BTDT Moms: Best purchase you made? Worst purchase? - Page 3

post #41 of 43
I mentioned in my earlier post that I liked my co sleeper to a point, but forgot to mention that at some time, DH convinced me it was a better idea to take one side off of the crib and tether it to the bed. This was at the same height as the bed was. DD and DS still sleep in the crib attached to the bed. (DD has a toddler bed in our room, but prefers to sleep next to her brother) It is also much easier to nurse with.

Best:
*Baby Bjorn (since I could never work my ring sling) Awesome for grocery shopping, mopping and vacuuming with me. Lots of walks, too
*Peg Perego Pliko P3 stroller My son is now 2, and we've easily put 600-700 miles of walking on that thing. Still in great shape, great canopy, comfy for him.
*Bouncy seat. Really just a soft place to put him, semi-reclined, in the 0-9 month time. Crucial for eating dinner with DH!
*California Baby Super Sensitive lotion and shampoo/bodywash. Yes, it is expensive. But we had scary eczema, caused by Burt's bees products, and this was the only stuff that was ok for his skin.
*Lanolin or Un-Petroleum Jelly for any time his bottom started looking red
*Cloth diapers, especially while exclusively BFing. So easy, and so much cheaper than disposables (prefold and covers for us)
*Bassinette. DH was petrified of rolling over, so the munchkin was in a regular bassinette right next to my side of the bed for the first few months.
*PAck N Play-DS slept in this, in our room, once he got a bit older and we realized he was waking when he heard us shift or roll over. Also wonderful for the 6-9 month stage for using in the kitchen so he wasn't on the tile while I cooked. And great for carting outside on some days.

Worst:
*Piles of other baby lotions and potions
*Never needed or wanted an exersaucer, bouncer, whatever
*Swing-hated it and took up so much space

That BOON frog pod was the WORST!!! The company told me I was installing it improperly/my tub wasn't clean enough. Seriously, i tried so many times to love it (it is great in theory) I just couldn't get the darn thing to stay on the wall!
