Ergococoon

Avent bottle warmer to warm food (don't like the microwave and try and avoid pots and pans as much as possible!)

good but very ugly breastfeeding chair (I don't think I would've stuck with it if I wasn't so darn comfy!)

#10 Cranky Kitten

1. Baby carrier (I have a few different varieties as it's something of a hobby now, but started with an Ergo)

2. Old fashioned cloth nappies - so good for a chucky babe, plus their myriad of other uses.

3. Video monitor.

1. Vicks humidifier - the only thing that would clear DS nose when he had a cold - would have had a nervous breakdown without it!!

2. My breastfeeding cover from the ABA shop - had wire in the top which kept it off my chest so i could look down and see how DS was attaching - great for super unco people like me

3. Love me baby swaddles with the zipper at the front - i was just so crap at swaddling - as per no 2. im totally unco!!

Oh, definitely the humidifier as well for colds! I think mine is a Euky Bear one. That's 4 for me though, sorry.

#15 Just Another Cat

Video monitor  - best things ever. We still use one for 3yo DD, had to get a second for DS.

Sleeping Bags - excellent for babies that move all around the cot. Any cotton tog rated ones are great.

Borri cot - love the size, quality and one hand drop down side.
