This, That, and the Other Thing

Necessities – Clean Up

My list for baby gear needed for bath time and laundry: (1) Baby Bath Tub – You won’t need anything fancy, just make sure you get a tub that has an infant insert.  I will also say we received good customer service from Fisher Price.  The first tub we had, had a slow leak and they immediately sent us a brand new one. (3)* Baby Bath Towels – I like the hooded towels.  The Babies R Us brand towels have…

Necessities – Feeding

My list for feeding gear.  There is a general section, followed by breastfeeding and bottle feeding specific sections. Buy these items before baby is born: (10)* Burp Cloths – I liked the flannel Babies R Us brand, which they don’t seem to make anymore, so I just recommend going with flannel cloths instead of terry cloth.  Cloth diapers also work well as burp cloths. *will need (14) for twins (10)* Bibs – we received a lot of bibs for presents,…

Necessities – Sleeping

Necessities – Sleeping

The following are must haves for sleeping: (1)* Bassinet – I highly recommend the Fisher Price Rock ‘N Play sleeper.  All my kids slept well in them.  I also recommend the deluxe model.  We had received two of these for the twins.  We registered for the regular version and received the deluxe as a gift.  There was a big difference in the softness of the padding and we ended up returning our regular model for a deluxe model.  We have…

Below are my recommendations for diaper brands and quantities, plus must have diaper changing accessories.
