    **many of you have mentioned the crib bumper that you see in the crib during this video. Olivia was still sleeping in our room at the time, I removed it as soon as she went into her crib for sleep. It’s SOLELY for looks!! I am a safe sleep advocate and would NEVER put my baby in a crib with a bumper. Thank you so much for yalls concern about this 💕**

    I always find these videos so interesting. Personally, my nursing pillow saved my life! I’m a bit on the taller side, so I needed it in order to support my wee lady high enough to nurse her. I actually had one upstairs and one downstairs in our house, and I brought it along with me if we ever went anywhere.
    The thing we got that we barely used was her white noise machine. She absolutely hated it! Her bassinet had a white noise setting on it too, and it never helped. This was so tough because she was such an awful sleeper, and that was always a recommendation anytime I researched how to help her.
    I’m actually rewatching a lot of these videos since we are planning for baby number two. I’m super curious about how different things will be for round two.

      Honestly if you’re gonna co-sleep I’d skip the doc a tot anyways. I might be wrong but I thought the company didn’t even recommend co-sleeping with it anyways, I always thought it was more of a baby lounger. Like a soft spot to put your newborn down on and not for sleeping at all. I know at least other similar products advertise as a longer and not for sleep.

        Babies are so different. My baby loves soothies so he took well to the advent bottles. I noticed he had been sipping up a lot so I bought Dr. Browns bottles and he would not take them. Also when my nephew was a baby he hated his baby swing it would scare him so he would grad the sides of it to stop it from swinging. My baby just turned 5 months and he loves his swing. It puts him to sleep 😴🙂

          I'm an aspiring minimalist so I didnt get/buy very much for my baby. He has the boppy lounger which has been my FAVORITE thing for him. He also really loves his swing. I think people buy so much and dont really need most of it to be honest

              If the dock a tot is used according manufacturer guidelines I definitely don’t have a problem with them! I’ve seen many people use them against manufacturer guidelines. it may work great for you! I personally didn’t find a use for mine, you may absolutely love yours!! Total personal preference 💕💕 thanks for watching!!

                In my opinion the doc a tot is really a waste of money. I am a soon to be first time mom but a nanny for years and i dont really see the need for it. I was gifted a box of paci wipes, and the first time i have heard of them honestly so lets see. Baby shoes just donmake sense sorry

                We're still using the boppy, daughter is 3 1/2 but I hated it for trying to breastfeed or bottle feed. We used a regular pillow instead. She just sleeps on it now and we used it for propping when she was tiny but that was it.

                  I don’t have newborns anymore (mine are 15m) but I had to click on your video because I saw the dock-a-tot! I can’t even tell you how many times I have been dock-a-tot shamed!!!! Everyone made me feel bad for not getting it. I didn’t understand why people couldn’t see that it wasn’t safe. It almost blew my mind because people wouldn’t use bummers or pillows for their baby but they would use a DAT which was the same risk! Thanks for calling it out!

                    I honestly thought this video would get a lot of shame for me not loving it!!! When I first got it, I really thought it was going to be a MUST HAVE and it was actually my mom who pointed out the risk! The more I thought about it and did research, I realized I wasn't comfortable with using it. I'm glad to know I'm not alone. Totally thought I was going to be the minority!!

                    I’ve always felt like the Boppy pillow is so unnecessary. I just couldn’t see myself running to the other room to grab it before every feeding. But I had SO many people tell me how necessary it is and they INSISTED I add it to my registry so they could purchase it for me. I see myself using it more to prop the baby up or for tummy time but for I still never took it out of its package

                      My sister swore by the Boppy pillow after she had a C-section. She said that it kept pressure off of her stitches while feeding. She quit using it as much after healing though.

                    Bobby’s are amazing for babies once they start sitting up assisted. Worked in infant rooms, we used to stack two Boopys behind baby with something in between the legs to help stabilize, obviously this was supervised. It works wonders for assisted sitters.

                    Its just overwhelming the amount of baby products that are out there and in reality, life with babies is so hectic than we end up not having time for a lot of stuff and just go basic. Basic is key.

                      I have a boppy which I use all the time, but I have found that it depends on how and where I am sitting. Sometimes it puts the baby at just the right height and other times it does not. Overall I think it is worth it because regular pillows tend to slide away unless I have them braced against the arm of the chair or couch.

                      I tried the docatot for my baby when he was a newborn and we didn’t like it at all. When he was 5 months we tried it again and now we love it. He’s big enough we aren’t concerned of him rolling and suffocating in it and love how it gives him comfort. I do think it’s not recommended for inside a crib and only for cosleeping in bed.

                          Onesies with snaps. I do not have the time or energy to snap every snap especially late at night. NO! I got so many of them at the shower. Being a second time mom, I am investing in clothes that I just pull up and change the diaper and pull back down. They are called gowns and they are amazing! Plus my baby will be a winter baby. It is warmer for her to have her legs able to touch and lock in that heat. Snaps no thanks! Gowns yes, please! Preferably ones with bows or hats that go with them!

                            The only reason i love that they make them is NICU babies! it makes the wires easier to put through, with zipper sleepers it makes the wires come out through the neck around the baby’s head, but with the snaps you can easily put the wires through the little areas that are open

                            @I Love The Colour Pink
                            Some parents are blessed with kids who will sleep through the night that young. However, most are not that lucky. "Most babies don't start sleeping through the night (6 to 8 hours) without waking until they are about 3 months old, or until they weigh 12 to 13 pounds. About two-thirds of babies are able to sleep through the night on a regular basis by age 6 months...Once a baby begins to regularly sleep through the night, parents are often unhappy when the baby starts to wake up at night again. This often happens at about 6 months old. This is often a normal part of development called separation anxiety. This is when a baby does not understand that separations are short-term (temporary). Babies may also start to have trouble going to sleep because of separation anxiety. Or because they are overstimulated or overtired." (Stanford Children's Health). Not every baby or kid is the same. Just like most adults have different sleep patterns, babies have different sleep patterns also. Just because your kid is no longer a baby does not mean they won't wake you up in the middle of the night for some reason. I was woken up a few nights ago to change my four year old's sheets. Things to help when you're sleep deprived are worth it.

                          I'm about to have my baby #4 and I agree with all of these. Babies in outfits are so uncomfortable, and all of the fancy things like WiFi monitors weren't around when I had my first 14 years ago... They just make me stressed!! I would get a pair of moccasins if you have an autumn or winter baby instead of shoes just to keep their feet warm when you're out, but other than that baby shoes are just funny when you see them after you've had a baby 🙈 xx

                          I agree with most of these. I really wanted a doc a tot this round. But too expensive. But my babies have all loved the boppy. My boys (8&4) still sleep with theirs. We bedshare but have her crib up against my side so we can move her if needed. We cloth diaper so I love shirts and separate bottoms but we live in Florida so it’s usually just a diaper and shirt lol. Love your video.

                          Dock a tots in USA aren’t approved for safe sleep either. That is why they are called a cosleeper-the only thing safe for sleep is a bassinet, pack n play, and crib. I guess the only purpose would be supervised awake time during the day. However, idk if it’s even supposed to go on the couch or only approved to go on the floor.

                            I loved the DockATot but hated that my daughter got so dependent on it. It was nice when we traveled home to family that she could sleep. We don’t co-sleep but I surprised myself, when she got a cold at 2 months, I wanted her close to me to hear her breathe and co-slept then in this. It was great.

                              This video is EXACTLY all of my thoughts on baby things all rolled into one. From the dock a tot to the lollipop. Same same same. ❤️

                                I thought I would be the odd ball when I made this video 🤣 so many people rave about all of the things I mentioned! I’m glad I’m not alone!!

                              The snuggle me organic snuggler is so much better than the dock-a-tot!! It’s safer, cheaper and made of organic materials! I love that thing and have gotten soooo much use out of it🙌 life saver!!

                                I know so many people love the snuggle me!! Maybe when we have another baby I'll try it out.

                              My sister is an infant teacher at a daycare (in America) and they are not allowed to use dok a tots because they’re a huge SIDS risk.

                                Yes!!! So much risk! Not worth it to me.

                                I personally love pacifier wipes for times when we are out or a sink isn’t easily accessible at the time!

                                  That makes sense! Olivia never took Paci, but if our future babies do I could totally see them coming in handy.

                                I work in childcare and anytime I see stuff about the dokatot or even when I see parents use cosleepers or even when they put tons of blankets and stuffed animals in the cribs I cringe so hard. The baby can suffocate!!! It makes me crazy seeing that stuff. I did extensive training on sleep safety for babies and it is so serious.

                                  Something to think about with a blanket. If the ends are tucked underneath the mattress and safety pinned at all 4 corners under the mattress there is nothing to worry about. We did this with our daughter during the winter. We lived in Switzerland it got extremely cold and our house was 300 years old. The house had shitty insulation. This SIDS is really overrated. Majority of Europe has low SIDS rates. Babies cosleep, have bumpers, have blankets, and a stuff animal.

                                  @Chantal Chantal You can do whatever you feel is best for you and your baby! I'm a worry wart and personally only choose to use the bassinet or crib for safe sleep!

                                  Why can you leave your baby in to safely nap besides a bassinet? Im so confused if it’s not a snuggle me or Dockatot
