    Default What gadgets/gear could you not live without??

    Hi all,
    Just found out we have #3 on the way, so I'm doing the usual of hunting for gadgets/gear that'll make life easier

    So I was wondering what gadgets/gear do you love and recommend to your fellow mums and mums-to-be??

    Mine are ATM:
    •Foldable potty with liners, as DD is potty training and we're out and about a bit.
    •Clip that holds handbag and nappybag.
    •pod that holds the bath toys

    Used to be travel system pram (which will be dusted off and used for #3)

    Bit boring, hence being on the hunt again

    I had a surprise 3rd bub. Things I use heaps are
    Ergo carrier.
    Also depending how old your others are but I've find things that I can but him in so kids don't smother him.
    Like bumbo seat. I use it multiple times a day everyday. I but him up on the table with me when I'm eating or bench when I'm cooking. Started using it from 3rd.
    Baby swings..various types.
    One of those round blowup rings things as he's learning to sit. He's just not as vulnerable when he's in something IYKWIM?
    A light easy stroller/ pram so much easier for school drop off so then lugging a full on pram.
    A helpful DH....mine had 3 m mat leave and did everything basically until going back to work so I could sleep and bond with DSS.

    Thanks for the reply ck2b,
    Dd will be 34m and ds will be 21m :0. So it's definitely going to be interesting

    I completely forgot about our bumbo. Ds sits in it every lunch and dinner time out on the deck at the outdoor setting. Soooo much cooler outside than in

    Yeah. I was so lucky DH had so much time off. In all honesty I think he was more worried about my mental health! It took me a good whilst to get over labor. I had a PPH and was pretty flat for a good while afterwards. With yours so young I found with my first 2 ( 20m apart). I'd put the baby in the swing and put a play pen around it so the 20m old couldn't get in to the baby.

    Swing was a lifesaver as a newborn.
