I couldn't sleep without my baby monitor that detects my baby's breathing.
Lifesavers for us were the bouncy seat & the jumperoo, waste for us was the baby swing, Bumbo & tummy time mat
We got everything in the world and most of it we never used.
Things I loved, this is about all we used and all I would buy for another baby
The thing to suck out the babies mouth
Footie jammies with zippers!
Changing table(we made one with a dresser)
Large Diaper bag(that had room for extra clothing for me)
Cloth diapers to use for spit up
The Baby Book by Dr Sears
Arm and Hammer diaper pail
Oh and I loved that big sponge thing that the baby laid on for his first few weeks or month of baths
babie wash cloths
b**b pads for the milk that shoots all over
And I think that was it!
We did not really use "our" Boppy, crib, pacifiers, pacifier holders, all those stupid cute outfits that took forever to put on him, Zen swing, pack N play, tummy time thing, moby wrap(that could have been cool if my baby did not freak out in the amount of time it took to get it on)
His bouncy seat is a lifesaver! I Love my BIG diaper bag..wouldn't have made it through this past week without his booger sucker.I have the monitor that detects his breathing but he sleeps with me, so it doesn't get used. I have his pack n play set up by my bed, the diaper/wipes holder on it comes in very handy..hmm i use his diaper genie BUT its not a necessity. his crib, changing table, and rocking chair...look nice in his room:)
