JJ Cole Diaper Caddy
This may be something that isn't really necessary but I sure liked mine. It's a diaper/wipe caddy from JJ Cole. I found mine at Diapers.com for a wonderful deal too. I liked how nice it looked sitting out in my living room and it kept everything together.
Dr. Brown's Bottles
I nursed Logan from the beginning so I never have used bottles. With my first babies I nursed Ellie and bottle fed Dalton. He loved Advent bottles. They never had Dr. Brown back then. My niece Payslee bottle feeds and LOVES these!! My sister says they help with gassy tummy's and are recommended for colicky babies. She switched to Advent for awhile and Payslee got an upset belly and spit up more. So this is Mel's pick for a great bottle!
Logan got used to sleeping in his bouncer while I got ready each morning. He would fall asleep to the sound of my hair dryer. Even after he got bigger and started napping in his crib (in our room) I admit it would run long after I was done just so he would sleep longer. It helped to drown out the noises of everyone in the house. Well my blow dryer started to wear out and I started looking for other white noises. You can download Apps from Itunes that have similar noises but I wanted a CD. I found this one on Amazon that was highly recommemded. It's been wonderful to have for bedtime and naptime. The disc is 75 continuous minutes of white noise.
I thought my sister was crazy for buying these bibs because they are so pricey. You can buy cheap 5 pack bibs at any store for the price of just one of the Bumpkins bibs. Well after trying out hers and loving it I caved and bought me just one. I absolutely love them and would definitely spend my money on them. I have three now and not one has stains on it. I have had them for 3-4 months. I bought another local chain store brand and within a week they were stained and yucky. Bumpkins bibs wipe off/wash nice, stay on tight and are a great product!! Totally worth spending the extra money to have them last.
I hated those yucky, messy cookies we used to give the babies when they were teething and learning to eat:(
My mom recommended these to me when Logan got old enought to start chewing. He LOVES them!! They dissolve just like the puffs and are not messy at all. I like that they are big and will last so I can get dinner ready;)
