Not sure if this is the right section for this post but wondered what new mums considered their best and worst bub purchases. Im trying to compile a budget for our bubba and wonder what is actually "essential" and what you could do without.

I think our worst purchase would be the bumbo we didn't really use it much, but I know others love them

My daughter is 5 months old and so far my favorite things are a Fisher Price swing and "big softies" bath cradle (pictured below). She can stay in the bath for ages and I don't have to hold her the whole time to make sure her head doesn't go under coz the cradle holds it above the water. I just sit beside the bath and let her splash and go crazy.

My Ergo. It was about the only thing I could count on for the entire first year.
My slings were great but not 'shareable'. The Ergo suited everyone from me to my Dad.
Tha Bumbo was also pretty cool. Much better than a high chair and lasted longer.

My worst was the cheap Ikea high chair. My DS couldn't even fit his thighs in it at 6 months! Same with the bumbo, although that was a hand-me-down, so not so painful. Everything else has ranged from fine to great...

Best purchase - a swing to rock baby to sleep when you just need to get dinner started. So relaxing and calming for them.
Worst purchase - tommee tippee manual breast pump. It was so bad at getting milk out of me. I had more luck expressing with my hand and would get a steady ****** of milk if I gently pulled on my breast and used my thump (similar to milking a cow!)

I had a bumbo but hardly used it and then read somewhere that they aren't good to use for bubs as they can hurt their backs and necks as they aren't supposed to be sitting at that age
Something like that.
Best purchase was my glider chair
