"Skip the infant bucket seat and save some money by getting this. This seat works from birth to at least 4yrs. Baby wear while you're out, since those bucket seats can't go on carts (huge safety hazard) and will pull out your back lugging around! This seat fits 3 across in a back seat. It's a steel frame so it's the safest there is, and it's comfy. Won't expire for 10 years! Great investment."
"Great soft structured carrier. Get this or the travel Ergo. Also folds up into it's own tiny pouch that fits easily in a diaper bag. Good from 15-45lbs, front or back carry. More ergonomic for you and baby. Nylon, so it's easy to clean, lightweight, and not sweaty. Has a hood to shield baby from sun."
"This stroller is BANGARANG: one-hand fold, adjustable handlebar, 8.5" forever tires provide a smooth ride over any terrain w/front wheel suspension & lockable swivel front wheel, padded seat reclines to a near flat position w/mesh seat top & retractable weather cover, U-shape bar for easy basket access, can do light jogging! Can use with carseat, too."
"You can buy this used to save some $. It has a good resell value, too because it's made so well. Studies support having baby sleep next to you is best to decrease SIDS risk & this lets you do it safely. It also helps baby sleep better, too!"
"Find & Buy it used, but this is a great pack n play. It folds up SUPER slim, is light, and sets up in less than 30 seconds (seriously, it just pops right up...so cool!). Take down is quick, as well. Seriously, try to set up/take down a regular pack n play then try this. You'll thank me later."
"Buy it used (the fabric comes off and is washable). This thing is the best. Baby controls the rocking with their kicks, it has different reclines, and can be used till they're 2. I think the weight cut off is 30 lbs? Totally worth it."
"I love these. We have a bagillion pairs. Just slap on a onesie and these and diaper changes are warm but easy access! Or put them on under pants for extra warmth. Can be used as arm warmers when kiddo is older, too."
"After trying multiple diaper bags (including designer ones) this ended my search. Biggest selling point is the strap-it distributes weight so your shoulders/back NEVER hurt! I can also fit a lot into it. As a cloth diaper mama, there's more stuff than a usual bag. I like that the interior has dividers. I use this with two kids now & it's great! Search the internet for this-you won't be sorry."
"Great reusable wipes case, but without the annoyance of opening from the side and having wipes fall out when in use. The red button on the top slides back so you can grab one wipe at a time with ease. Loads of mom friends ask where I got mine."
"This is the best baby lotion we've found. Smells great, made naturally, no irritations, AND it helps with a host of skin issues (baby acne, cradle cap, eczema). To save money you can buy this in gallon form from the California Baby site!"
"Sunscreen is usually advised against under 6mo, but this was made by pediatricians to be used by all ages. AND its easy application with wipes! They make a lotion version, too. I keep the wipes in my diaper bag for on-the-go."
"The bulb syringe was a nightmare for our son when he's congested. This works faster, gentler, and is more hygenic. Don't be freaked out by the idea-you don't actually inhale snot! Now our son ASKS for this when he's stopped up! And our daughter doesn't hate it either."
"I found the Boppy to put my son too high and it wasn't ergonomic for breastfeeding, which caused a lot of back/neck pain. This was perfect and as an added bonus-has back support built in! I cannot stop singing the praises of this pillow."
"As far as pumps, this is hospital grade pumping (aka getting more milk in less time) & is recyclable. The pump is also made (and FDA approved) to share (by purchasing your own personal accessory kit) so buy it used."
"A bit of a splurge, but they also work as a great bib (because they have snaps in it and it's a curved shape), and they do cover all those places other burp cloths seem to miss when your kid goes into exorcist-puke mode..."
