"The carseat is very easy to install using the LATCH system, and popping it in/out of the base is a breeze. The stroller is lightweight and folds easily, but it's a bumpy ride if not on smooth ground. "
"We use these as an inexpensive burp cloth option. They're not as thick as others, but get the job done. They wash easily and get softer over time, but tend to shrink a bit and wrinkle up in the wash."
"These are perfect for when you don't have a sink to wash parts, or a fridge to keep part in, between pump sessions. Also great for wiping clean tables/chairs, etc. if you're pumping in shared spaces! "
"I've been using this pump for 18 months and have no complaints. Works great. Motor has held up. I replace my parts every 2-3 months. This pump is as effective as the hospital grade one I was renting. "
"Got these to use as heat packs to help relieve clogged ducts, but they can also be used as cold packs for engorgement. A few seconds in the microwave heats them up, and they come with cloth covers to then put on your breast. These are much better than boiling water in a diaper! Only wish they retained heat a little longer."
"Our lactation consultant provided this to help baby learn to latch after we had difficulty the first few days. It's cumbersome to stay in place, especially if baby moves while nursing, but it helped. "
"This really helps position baby well for breastfeeding. Side buckle helps it stay in place snug against you. It is cumbersome to move (while holding baby) if you nurse in football hold and need to switch sides. Also, the fabric is soft but not waterproof, so any leaks or spit up can get to the spongy pillow underneath."
"These were great for introducing purees in a baby-led way. The short handles and wide grip made it easy for baby to maneuver them and work on fine motor skills with dipping! They double as teethers. "
"This is a wonderful little white noise maker and night light. You control it from your phone (or the device), and can adjust sound, color, brightness, volume, timer, and more depending on your needs. "
"Got this as a gift, and so glad we did! It does the trick to calm down baby when we put her to sleep. Volume is adjustable, and there are two time settings (15 or 30 min). A lifesaver for your voice! "
"Yes, you could use a plastic cup, but this is so much better! The flexible silicone means I'm not worried about bumping baby's head, and it's large enough so that two fill-ups rinse baby thoroughly. "
"For a diaper pail - this does the trick. It's sturdy, easy open, and you can use regular trash bags. It keeps out the stink when closed, however, the inside smells awful even after cleaning & airing."
"Wirecutter recommends this one for a reason. It's easy to clean (follow the recommendations!), there's no visible mist (no build up of condensation!) and replacement filters are relatively inexpensive"
"These work great, and we love that they have minimal ingredients. No skin irritation here! They are much moister than other wipes, too. The wipes can stick together and be difficult to pull from pack."
"Baby sits comfortably in this, though mine won't sleep it in. Good for playing, interacting, or reading to her. It props her up a bit too, so it's great after eating. Cover is removable for washing. "
"This prevented any stretch marks during my pregnancy! I started using during the second trimester and would apply after a shower each day. The oil can transfer to clothes, so give it time to absorb. "
"Our LO loves this walker. It's perfectly sized for early toddler years. The wooden wheels make it a little harder to move, but that resistance is actually great for helping with balance and strength. "
"I love all Copper Pearl products! These beanies are so soft, small enough for newborn but stretchy enough to grow with baby. The knot is adjustable to get a great fit. Baby is always stylish with these hats! "
"Inexpensive and perfect for the first few weeks home when you dress/undress frequently for skin to skin time. The side snaps make for easy on/off and the open bottom allows the umbilical cord stump to air out better than in onesies. You'll get good use out of these! "
"So. Much. Better. than the peri bottle you'll get at the hospital. The angled sprayer works wonders for keeping a sore bottom clean while you recover. You only use for a short time, but it's worth it!"
"This book is written so empathetically by a breastfeeding and room/bed-sharing mom. She offers solid information on what's "normal" and lots of suggestions of strategies to try, all while allowing room for you to find what's best for you. "
