My favorite baby gear

Annie
The list author says: "I think of myself as a practical, fugal, somewhat natural, mostly modern Christian mom. I like to keep it things that are simple, yet well-designed. I like to research and compare products-- here are my favorites."
aden and anais for Target ® Zooaroo Swaddle Wraps 4pk - Gender Neutral
aden and anais for Target ® Zooaroo Swaddle Wraps 4pk - Gender Neutral
"I find regular sized recieving blankets utterly useless for swaddling.  These are big, soft, and breathable."
"My favorite onesies.  I always have a set of these for my kids until about 18m.  Great basic set, usually cute colors, good quality.  Great on their own and under other clothing."
Graco Pack 'N Play Playard with Bassinet, Kensly (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Graco Pack 'N Play Playard with Bassinet, Kensly (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"I used one of these with the bassinet & kept my babies in my bedroom the first month or two.  Then we used it for countless trips and vacations.  Essential baby gear.  I like the regular size-- my average sized daughter outgrew the mini crib around 18 months, and we've been using the old one ever since."
Sleeping Through the Night, Revised Edition: How Infants, Toddlers, and Their Parents Can Get a Good Night's Sleep
Sleeping Through the Night, Revised Edition: How Infants, Toddlers, and Their Parents Can Get a Good Night's Sleep
"I read a lot of sleep books, and this is the one.  Mindell doesn't tell you to keep your kid in your bed til they are 9, nor does she tell you you are a lousy parent is you ever feel the urge to comfort your child.  Instead, she gives you research based methods to help you equip your children with sleeping skills (no matter what your parenting style).  I often give it to new mommies."
My Brest Friend Deluxe Nursing Pillow, Light Green
My Brest Friend Deluxe Nursing Pillow, Light Green
"Really really the best nursing pillow.  Someone gave me a Boppy when I had my firstborn, and I NEVER used it.  I got one of these when I had my second, and it is awesome.  I used it every day until about 12 months.  If you are going to nurse, get one of these!"
Lansinoh Disposable Nursing Pads - 60 ct
Lansinoh Disposable Nursing Pads - 60 ct
"I used every disposable pad, these are by far the most comfortable and least bulky."
Lansinoh HPA Lanolin 1.41 oz
Lansinoh HPA Lanolin 1.41 oz

Medela Pump in Style Advanced Breast Pump with On the Go Tote
Medela Pump in Style Advanced Breast Pump with On the Go Tote
"Efficient, reliable and high quality.  Not everyone needs and expensive electric pump, but if you do, consider this one."
timi & leslie 2 In 1 Backpack Diaper Bag, Felicity (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
timi & leslie 2 In 1 Backpack Diaper Bag, Felicity (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"I have bought and returned so many diaper bags... I like this one because it is versatile and organized.  Wear it messenger style, clipped to the stroller or as a backpack.  I also like that it is wide and stable, and doesn't fall when you set it down."
Shepherding a Child's Heart
Shepherding a Child's Heart
"My favorite Christian parenting book.  We live this book."
Read And Learn Bible
Read And Learn Bible
"We have been reading this bible every night for 4 years.  I've looked at dozens of childrens' bibles, and this is my favorite for young children.  Many stories, very biblical, and decent illustrations.  It simplifies the stories, but doesn't add or subtract too much from the biblical account."
The Bible for Children
The Bible for Children
"The next step up in kids bibles.  I got it for my son when he was 4 1/2.  It has many stories and a lot more text.  I consider it very biblical.  The illustrations are beautiful."

BABYBJORN Potty Chair, Blue
BABYBJORN Potty Chair, Blue
"Absolutely the best.  Stable design, good size, easy to clean, comfortable height and back rest.  The splash guard is effective, but smooth and has never hurt my kids.  If you are planning on having more than one child, get a neutral color, because it will last.  (We have red!)"
Babyjorn Toilet Trainer, White/Black
Babyjorn Toilet Trainer, White/Black
"Perfect seat.  It is adjustable, very stable, and easy to use.  The splash guard will protect your floors without hurting your child.  Don't waste your money on any other wobbly leaky seat."
Gerber Training Pant, 3 Pack, Girl, 18 Months (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
Gerber Training Pant, 3 Pack, Girl, 18 Months (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
"I use these during potty training.  My kids feel it immediately when they have an accident, and want to fix it.  Pullups keep them feeling dry, so there is no incentive to get to the potty!  They aren't water-proof, but they are slightly more absorbant than regular underwear."
