    Baby baths with the seat in it. I was given one from someone who also didn't want it! We used it a couple of times and then went and bought a normal one. So annoying with a newborn and this big bulky hard plastic inbuilt seat! Bath thermometer - was also a gift, have never used it.

    But I have an Avent manual pump and love it!

    I love J&J stuff, smells like new baby to me. I have all the soap-free eco-friendly stuff which I use but it doesn't smell like anything and I love him smelling nice after his bath. DS doesn't have sensitive skin though.

    Ive used Avent bottles & think they are great.

    If they suck in, you are probably using them incorrectly. The trick with avent bottles (both with & without the ring) is to not screw the lid up too tightly. When done properly they make a little gurgling noise. If the nipple sucks inwards then it's not getting the air release. Bubs might also be sucking hard & you might need to go up a size to a faster flow.

    Ditto!!! I'm against the grain on quite a few including my medela swing which has been opened and inspected and never had an issue, plus milk pumped with it passed the strict bacteria test for donating!

    Anyway back to topic...

    Padded baby bath recliner insert thing, didn't make holding bub any easier and took forever to dry because of the fabric over it and was constantly soggy, yuk! Was used about three times before being ditched.

    Seconding the gro egg as useless.

    Smaller size swaddling wraps, were used only as burp cloths and the like, good wrapping requires a large wrap IMO!!

    I loved the gro egg! My toddler use it as a night light now

    Also love the hooded bath towels.

    ETA loved the Fisher Price little lamb. Saved my sanity
    Bought it second hand and sold it along for the same price a few months later.

    Default Baby products that you would NOT recommend

    Not purchases, but we were gifted several dummy products. Ie thermometer in a dummy, medicine dispenser in a dummy. The child won't take a dummy full stop, let alone if he was crying and I wanted to take his temp or give him medicine.

    I think it's actually the shape of the nipple head - it collapses down onto/ into itself, it doesn't just flatten as it would if bub was sucking too hard. It doesn't happen with the avent nature ones or with others. If they work for you, great!

    Avent electric steriliser. It didn't hold enough water (less than the instructions said to put in) and the base got burned. Took it back and exchanged for the microwave version for half the price. Less mess and faffing around. Plus can be stored in the microwave when not in use instead of having something sit on the bench top.
