Baby Bathtub - Although you can use the sink, having a baby bathtub provides more support and helps manage a wet, slippery baby. Nursery Decor - A mobile or a night light brightens up your nursery. Wall decals create a lovely atmosphere as well. Second Car Seat Base - If you’ve got two cars, having a second car seat base will make your life so much easier.
"Jogging strollers" are sporty three-wheelers you can run with, though now there are some three-wheel strollers that are not for jogging, just for show. Finally, an "umbrella stroller" is a small, lightweight stroller that's more or less a fabric sling on a frame, suitable for a baby 6 months or older. It's the stroller you'll pooh-pooh initially, but will love by the time you've got a toddler and are fed up with lifting, folding, and pushing anything larger.
Does it have the features you want? Once your child is old enough, it's nice to have the bar on the front of the stroller swing open and shut so he can climb in by himself. But if there's not a bar, there's probably a snack tray, and those are nice too. All good strollers have locking wheels, and they all have harness straps, but five-point harnesses are considered the safest. Look for a removable seat cushion for easy washing. We know plenty of parents who, despite all of this, still buy based on brand name, color, or some other superficial reason, like the stroller being named after a car. So be it you have to live with it. A better way to choose if you're overwhelmed is to get a solid recommendation from a friend you trust, who has a lifestyle similar to yours.
Diaper Stackers - This is another baby item that many people buy because it will fit into the theme of their nursery. At first, it seems like a good idea to put your diapers in a decorative bag that is hooked onto your changing table. But after a while, the diapers end up stacked on the changing table for easier access. Also, some diaper stackers can be very expensive (up to $100). It’s just not worth spending that much money on something that will become useless or at best is unnecessary.
