I've seen these on other blogs & I know there are a few new or soon-to-be moms out there that might be wondering what to buy for their baby. I thought I would put my 2 cents in on what we are using the most & what we really have found useful for Jarrett. So, here is my review on a few items:
Zip-up Sleep & Plays. These are a little harder to find than you might think. I have found a few at Kohl's & Target. But, we LOVE the zip-up style of sleep & plays b/c they are SO easy to get on the baby. You don't have to fuss with buttons, just "zip" the baby right up!
Baby Einstein Lights and Melodies Mirror. I bought this a week or two ago & Jarrett is LOVING it. I keep it in the car in front of his car seat to entertain him. It plays classical music & will say the colors in 3 different languages. It also has a timer that goes up to 60 minutes (I think?)
I have to throw in that I bought the Baby Einstein Mozart DVD & the Baby Einstein Wake Up & Goodnight CD today. We watched the DVD tonight & he seemed to really enjoy it & surprisingly I did too! I haven't listened to the CD yet, but I can give a review later :)
Dr. Brown Baby Bottles. Yes, these are a pain to wash & put together (they have 4 parts to each bottle), but Jarrett seems to do great with them. Jason & I had read reviews on bottles before deciding what kind to buy. These all had high reviews & we have no complaints. My only advice is to not buy to many 4 oz. bottles because the baby will quickly be eating more. I recommend buying mostly the 8 oz.
Fisher-Price Precious Planet Music & Motion Soother. It's hard to entertain a newborn baby, but Jarrett loves LIGHT. This was a gift from Jason's uncle & Jarrett stays pretty entertained with this attached to his crib. It is very soothing & he loves to watch it light up & the little characters move around in it.
The Sleep Sheep from Pottery Barn Kids. I bought this when Jarrett was born & I keep this in his crib too. I like to put it on the rain sound & play it with his Precious Planet soother on the nature sounds. A lady in the store when I was in there buying this for him said her little boy was 3 years old & still using the sheep to this day! I love this sheep.
Well, that's all I can think of to review right now. I wanted to add a poll for my hair & just see what people say. Vote on the sidebar :)
