I’m pretty outspoken about how much we LOVE our stroller – but here it is again. No, it’s not a jogging stroller (me? jogging? ha!) – but it is easy to fold/unfold, a smooth ride, great storage provider, sleek/chic-looking and best of all…it can be used as a double stroller. We added adapters to use our Britax B-Ready car seat to it and also, the Britax parent console. Additionally, we bought the bassinet accessory – which we LOVE using while baby is small.
I had three different type of pacifiers on hand for when baby arrived because I knew not all babies like all types of pacis. She hated the one given in the hospital – so I was glad I had some with me. She ended up loving the MAM and those are what we use still to this day (and with baby #2!).
This is our life line. Seriously. We depend on it. Being the types that we are – we knew we wanted an app that we could track baby’s feedings, diapers and other items on it. We really only use it for diapers, feedings, weight/height measurements, baths and sleeping (which we only started doing a few weeks ago when a schedule became more of a thing…). This app allows us both to enter information and sync to one another. Especially in the early days when the “fog” is so thick – having what time she last ate written down was a lifesaver.
A light shone down from Heaven onto this wonderful device and we love it! So easy! We made formula in bulk, so whenever baby needed to eat – we’d throw a pre-poured bottle from the fridge in the warmer, go and change her diaper and then grab the bottle to give her – easy peesy. They have a whole feeding system (freezer bags, bottles, etc.) that we would’ve used if nursing would’ve gone differently.
We use these to sterilize new bottles, pacis, toys, etc. and I do the bottles (almost) weekly to avoid any sort of grossness. Each bag can be used 20 times – so nice to pop them in the microwave and be done!
I didn’t buy these until later because I had never used them in my life. But it all of a sudden dawned on me one day that they might solve my issue – that all of Baby’s clothes came out of the dryer wrinkled because they were so small that they’d just hang out in a big ball together going ’round and ’round. Best revelation ever – now I don’t have to iron nearly as much!🙂 Note – we don’t put fabric softener or anything in them so to keep them “free & clear” for baby.
