Calling All Moms...

Okay all you mommas out there, I need your help! Brian and I are finishing up with all of the things we'll need for Avery's arrival. I've been scouring Craigslist for the last week, but I'm not totally sure what I should even be looking for. One of the things that we DON'T have yet is a baby swing. We have a little rocker swing that sits on the floor, but we don't have a big swing that she can lay in and swing front/back or side/side and listen to soothing music. We've been told that this is a MUST bc it's great sleep-time for baby :)

Are there any other items that you ABSOLUTELY would not have been able to live without? I'm talking 100% essentials here, not just GREAT products that were pretty helpful, but... you know when I mean. If you could only have one or two things...what would they be?

Alrighty- enlighten me!

Hey Roxanne! You're getting so close- how exciting!!! Well EVERY baby is different, so I don't know what to tell you. Jackson never liked his swing, but he loved the bumbo starting around 3 months. He always wanted to be held, so I "wore" him a lot in the baby bjorn and sling. I think as long as you have one toy to set her in when you need a free hand, you will be fine. Hope the rest of your pregnancy goes well, and I can't wait to see your sweet baby girl! :-)

Hey girl...I'm glad things are going well with your pregnancy...just thought I would share this advice I was given since you mentioned the swing...2 of my friends that have babies swear by this swing... one of them had a really collic-y baby and said they went to the store and put her in all of the swings and tried them out and this is the only one she liked. It looks super comfy and has several positions...good luck and hope all goes well with the delivery!!! Blessings!!
