This is an amazing swing. Hudson probably spends 4-5 hours a day in this. It swings in three different directions and has a mobile and mirror built in. It has about 10 different speed settings and five different music or sounds. It's amazing. He falls asleep in this like you wouldn't believe.
2. Uppa Baby Vista 2010 Stroller
Okay...the price is enough to make me croak but Brian and I have said we would buy this over and over again.
This is the smoothest stroller to use and it's so comfy for Hudson. He gets really sheltered and cozy in it with his blankets. The height of the stroller is amazing if you're tall and the baby's also facing you which is great for those early months (the big boy insert can face in or out - great options)! The big plus for us is that it converts into a double stroller if you buy the rumbleseat that goes with it!
3. Avent Bottles
I can't speak enough about these. They're BPA free and Hudson just loves them. We also just bought some Nuby bottles which he is getting to love as well. They're comfy for him to start to hold and they are a fantastic bottle. The nipple isn't too overwhelming for them either.
4. Bumgenius One Sized Cloth Diapers
We cloth diaper at least part time. Not only is it good for the environment...the difference in your wallet are well worth it. Over and over again. We cloth diaper except when we know that Hudson's going out or likely to have a huge explosion (saves me some laundry)!
The O/S will grow with him until he's out of diapers. So it's not like we keep buying diapers at every size. A great idea all around!
I picked BGs because they get rave reviews and they're darn cute!
5. Aden and Anais Swaddling Blankets
Hudson doesn't adore being swaddled but sometimes a baby just needs to be. These are light enough that he can barely feel the blanket on him and I can put it over our stroller in the summer months. They're light and really soft. Worth the money as well.
6. Skip Hop Studio Diaper Bag
I am amazed at how much this holds. Often I can get two outfits about eight bottles, bibs, diapers and wipes in there without a problem. Not to mention my wallet, phone, keys and camera. It's roomy and stylish. I love it so much!
I'll post faves more as Hudson grows!
