(Lola 9 months)
Here are my priority list for baby gears (MUST HAVE) :
- Carseat (newborn to toddler) - Britax & MaxiCosi.
- Stroller - Quinny Zapp Xtra, Mamas Papas Sola, Joie Chrome & Cocolatte iFlex.
- Baby Bather (not Baby Bath Tub) - Carters.
- Sterillizer (with big space) - Tommee Tippee.
- Breast Pump - Medela Swing, Medela Manual & Avent Manual.
- Big Diapers Bag - SkipHop & BabyMel.
And here the not so important baby stuff :
- Baby Carrier - I'd prefer using stroller.
- Playmat - Lola likes to play everywhere.
- Baby Gym.
- Hat Blanket.
- Travelling Cot.
Most baby stuffs are not cheap & such a waste because of the short period of use. So don't buy all of them until your baby is born. Since it was my first time having a baby, I bought tons of stuffs that turned out to be useless. Including toys!! Baby gift is something that I recommend. Just wait until you open all of them. And then buy the stuff that you think you'll need it.
About toys? Don't buy anything that cost a lot of zeros. Baby is a moody person. She'll throw and hate it as quick as she wants. Now I'd prefer giving her any kind of stuffs at home as long as not sharp and small. Baby toys might better because of the safe material but expensive. As your baby getting older, she'll be interest on something new everyday and dislike the same toys to be play over and over again.
About fashion? White is a big no no. Baby = messy. My favorite is bold colors. Stains stays but the color looks faded. Jumpsuit (covered leg) has the shortest period for baby clothes. Dress is the longest. You can wear it from newborn until 1 year. And shoes? I've lots of them but rarely being used and suddenly my baby's feet is already longer. So shoes is not that necessary.
And also my baby likes to chew her shoes, open it and throw. I guess before she can walk, shoes is just an accessories. If you're having a baby girl, these days legging and bandana are the most fave items. Yess you should have tons of them, hahaha.
Okayy I guess that's it. Lets go to bed tweeps. Nitey nite and have a wonderful dream.
