          One product that I really loved was a wipe warmer. At night when you change them, they will wake up a lot more if you put a cold wipe on that warm little butt. With warm wipes, most of the time I can change them without waking them up.

                    Um... I think nursing covers are def necessary I know from my experience after breastfeeding my son for a year and half he started pushing and kicking while eating (basically moving a lot) so if I didn’t have the nursing cover that locks around the neck I’m sure the cover would’ve fell off every time.

                        Your voice is literally so soothing lol but great video especially since my baby is due next week and trying to get as much info as possible. Skipped purchasing a lot of "fancy" items. The one I did splurge on was the halo bassinett since it was recommended to me since I'm having a c section. We'll see how it goes. Love the idea about the cloth diapers and have added those to my list. Never would have thought of it so thank you!

                              Mom of 3- totally agree with you on all of these- especially the cloth diapers! We CD and use disposables and having cloth on hand is so great- I even use them for household cleaning haha. Great video!

                                I regret using anything designed to have a baby on it's back. Newborns should be in their tummies til their heads have hardened enough not to flatten them by being in their backs 2 much..

                                        I'm interested in that big flower bather. Yall think it would work in a big open sink rather the one that's divided like hers?

                                          G. C. Haven’t tried it personally but have heard people complaining about it not being useful in larger sinks since you’re required to hold baby with one hand and try to wash with the other and it’s more difficult than using it in a divided sink where the baby has more support from the sink itself.
                                          Also heard a lot of people complaining about it taking FOREVER to fully dry and it getting cold during bathing.

                                            THANK YOU!!! We had a "co-sleeper", and it was anything but. It was great for keeping diapers and wipes right next to the bed for night changings! 😂

                                            I am definitely looking into that Dock a Tot this time around!

                                              I disagree with the swaddlers, but that's because after several kids, I STILL could not swaddle with a blanket to save my life.

                                                A bassinet in arms reach of the bed is great if your newborn spits up a lot.  When they start crying in the night you can reach your hand in and feel around for spitup without getting up or turning the lights on.  No spit, then you can roll over till feeding time.  Nothing is worse than getting up out of the bed 20 times cause they might have spat up again.

They don't really get dirty so there's not a lot of need to wash them very often :) I'm not planning to really do that. When they're toddlers I'm going to bathe them in the tub when they're genuinely dirty (you can see dirt lol) but excessive washing is getting to be more mainstream known as something we don't need to do! Unfortunately do to my own health needs I can't do cosleeping but as long as you're in the same room or very close by it's not a huge issue. There's still loads of other time to wear them for naps or have lots of skin to skin or other bonding time!

All our babies scratched at their face and with these all in one pjs we never had to keep track of tiny socks or mittens . Our second must have is the Aiden and Anias snap swaddles ;)
