1: Samsung Smart View Baby Monitor – We love this! Being the overly paranoid first time parent, this is the only way I can let my baby sleep in the other room during nap time. (Maybe eventually she’ll sleep in her own room at night. One day.) I can watch her sleep, make sure she’s breathing, it will alert me if she starts making noise, it’s wonderful. (We got ours refurbished for much cheaper than the original price and it works like a charm!)
2: Chicco Perseo High Chair – This was one of the gifts we received from our baby shower. E loves being in it, whether it’s to watch us cook, play with her toys, or eat some rice cereal. It has adjustable height, reclines, and folds up to fit perfectly in the corner.
3: Bumbo Chair with tray – My mom found this bumbo seat at a yard sale and we use it daily! E looks like such a big kid sitting up on her own. When we set her in it in front of the mirror, she’ll chat and smile to herself.
4: Infantino Square Activity Gym – Oh my gosh, probably my favorite thing we have purchased so far. First of all, it’s darn adorable. Seriously. The dangling toys and mirror keeps Ellie completely entertained and the pillow is great for tummy time. Best of all, it folds up suuuuuuuper easy and fits in the corner of our living room. A must have FOR SURE!
5:Lansinoh Manual Breast Pump and Storage Bottles – Since I started going back to school this semester, I purchased this manual breast pump and love it. It’s quick, easy, cheap, and exactly what I needed to pump just a few bottles weekly. I also recently got the Medula Pump in Style pump, and am anxious to try out an electric one!
