My mom, sister, and baby Nicole came over yesterday to help me register for our baby girl. The goal of this trip to Babies R Us was to get the baby "must haves". My sister just had baby Nicole in March, so between her and my mom who watches Nicole four times a week, they were both a wealth of information. Last week, Jeff and I registered for the big items. Yesterday, it was all about baby bottles, baby care needs, and baby activity items. Baby Bottles: I decided to go with the Dr. Browns BPA Free plastic bottles. I have heard these bottles are great. They have several more working parts to clean, however, I am willing to take the extra steps for a good bottle. My sister is currently using Advent bottles and is just not happy with them. They are prone to leakage if you are not careful and Nicole has actually developed a rash on her neck from the milk leaking down her chin and pooling in her neck. Poor little thing. Needless to say, my sister is in the process of buying a whole new set of bottles.
Baby Care Needs:
Yes, I decided to register for a baby wipe warmer. I know there is a lot debate on whether or not this is a necessary baby product. After discussing it with my sister, she explained that she wish she would of had one, especially when Nicole was first born. The cold wipes would provoke Nicole to pee all over her so that was enough reason for me to sign up for this item. I registered for the Especially for Baby Wipe Warmer with Light.
My sister and other new Moms that I have spoken to have provided me with mixed reviews on the necessity of a Diaper Genie. They are not fans of dealing with the twist top, especially when you are in the middle of changing a messy diaper. I was so excited to see that Diaper Genie has come out with a new product, the Diaper Genie Elite. My sister says the foot pedal idea is genius and not sure why it was never designed this way to begin with. I am willing to give this new version a go.
Since our little girl will be born in the middle of the Cleveland Winter, I found a JJ Cole Bundle Me to be very necessary. And how cute that it comes in pink???
Baby Activity Items:
Looking through my registry now, I realized I purchased several of the Fisher Price Rainforest items. They were just so cute and all received great reviews.
