A swing. I thought it was essential. Turns out, both my kids hated it. We have barely used an 140 dollar swing. Hopefully Josephine likes it!

And I would say a ring sling. It wasn't something I had with Liam and when Kieran came along I don't know how I lived without it. It was like a lifeline for fussy babies and the only way I went out in public for months. But it was a gift and not even something I think I would have bought myself.

The boppy, which just didn't work for me. So many of my friends swear by it.

And I agree with Ashlee, no one told me how lifesaving babywearing was. I finally got a Moby with Eli, and all I could feel was regret that I didn't have one sooner.

Our swing also didn't get much use, Eleanor wasn't a fan.

And actually the Boppy was a lifesaver for me when Eleanor was tiny. It really helped me nurse without back pain, which was a problem for me for some reason for the first couple weeks after delivery.

Hmmm... I had to have a crib and in the end it got ZERO use from Avery. Honestly I think she slept in it for 1 nap. I suppose we had it side carred for a couple months...

Hmm.. can't think of anything I didn't think I needed...

A side-carred crib. We used it briefly, then decided it wasn't working. Matthew is just in our bed now.
And the swing. Ash LOVED hers as a baby...Matthew had awful reflux and refused to stay in the swing for more than a couple minutes without screaming.
We got a moby and an ergo..didn't think I'd need them because Ash never liked carriers, but I did with Matthew! Nothing else ever worked.
He's the ultimate AP-demanding baby..lol!

I bought a couple glass bottles because I thought I could pump and she'd take a bottle from Daddy but she never ended up taking a bottle so that was a fail.

We bought a moby when I was pregnant that I used a lot around the house but we didn't get our Ergo until she was around 3 months. Both DH and I say that was our #1 baby item.

I agree with the swing. Drake used it like less them 5 times. He did not like it all. It turned into cute decoration. We also got a crib that was used like MAYBE 10 times, and that was for a nap when I was not taking one with him.
