by Zenoff Products
The list author says:

Boppy Pillow with Slipcover, Lots O Dots
4.  Boppy Pillow with Slipcover, Lots O Dots by Boppy

Quick Clean Breastpump Accessory Wipes 24 Pack
6.  Quick Clean Breastpump Accessory Wipes 24 Pack by Medela

Medela Freestyle Spare Parts Kit
8.  Medela Freestyle Spare Parts Kit by Medela
The list author says:
  "Having more than one set of pump parts lets you have one set in the dishwasher, one set in your bag, and (if you have 2), one set ready to go. The pump comes with a set of parts, so you ideally need 2 spare parts kits, but you can get by with just 1. Don't forget Medela PersonalFit breastshields to match your nip size (sold separately)"

Bumkins SuperBib 3 Pack Dr. Seuss
12.  Bumkins SuperBib 3 Pack Dr. Seuss by Bumkins
The list author says:
  "These bibs are the best ones for finger food/table food. You'll also need some terrycloth bibs for nursing/bottles, drool, and starting pureed solid foods. The bibs that come with outfits are great for drool and OK for nursing."

Moby Wrap Original 100% Cotton Baby Carrier, Black
16.  Moby Wrap Original 100% Cotton Baby Carrier, Black by Moby Wrap
The list author says:
  "This is the baby carrier I had (plus a Bjorn). I love it for around the house, it's quite versatile. But the Ergo is an all-in-1 carrier, great from newborn through toddler. Also, dads don't really like the moby because it can be tricky to put on."

Munchkin White Hot Inflatable Duck Tub
21.  Munchkin White Hot Inflatable Duck Tub by Munchkin
The list author says:
  "This tub is great for a baby big enough to sit unsupported. We place it in the big tub and it provides good protection and you can fill it full enough that baby has room to splash without getting cold. Also it quacks."
