Baby Gear / July 17, 2018 / Baylee Felton.
Bodysuits - More popularly known as onesies, the main thing to consider here (besides cuteness) is how easy it is to peel baby in and out of them. Babies are very squirmy, so make sure you get ones that don’t have too many snaps or buttons. Sleepers Gowns - A kind of newborn pajamas that makes diaper changing much easier (they’re also called sleep bags, sleepsacks, or wearable blankets).
A Place to Park Your Baby: Rocker, Bouncer, or Swing. Babies find motion soothing, but your arms get tired from rocking them all the time. Rockers, bouncers, and swings give you a place to park your baby while you take care of things or get a shower. Bouncers and rockers (not to be confused with adult rocking chairs, also called rockers or gliders) vibrate or move with a manual push. Swings are machine-powered (so you don’t have to keep pushing them), and they’re more expensive.
Bedding - On the cover of every baby gear catalog, there is always a crib with a nicely laid out quilt and bedding set complete with bumper and dust ruffle. Most of them are very cute and they tend to set the theme of the room. However, bedding for a baby is not only completely unnecessary, it is also a risk factor for Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). In fact, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends not putting any soft bedding in, on, or near a crib. This includes bumpers as well. Truly, the only bedding a baby really needs is a sheet. If your baby is cold, put them in a wearable blanket or footed pajamas instead of baby bedding. You can still design a strongly themed nursery without the bedding.
Believe it or not, other young people and their parents are observing and always ask "where'd you get that? We have read and heard that positive compliments make everyone feel special. Imagine how important this makes your little one feel. The messages on the T-shirts are positive. One T-shirt that's a favorite says, "Future Genius", another which is personalized has your favorite University on the front. One even has colorful Math signs like plus, minus signs, etc. Who could resist this?
