    I love my change table. We had people tell us not to buy one because we can change on a bed or the floor. The change table is much better for my back.

    I can't think of a worst

    Worst - bassinet. It's so personal but my bub was in her cot at 6 weeks. Mainly because she was rolling over and sucking on the material edges in a desperate attempt to find b00bies. It was quite scary at the time! Even though she looked tiny in the cot, it didn't matter to her! Bumbo is up there but bub is only 5.5 months.

    best- a good mat for play, an el cheapo rattle with thin handles, she grabbed it early, really because it was good ergonomics! My connecta carrier.

    Best- ring sling! So easy for quick trips and good to bf in on the go) A good playmat with a dangly toy arch and a bath cradle

    Worst- bumbo (barely used and she looked uncomfy in it), bouncer (she hated it, oddly enough)

    Yes!!!!! Same here! Hated the plastic cot in hospital - mainly slept on me! - and hated bassinet. Started her off in the cot sideways with a pillow/breast feeding pillow surrounding her so she wasn't completely alone on the 'vast expanse' of the cot.

    -Singlet suits! The ones that button at the crutch. Singlets are awful they ride up and look so uncomfy.
    -Feeding pillow
    - breast pump
    - ergo
    - bouncer
    -play gym
    / love to dream swaddles (dd loves having her arms up but still needs swaddling)
    - cradle (lasts longer than a bassinet)

    Best- bassinet, draws etc. medela swing pump (even though I only bf for few weeks still great and I'm pregnant very soon after so will use again!) swaddleme swaddles, her ONE cotton blanket. I only purchased the one I loved and not 10 cheap ones from target it's such good quality. Microwave steriliser, ikea draw dividers LOL!

    Worst- both prams (I will be on my third soon) I didn't skimp either. Buying cot straight away as I'm so indecisive I want a different one again😳 sleeping bags, dummy's, lots clothes (she hasn't worn half of them). Bottle warmer.. Like seriously? Lol

    I'm always saying 'I wish I listened to other mums now' as I didn't need half the crap I got!
