Cascade is a must for my multiple daily dishwasher loads (we tried off brands, but don't skimp on this!). Dr. Pepper is my little caffeine jolt:) Almonds are my snacks. iBreastfeeding app is what I use every time I feed Katie. Tide detergent is used constantly throughout the day! My calendar (yes, the same brand I have used since jr. high!) with a pencil so I can erase, as my schedule is always changing. JIF peanut butter is my daily breakfast.
Thermometer, a must! This is the best you can get!
Dr. Brown is a reliable brand.
Keeps amount of air flow down so they won't spit up or burp as much.
GLASS bottles just seem like they stay cleaner to me:)
BOPPY CHANGING PAD LINERS - This was a huge life saver. We laid it on top of the changing pad and could easily throw it in the washer machine (instead of washing the whole changing pad).
Breastfeeding moms need this!!!
I could not live without my BOPPY pillow! I use it every time I feed Katie. I also prop her up on it to play with her.
Most moms that pump use this (Medela Swing).
Those that work or pump a lot use this double Medela Pump...the best money can buy.
For engorgement or occasional pumping...this is the manuel pump I use:) I'm not very educated on pumps, but these are the three different levels of pumps.
Again, a must in the beginning to avoid leaking.
I feel Lansinoh Nursing Pads are softer than other brands.
Some moms use the diaper pail, some use disposable diapers, I use the DIAPER GENIE II ELITE! Love it!
Wubbanubs are a favorite around our house - easy to find, stays in her mouth, throw it in the wash, and a little snugly for the baby.
Pottery Barn Specials:
We love the swaddle SleepSack made by HALO (sold in most baby stores, online, and Amazon). Neither of my girls could sleep without being swaddled. Some never use this, while I use it everyday for naps and every night for bed.
*Chamois is a warm, soft material sold exclusively by PB. We have their SleepSacks, blankets, changing pad cover, and sheet.
This is a bit cooler material for those summer babies.
Great diaper bag! Easy access and not too many compartments that make you feel overwhelmed.
Car Seat!!!! Choose wisely, you will use this ALL THE TIME!!! We went with the GRACO SnugRide Infant Carseat. This only holds the baby up to 22lbs, but by the time they reach that weight, you can turn them around and put them in their next carseat.
Some go with the heavier carseats, but you will carry this thing EVERYWHERE! We love our Graco SnugRide Infant Carseat!
Spend the money on the base! Get one for your husband, grandparents, babysitter, whoever might be toting your baby around! Well worth the money!
We used some gift money and bought a GREAT stroller, The BOB! Instead of having multiple strollers, this was the only one we had for the first year (we bought the CHICO umbrella stroller around a year).
This was a useful accessory.
BOB Revolution SE 2011 Graco Car Seat Adapter
With this, you can put the carseat into the BOB stroller. GREAT BUY!!!!
