LANA nursing pads are THE BOMB. Love them. I am a bigtime leaker and these contain the overflow wonderfully. Plus they are so soft and warm and I don't have to deal with that sour milk smell that pervades disposable nursing pads.

This baby keepsake album! My MIL got it for my 10 year old to help chronicle Jake's babyhood. It's perfect! And my 10 yo DD feels SO important to be in charge of this important documentation.

omg - yeah! that, too!! not only does he sleep great in it, but it really settles him down at bedtime when he seems to be completely overstimulated to the point that he won't even nurse down to sleep.

I like the medela sterilizing bags for the microwave....they have made cleaning the old breastpump so easy.

I was skeptical about it's usefulness at first but now I really like our Nursing Nest (a hollowed out little bolster/wedge that puts the baby in a nice side lying position for you.) It def. makes side-lying nursing easier if you are navigating a tender c-section belly.

I swaddle Clarity up (with the Kiddapotomus swaddler, natch) and plunk her in her Nest and we sleep pretty darn well all night! Daytime fussiness is another story but at least (knock wood!) we have our nights!

I received a Boppy pillow as a gift and didn't get it at all, at first. Turns out, Liam just wasn't big enough (and I'm not big enough ) for it. Now that he's bigger and it fills the gap between my lap and boobs, I really like it. And Dh likes to set him up in it and take his picture.

I also like (read: LOVE) my nephews who mow my lawn for a modest fee when Dh is out of town.

I like Snappis, big thick thirsty prefolds & wool covers! I had no idea I'd be a wool convert so fast but I love it. The feel of baby in soft cushy wool, sooo cozy.

Oh yeah, and if you put all three of those things together you do end up with a big butt. We prefer the term bubblebutt though.

ditto the swaddle me blanket--it rocks my socks!!! asher is sleeping great at night(wakes much less than his 2.5 year old big brother)*sigh*

although since he's huge, i've sized up to the large(15-22 lbs) and he's a bit small for that size, and he's wiggling his way out of it. so i'm planning on buying a miracle blanket--i've heard they work miracles.

Ooh, yes, Casey--get the miracle blanket. It is unbelievable! We have both the Kiddopotamus (Owen weasles right out--he's really narrow and skinny, but long) and the Miracle blanket--the Miracle blanket is awesome!

I have two things for my list--my miracle blanket, and my Kangaroo Korner fleece pouch. The pouch is my lifesaver since I can't set the baby down anywhere that my 2-yr-old can reach...
