    I used the avent manual pump and loved it, will use it again third time round! Small and easy to clean and fit in handbag. Never had an issue with avent bottles either (I only have the normal bottles tho, not anti colic ones).

    I also don't see the point in baby baths, never used one at all for DS, and DD only used it a handful of times cause she was my first and I thought you needed one. So much hassle to fill it up etc, just use the kitchen sink then big bath!

    Baby powder is my addition to the list, particularly for baby girls. The head oncologist at a leading hospital in Sydney advised in a lecture that baby powder should not be used on anyone from baby's to your grandma - the particles from powder have been found to contribute to both bladder and ovarian cancer. I have not actually looked up any actual research for myself, so I can not comment on the scientific validity of his claims, but I'm happy to take his word for it and avoid baby powder!

    Oh and my fancy Kate Hill nappy bag got switched to a $15 kiddie backpack from Kmart after about 2 months. All the little compartments are nice, but the whole bag was too bulky & impractical for me.

    I never used baby powder bc I read it caused issues with their skin, I never even knew about the cancer thing. Can't throw the damn bottle out that I was gifted though... it is a good deterrent to keep ants away from the cat food. That, and a water 'moat'. (We had a very bad ant situation last summer).

    Agree on the Britax. We got given two second hand from a family member. Hated them both. Swapped them for brand new infa secures, DH wanted to keep them as spares I said absolutely no way.

    I'm so confused because I have 6 Avent bottles with the anti colic rings and they've all been fine, no leaks ever!

    I also bought some of the naturals ones but I hated them. The tops/teats/lids take up too much space in my microwave Steriliser, they lids are impossible to flick off with one hand and the teats sink in when DS drinks from them.

    Yes that's what he said, that talc had been found in the ovarian cancer tumour of women who use it. I just made the disclaimer that I haven't actually looked up the research for myself, just more of a heads up for those who feel inclined to look it up these things for themselves (I'm happy not to use it regardless, and never really used it on bubs anyway!)
