There are a few baby items I wasn't such a fan of when Kavan was a little nugget.
- I didn't like his Comfort Cradle Boppy Bouncer and I dont think he was much of a fan of it either. It seemed boring and too cushy and he looked like he was sinking in it. He never really wanted to be in it or play with it. I didnt really move it from room to room much either which I want to be able to do with the new nugget. I'd like something a bit more functional and baby friendly.
- I wasnt such a fan of his Bassinet either. The mattress was super thin and looked uncomfortable and it didnt rock or play music or anything. It turned into a toy chest when we were done with it which is ok but not the greatest feature in the world. I want something that is jazzed up this time round and I can move around if I wanted to.
- I didn't like the tub situation for the first few months. I don't feel comfortable bathing him in the sink - never liked the idea of him being nekkie in the kitchen where there is a draft and that everything is so hard around there, counters floors etc. I just stuck to my bedroom where it was nice and cozy and I gave sponge baths on my bed which was a bit silly since it all got wet. I need a tub which encloses a newborn a bit more than the bigger ones for when theyre a few months old.
This time round, I may get this for the next baby - a Fisher Price rock n play bouncer/bassinet. I saw it on this mama's blog with a really helpful review and video of her baby in there and it looks really good!
I also really really liked this TUB for a newborn. I've never seen anything like this and it seems like it snuggles the baby in there perfectly. I saw it on the same mama's blog with a pretty helpful review and video.
I'm still on a search for a really good bassinet. A girlfriend of mine has one where it rocks and plays music and u can detach the bassinet part like a carseat and it can serve as a moses basket essentially - carrying it from room to room, altho it could get pretty heavy. It just seemed so compact and perfect. I'm still on the hunt for it.
If anyone has any items they loved for the second baby that they missed out first time round - pls throw it out there!! I'm all ears :)
