    DS is only 3 weeks so we're early days...

    Best (so far) - Bubnut baby donut cushion, he hangs out in it all the time
    Worst - 0000 clothes...DS was on the 95th centime for length so the legs were too short in all of them!

    Ooh I thought of another, worst! MUSLIN WRAPS!!

    WTF are u supposed to do with these? I had so many and they were absolutely useless! What's the point of them? They don't stretch so you can't wrap your baby in them?

    We also got given HEAPS of blankets which were useless.

    BEST
    Change table- we used it for ages and it saved my back
    Electric swing- so handy for when I wanted a shower/hang washing out/do housework or if dd was fussing but didn't want to be held
    Playmat with toys above- same reasons as the swing
    Bassinet attachment for the pram- dd was in it for 5+ months and it was super handy for naps when we were out as she couldn't see her surroundings, so she wouldn't be over stimulated
    Pram with adequate basket space- handy for shopping days

    WORST
    Capsule- we still had to buy a convertible carseat, so a double expense and dd grew out of it faster than expected but was still able to RF in a convertible
    Baby bath- it was easier to bath her in the sink or the proper bath and was a hassle to fill and empty. She also didn't fit in it comfortably for long

    Best- big wraps. If a wrap is under 120cm by 120cm it's too small. Love our bamboo and cotton wraps.

    I loved my wraps - great for everything from wrapping, to catching a little spew on the hop, hanging over pram or car seat for shade, my babies used them later on for Sleeps at kindy too.

    Totally agree! I have found a lady who makes them on eBay at 140x140. I'm stocking up big for this baby!

    I have noticed similar threads pop up occasionally and it always seems what is he best is the worst for another. So maybe buy essentials only then expect to get things as you decide you need them?

    Our best, a bassinet - DS was only in it for 3 1/2 months but it was so convenient. A cheap swing - again only used for a little while so good it was cheap but was still very handy. A blanket for floor time - at 6 months it is still the most frequent used item. Old nappies as spew rags/mats for nappy free time. Big bamboo wraps - great to swaddle and also I'm the pram/car seat. Then love to dream swaddles when a little bigger.
