    I have had a baby bjorn (with the extra back support), an ergo, another one similar to the ergo (Manduca??), snug a bug, 2 slings and another one I can't remember the name of.

    Hated them all except the baby bjorn.

    Yeah carriers in particular can be such an individual thing. I know so many friends who loved the Bjorn, but those who hated it tended to love the ergo.

    Bumbo - what a waste of money
    Sweet dreams - my little bed. Baby wouldn't go in it and only wanted to be night next to me
    Hug-a-bub - liked it but hardly used it and my baby went from 10th percentile to 75th really quickly. Prefer the baby bjorn early weeks and then manduca

    Those j&j products are not for us if you look at the ingredients for the baby oil the additives are outrageous so instead we used the best olive oil around.
    Also for nappy rash we found placing rolled oats inside pantyhose under running water in the bath worked amazingly!!
    Aldi nappies are great for toddlers, what do you all suggest for newborn nappies if huggies are out of fashion?

    This! I stocked up on J&J while pregnant and can't use any of it because of Dd's sensitive skin.

    Newborn socks. Dd's feet were way too big to ever fit into these!

    I use Aldi newborn nappies and love them. Much better then huggies.

    I ysed to think hooded towels were crap but now only use them on both Ds3.5 and ds11 months. Ds3.5 loves them cause he doesn't have to hold into it while he goes from bathroom to lounge to get dressed. It's like a cape!

    Baby baths - we used one for 3 weeks with DS1 then went to showers. with ds2 he went straight to showers with us.

    Those all in one suits with the feet. Useless. My babies were always too long and feet to big for their size. I much prefer leggings and top. Plus leggings/ pants make it easier for nappy changes. Plus I cant see how cloth bums fit in them either.

    If you make average sized kids then I am sure they are fine.

    Same!


    Also the baby swing we got for our first baby.
    She hated it and looked absolutely terrified. I know some babies love them (and that's why we got one) but I wish we'd borrowed one first, or bought a second-hand one.
