Baby Gear Recs 23

I'm keeping a list of shit I've purchased/used/heard rave reviews about from family/friends throughout my son's first year(s). May it inspire you/give you ideas/save your sanity as you navigate the consumer part of being a new parent. It tends to work chronologically - so fresh baby stuff is at the bottom and I add to it as the months go by. ALSO - try not to get bogged down so much by specific items. I may have linked a bouncer because that's the one I happen to have, but most bouncers do the same thing. If you find it cheaper elsewhere, go for it!
