Whats your baby "must have" item?

For me it was gripe water. DD was colicy the first few months and gripe water helped a ton!!! I love that stuff.
DD never liked the swing or bouncer but the jumperoo she loved. She was a had to be moving baby from day 1, not joking!

It's always been a bouncer for us! All 3 of my kiddos have loved them.

Swing for us- LOVE the swing. I'm not the kind to just dump baby in there all day but for those moments where I need to vacuum or take a quick shower- swings are awesome!

Be back later to see the u/s results of the day- who has an appt- is it Lucienda??

Hmmm my must have is a bouncer. I put baby in the bouncer when I need to get stuff done like cooking or showering. My second would be a carrier of some sort.

Re: Daily chat Aug 24

of those sorts of things I will say swing. They all liked it somewhat but DD1 only slept in the swing until she was 13 months She was super colicky so I just went with whatever worked. We need to get a new one though b/c ours died when L was just finishing up with it.

Today was my DS's first day of kindergarten. He did great but I am a little weepy about the whole thing. G said "I miss Ian" right after the bus pulled away, sad and cute ...

I am a little bummed. I was trying to buy the rest of our nb fitteds and I don't have the patience to buy 1 or 2 of this and that. So I found a lot of 12 KS0 but they sold before I got to them. then I found a lot of mutts and LL fitteds and they sold too. I am just not quick enough

Hmm I think I'll have to go with bouncer too. Pretty lightweight so you can move it from room to room for when you need to sit them down for a minute...but I do mean minute cause my little boogers refuse to be put down for more than a minute!

I have my first midwife appointment today at 3! Excited but nervous cause she is coming here and I haven't met her or even talked to her yet! I just talked to her assistant. Hopefully all goes well. Off to go take a shower and then work on cleaning a bit.

Must have is a swing or bounced. I'm a big holder, but with three kids I have a feeling there are going to be times when I have to put baby down. Lol.

Our must have is the fisher price swing with the lights. Dd loved it. When she would fall asleep dh would carry the whole swing up the stairs and we'd put it in our room. Bec when we'd take her out shed wake up. A little pricey at $115 but I already ordered ds lol. And a bouncer chair so I have use of my hands to shower lol

Today is my first day back to work after the water fiasco. I close so I'm so excited to work!
