"I rented the Symphony for 6mos while my baby was in the NICU. It was HUGE in establishing my supply and keeping it during high stress times. The only negative is the price, it’s not feasible to buy. "
"I’ve been EPing for 6 mos. I started with a Medela Symphony, but I didn’t want to keep renting so I bought the S2 and love it! It takes a few days to find your settings but when you do it’s worth it!"
"We loved these SwaddleMes in the NICU! They wrap baby up tight and have a slit in the back for and leads/wires. It was very difficult to find NICU approved swaddles, these were exaxtly what we needed!"
"Boudreaux’s Butt Paste is amazing for diaper rash! We use it every day and it keeps my baby’s bottom rash-free. The scent is light and doesn’t overpower, and it comes off of nails and fingers easily!"
"Ilex is a MUST for extreme diaper rash! We use it whenever my babe’s bottom starts to become irritated and it creates a strong barrier instantly, allowing the area to heal. It’s $$ ($24) but worth it!"
"Our occupational therapist doesn’t recommended using the Bumbo. My baby was extremely premature and receives OT- the therapist shared that the Bumbo forces the baby’s legs into an unnatural position."
"The Sit-Me-Up has been huge for my daughter’s development. Once she was able to hold her head up, the Sit-Me-Up allowed her to sit with support and work on core strength which she desperately needed."
"My daughter is in the NICU and requires specialized clothing, and BabyGap has many styles that we can use (snap down the front, rompers, dfootless sleep and plays, etc). Their organic Cotton is great!"
