So far these work just like they are supposed to and are a must have in the community pool. My son has not pooped in these yet but they seem to do a good job with not absorbing a ton of pool water. Easy to get on and remove, even when wet.

My 9 month old loves these treats, I usually give him a few after he has eaten his veggies or fruit as a treat. They have never made a mess and he can easily grab them and pop them into his mouth. They dissolve quickly and don't taste too bad! Great alternative snack for my son!

I had tried this a few times at the checkout counter in our local baby stores and bought some on my last visit. THis has a nice feel to it, comes out as a foam. I don't feel that it dries my hands out as badly as other sanitizers. There is no overpowering smell and it dries quickly with no residue left behind. Would recommend to anyone looking for a less-harsh sanitizer. Great for the changing table!

I enjoyed these as swaddling blankets since they were warm yet light. Now that my son has outgrown swaddling I continue to use them as changing pad covers, light blankets, mats to lay him on etc. I always have one in the car and one in the diaper bag since I never know when/how it wil come in handy. Great shower gift and I like these because they were gender neutral.

My husband bought this for me after I started complaining of backaches at night. I tried it for a couple nights and couldn't get it into a comfortable spot. It seemed too hard to rest my belly on and quickly fell out of place as I shifted during the night. I had better luck curling up to a pillow, sometimes putting a pillow between my legs as well to relieve pressure on my hips.

I received this as a hand-me-down from my sister-in-law and it was super comfortable. I was already in maternity jeans when I received it and wore it anyway. I think it helped to support my belly a little bit, taking some of the pressure off my lower back. Would highly recommend and will be sure to pass along to my newly pregnant cousin!

I bought this before the birth of my first child, hoping to get my hips back to their regular size. I tried wearing it the first week after delivery and it was pretty uncomfortable, it pinched if I sat down and I had a terrible muffin top that rubbed on the velcro. After the first couple weeks, wearing it for an hour at time, I gave up on it altogether. I have to admit, waking up to a crying baby, fatigue, mood swings etc, the last thing I wanted to think about was strapping my sweat pants wearing self into a elastic/velcro device. I'll take my hips as is, even if that means a few extra inches. (4 months after delivery, I'm back in my regular jeans with excercise and eating right. My hips seemed to have gone back to their regular mesurement anyways.)

I have a package of these in the diaper bag. My son doesn't use a pacifier but I have these readily available for any toys/teathers that drop on the ground. I don't often have a sink around when we are out and feel these do a pretty good job at cleaning off the toys before giving them back to my son. They've also worked well when I needed to clean his hands quickly. I have a package with a hard plastic cap instead of a peely sticker type closure. As long as I keep them in the side of my diaper bag where they are easy to reach and don't get smooshed they stay moist. Would recommend as a quick clean option and will certainly buy them again.

Moby Wrap Baby Carrier

I absolutely love the comfort of this carrier. I started using it with my first child when he was 2-3 months old. I tried the sling first and was getting terrible backaches/neck strain. I finally decided to spend the extra cash and get the Moby. It was a bit intimidating at first (it's about 20 feet of material that you wrap and tie around yourself) My son loves it as well, he snuggles right down and falls asleep. Now that he is a bit older he still enjoys being wrapped in the Moby, but I let him have a hand free so he has a little more movement. Note: If you are going to the store or plan on wearing it out someplace, I would recommend wrapping yourself first, before getting in the car. This saves it from dragging on the dirty ground. It does shrink a little bit after being washed but soon stretches back out just enough.

I tried a front pack carrier last weekend since it was quite warm outside and removed it after 20 minutes because my neck hurt. I put the Moby on instead and it continues to be comfortable (Son is currently 18 lbs)

I like the concept and multiple uses of this pillow. It worked well for baby tummy time and leaning to sit, also as a nice pillow for mom. It worked well enough for breastfeeding but I needed my son a little higher and felt that I was always adjusting this pillow as it would scootch forward on me. Football hold was difficult without positioning half the pillow behind my back so the thick middle section was under my baby, making it a little uncomfortable for me. Even with our issues it was still better than just using a regular pillow. It would be handy if it somehow connected around the back (a woman in my breastfeeding support group added her own velcro strap to the cover to keep it positioned correctly)
