Philips AVENT BPA Free 3-Pack Bottles

Philips AVENT BPA Free 3-Pack Bottles

I can't say these were my favorite bottles, but they are pretty good. The biggest downside... keeping up with the extra ring, and sometimes, when you get it all put together ans shake formula, it leaks. My husband doesn't seem to notice it is leaking until half of the bottle is on my baby's outfit, hair and back. It could just be him, I seem to catch it before I feed the baby, but still, it can get kind of annoying. I will say that this helped my son with gas issues he had been having, so for that, I am willing to change s few extra outfits.

So, I saw these when my first child, but decided that it wasn't a necessity... Boy was I wrong! With child #2, I got these, and they are awesome. It clips onto a diaper bag easily, so you can find it at any time you need it! When baby makes an extra "special" diaper, these things are a lifesaver. I have put one back in my diaper bag before disposing, and not had to worry about flies following me, lol! You can't even fathom the number of paces you have to change a baby at where a trash can isn't readily available... You just don't think about it till it happens... THESE are a lifesaver!

my 8 month old like to crawl all over the tub, no matter how hard I try to keep him still for bath time. He is fascinated by the faucet and drain. He just wants to climb over the rail and get to the faucet anyways. I ended up buying a cute faucet cover.

This wipe warmer was a gift at my first child's baby shower. I struggled with keeping the thing refilled, then keeping the wipes from drying out, and finally, when in use, seeing very little difference in the actual temp by the time I got the wipe to baby's bottom. As a seasoned mom now, I would pass on this, and any wipes warmer. It is simply not worth the hassle.

Huggies wipes seem to function much better than other brands. I find the naturally refreshing wipes to have a pleasant light scent and thick enough to get the job done with fewer wipes. I love the refill bag, as it is a more economical solution. I just reuse old wipes containers or travel wipes containers and I feel like I am reducing the amount of trash I throw away by using this.

I LOVE my Moby Wrap. It is great for those who are looking for a way to carry a baby places. It can be used many many different ways, and it can seem a bit confusing the first few times you try to wrap a baby, but It is hands down the best option I have found. I have tried an ergo, a snugli, and a ring sling prior to the moby. With the snugi and ergo, no matter what I did, I had shoulder/back strain and the straps would dig in. I am a bigger chested gal, and it made life difficult with these carriers too. The ring sling would throw me a little off balance and just simply didn't feel as safe. As far as the Moby is concerned, The material is not stiff enough for larger (over 20 lb) babies, but works well for the younger baby. All in all, a great, versatile option.

I have two sons that are 2 years apart. I needed something that I could navigate effectively with in many public places. I made the right choice in getting this sit n stand stroller. My oldest didn't quite get the concept of a traditional sit n stand at age 2, so the removable full seatback with seat belt was what sold me on this stroller. I could strap the infant bucket either up front or in back and go about my errands. I liked to strap baby in front and big brother in back though. Recently, I have converted the stroller to a traditional sit n stand with big bro sitting on the bench or standing and baby brother riding in the front seat. The only thing I didn't like was the footrests. They seem a little flimsy to me. This was the most inexpensive option I could find that would work well for both of my kids, and I am so very glad to have this sit n stand!

These prenatals were very good, and easy to take. They did not contain any iron in them, so you don't get the constipation side effect you get with other prenatals. I had morning sickness and vomited every single day and taking something with iron, either at night or during the day seemed to make the nausea linger and be more severe. I took these gummies on occasion to get the nutrients I needed without the iron, but I used them as an occasional supplement to the ones containing iron.

In the few days following my youngest sons delivery, I sent my mother out to purchase a few supplies I had not purchased yet. I sent her to pick up some milk storage bags, and instead she came home with the steam bags. I probably would not have purchased them on my own, but since she got them, I read the directions and gave them a try. They are truly heaven-sent! They saved me so much time and hassle. I steamed all of my breast pump parts and storage containers in less than 3 minutes in the microwave. and to think, I would have STILL been waiting on my boiled water to heat up.... When time (and sleep) is precious, the best thing a mom with a newborn can get is something time-saving and easy.
