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!)
Posted 29 November 2012 - 06:50 PM
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!!

1. Fisher-Price Papasan swing.
2. Honeysuckle Sleep merino adult and baby sleeping bags (I'm a co-sleeper).
3. Braun stick blender (makes pureeing so easy).

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

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.

1. Aden + Anais wraps - so soft and a good size, use them for swaddling, covering up when breastfeeding, pram cover etc.
2. Pram travel system with the capsule and adaptors so don't have to wake bubs up - also good for her to sit/sleep in when she had reflux.
3. For myself, bonds maternity singlets - pretty much live in them
Posted 29 November 2012 - 07:20 PM
