    My daughter has had severe reactions on her face from using sunscreen & wipes with the ingredients. Once we worked out what was causing it & stopped, her skin cleared up over a week or so.

    I guess I go against the grain as a user of J&J. I love the milk bath one and the purple one as well. Neither of my kids had the slightest irritation from any of the products nor nappy rash. Granted some kids have sensitive skin but mine didn't.

    Ugh huggies nappies! I was given a box in the newborn size and only used one packet. They leaked for most wees and they grew too small for my bub quick as they were too narrow. I used newborn sized nappies in a different brand for a couple weeks after he outgrew huggies

    ETA ended up donating them to charity as none of my girlfriends wanted the huggies

    It is personal choice. I'm a huge huggies fan. Used with all 4 kids. Never had so much as a leak. Tried so many other types and hated them all.

    This is why we can't use the Huggies baby wipes, within a couple of days ds ended up with a very sore bum so we are careful with what we buy now.

    I know some people really like them, but I personally really disliked Huggies wipes.

    They are great for cleaning though

    We love our change table too!
    Saves my back and gives DS another perspective on the world. He loves being on it and has tummy time on it happily.
    The baby bath is all I've known so I like it.
    For us, the misses were:
    Definitely '0000' clothes for us. He was in them for 2 weeks. I could have gotten away with just a couple of onesies. I bought a couple but was given a dozen most never been worn.
    J&J products of any kind.
    bassinet sheet sets - we don't use 2/3 of what comes in the set.
    Didn't have too many misses as we got stacks of advice before bub arrived.

    Another anti J&J here - I used it and was given it to take home from the hospital with DD (so thought it must be okay!) but it really irritated her skin.

    The Baby Bjorn was a waste of money too - we both hated it.

    I like my AVENT manual pump though and used it with all three kids.
