This is going to be a page of items that moms have submitted to me as part of their must have/don't needs. Things that are out there on the market that we can/cannot live without.
Here is the start of my list!
Must haves: 1. Boppy 2. Diaper pail (I use the Munchkin brand one and LOVE it) 3. Piddle pad
Bought but never used: 1. Monitors (now if you are far from the room that's a different story) 2. Bottle warmer (mainly a car one...took waaay too long to heat!)
Gail A says, "Baby mittens...keeps your newborn from scratching their little face!!" and "
burp cloths!!! can never have too many!!!"
Victoria P. says, "I
would say my must haves: 1. Boppy, with two covers, that way you don't
have to worry about waiting for the soiled one to wash. I used my boppy
until my son weaned. I plan to invest in the travel one to keep in the
car. Car feedings without the boppy were tough. And it made for easy
tummy time 2. Although its not a product, a lactation consultant: I
called on them several times while nursing, they were always encouraging
and helpful, and one of the main reasons I was successful in nursing.
3. Sleep sack: so much easier than having to worry about doing the
burrito with the blanket. Things I purchased but didn't use: 1. Agree on
the monitors. 2. Diaper pail: I hated changing the bags and I always
forgot to get new bags. After a few months we just used publix/walmart
bags and took them to the trash daily or immediately depending on the
