4.  Tiny Love Fruity Pals, Anna Banana by Tiny Love

Fisher-Price Rainforest Waterfall Peek-a-Boo Soother
7.  Fisher-Price Rainforest Waterfall Peek-a-Boo Soother by Fisher-Price
The list author says:
  "Lovely for the crib. Soothing and beautiful to look at. After my daughter out-grew her crib, I let her keep her fountain near her big-girl bed. Instead of putting her in a time-out, I would sometimes tell her to crawl into her bed with her fountain to "cool down"."

Summer Infant Snuzzler Infant Support for Car Seats and Strollers, Ivory
8.  Summer Infant Snuzzler Infant Support for Car Seats and Strollers, Ivory by Summer Infant
The list author says:
  "This is one of the most important baby items to own. You'll need this for your car seat. A newborn is just too small to fit comfortably in a car seat without this. Also, this is a great item for a baby jogger stroller!"

Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Stroller Frame (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
9.  Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Stroller Frame (Discontinued by Manufacturer) by Graco
The list author says:
  "Truth is, you don't need a stroller the first 6 months or so, all you need is this. When I was pregnant, friends advised me to buy this. Your baby will fall asleep in the car, you don't want to wake her moving her into a stroller. You can avoid all of that with this. Check Craigslist for used ones."

10.  Graco SnugRide 32 Infant Car Seat, Zurich (Discontinued by Manufacturer) by Graco

Graco Pack 'N Play Playard with Newborn Napper, Broadstreet
11.  Graco Pack 'N Play Playard with Newborn Napper, Broadstreet by Graco
The list author says:
  "This was amazing, especially for the first 4 months. My daughter slept in the little bassinet, which is attached to the top  and removable. Kept this against my bed from day one. I could reach over and put my hand on her. The changing table is removable. There's a whitenoise machine with music and nature sounds. My daughter is now 9 months, I use it as a playpen."

Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder, Colors May Vary, 2 Count
13.  Munchkin Fresh Food Feeder, Colors May Vary, 2 Count by Munchkin
The list author says:
  "My daughter loves slices of cold pear in this bag now that she can hold it by herself. You can also put your baby's teething biscuit in here (when they are old enough to eat wheat) and not worry about choking on crumbs or a big piece."
$6.99   Used & New from: $5.95

HABA Fabric Mice
14.  HABA Fabric Mice by HABA
The list author says:
  "It's sounds kind of funny to rave about two little mice, but these mice are THE BEST. Both daughters loved them. My 9-month-old makes herself laugh whipping them around by the tail. When shaken, one squeaks, the other rattles.  Haba is a great toy company."

Thinkbaby Trainer Cup, Orange, 9 Ounce
15.  Thinkbaby Trainer Cup, Orange, 9 Ounce by Thinkbaby
The list author says:
  "I found this to be one of the better trainer sippy cups out there. It's a bit pricey but the munchkin ones I tried leaked, so they were a waste of money."

Lansinoh Clean & Condition Cloths, 70+10-Count Value Pack (Pack of 5)
16.  Lansinoh Clean & Condition Cloths, 70+10-Count Value Pack (Pack of 5) by Lansinoh
The list author says:
  "My pediatrician always commented that neither of my girls suffered from diaper rashes. I swear it was because I only used these wipes. Diapers.com has them. Target sells them but they're expensive. I think they are worth the money for the first couple months when baby's skin is sensitive."

Safety 1st Prograde Gentle Vibes Nail Filer
17.  Safety 1st Prograde Gentle Vibes Nail Filer by Safety 1st
The list author says:
  "I haven't actually tried this but I came across it while searching for the cardboard files I use for my girls. The best advice I got from another mom was not to use clippers-- why risk cutting the baby's skin? I buy the pack of small, cardboard travel files from the drug store and they work great."

NoseFrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator
18.  NoseFrida The Snotsucker Nasal Aspirator by FridaBaby
The list author says:
  "Don't know what I would have done without this. Normal aspirators go up into the nose, this one rests on the edge of the nostril so there's no fear of hurting your squirming baby. No need to purchase extra filters, kit comes with plenty. My pediatrician said only resort to aspirators when the baby really needs help breathing, otherwise you risk scarring the inside of their nose."

4moms Cleanwater Infant Bath Tub with Digital Thermometer
19.  4moms Cleanwater Infant Bath Tub with Digital Thermometer by 4moms
The list author says:
  "I can't say enough about this tub. Target also sells it. The Water runs clean while you bathe your baby and runs over a gauge which monitors the temp. I don't think you necessarily need a fancy tub but I loved the constant flow of clean water and knowing what the temp was during the bath."

Safety 1st Comfy Bath Cushion, Green
20.  Safety 1st Comfy Bath Cushion, Green by Safety 1st
The list author says:
  "Target sells something similar and better shaped. The idea behind this foam cushion is: You set it on the counter next to the infant tub and lay the baby's towel over it. After you're done bathing your baby you scoop her up and place her on the towel and wrap her up. It's a safe place to set her down while you wrap her to carry her into the bedroom for her diaper and PJs."

21.  California Baby Calming Baby Shampoo and Body Wash, 17.5-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 2) by California Baby
The list author says:
  "This is the purest, safest and most gentle baby wash on the market. I did tons of research. There are no chemicals, no synthetic perfumes and no ingredients that have been proven harmful (unlike Johnson & Johnson!) I've been using it now for over 2 years."

Safety 1st Tubside Kneeler Step Stool
23.  Safety 1st Tubside Kneeler Step Stool by Safety 1st
The list author says:
  "Set this in front of your tub and it will save your knees and your back. It seems like a splurge but it's actually a necessity. When they are big enough to bathe in the tub you will spend a lot of time hunched over and your knees will take a beating. This is cushioned, not hard plastic."

Kiddopotamus Dreamsie Sleeper with Sleeves Microfleece Small, Ivory
24.  Kiddopotamus Dreamsie Sleeper with Sleeves Microfleece Small, Ivory by Kiddopotamus
The list author says:
  "I have a few of these- lighter for the fall and heavier for winter. I never bought the ones with sleeves, though I wish I had. Just put a short-sleeve onsie on underneath this. SIDS research says babies should be kept cool while sleeping. (No caps during sleep.)"

Under the Nile Organic Cotton Side Snap Baby Tee NB to 6M (NB-3M, Pink)
25.  Under the Nile Organic Cotton Side Snap Baby Tee NB to 6M (NB-3M, Pink) by Under the Nile
The list author says:
  "These are super soft. Snapping on the side is better that having to pull anything over a tiny baby's wobbly head. I also like the short sleeve option for spring and summer. For sleep, I put the baby in a long sleeve side-snap with a diaper and then use the fleece sleep sack listed above."

See Me Smile Infant Mirror Brown Puppy
27.  See Me Smile Infant Mirror Brown Puppy by See Me Smile Products
The list author says:
  "I like that this is soft, just in case it falls off. Though I've had it up for almost a year and it's never slipped. I like being able to see her, and check on her. Plus, she loves looking at herself."

28.  That's Not My Puppy... (Usborne Touchy-Feely Board Books) by Fiona Watt

  "I bought 5 or 6 of the Usborne Touchy Feely books. My daughters absolutely love them. It's such an interactive reading experience for them. Perfect for babies with their short attention spans."

ERGObaby Original Collection Baby Carrier, Black/Camel (Older Version)
29.  ERGObaby Original Collection Baby Carrier, Black/Camel (Older Version) by ERGObaby
The list author says:
  "This sling came highly recommended- so glad I bought it. Very comfortable and my babies are heavy, both in the 90th percentile for weight. The Baby Bjorn hurt my shoulders. Note: this sling is for use after your baby can hold her/his head up."

Classical Baby 3-Pack - Music, Art & Dance
30.  Classical Baby 3-Pack - Music, Art & Dance DVD ~ Classical Baby
The list author says:
  "I'm not a fan of too much TV for babies but these shows are so beautifully produced, with no talking, just gorgeous classical music. Very artistic and captivating. Much better than Baby Einstein. My 3-year-old STILL loves these."

Luna Lullaby Bosom Baby Nursing Pillow, Sage Dot
31.  Luna Lullaby Bosom Baby Nursing Pillow, Sage Dot by Luna Lullaby
The list author says:
  "When I was pregnant with my first many of the veteran moms I spoke with complained that their Boppys were too small and awkward. I was reluctant because of the price but I'm so glad I bought it. It's lasted through two babies-- its' just as soft as it was when I first bought it. It's like a big comfy pillow."

Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing, Starlight
32.  Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing, Starlight by Fisher-Price
The list author says:
  "Both my babies took almost every nap in this swing. I find the swing settings to be fast, so I only ever used the lowest setting and even then I sometimes draped a light blanket across the bottom so that it would drag on the floor and slow the swing even more. Worth every penny."

Fisher-Price Rainforest Bouncer (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
33.  Fisher-Price Rainforest Bouncer (Discontinued by Manufacturer) by Fisher-Price
The list author says:
  "Do you need a bouncy plus a swing? I had both and couldn't imagine being without either. The main difference is that you can move the bouncer throughout the house, even into the back or front yard. It's how I managed to shower, wash dishes, etc. Plus, babies LOVE bouncing! It doesn't have to be fancy, sometimes less in front is better so the baby can see you."

35.  Cloud b Twilight Constellation Night Light Turtle, Classic Mocha by Cloud b
The list author says:
  "I have great memories of both my girls being mesmerized by the stars. We often sit on the bed in the dark and they try to pick the stars off my cheek or their own hands and legs. So sweet."

36.  Flip UltraHD Video Camera - Black, 8 GB, 2 Hours (2nd Generation) by Flip Video
