    Default Your baby must haves?

    I like things to be basic but for me my life saver was my fisher price baby swing, it allowed me to shower, clean up or do things around the house when my bub was wanting to be held.

    I sold all my baby stuff then a month later I found out I am expecting again, so I'm starting from scratch. Now I'm interested - what were your must haves/lifesavers/things that made baby days easier for you?

    My favourite and most used baby product for both babes was an ergo carrier.

    Allowed me to get out and about a lot easier (I can bf in ergo). It also let me get things done around the house while keeping bubs happy.

    Definitely carriers. The ergo has never been that comfy for me (I think I'm too short) but a stretchy wrap when she was little and now woven wraps.

    Our baby loves her rocker chair, her crib mobile, and her fuzzy blankets. Things that make my life easier are my change table, modern cloth nappies (more for the money it saves than the convenience though ), and bassinet (great for sleep overs and for during the day naps. We have it set up in a darker room than her cot).

    congratulations! I think its kinda nice to start over again... you can de clutter!
    Definitely the baby swing!!! now its the jumperoo apart from those Id say a bumbo seat which we use as a high chair and as a seat when I need her to stay in one spot and it was great when she was just learning to sit so she wouldn't topple!
    Maxi cosi car seat (attaches to the pram so easy in and out)
    breathing monitor ( real peace of mind!)
    honestly I have so much stuff i hardly used!! those are my basics i wouldnt go without apart from the big items like change table cot and basinette
    oh and some kind of sling... I have an ergo a bjorn and a hammock style... I tend to use the bjorn more.

    Must have an ipad. It's cheaper than having a nanny.
