Baby Lust List

Baby shopping is FUN.

I never thought I’d enjoy shopping even more than I already did, but it finally happened 😀 Ever since we found out little nugget is a he-nugget last week, it’s been such a blasty to meander around baby stores and websites to get ideas for our registry. We’re not going to register until after my 20-week ultrasound (so that we’re 100% sure it’s a boy!), but that’s not to say I don’t have a “favorites” list of links ready to go 😉

Here are some of the things I absolutely adore:

1) Moby wrap in organic cotton


2) Snuza

You clip it to the baby’s diaper and it detects movement and breathing. It will sound an alarm if movement stops, which I think *might* keep me from checking if the baby is breathing every 5 seconds during the night.


3) aden + anais organic muslin swaddling blankets


4) Boppy newborn lounger

(I want one in my size!! That looks so comfy)


5) Glamourmom Nursing tank


I won’t register for these –just pick them up since they’re technically for me- but I’m so happy they actually look like NORMAL tank tops.

6) Mini Convertible Co-sleeper


I really love the idea of co-sleeping, but am horrified that I’ll roll over and crush the baby. This is perfect because we’ll be able to have it right next to the bed, so the baby is close by, without actually being in bed with us.

7) Organic hooded towel


Once again, can I get one in my size? Haha.

8) Emily Baby Bag


I love that it looks like a regular purse, since I’ll be carrying it everywhere with me. The Pilot already got a link for this one 😉

What I’ve picked up already:

-Quite a few baby outfits: a mixture of classic, organic and unique


(I got that today!!! How cute for farmer’s market Sunday?!)

An Ergo baby carrier


This one was on last week –if you’re not on the email list and are expecting, or have a little one, sign up ASAP- and since I’d like to have 2 Ergos (one stylish one to wear with dresses or cute outfits, one for adventures: farmer’s market, Disneyland, Sabino Canyon), so I nabbed up this one for $77 instead of full price through BabySteals. I figured it would be perfect for an adventure Ergo 🙂

A lot of the above is fun stuff that I’ll use all of the time, but I definitely need to do more research on the bare necessities like cloth diapers, bottles –we’ll probably use glass, baby care products and furniture.

    That diaper bag is gorgeous! I love shopping for anything baby-related!

  2. Sarah on July 22, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Look into Charlie Banana diapers… they are my faaaavorite! 🙂 And we love California Baby products also. Especially the diaper creme and the spray diaper wash.

    • Fitnessista on July 22, 2011 at 4:24 pm

      good to know, thank you!

  3. Roselyn on July 22, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    You are going to LOVE…LOVE the ergo. I got mine 5 years ago for my first son, then used it for my 2nd son, and its a God-send! I had heavy boys, so the Bjorn carrier was tough on my back…the Ergo worked wonderfully. You’ll get your money’s worth out of it, since you can use it til the kid is like 100 lbs. Ha! 🙂

    Any idea on what kind of stroller/carseat combo you’d like?

    • Fitnessista on July 22, 2011 at 4:24 pm

      we’re pretty sold on the orbit. it’s the only one the pilot loves too 🙂

      • Roselyn on July 22, 2011 at 4:27 pm

        My BFF got the Orbit for her first (5 years ago) and used it for her second as well. I love how you can switch out the infant carseat on the stroller and use the toddler seat; I imagine that’s great for travel too.

        • Fitnessista on July 22, 2011 at 4:27 pm

          yeah it seems very convenient!

  4. Lauren on July 22, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    We co sleep, I used the sleeper for a few weeks, but stoped when I realized I could actually “sleep” when she is in my bed. So much easier for nursing. She is still in our bed at 8 months and I love it! And we sleep, like a lot! She goes down at 830 and wakes once or twice for a very short feeding then sleeps till 930am! And that’s because I wake her up! Co sleeping is amazing! 🙂 also, if you plan on nursing, the brestfriend is a great thing! I loved mine!

    • Lindsay on July 22, 2011 at 11:07 pm

      I second the brestfriend nursing pillow! Loved mine, so much better than boppy because it stays put.

  5. Caree @ Fit-Mama on July 22, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    I swear technology just keeps on getting better, I would have LOVED to have one of those things that hooks to the diaper to detect breathing/movement. I was always a freak about that. Even though my babies really didn’t sleep in their own crib until 3-6 months. And the mini convertable cosleeper will be one of your best purchases! I don’t know why people even bother buying bassinets, babies just do not sleep in them unless they are on their bellies and thats a no-no. I co slept with my daughter and the hubby was pushed out of bed, we should have just bought one of those!

  6. Michelle @ Crazy*Running*Legs on July 22, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    LOVE the Moby — and although I prefer the Beco over the Ergo — either one is waaaaaaaay better than the Baby Bjorn! I also recommend Bravado Nursing Bras and Tanks. They offer a lot more support than the Glamourmom tanks. Target’s are AWESOME though for the first few weeks postpartum (when your girls are HUGE) so grab some of them too. They have some really cute ones now! A far cry from what they had 5 years ago.

    Are you planning on getting a breast pump? Check to see if your insurance covers it (it can be considered durable medical equipment!!).

  7. Megan @ On The Road Again on July 22, 2011 at 4:30 pm

    Thanks for the Baby Steals tip! I’d never heard of it before, but could always use a good baby deal!

    We haven’t bought any baby items yet since we don’t know the sex yet, but I did hit Old Navy’s online maternity shop for tons of clothes yesterday at 30% off. Finding cute maternity outfits is kind of tough (I still don’t get why J.Crew doesn’t have a line!) but Old Navy seems to be ok. Have you found any cute maternity threads yet?

  8. Jen @familyfoodfitnessandfun on July 22, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    Love the stuff you’ve chosen…especially that little outfit 🙂 The thing I always buy babies, is a grobag, basically a baby sleeping bag. They usually start using it around 2 – 3 months, when they stop being swaddled. I used one for each of my kids. They come in different sizes so that the child can use one as they grow. My kids were in one until they were 2 1/2!

    • Amy on July 22, 2011 at 11:05 pm

      I second the grow bags, I love mine for my 3 month old. Already bought one in the next size!

  9. britt on July 22, 2011 at 4:32 pm

    i have a sleepy wrap, like the moby and LOVED it. my little guy is over 20 lbs so i don’t use it much anymore. we also loved the muslin blankets. they are great to cover the car seat while the baby is sleeping since they are think enough to keep baby cool but keep out light and other disturbances. these were a life saver when i just needed to get out and walk around the mall while my baby slept.

    as far as nursing tanks go, i found some great ones at target that were super cheap but they still look like nursing tanks IMO. a great nursing workout top is the lululemon power y tank. the built-in bra is great to hold nursing pads in place and the strap slides off easy so you can discretely nurse without having to pull your shirt up. it was a great excuse to stock up on some lululemon 😉

    oh, and i’m so jealous of your ergo. i totally want one but feel like i’ve waited too long.

    sorry for the novel. hehe! i guess i love baby gear too 🙂

  10. Ellie@fitforthesoul on July 22, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    I don’t blame you!! these are all so adorable!! I was the same way when my nephew was just born! haha. Hmmm cosleeping is tricky, b/c my nephew sleeps with his parents but…now he’ll get fussy if he’s not with them, and they have a hard time because he’ll constantly hit them or cry if he realizes they’re gone 😛 But every baby is different! Def. something to think about.

  11. Abby @ Abz 'n' Oats on July 22, 2011 at 4:34 pm

    Oh my gosh! All of this stuff looks amazing! 🙂 I love all of the organic cotton picks and the locally produced outfit. He is going to be one cute little pilot!

  12. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table on July 22, 2011 at 4:35 pm

    My BFF had a baby last week Saturday and already swear by the Boppy shapes for nursing. I bought her the body pillow too (Tina @ FFF’s suggestion!) and she loved it while she was preggers!

    P.S. She has the Coach diaper bag and it looks mighty fine in person. 🙂

  13. Holly @ The Runny Egg on July 22, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    I love seeing all of this stuff! I am so excited for you.

  14. Deanna on July 22, 2011 at 4:36 pm

    We have a Moby and an Ergo (also from babysteals a couple months ago) And 2 pouch slings . :-p
    I love them all, the Ergo is great for going out and about. It’s super comfy to wear. I want a woven wrap, also. They’re cool too.

  15. Brittany @ a healthy slice of life on July 22, 2011 at 4:37 pm

    Oh I haven’t seen the diaper clip monitor but I looove it! How much?

    • Fitnessista on July 22, 2011 at 4:45 pm

      i’m not sure! i think my friend said 29 but i could be way off

      • Amy on July 22, 2011 at 11:08 pm

        Check out angel care baby monitors, too. They have motion sensor pads that go under the matress. Total peace of mind! They even have a video one now (which i was bummed they didn’t have when I first bought my monitor, but I’m kind of glad now, because I would have been obsessively starring at the screen LOL)

        • Dani on July 23, 2011 at 12:02 pm

          I’m going to second the Angel Care Monitor! Talk about peace-of-mind! My sister and I both used it. It is the BEST baby investment I’ve made to date!

  16. Nicole P on July 22, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    I cannot say enough about the muslin swaddle blankets you listed- got them when I had my twins and they are the greatest. I used them for swaddling (can’t find anything better and it stays put) and also for blankets in the cold months to cover them in their car seat.

  17. Jackie Smith on July 22, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    That baby outfit is ADORABLE.

  18. Nicole on July 22, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    I used the AngelCare monitor to detect my little one’s breathing….this gave me sanity every night!!! It is just a pad that goes under the mattress, if you are looking for an alternate option to the clip.

    Also, check out consumer reports regarding the Orbit. It might save you some grief!

    Isn’t shopping fun!!! It only gets better!

  19. Brittany @ Itty Bits of Balance on July 22, 2011 at 4:40 pm

    LOVE the Moby wrap! It reminds me of a kangaroo 😀

  20. Michelle on July 22, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    The Orbit had some AWFUL,scary, safety reviews a year ago or so. Hope they have resolved that. They are very sleek looking. (expensive and I’d have been really mad to spend that much for an unsafe product!) Chicco makes great products and are VERY safe. They also are rated for babies up to 30lbs and 30inches, if I am remembering right. The longer backwards, the better. They are endorsed by many safety seat watch groups. Big thing is to test how it fits in your car(s). Most places will let you do a trial install at the store with your car. I have a SUV and had a heck of time finding one that fit safely. Have you checked out joggers yet? I have a Chariot I scored off Craigslist with all the accessories and LOVE it! We use it everyday. Sometimes bike and walk in one day! Those co-sleepers are cool, I wish we would have one.

    Register for EVERYTHING! You get a coupon towards your due date for like 10-15% off whatever is left on your registary. We know someone who put a big screen tv on there and got the 10% off at Target!! Babies R Us and Amazon do this also with their registeries also. We got lots of money off wipes, California Baby products, etc that weren’t purchased off our registery.

    Sorry for the looong, unsolicited advice, I have 4 kids, you live and learn! I wish someone would have told me not to buy half the stuff I did! 🙂

    • Fitnessista on July 22, 2011 at 4:46 pm

      for the stroller, we want something very modern and sleek looking, but safe. i’ll look into that.
      thanks for the tips!!

      • Michelle on July 22, 2011 at 5:08 pm

        (My husband pushes the pink “Bella” Chicco stroller.teehee Not super sleek and certainly not manly!)

        • Ginna on July 22, 2011 at 5:20 pm

          If your willing to spend on an Orbit have you considered a Bugaboo stroller? We saw them all over Europe and they really grow with the baby. Super sleek too! I have also heard the chIco strollers are super safe!

          • Fitnessista on July 22, 2011 at 5:24 pm

            my friend jeni has a bugaboo and i LOVE it, but it’s too heavy for me

          • Sabrina on July 23, 2011 at 12:20 am

            You should check out the bugaboo bee – I’m pretty sure it’s lighter than the chamelon and frog (I’ve got the frog, which I’ve had for six years and love, but I think they replaced the frog with the chamelon). The frog/chamelon is really designed for Europe, where you really don’t drive very often (and then don’t have to deal with getting the stroller in and out of your trunk), whereas the bee is geared more toward life the US, where you usually have to drive pretty much everywhere, so I think it collapses a bit easier, etc. Once I got used to using the frog, I haven’t found it to be heavy at all (and I’m a bit of a whimp), but it did take some getting used to, especially when my oldest outgrew the infant car seat and I had to switch to using the actual stroller seat, instead of the car seat base you just clipped the infant seat into. Either way, have fun shopping – I so miss baby shopping!

          • Fitnessista on July 23, 2011 at 12:43 am

            ooh good to know- i’ll look at the bee 🙂

  21. Melissa on July 22, 2011 at 4:43 pm

    Check out the angel care monitor for detecting movement and breathing it’s the only way I sleep at night. Love my cosleeper too!

    • Emily on July 22, 2011 at 8:19 pm

      so the angel care monitor really works? I have preemie twins, they should be coming home soon and I’m terrified that they’ll have an episode of apnea or bradycardia and won’t knock themselves out of it so I’ve been looking up monitors

  22. kt on July 22, 2011 at 4:49 pm

    As a nursing student who just finished her unit on the OB floor– I have to say that “cosleeping” crib is a great alternative to actual cosleeping, as we had to provide major education on the dangers of it to parents! Just like sleeping on tummies is a big “no-no” now, so is cosleeping. So props for finding that! And someone above mentioned breast pumps–check with your facility/hospital to see what their policy is, because we automatically gave a breast pump to anyone who was breastfeeding…they were manual, but came with attachments if the family wanted to buy the electronic pump to go with it!

  23. ellen on July 22, 2011 at 4:52 pm

    YES, baby shopping is the most fun! I don’t even like shopping for me, just baby.

    Am I the only one whose baby hated the ergo? I would wait until he is here before you buy 2 of something you are not sure he will like! I liked the ergo, but my son hated it, so it was a no-go. He preferred the moby.

    I also had the mini convertible co-sleeper. I only used it for about a month or so. I thought I would love it, but it just seemed to get in the way and did not seem very comfortable for my son for some reason. He slept better most everywhere else. 🙂

    • Erin on July 23, 2011 at 3:11 pm

      Totally agree on not investing to much money into something that your kid may not like. While I loved the ides of slings, my kid hated them (he wanted to be upright rather than cradled) and in reality I thought they were pretty uncomfortable compared to the moby or ergo. Same with our co-sleeper. The idea of co-sleeping sounded nice but after 5 weeks in our room we were all ready for him to be in his own room and everyone slept better. You really never know what will work for you until you are living it.

  24. BethT on July 22, 2011 at 4:53 pm

    I absolutely LOVE that you want two Ergos! Ha! You’re so stylish…ours constantly has baby puke and dog hair on it. If the Pilot is tall, you may want the second one to be an Ergo sport which is good for bigger dudes (I’ve heard).

  25. Jen @ healthylaps on July 22, 2011 at 5:01 pm

    Hey Gina,
    Just thought I’d put in my 2 cents about my favorite baby products thus far (i have a 3 month old)!!
    -Uppa Baby stroller – we love it! you can use the carseat and it has a bassinet and a seat (similar to the orbit i think…)
    -moby wrap – i used it religiously for the first 2 months.
    -ergo – get the infant insert and you can start using it right away, love the ergo!
    -aden and anais muslin blankets and burpy bibs – they are awesome!
    -dr. browns glass bottles – love them!
    -thirsties cloth diapers – my husband and i both love these because you put them on just like a regular disposible, super easy to wash and re-stuff (they are pocket diapers)!
    I did so so so much research before putting anything on our registry…it was so much fun!
    Have fun with it…babies are the best. 🙂

  26. Jen @ healthylaps on July 22, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    Oh, and the aden and anais sleepsacks! we never swaddled (my little girl hated it), but the sleepsacks are good once they cant be swaddled anymore, too!

  27. Karen Wright on July 22, 2011 at 5:12 pm

    Hi there! So excited to hear you guys are into co-sleeping! I hear it is so much more supportive to the mom as well!

    A friend of mine and his wife did the co-sleeping thing with their son, and did the coolest thing to transition him into his own bedroom; When he was about 1year, they totally decked out a room in their house to be his room. As they were decorating, they would have him in there to watch, and would say things like “This is YOUR room.” or “This is your special big-boy room, all your own!” and make happy sounds. So when he was almost 2, he declared one day that he wanted to sleep in HIS room. They had zero issues with over-attachment, fear, anxiety, etc…b/c the room was a part of him, and he made the decision 🙂

    I just thought that was cool, and wanted to share!

    • Fitnessista on July 22, 2011 at 5:18 pm

      that’s a great idea!

      • Karen Wright on July 22, 2011 at 6:15 pm

        Oh, and for them, they actually had their baby in bed with them. As he says, “Never rolled over on him. Even asleep there is great awareness of the baby.”

        Now, really, if there is an alternative like the crib you showed, I say why take the risk?! I can’t help but acknowledge that probably 70% of the earths population co-sleeps in a family bed, and as far as I can tell, has no problem with UNDER-population.

        • Jenn on July 24, 2011 at 11:12 am

          70%? Where did you get that statistic?

          • Karen on July 25, 2011 at 12:07 am

            Oh, it’s not a statistic, although somewhere on the interwebs there must be. That’s why I said “probably” before it, and didn’t reference anything. It’s just that many of us naturally think (usually not intentionally) all lives are like our life. The majority of the worlds population is below or at our national poverty level. For much of the population to sleep in bed with your baby is just how it’s done.

            I also want to point out (just in case) that I fully support embracing a better way if available, like I stated before 🙂

  28. Ashley @ Thefitacademic on July 22, 2011 at 5:26 pm

    wow – uhhh, do i have to have a baby to use that diaper bag?! It’s so cute! : )

  29. Emily on July 22, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    I got an ergo at babysteals too! Couldn’t pass up that deal! I also got some cloth diapers on there and at They have some great stuff! 🙂

  30. Melissa Strickland on July 22, 2011 at 5:41 pm

    Just a thought on the co-sleeper. I purchased one when I had my daughter 3 years ago. When we used it, the top of the co-sleeper was level with our mattress, so she was actually sleeping below our mattress level. One day I walked in our bedroom and noticed one of our bed pillows had fallen into the co-sleeper. She was not in it at the time, but it freaked me out, and I began thinking that if she had been in it, she would have been smothered. I know that you are supposed to have it adjusted so that the co-sleeper mattress is level with your bed mattress, but I guess we were just lazy, I can’t remember. So, my advice is, whatever you do, please make sure you keep them both level!! We ended up just using the co-sleeper as a bassinet away from the bed, and I learned how to sleep with her when nursing at night, but I’m still paranoid about the proper usage of them.

  31. Andrea of Care to Breed on July 22, 2011 at 6:08 pm

    Another website – (same concept as baby steals)
    Two things – I have a Sleepy Wrap which is probably a rip off of the Moby Wrap. I decided to go with the Sleepy Wrap because it has spandex in the material. With the Moby, you kind of have to figure out how big your kid is before you put it on because there isn’t much “give” in the material. With the Sleepy, you can just put it on the same way every time (very tight) because with the spandex, it stretches around your kid. I’m pretty sure they have an organic version. Also, we borrowed a co-sleeper from a friend, and Bronwen grew out of it super fast – she moves a ton while sleeping and kept running into the sides. We would have been better off with a playard since they are bigger (unless you’re set on having something attached to the side of the bed). Just some unsolicited two cents 🙂

  32. Jamie@cupcakedynamite on July 22, 2011 at 6:26 pm

    I was ten when my brother was born (about 14 years ago..) and I don’t remember my mom have any cool stuff- they seriously make the best things for moms and babies now! I love that baby bag, it’s cuter than my purse!

  33. mary on July 22, 2011 at 6:44 pm

    Cool stuff! So much is new!

    I’d recommend not buying many newborn outfits. Odds are you’ll get so many as gifts he’ll only be in that size long enough to wear each one once or twice. Buy outfits for a little older baby because you won’t get many for gifts and they get a lot more use.

    I was really glad I had a loaner bassinet because my baby only used it for a month. She was big and ready for a crib. If I was trying to cut corners (not that you are, I’m just that way) I’d spend the bassinet money on a Pack&Play. You’ll get use out of that for years.

    You might find your romantic life is hindered by co-sleeping or even having the baby in your room for months. Even if it’s a newborn asleep across the room sometimes it’s still too weird!

    • mary on July 23, 2011 at 10:18 pm

      Oh, I just noticed that co-sleeper also converts to a ‘playard’ (their word). Cool! The Graco is about 50% larger and 1/3 the price, but the other one might be a more comfy bassinet. The Graco is often used a travel crib so it’s probably less plush. And I could see having a great bassinet especially if you’re planning on multiple kids!

  34. Tracy @ Commit to Fit on July 22, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    I love the hooded towel, just adorable!

  35. Erica on July 22, 2011 at 6:55 pm

    I bought the Snuza for my baby when he was about 3 months old. It worked great – I had the same concerns and was checking on him about 50 gazillion times a night. I researched both the Snuza and Angel Care but preferred Snuza for the ease and simplicity of it. I bought it from Amazon for $99 if I remember correctly. They have 2 different models, we just got the basic model. I was worried about the reviews of the alarm going off randomly (same for the angel care) but that happened maybe once or twice (snuza/diaper wasn’t snug enough and lost contact with his body) but my baby slept through it. Plus when he got older and started rolling over, he seemed to prefer his stomach and there was no way of preventing him from rolling over in his sleep…so I attached the Snuza to the back of his diaper and it still worked great.

  36. Shayla @ The Good Life on July 22, 2011 at 6:57 pm

    Thanks for the tip! And I love everything you’ve chosen so far, especially the hooded towel, too cute 🙂

  37. Wendy on July 22, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    I just started using California Baby products this year on my 7 year old (sensitive skin) and love their products. They are cheaper at Target then Whole Foods.

  38. Jessica@Fruit and Veggie Tales on July 22, 2011 at 7:27 pm

    Congrats again! I loooooove baby wearing and actually have two wrap-style carriers like the Moby but I highly dislike the moby! I thought I would send you the link to the Sleepy Wrap which is the same idea but it has some give in the fabric whereas the Moby hurt my back because it had no give at all! The Sleepy Wrap is not so stretchy that it sags, it’s juuust enough so it’s wonderful! (they also have an organic option!)

    You will love that mini co-sleeper! We have one too and it was really helpful and so light that you can wheel it around as a traveling bassinet during the day! I don’t know what made me think of this but if you et a swing, get one that has an AC adaptor as well as batteries! Batteries are so expensive and they run out so quickly but the adaptor is a lifesaver!

    Also, cloth diapers are so much fun! Both babysteals and babyhalfoff had cloth diapers on sale today! haha I really like the Bum Genius 4.0’s but I did not like the 3’s I use Hemp inserts for all of my diapers and I love them! You ca get them at Kelly’s Closet but they also have them at Abby’s Lane and they have free shipping all the time!

  39. @HilaryFleming @ on July 22, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    I love the Moby and the Ergo! Great choices. As for the co-sleeping—I know it works great for so many moms but if you are one that will wake up with every squeak that the baby makes, it might be a nightmare. Initially I thought I would co-sleep but the babe ended up in his crib, in his room after 2 weeks and we both slept better because of it. Get one of those video baby monitors so you can always see them in their crib. Brings lots of piece of mind 🙂

  40. J3nn (Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) on July 22, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    When I saw the Boppy pillow on HEAB’s blog, that’s EXACTLY what I said: “I want one in my size!” LOL Looks so comfy, right? 🙂

    I love those moby wraps, such a sweet way to carry the baby. And that crib is a genius idea!

    Love all your lusting for 🙂
    I have an amazing Babybag that looks similar but a little cheaper. It’s a skip Hop Studio bag in Champagne color. I just googled it to see exactly what it was called and found out Michelle Williams has/had one. I had a black one first then after 8 month sof rough wear and twar I told the company it was freying and they sent me a new one in the mail!!! I chose champagne for this one. I still use it with my 20 month old son. We are having #2 so I might switch it up but LOVE this bag:)

    i have a 10 week old and totally love the moby and muslin blankets. best purchases! i bought all these things for safe co-sleeping too and….3 nights of no sleep had our pedi suggesting real, in the same bed, co-sleeping! i was so freaked out the first night but it’s been the best thing for the 3 of us. i get 9 hrs of sleep each night – thanks to side laying breastfeeding. my only advice is just never say never. statistically, if you are ex. bf – no bottles/formula – your baby is safer in bed with you than alone in a crib (when it comes to sids) – something about heartbeats, sleep cycles, etc. our hippy pedi was very informative and helpful.

    i would also not go crazy on the bottles. most pumps come with bpa free bottles and newborn nipples which are convenient and work great. i also would say get a sleep sack – aden/anais make one and that’s a great sleeping/blanket alternative.

    I had #4 and #6 and LOVED them both! I wish I had had that diaper bag. It looks fab.

    Hi Gina! My aunt had the tummy breathing monitor clip thingy for my cousin when he was born, and it’s AMAZING. it super sensitive, and when it goes off it’s very annoying…ya can’t miss it ;). Highly recommend! And congrats again. 🙂

    When you’re ready to transition out of the infant car seat, check out the Evenflo Symphony 65. It is the best car seat ever! I have never been able to get any car seat tighter than this one and it is so unbelievably easy to switch to another car if needed.

    If you like the moby wrap then check out I have a wrap from there and loved it when my son was little. Same as the moby but cuter/more designs. They are great for little infants. Nothing soothed my son like this wrap.

    Love the ergo too. Especially for when my son was 5months+. I had various slings too but my son really preferred to be upright.

    Also in terms of baby monitors/breathing. There was recently a great piece on NPR ( it was about SIDS and how researches actually believe that most cases of “SIDS” are not really SIDS. Cities that use to have many cases of SIDS now report no cases. Rather once they investigate they find that there was a cause (baby not sleeping on back, baby in bed with parents and being suffocated by them, toys,blankets or bumper in crib). Basic point was that if you follow the rules and put your child to sleep in a safe place (crib with nothing soft) there is pretty much no risk of your child dying. Definitely put me at ease.
