"Probably our favorite baby product. Great for swaddling, as an everyday blanket, light carseat blanket, nursing cover up, tummy time floor mat, etc. Was great for swaddling our long newborn, when other swaddle blankets were too short."
"We have 2 diaper genies in our house, the diaper genie II in our playroom, & the II Elite in our nursery. Since we change diapers on the floor in the playroom, it's nice to not have the foot pedal of the Elite. But in the nursery, it's absolutely essential. We love the Elite in the nursery because it's taller, and also because of the hands-free foot pedal."
"Must-have bibs. I think our entire playgroup has this kind of bib. Can be wiped down daily, or thrown in the washing machine. I typically wipe down for a few days, and throw in the wash about once a week."
"We swaddled our daughter until she was about 8 months old, transitioning from a full swaddle to just under her arms (when it seemed like she didn't want to be fully swaddled anymore). We switched to the sleep sack when she began kicking her blanket off, and we wanted her to be covered during the colder months. She's 14 months now and still loves her sleeping bag."
"We used a lot of these blankets when our daughter was born. Great for swaddling, until our daughter was too long for them (3 months?) and we switched to the aden + anais muslin blankets. You'll probably want two sets of these, at least."
"Really great portable crib. When our daughter was born (after a c-section), we had her nap in this in our living room so that I wouldn't have to go upstairs to put her in crib. Each night, my husband would partially break down the pack&play and bring it up to our room, where our daughter slept each night with us for the first 8 weeks. So obviously, not a huge deal to set up or carry around."
"Great high chair. Looks nice, and works well either with the tray, or right up at our table. Super adjustable in terms of height, and the tray wipes down pretty easily. We have the comfort cushion as well, but not the infant insert (and were happy with that decision.) Our only complaint is that there is no inner lip on the tray, so food has a tendency to end up on our daughter's lap."
"Loved these, and the amazon 4-pack deal is awesome. I leaked milk until about 10 months, so I went through a lot of these, and really really liked them. They kept me dry, and I never got any kind of irritation from them."
"A must-have for nursing moms, especially at the beginning. Worked really well to apply after every feeding during the first couple of weeks, daughter didn't seem to mind it when she'd nurse. I probably stopped using this around 2 months."
"Our daughter didn't use this right away, but this was absolutely wonderful from about 3mos-6mos. She appreciated being somewhat upright, and I enjoyed having a place to put her from time to time. This was particularly nice for when I'd shower - I'd put her in this on the bathroom floor and peek at her every couple of minutes. She started to sit forward in it at 6 months, so we stopped using it."
"Definitely not necessary, but really really fun. We didn't have a swing for our daughter, so we used this after the rainforest bouncer seat didn't work for her anymore (she was able to sit forward in it). She loved the jumperoo, and like the bouncer, was a great way to keep her safe, and in one spot, while also giving her an opportunity to play and strengthen her legs."
"We registered for a cheap Graco monitor, plugged it in and immediately sent it back once we heard all of the static it produced. We bought this instead, and I can't say enough about this monitor. We LOVE the "link" light - It means that when the monitor has been quiet for a while, you know that your baby is fast asleep, and not that communication has broken between the two monitors."
"Great teething toy. A lot of our friends have the Raz-Berry teeether as well, but since we didn't use pacifiers, we didn't think she'd use the pacifier-style Raz-Berry teether. Every kid in our playgroup has a Sophie. :)"
"Yes, it's huge and heavy. But it seems way comfortable for our 1 year old, and the side impact wings seem like a must-have for us (plus they're great for toddler car-napping). We started using this when our daughter hit the height limit on the Snugride(about 6mos). For those wondering, we have a Toyota Matrix, and it fit well rear facing, and now front facing. We've also used it for air travel."
