Moby Wrap - My son has a really big personality and a really big voice to go along with it. He is extremely vocal about what he wants, and most of the time, his number one want is to be held. Holding a baby can be an amazingly peaceful thing, but holding a baby 247 is not only impractical, it can also drive you a little nuts. That is why I loved the Moby Wrap. It allowed me to carry my son with me and still have my hands free without overly straining my poor arms.
There is a lot of baby gear on the market these days that can significantly enhance your ability to care for your child or just make it that much easier. But sorting through the available items and making sense of the marketing hype is often overwhelming. Plus, the potential expenses can be frightening. So how do you determine what is worth spending money on and what is essentially worthless?
White Noise Machine or Soother - A little white noise can help baby sleep. It’s similar to what they hear in the womb, and it drowns out ambient sounds. Handy Bottle Accessories - The most popular bottle accessory is a cute bottle drying rack that looks like a field of plastic grass. It really does make drying bottles easier. You can also get plastic travel cases for the bottles, bottle cleaning brushes, things like that.
Want Your Car Seat and Stroller to Snap Together? Why’s it nice to have a stroller and car seat that snap together? You can take your baby out of the car without waking them up, and stroll them before they can sit on their own around seven months. A car seat and a stroller that are designed to snap together is called a "travel system." The stroller is a big, expensive purchase and there are so many models, it's not surprising that shopping for one makes new parents anxious. The good news: Any JPMA-certified stroller will do. The bad news: You'll end up buying more than one anyway as your needs change and your first stroller gets worn out. But here are some basics to get you started.
