Baby Stuff

Ok, I'm starting to register and I admit, I'm clueless! I think I have the basics but please all of you moms out there help! Let me know what I need and don't need, what works and what doesn't, what is your favorite and what you can't live without. Just leave it in my comments and I'll make a list or a poll out of the items for other new moms. Thank you!

Thanks for visiting me! Congrats on being pregnant. I was clueless at the time too...and still am :) My little boy is 9 months and I'm learning new stuff all the time. I hope my list helped some. Let me know if you have any questions. I love talking baby-stuff!

One thing I have found to come in handy is a sling! I'm the type of person that can't really sit still and the sling has been a blessing in disguise. I take Jackie on walks, I do laundry, take her to the store! Jolyn

Michelle,
I was sitting around at 4am this morning, while Jackie thought it would be really fun to wake up and play, about all the things I couldn't live without during the day. Here are some additional items to add to the sling:
-the Boppy
-a pacifier
-the glider rocking chair
-Music Choice stations on TV for late night rocking sessions
-Swaddle Me(she can't sleep without it)
-Long sleeve onesies(If your baby is born in colder weather)
-Medela breastpump(if you are breastfeeding)
-And I agree with your friend...LOTS of patience!!

Baby and Mommy needs:
Boppy Pillow
Sling/carrier
bouncy seat
grooming kit
finger tooth brush (looks like condom with bristles that you place on your finger)
medicine kit
The hospital's nose aspirator has more suction
Dr. Suess & Sandra Boynton books
"The Baby Whisperer"
"The Toddler Whisper"
Robeez shoes love them!

Love, Patience, Mommy time-outs, and chocolate!
Hope this helps.
Love, Jana
P.s. once you and baby get to know each other, you'll figure out what works and what doesn't!

How about a comment from a grandma and mom? I might be old but a few things I remember as being important to me since I am a clean freak! We had a "wrap around" high chair that made it nearly impossible to spill on the floor. Also a hard plastic "tommy tipee" bib. The food slid down in a "trough" for you to dump into the garbage can! Now I reckon that these items may not be readily available since this was in 1978 and 1984. But it would be well worth it if you could find them! Also - I know my daughter-in-law loves those "wrap" things to carry the baby in when out and about. You'll have to ask her what they are called! gal
