"This thing is awesome and it looks good on my counter. You can dry anything on here, unlike the other racks that are specifically for bottles. I also have the flower add-on accessory and it is perfect for pacifiers."
"This is a powerful pump and can pump a good amount of milk in a short time, which is a valuable thing to have when you don't have time to sit around! I am a stay-at-home mom and I still find this a necessary item!"
"I liked this better than Lansinoh because it glides on easier, which is a big deal with super sore nipples. Also, a lactation consultant told me any lanolin makes fantastic lip balm and she was so right!"
"We did the Munchkin diaper pail and it worked great for awhile. When it broke (I was trying to stuff too many diapers in and the lid snapped--whoops!), I decided to try this and I love it! It holds a lot more diapers and is easier to change the bags."
"Every baby is different, but these work the best for preventing leaks for my son. I wish I had just bought a bunch of size 1's because my 9 pounder only fit into newborn diapers for a week. The wetness indicator is pretty handy, too! Do subscribe and save through Amazon Mom to save even more money."
"This is the most amazing diaper cream you will ever use! My son has never gotten a rash as long as we have used this. When he did get a rash (forgot the diaper cream, doh!), this cleared it up within 1 day. I get the pound tub with subscribe and save."
"I just discovered this magical stuff. It's basically baby Windex! A few drops on a cotton ball for his face, neck, and diaper area between baths clean really well and give him a yummy baby smell :). It's non-irritating. It's a big bottle and lasts forever. It's worth the price!"
"These make the best burp cloths! You can use them for anything, really! They are huge and I have so many (because they are so cheap!) that I always have a burp cloth on hand. I use these more than my more expensive trend lab ones."
"Get these with mitten cuffs (Carters and Gerber are both fine). You can't cut your newborn's nails for awhile! These make it so much easier to change baby's diaper in the middle of the night when you don't want to deal with snaps and stuff!"
"This is the weirdest/grossest thing you will ever love! The bulb syringe from the hospital works better than anything else you could buy, but this works way better than that! A couple drops/sprays of saline and then some strong sucks on this and you will be amazed at what you can get out of your babies nose! Don't worry, there is a filter so no gross things get in your mouth."
"This is not my favorite nursing pillow (too low and leave a gap between the pillow and my belly that baby kind of rolls into because I'm not skinny enough!), but I would still get one of these because it is GREAT for setting the baby in, tummy time, and sitting up with support. See below for my favorite nursing pillow."
"I wish I had known about this when I was pregnant because it can be a pregnancy pillow, too. I know it seems expensive, but it is SO worth. It is fluffier than the boppy, so it actually brings the baby to the correct level, which saves you from aching shoulders and back. Also, it fits any size woman and you can easily switch between breastfeeding holds without rearranging the pillow."
"I could not live without these! We had a spring baby and I felt most swaddle blankets were too warm. These are perfect! They are HUGE (make sure to get the biggest size) and I have used them for burp cloths, nursing cover, stroller cover, and lots of other stuff. Look at aidenandanais.com for swaddling videos :)"
"This is my go to carrier for long outings, like when we go to the zoo or aquarium (I use my woven wrap or ring sling for shorter outings). It is so comfortable and my child's legs are in the ideal position (narrow base carriers aren't ideal for the child's hips). I can nurse in it easily, too! My 26 pound toddler is a little tall for it, but I can still easily carry him in this!"
"I used to think that full-size swings weren't worth the space they took up, so I got my firstborn a space saver swing. He liked it fine, but when he tried this swing at a friend's house and was asleep in 2 minutes, I knew I would do things differently with the next baby. So I have this now for my little girl and she loves it! It is so soft and cozy and it plugs in! I consider this an essential!"
"I actually have the 2011 model, but why not buy the latest! I don't plan on buying another stroller, which is why I spent the money on this one for my first child. 14 different configurations and I can put the car seat in it without the seat. Turns on a dime!"
"I didn't buy one, I made one (there are tons of tutorials online). I am not a seamstress at all, but they are easy to make. It keeps out germy hands in the beginning and makes a nice sun shade in the car."
"We have this in green because it was cheaper. This clicks into the stroller for comfy walks and most importantly, it's where my babies have slept at night for the first 4 months of their lives (until they move out of my room into a crib)."
"I don't know why all activity gyms are so expensive, but this is the one I wanted. I got a simpler one as a gift and it works just fine, but this has more interesting things for baby to look at. Another lifesaver that helps me get things done."
"This has a little seat that infants can sit on when they are little and it comes with a cute little fish toy that sprinkles water. Another one I was debating was the Blooming Bath (so cute and useful!)."
"Lap pads are handy for diaper changes (especially those messy newborn diapers) so you don't have to wash the changing pad cover a million times a week. They are also great for changing diapers when out and about."
