My baby bottle/pacifier sterilizer

Or my vibrating papasan/bouncy chair.. the only way I could take a shower was to put my kiddos in it and they would go to sleep.

DD slept in her swing for the first 10 weeks. I'd have died without it. Also swaddlers, the moby/ergo and the boppy.

My Moby without a doubt! I got one for my 4th and I have kicked myself ever since that I didn't start baby-wearing sooner. I can't wait to do it again

My most used items were my baby carrier- it's a Beco Butterfly, the Fisher Price Rock n' Play, andnd my Boppy- though this time around I'll be trying the My Brest Friend nursing pillow as I've heard it's way better than the Boppy.

I'd say the vibrating bouncer, it also let me shower every day! DH would probably say the big papasan swing, he used it a lot to get Connor to nap!

It's so funny how everyone loved their boppy, I tried using it for nursing and found it easier without it! I ended up using it later on to prop him up to sit ha. I may try the my breast friend this time also.

I also can't wait to try a ring sling this time around! I had a moby in the beginning, but Connor would get SO hot in it (May baby), so I ended up selling it. I don't even want to think about trying it in the heat of June! I ended up getting an ergo sport that he and I both LOVED.

That's exactly how I felt about it. I brought it to the hospital but hated it. Hubby used it as a neck pillow (still does sometimes). I used it to prop my son up a lot and used it for his "month-by-month" pictures.

I love the infant-to-toddler vibrating rocker. I didn't get a swing cuz I didn't want something else to take up more room. The rocker is awesome, and my son still gets in it sometimes. I hope he can give it up for the new baby!

For Lily- the bouncy seat. She loved it and I could get so much done with her in it.

For Abri- she was a terribly fussy baby. My Ergo and the Moby style wrap I made was a lifesaver. I wore Abri until she was almost one. It was the only way I could get anything accomplished. Also the swaddle blankets and swing. We had to swaddle her until she was 9 months to sleep, and she napped in the swing for 5 months.

I would say the bouncy with my first 2 they loved it! With DD she slept in her swing for the first 5 months thank goodness for that swing! (dont know if this counts) She also had colic we tried alot of things and colic calm was a lifesaver without it Idk what we would have done! We seen a huge difference in her with that! I also still give it to her from time to time it helps with her fussiness with teething!!

I also just used the boppy as a prop. I found breastfeeding with it really awkward and when I went to Dr. Jack Newman's clinic they made a good point which was "when your out in public you won't have a pillow so your probably better off learning without it". In any case I know people who absolutely love it.

I'm going to jump on the moby wrap train for my most loved item. I was out on the subway and walking everywhere with DD when she was 3 days old and up until she was almost 1 it was the only way she would sleep for any period of time.

Without a doubt, my Medela Pump In Style breastpump. With my first, we had tons of trouble nursing so I ended up pumping for him. With my second, I went back to work at 12 weeks and it was an essential for short pump breaks. Worth every cent.

(Oh, I definitely loved the boppy. I was still using it when I weaned by 13 month old)
