"Helps me tell how long baby is nursing on each side, how long it has been since he nursed, how long his naps are and how long it has been since his last nap. It has helped me determine if he is hungry or tired when fussy and how much time I have between naps and feedings."
"I love being able to see the baby during naps and in the middle of the night. It helps to know when to go in to his room and when I can wait and he will go back to sleep on his own. It gives me a sense of comfort that I can keep an eye on him no matter where I am in the house."
"I loved these swaddle blankets for my newborn in the winter. We used them until he started rolling because they kept him warm at night when you can't use blankets in the bassinet/crib. Sometimes we would swaddle both arms down or leave arms out as he got older to suck on his thumb and move around."
"This became my baby's lovey. I got it as a shower gift because my shower was owl themed. I went back to Amazon and bought a 3-pack to have back-ups. His little hands can grab the nubby edges and thin, soft blanket. Angel Dear makes a bunch of different ones - check them out on Amazon."
"Loved this play mat for the subdued colors - looked nice in living room. Baby has loved this at different stages. INVALUABLE. He made friends with the birdie with rattle tummy early on when learning to bat at things and then moved onto the birdie with the ring when he could grab. So far, 0-6 months it is a hit."
"We used the bassinet in the Pack-n-play in the living room for naps when the baby was very little. He outgrew it pretty quickly, but, at 6 months, we still use the changing station on it in the living room. We have yet to actually use it for the baby to sleep in, but he has slept in other pack-n-plays when traveling. I think this is a great, versatile item."
"My baby didn't use the bouncer seat much in general, but I put him in it in the bathroom so I could take a shower when he was little. I put a little bar toy near his feet and he could kick at the hanging toys while I showered. I did this for 2-3 months and it was great instead of waiting until he napped to shower."
"I got this in black (Jake) - but the slate color is great. I love this stroller and customer service. One of the hooks on the top part of the seat was broken and they replaced the entire top part for free. I also liked the bassinet for when the baby was first born. We used it when we traveled and he slept in it as a bed - we got our money's worth."
"I got this in "cubes" I think. Good car seat rated well by Consumer Reports. It clicks in easily to base and my husband finds it easy to move the base from car to car. I think it is a little heavy and, if I had known better, I may have gotten a Snap-n-go or the Chicco adapter for my stroller instead of struggling with carrying it. But I got it for safety."
"These blankets are great for everything - covering baby while sleeping in stroller or carseat, playing peekaboo, covering baby in sun. They are very light-weight and breathable. I got them as a gift and it will be the gift I give to others. Multipurpose blankets!"
