Keeping it Simple with Baby

A Listmania! list by Jenna Vincent (Charlottesville, VA United States)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "We're a family who strives to reduce the amount of trash we create, reduce the amount of chemicals in our household, and minimize "baby clutter". For us, this means cloth diapering, natural cleaning agents, and purchasing products that will have a long lifespan or multiple uses/benefits."
Tadpoles Organic Cotton Pin-Stripe Kimono-Style Bodysuit, Cocoa, 0-3 Months
1.  Tadpoles Organic Cotton Pin-Stripe Kimono-Style Bodysuit, Cocoa, 0-3 Months by Tadpoles
The list author says:
  "It totally sucks to get a lap-sleeve or snap-neck outfit over a newborn's floppy head. Kimono-style is the way to go! Our son HATED being dressed and this curbed the screaming. Get the onesie style because regular shirt hems ride up to the armpits on new babies."

California Baby Diaper Area Wash - Non-Burning & Calming, 6.5 oz
2.  California Baby Diaper Area Wash - Non-Burning & Calming, 6.5 oz by California Baby
The list author says:
  "This really helps get baby cleaner with less wiping- especially with that sticky not-exclusively-breastfed poop. Also good if baby has a diaper rash and you don't want to have to wipe as much."
$12.63   Used & New from: $9.46

FuzziBunz Perfect Size Cloth Diaper, Apple Green, Small 7-18 lbs
3.  FuzziBunz Perfect Size Cloth Diaper, Apple Green, Small 7-18 lbs by FuzziBunz
The list author says:
  "Really soft and relatively trim. I prefer the perfect size because the one-size has an adjustable leg toggle that leaves red marks on my daughter.  A size medium will probably fit your baby from 6-9 months til potty learning. Also, the wide opening in back allows you to shake out the insert into the washer. Awesome resale value too!"

Babies R Us Washcloth - 8 Pack (White)
4.  Babies R Us Washcloth - 8 Pack (White) by Gerber
The list author says:
  "These are small and super-thin for a washcloth, but they're great as baby wipes! We just used these with a homemade solution (or water) in a spray bottle for wiping. Laundered well with our cloth diaper loads. Worked better than commercial wipes!"

Biokleen - Bac-Out Stain & Odor Eliminator - 32 oz.
5.  Biokleen - Bac-Out Stain & Odor Eliminator - 32 oz. by Bi-O-Kleen
The list author says:
  "Works amazingly well at removing stains and stink in our cloth diapers!"

Behrens 6106 6-Gallon Locking Lid Can
6.  Behrens 6106 6-Gallon Locking Lid Can by Behrens
The list author says:
  "All plastic diaper pails will stink in less than a year- no matter how well or regularly you clean them. Get a metal one and it will last you til potty training."
$17.48   Used & New from: $13.87
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (491 customer reviews)

ERGObaby Original Collection Baby Carrier, Black/Camel
7.  ERGObaby Original Collection Baby Carrier, Black/Camel by ERGObaby
The list author says:
  "No back pain whatsoever and very easy to get on and off when using as a front-carrier.  Difficult to use as a back-carrier without a 2nd person helping at first. Gets easier with practice. I think this is way better than the bjorn carrier for a baby because it supports his upper legs in a natural sitting position rather than suspending him from his crotch!"
$115.00
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (482 customer reviews)

Moby Wrap Designs Baby Carrier, Owl
8.  Moby Wrap Designs Baby Carrier, Owl by Moby Wrap
The list author says:
  "Easiest way to carry a newborn. Takes practice to get a hang of managing this long length of fabric (hint: don't put it on loosely and it will support you and baby much better). Baby is in a perfect calming position should he be colicky or refluxy, and his head and neck doesn't get kinked the way it often will in a sling. I used this exclusively for the first 5 months."

Miracle Blanket Baby Swaddle Blanket, Beige
9.  Miracle Blanket Baby Swaddle Blanket, Beige by Miracle Blanket
The list author says:
  "Our baby needed to be swaddled tightly until he was 3 months old in order to settle down or sleep. If we didn't do a good swaddle job with the receiving blankets he'd break out in 2 seconds and start screaming. This saved us many do-overs in the middle of the night."
$28.95   Used & New from: $25.00

Drawer Organizer - Dream Drawer (White) (4"H x 12 - 18"L)
10.  Drawer Organizer - Dream Drawer (White) (4"H x 12 - 18"L) by Dial
The list author says:
  "Any brand of spring-loaded drawer divider will do. Makes it easier to organize baby's tiny clothing and prevents the long-sleeves from getting mixed up with the short-sleeves, etc."
$15.77   Used & New from: $13.99
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (43 customer reviews)

Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Stroller Frame
11.  Graco SnugRider Infant Car Seat Stroller Frame by Graco
The list author says:
  "I wish I had this or the Kolcraft Car Seat Carrier from the beginning. When baby falls asleep in the car, the last thing you want to do his wake him to put him in a stroller or sling (especially if he's not a good sleeper or is a big crier!)"
$120.00   Used & New from: $111.99

Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Booster Seat, Blue/Green/Gray
12.  Fisher-Price Healthy Care Deluxe Booster Seat, Blue/Green/Gray by Fisher-Price
The list author says:
  "We use this as our only high chair. It fits very securely on our dining table chair, we can use it with or without the tray, it's super easy to clean and it's portable!"
$29.99
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2,871 customer reviews)

Lansinoh 20265 Disposable Nursing Pads, 60-Count Boxes (Pack of 3)
13.  Lansinoh 20265 Disposable Nursing Pads, 60-Count Boxes (Pack of 3) by Lansinoh
The list author says:
  "I tried at least 6 different nursing pads and these were the most comfortable for sore nipples and also the least visible under clothing. I wanted to use the reusable washable kind but I was a heavy leaker and only the disposables could contain the amount of milk I leaked."
$27.89   Used & New from: $22.49
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (98 customer reviews)

Lilypadz Reuseable Nursing Pads
14.  Lilypadz Reuseable Nursing Pads by LilyPadz
The list author says:
  "Once I stopped leaking so much, these were great! You can't see them at all- even under a bathing suit!"
$19.95
3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (356 customer reviews)

My Brest Friend Pillow, Sunburst
15.  My Brest Friend Pillow, Sunburst by My Brest Friend
The list author says:
  "Much more comfortable and supportive than Boppy. I like the back rest component. Baby would fall asleep on this after nursing and I could actually keep him cradled on this while I stood up and walked him back to the bed."
$34.99   Used & New from: $28.69
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (411 customer reviews)

Medela Nursing Stool - Natural Finish
16.  Medela Nursing Stool - Natural Finish by Medela
The list author says:
  "Before our baby was born, I thought a nursing stool was a waste of money and space. Wow, was I wrong! This stool lifts your legs to just the right height and tilt to allow you to relax and have better posture and no back pain!"
$129.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (117 customer reviews)

Fuzzy Bee and Friends (Cloth Books)
17.  Fuzzy Bee and Friends (Cloth Books) by Roger Priddy
The list author says:
  "This was baby's first favorite toy/lovie. It's a touch-and-feel book and the crinkly first page made him ecstatic! The only drawback is that it's not machine-washable. Surface wash only (you could wash it in the machine, but then the 'crinkle' will melt and not be as loud and appealing)."
Used & New from: $11.90

Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child
19.  Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Dr Marc Weissbluth
The list author says:
  "THE sleep bible that all new parents should read. Not written in a very intuitively organized way and may contain more information on the biology of sleep than you care to know, so read it before the baby comes and your brains get scrambled! All this stuff is backed by tons of research and his expert pediatric experience."

Babyjorn Toilet Trainer, White/Black
21.  Babyjorn Toilet Trainer, White/Black by BabyBjŲrn
The list author says:
  "Adjusts quickly and easily to fit any size or shape toilet and doesn't slip or shift around like other seats do. Bigger than other potty seats so there's no leaking through. Has a loop on top that makes it easy to store on a hook nearby. Easy to clean."

22.  Dohm-SS Single Speed Sound Conditioner by Marpac (formerly known as the Sleepmate/Sound Screen 580A) by Marpac
The list author says:
  "Pricier than other white noise machines, but worth every penny! The noise is from forced air so it doesn't have that annoying electronic sound. Helps baby sleep through anything and makes it easier to sleep when traveling places with unfamiliar noises too!"

OXO Candela Tooli, Single
23.  OXO Candela Tooli, Single by Unknown
The list author says:
  "This is great for nighttime diaper changes or feedings so you don't have to turn on a brighter light that'll wake everyone up! Also good as a nightlight when they're toddlers. We like that it's portable and can be set down anywhere. Mobi and kinderglow are other good brands."

24.  Grandma El's Diaper Rash Remedy and Prevention Jar, 3.75-Ounce by Grandma El's
The list author says:
  "Safe for cloth diapers. Heals mild diaper rash quickly. Not the greatest as a barrier/prevention cream, but I'm not aware of any cloth-diaper-safe creams that are!"
