Everyone of my friends swears by their swing. The swear it is a life saver and their babies loved just sitting in my rocking back and forth watching what was going on. I knew that I would definitely be adding one to my registry and the Fisher Price Cradle n Swing is the one that everyone suggested. I opted for the My Little Lamb edition because of the simple light colors so it will hopefully blend it better with my family room furniture.
My SIL swears by the bouncer for her kids when they are newborns. She even said that both of them slept it in at one point or another at night because it was the only thing that would work. I obviously don't know if this will work for the little guy but I'm up for trying any soothing techniques in the beginning. I went with the My Little Lamb edition to match the swing that I registered for and because again the FP brand comes highly recommended.
This is another product that comes highly recommended to me. I have heard mixed reviews from people about the Bumbo seat but I believe that if used properly (ie once baby can hold up their head) then it can be the perfect little seat. My SIL used to sit my 5 month old niece by us at the pool so she could see all the action without being in or near the water.
This is one of those products that totally slipped my mine when I was first working on my registry. It was after having lunch with one of my pregnant friends that I realized oh my gosh I'm going to need somewhere to put dirty diapers! Let's be honest no one wants those in a regular trash can. My friend had tried numerous diaper trash cans with her 9 month old and said that this was hands down the best one, so it immediately when on my registry.
Did any of you use these with your babies? Good, bad, any advice? Any other pregnant girls register for these items?
I love hearing all your recommendations!
