Hi all! I'm looking to finish up my registry and hoping to hear some of your suggestions on must haves and things to stay away from. We picked out the majority of our "big ticket items" but are having trouble decided on bottles (I know every baby is different) and skin care- there are so many kinds now I'm not really sure if one brand is "better" than another. Any tips would be awesome !!! Thanks ladies !
Hey...I just wrote my top ten favorite baby products on my blog...www.kasia.labocki.com - check it out! Bottles - my little one loved the Baby Fee bottles, but I primarily nursed so we didn't use them that often. When we did they were great. I also love all California Baby products when it comes to skin care. I use the Calendula Cream for diaper rashes and it works great (plus it's all natural) - good luck!
If I may, I LOVE my product and you might too. They are t-shirts for mom and dad to wear that encourage infant visual stimulation - key to infant brain development, but most importantly infant stimulation programs are all about enhancing the relationship between and infant and parent. This is all research based; I am a true believer in the infant stimulation program.
Also, something I personally give to my friends at their baby showers is the Homemade Baby Food Starter Kit - feel free to have your friend copy the contents and make one up for you or buy one from me all ready to go. Find the kit and the t-shirts at www.babysmartees.com
Finally, for free, check out my blog - it offers infant stimulation activities for every day. You may find them very useful when you first get your baby home! www.babysmartees.blogspot.com
I used the Doctor Browns bottles and they were amazing! I have friends who switched from what they were using to Doctor Browns bottles and it reduces colic and fussiness in babies!
Skin care for babies? I love Aveeno! It makes baby's skin so soft and it's very gentle.
Get lots of onesies and burp cloths. Get a really good diaper bag. That will become your lifeline! http://reflectionsofanavywife.blogspot.com/
