2. Wing Back Rocker and Ottoman from PBK
3. 4Moms Mamaroo Infant Seat/Bouncer
4. Bloom Fresco Loft Black Base Highchair in Henna Brown
I picked this highchair as it is the only one on the market that goes up to counter height. The table in our breakfast nook is counter height so having a traditional highchair would be pointless. The other nice feature is that this can be used from birth (as it reclines) up to 79lbs. as it converts into a booster/play seat.
5. 2012 Baby Jogger City Mini GT
I was originally in love with the Baby Jogger City Elite but I wasn't fond of how long that chassis was. I was considering the City Mini but the wheels were plastic and not all-terrain. For 2012, Baby Jogger came out with a hybrid of the two called the City Mini GT. Not only does it have the foam filled wheels for all different types of terrain, it also features a handbrake, a large storage basket, an adjustable handlebar, and it even folds with one hand. The chassis is slightly larger than the City Mini but smaller than the City Elite. While this is not a jogging stroller, it will fit our needs just fine.
6. Diaper Dude Messenger II Diaper Bag
This choice was all on my husband. Since we decided that one diaper bag would work best for us, a girly one would not due for obvious reasons. While this is quite simple, it is also quite functional. It features one large compartment with a mesh pocket for baby's items and an additional compartment with a mesh pocket for the adult's items. Also features a padded shoulder strap, an insulated bottle holder, three large compartments with Velcro closure, dad's checklist screened on the magnetic flap and breathable mesh padding for extra comfort. Includes a padded changing pad, clips for stroller strap, an interior key clip and a removable cell phone holder. The perfect bag for us!
7. Motorola Digital Video Baby Monitor with 3.5" Screen and Wireless Camera
8. ERGObaby Baby Carrier
I originally thought that I wanted a Baby Bjorn as it seems as though that is what everyone gets, then I read several studies that show that they are bad for hip and spine development because all of the baby's weight just hangs putting undue stress and pressure on the pelvis and spine. My orthopedic doc actually recommended this carrier as the baby is in a natural sitting position which supports the natural rounding of the baby's spine.
9. Fisher-Price Newborn Rock n' Play Sleeper
10. Fisher-Price Jumperoo - Rainforest
This is another item that my husband picked out...and I actually love it too. I originally wanted the Baby Einstein Musical Jumper but I read some nasty reviews that the bungees would snap and/or pinch the baby's fingers and that the piece that goes between the legs was too wide, making it quite uncomfortable for the baby. This jumper got pretty good reviews and the videos on YouTube were even entertaining to watch!
