Medela BPA Free 3 Pk Breast Milk Bottles - 5 oz.

Medela BPA Free 3 Pk Breast Milk Bottles - 5 oz.

I like these bottles, but not the nipples that go with them. The nipples collapse when the baby tries to drink out of them. We also had some of the rings that go around the nipples crack. What I like about them is that you can pump directly into them with your medela pump. I use the bottles and the caps to store my freshly pumped milk into. I also like that you can use other nipples and caps on these bottles that aren't made by medela. I would recommend these if you plan on using them to pump with and not necessarily to bottle feed out of.

I love this swim diaper. I love that this diaper is reusable and washable. We like to go to the pool almost everyday so this was a major money saver! We only had one accident in this diaper and it kept the poop contained and didn't leak into the pool. It also held up with repeated washings. Great value if you plan on swimming a lot.

I love this diaper pail. We have owned it for over 9 months and I haven't had the dirty diaper smell at all. This keep the smells contained pretty good. I also like that the bags are individual so you just pull and new one out and put it in(no tearing or cutting of the bags). I also like that you can seal the bag shut before removing it out of the container so you don't have to smell week old dirty diapers. Our child is in size 3 diapers and we have to change it less then once a week. The refill bag run about 50 cents a piece-but I will gladly pay that to not have to smell dirty diapers. I would reccommend this product!

We own a few pack and plays and this particular model is cheep. The mattress itself is made of cheep thin boards. My 7 lb infant was heavy enough to bend the boards on the mattress so that they were permanetly warped. We ended up having to cut a piece of plywood the size of the pack and play just to support the mattress so that it wasn't completely bent. The mattress is also made up of 4 boards and they were constantly sliding under one another. I contacted graco and the sent a replacement mattress-but the second mattress did the same thing. This is the cheepest model graco offers and it is made cheep. That being said-we have the more expensive model graco pack and play and the difference in quality is night and day. Our old one is sturdy the boards in the mattress are 3x thicker then this one haven't bent. I guess you get what you pay for.

These happen to be both of my kids favorite binkys. Neither child will take any other binky besides this brand. These are well made and as long as my child doesn't chew on them with their teeth-they hold up really well. I also like that I am able to put them in the top of the dishwasher or use the steam bags to clean them! I also like that these are BPA free.

I love these spoons. What I love most about them is that they have a deep spoon part that actually holds a lot of food, and the food actually stays on the spoons. They also have a nice long handle to get to the bottom of the stage 3 jars. I love that they are dishwasher safe also.

I hated these diapes, they were my least favorite out of our entire cloth diaper stash. If you use these with the cloth inserts-the cloth cover and my child's clothes ended up covered in urine. We also found that the plastic inserts didn't hold up well in the washer-the plastic layers on the inserts started to peal apart after only a few washes. The velcrow also was cheep-it was constantly coming undone while my child was wearing them. I would save yourself the hassel and buy something different as everytime my child wet himself we had to do a full clothing change. The only good thing about these was that I was able to sell them for more then I paid.

What I like about this carseat is that it has the infant side impact head protection in case of a crash that is adjustable as the child grows, I also like that this carseat has a 30lbs/30 inch limit. This also fits with out peg perego pilko stroller and would also fit with the other strollers that peg perego makes to make a travel system. I feel that my child is safe in this carseat!

I love my boppy pillow! It worked well to position the baby up for breatfeeding, as well as for helping the baby to sit up. My baby is 9 months old and we still use this to help keep him upright. My husband also used this to position the baby when he would bottle feed him. I also like that this pillow is completely washable-several times when the pillow itself got dirty I would throw the pillow and the cover in the wash and it came out like new each time! Would recommend this pillow even to people that don't plan on using it to breastfeed.

These bottle when assembled correctly and filled below the max fill line leak all over when our baby tries to drink out of them. They worked well to help our daughter with her acid reflex/spit up problems, but having to keep a washcloth around the top of the bottle to control the leaks from the bottle was a hassel. These bottles also have a lot of parts which can be a pain to keep track of and wash. These bottles would have been great if they didn't leak.
