Your Mother/Baby/Child Must-Have Products?
« on: April 17, 2007, 11:52:18 AM »
Can we have a thread for those things you have found invaluable?

I'm grateful to whoever it was who posted about 'Baby Legs'.

I've got a bum shuffler whose clothes were forever riding up and she was getting scraped up legs and feet.

Good idea, I'll sticky it.

My must haves:

sudocream; footless sleepsuits; snowsuits.

Oooh was it me!!   [smiley=blush.gif] 

It's not really a mom/baby thing  but black out curtains!!  I don't think Squidge would sleep in the afternoon w/out them!!

In no particular order:

PureLan, bouncy chair, baby sling, simethicone (life saver!), sleep sack/bag

I've been using a black out curtain for my son for ages!! I just dug it out recently, there's no way he would go to sleep at eight this time of year without it!

I'm so grateful for teething tablets.  They are amazing.  Pretty sure someone on here told me about them (They are from the US) So thank you!

Josh has the coolest baby legs, has had them for almost 5 months now.  So cool.

If you are breastfeeding - MyBrestFriend or a proper cushion, at least, for feeding!

I second the bouncy seat and also our swing. Two sure-fire ways to calm her down.

OK, I was thinking recent items.  The Bumbo was brilliant for Josh, he loved it.

Hmmm, there isn't any one thing that stands out. Metanium for stubborn diaper rash is good but for me (and Sammy) in particular, it has to be summer rompers. He's a very slim baby and crawls out of his trousers. He also will crawl to the top of a sleep suit if it has feet or long legs. Rompers stay on but keep him cool. They are also much more accomodating of his big cloth diaper butt! Especially the ones from Hanna Andersson.

We've also had a bottle of Dr Bronners castile soap which we use as bath soap and shampoo. He's a year old and there's still loads left.
When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life. ~ John Lennon

Teething tablets and baby oragel liquid.  Much easier to apply for me than the gel. 
Bouncy seat.
Black out curtain.
Muslins to clean up anything and everything. 
Baby sleeping bags.
