So this week the topic is baby gear... what worked for you/your baby and what didn't. These are some of the things that DID work for us and the brands/locations where I purchased them.
Addaline LOVED this smooth motions glider and spent LOTS of time in it over the first month to 2 months. Got this for a baby shower gift, thanks again girls!
The swing was a close 2nd favorite and was used quite frequently until she was about 6 months old or so. Definitely a must have for any new mom (or even a veteran momma)!! This is the swing we got from Babies'R'Us on sale, very affordable.
She also loved the bouncy seat because I would put her in the bathroom with me while I was getting ready and she could see me at all times, I would also use this while I would take a bath/shower sometimes too. Another must have! This was the one we had, just different print. Very affordable at Target.
I am a researching NERD when it comes to baby safety/child safety and I HAD to have the safest car seat/stroller set on the market so we went with the Chicco brand travel set, in the Discovery print. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED IT!!!
This Chicco Hippo portable high chair was BY FAR a wonderful investment for our family. We love to go out to dinner and I could not stand the thought of putting my baby in a filthy dirty high chair when she was little so we used this all the time, we STILL use it and Addaline weighs somewhere around 27 lbs or so, it is good for kiddos up to 36 pounds. We've used this thing for almost 2 years and still love it, get one if you're having a baby or have a baby already!!
Another thing I absolutely ADORE is our convertible car seat, again I researched to the high heavens on this one and wanted the safest one out there for my baby so I went with the Britax Marathon car seat and haven't regretted my decision one time! LOVE IT! We have one in each car and they are SO simple to install/use!! Purchased from Target.
