okay all you moms and dads…. it’s time for dave and i to start thinking about what baby gear should fill our home. and our garage. and our car. and you get the idea! what items are MUST HAVES (or were for you and your baby, at least?). what items are AWESOME but not necessary. what items are NOT WORTH IT?
please share brands, makes, models, etc. of what you do and don’t like. everything from strollers to baby carriers to backpacks for hiking to toys and rattles and pacifiers and bottles and blankets and clothing and cleaners and…. yeah … you get the idea. dave and i LOVE a bargain, but we’re willing to spend the extra money if it’s really worth it…. though with so many things these days, the most expensive doesn’t necessarily make something "better" – just more expensive.
this is your turn to TEACH ME (us) about what worked for you and your baby. or how you learned what did NOT work for you and your baby.
also, i know that blankets are HUGE gifts at showers (i’m already thinking i’ll get about 10 of them, not including the ones my mom already made for the baby or the ones dave’s mom gave us – that used to be his!) so i know not to buy those. but what else did you end up getting a TON of as gifts? (kinda like all that crystal you got for your wedding and NEVER use – we took most of ours back since we didn’t even register for any)!
you can post your responses here or if you’d rather send ‘em in an e-mail, that’d be okay too.
THANKS (in advance) for ALL of your help!
