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 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.
