Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant Car Seat

Maxi-Cosi Mico Infant Car Seat

We've used a Maxi Cosi Mico for our three daughters. I've never felt safer while driving with them in the car than when they were in these car seats. Super amazing quality. The only thing i can complain about is how annoying the buckle is as your child gets older. Instead of other car seat models, you have to place the lower buckle bits together and then click them into the buckle. A small thing that you get used to (it seemed like a big deal for our first but it is no longer an issue with our 3rd since we've figured it out) but it was a bit annoying in the beginning when everything else parent-related is so new and challenging, too!

Maxi-Cosi Piazzo Travel System Stroller

we loved how easily the seat clipped in and out of the car seat base and the stroller. Really a breeze--i was worried about switching from a snap and go (super easy) to a regular stroller but this system took the fear right out of me. Even my husband got it immediately without getting frustrated and that's saying something for him and baby products!

The stroller is great--love the cup holders and tray and the reclining options, too. I do wish it had a bigger basket as i like to walk to the grocery store and use it in the mall for putting packages into, etc.. Like that it "tries" with a cup holder and a phone holder but both bounce out if you hit a crack in the sidewalk. Not good. Wish they were deeper!

Speaking of bounces--the wheels are so small that it doesn't handle well on our bumpy sidewalks. If you're just zipping in and out of the mall or another smooth-surface area, you'll be good to go!

Best thing--the ease of collapsing and opening it. A cinch even with a baby or a carseat in your hands! LOVED that feature enough to recommend it to everyone!

We have three daughters, 3 and under. The oldest is in a toddler bed and the middle is in the crib. Since we didn't want to buy another crib, we opted for a portable crib. We could not be MORE pleased with this one--our daughter loves loves loves it--she has known nothing else since birth and it is her favorite place to let down and relax. I will be SO sad when she can no longer fit into the bassinet feature because this crib is so great. It has a super handy changing pad that folds up and down with one-handed ease. It has a battery-operated device that plays music, vibrates, and lights up so that you can see what you're doing in the middle of the night while also soothing your baby. One thing--it loses batteries pretty quickly if you use it frequently. It also has the perfect amount of storage space for diapers and wipes, etc. We use cloth diapers and it fits everything we need within easy reach. I love this crib so much and am so glad we had this option when our youngest was born! (BTW, the mobile is a nice feature, too!)

We use this scrubber brush for everything! Since my newest daughter refuses to take a bottle, it doesn't get used as much for it's original purpose as it does for things like cleaning out my water bottle and our wine glasses. It is a seriously good purchase and can reach and clean in areas your hand or sponge could never reach. Love it!

The newborn sling on this bathtub makes it worth the purchase alone--so perfect for cradling your baby and making her feel secure. We have used this tub for the past three years for our 3 daughters and have loved it the whole time. We even travel with it to my in-law's house because they don't have a bathtub! My nearly 2-year old was able to fit into it over the summer and her 7-month old sister went in right afterwards--it is great! Even our newest daughter who hates the bath is perfectly content in this tub.

I always recommend this product when new moms-to-be ask me for my top list of must-haves. This is definitely one of those!

Babies "R" Us Contoured Changing Pad

we have used this changing pad for the past 3 years for 3 different girls. Now that i have 2 mobile girls, I love that i can take this pad off the table and take it with me to whatever room we're playing in--that way i can change their baby sister quickly and conveniently wherever we are! the sides are perfectly contoured so that she won't roll off them--they keep her from getting too far tilted.

It is very soft, even after so much use, and it is inexpensive compared to other similar brands. My older 2 even love to lay on it as a play toy when they play house!

The only thing that's a con is that our belt ripped off before our oldest was even 9-months old. We never used it anyway, but she managed to grab and tear it--kind of crazy that a baby could have that much strength to pull it off but it happened. Again, not the end of the world since we usually keep it on the ground and never used it in the first place.

my daughters (3.5 and 2) still love to use these toys during nap and bedtime. It took me a while to figure out how many times i had to push the belly to get it to turn off (they kept pushing it again and again--thankfully, though, there is an "off" switch under the velcro closure). I found that i had to replace the batteries quickly--probably because my daughters use these so much--but they still love their seahorses even when they don't play music!

These wipes are our fave! Here's why:
1) Thick!!! Won't rip and get the job done with less wipes
2) smells great!
3) You can always find them for a great price if you buy in bulk (check around!)
4) no rashes or breakouts despite my daughters' sensitive skin issues

once you try these you won't go bac to any other wipe.

One of my daughters has very sensitive skin and this sunscreen is about the only one that keeps her rash-free for the summer. We live in Hotlanta so we're constantly applying sunscreen and this one is by far the best--while it is thicker than other sunscreen (think sun-CREAM) once it is applied, it definitely keeps them from getting burned. We practically live in it 8 months out of the year!

My daughter received this toy when she turned 1 and didn't care about it--two years later, when she and her sister rediscovered it while moving, it became a huge hit! They love to take it into the bathroom and turn off the lights and discover the star patterns. It is such an awesome educator and entertaining toy for them--of course it is up to you to explain how the stars change position by season, etc, but it's a great tool for older kids. I imagine that they'd love to sleep with it, too, but they get so much enjoyment out of it during the day that i just leave it as a toy and not as a soother. highly recommend to anyone considering it for an older child!
