An e-mail challenge that I thought I'd post here...first, the baby edition. Later, the toddler edition.
FIVE FAVORITE BABY ITEMS
1 - Swaddle Me wraps/Halo Sleep Sack with swaddle wrap
2 - Bum Genius diapers
3 - Baby Bees lotion & shampoo
4 - zip-up sleepers (no snaps to line up, yay!)
5 - glider chair
FIVE FAVORITE BABY "TOYS"
1 - jumperoo
2 - old walker from the Hershmans - takes up very little space compared to newer walkers!
3 - Donna's old play gym
4 - bouncy seat (we got a "new" one from a garage sale, yay!)
5 - Bumbo seat
FIVE THINGS WE COULD HAVE LIVED WITHOUT
1 - an abundance of terry cloth bibs (I kept the special ones from family, but gave away everything else...who needs 75 tiny bibs for one baby?! I'd rather they go to someone who needs them!)
2 - prefold "old-fashioned" cloth diapers (I have no patience...)
3 - Boppy pillow (I only used it as a place to set Alex...it never helped with feeding him!)
4 - baby monitor (although we use it now with Alex in his toddler bed)
5 - bottles (remember my non-bottle drinker? sigh.)
FIVE WISHES (should I happen to win the lottery that I've never played...)
1 - more BumGenius diapers
2 - a few more thick hooded towels & thick baby washcloths
3 - cute, boyish burp clothes (SO not a need, but I'm jealous of the cute girly ones that Kat & Karen have!)
4 - Joovy Caboose stand-on stroller (not a need, but sure would be nice...this sage colored one on Amazon is beautiful...hint, hint...early birthday gift for your wife, Keith!
5 - a second big boy carseat
