New baby recommendations

A Listmania! list by Joanne Harkness "momtoalex1" (Baltimore, Md)
(REAL NAME)   
The list author says: "I'm a mom to two kids under three. My first baby was colicky and my second is totally different, so here are my "strongly recommended" items to save your sanity and keep everybody as happy as possible in those early months."
Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing, Starlight
1.  Fisher-Price Papasan Cradle Swing, Starlight by Fisher-Price
The list author says:
  "The side-to-side motion is what both of my kids really enjoyed (although this swing also goes front to back). This was the only thing (that wasn't attached to me) that my son would nap in. My baby girl loves looking at the star lights and listening to the soothing sounds."

Fisher-Price Deluxe Infant to Toddler Rocker, Alpha Fun
2.  Fisher-Price Deluxe Infant to Toddler Rocker, Alpha Fun by Fisher-Price
The list author says:
  "I love this because it's sturdy, mobile, and perfect for putting your baby in while you're doing other things. I always found myself wanting to use her car seat, but she would get sweaty or uncomfortable (from the seatbelts) and laying her flat would start her fussing... this does the trick. It also has a vibration function and overhead rattles that she likes."

Miracle Blanket Baby Swaddle Blanket, Beige
3.  Miracle Blanket Baby Swaddle Blanket, Beige by Miracle Blanket
The list author says:
  "Life saver! A very good way to get a baby to sleep on his/her back without startling themselves awake every hour or so. Also, my colicky son was very calmed by being swaddled and the miracle blanket is very hard to escape! This is too big for newborn swaddling. Good to use after they are 1 or 2 months old. The popular Kiddapotomas swaddle blankets work just fine for the first 6 weeks or so."
$31.99

MAYA WRAP Lightly Padded Baby Ring Sling Carrier (MEDIUM - BRIGHT STRIPE)
4.  MAYA WRAP Lightly Padded Baby Ring Sling Carrier (MEDIUM - BRIGHT STRIPE) by Maya Wrap
The list author says:
  "I love "baby wearing"! Both of my babies loved being in the sling and I could easily do chores, go for long walks or to the store fairly easily with this. And I just love having my babies close to me. The downside is that once they start to get heavier, it starts to put to much weight on one shoulder and can get uncomfortable after an extended period of time."

5.  OsoCozy 6 Pack Prefolds Unbleached Cloth Diapers, Size 1 by OsoCozy

LA Baby 4 Sided Changing Pad 32", White
6.  LA Baby 4 Sided Changing Pad 32", White by LA Baby
The list author says:
  "This changing pad is a little smaller than the normal ones. We just put it on top of a dresser to make an instant "changing table". Also have a second changing pad for our living area, so we don't have to walk babies up to the bedroom every time they have a messy diaper."

Graco Pack 'N Play Playard with Bassinet, Kensly
9.  Graco Pack 'N Play Playard with Bassinet, Kensly by Graco Baby
The list author says:
  "Any pack-n-play is a must have for traveling with a baby. My mom & sister both keep one at their houses and we actually used the bassinet function of the pack-n-play as the bassinet in our room. I found the "changing table" function to not be an added benefit. The weight limit is too low and the bassinet can function for changing too."

Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer (Colors may vary)
10.  Munchkin Warm Glow Wipe Warmer (Colors may vary) by Munchkin

Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier with Auto Shut-Off
11.  Vicks Warm Mist Humidifier with Auto Shut-Off by Vicks
The list author says:
  "A must during the cold/flu season... especially if you are sending your kid to a day care environment and they get the "day care" congestion. The humidifier we have you can put these menthol vaporizor pads that help clear their congestion, which is important because babies only breath through thier noses at first."

Fisher-Price Rainforest Melodies and Lights Deluxe Gym
12.  Fisher-Price Rainforest Melodies and Lights Deluxe Gym by Fisher-Price

  "My colicky son never used this, but my baby girl loves it. She stares up at the rattles and kicks her legs, sometimes for as long as 30 minutes by herself, longer if I'm sitting beside her."

Evenflo Splash Mega Exersaucer
13.  Evenflo Splash Mega Exersaucer by Evenflo
The list author says:
  "Starting at about 5 months, babies can spend a lot of time in these exersaucers and entertaining themselves. We actually got one from a consignment shop. They're all very similar, I think. The babies can bounce in them and turn and look at all the activities on the saucer."

Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System, Miro
14.  Chicco Cortina Keyfit 30 Travel System, Miro by Chicco
The list author says:
  "We got this expensive combo but have been happy with both. The stroller is bulky, but you can fit a ton of stuff on or under the stroller. The seat back is adjustable & goes completely flat, which I have found to be a great changing table when there is nothing else around.  I especially like the bar across the stroller for older babies to put cherrios while you roll along."

15.  Fisher-Price Space Saver High Chair, Scatterbug by Fisher-Price

The Nursing Mother's Companion - 6th Edition
16.  The Nursing Mother's Companion - 6th Edition by Kathleen Huggins
