Our Top 3 Baby Must-Haves + a Giveaweay #SearsBabysRoom

When I first found out I was pregnant with my son, I remember spending hours upon hours researching the latest baby gear, toys and nursery items.  I also vowed to myself to only buy the essentials - the things I'll need {or think I'll need} - such as a car seat, stroller, baby clothes, baby monitor and bottles {luckily, my parents helped us out with the crib and crib mattress}.

Little did I know, the things I bought that I didn't necessarily view as necessities suddenly became my lifesavers.  These included:
  1. Graco Pack 'N Play:  The version we had was a playpen, bassinet and change table all in one!  We were able to keep both babies in our room until they grew out of the bassinet {eight months for Lil J and over a year with Baby Z} and we've travelled with the playpen numerous times on airplanes, road trips - you name it!

  2. My Breast Friend:  Get that image out of your mind because it isn't really what you think it might be.  Whatever that is.  My Breast Friend is a nursing mother's best friend - hence the name.  It's a pillow made of soft foam that wraps around your body and makes breast feeding more comfortable for mom and baby.  It'll also do wonders for your back and arms, and you may even catch yourself snoozing off for a minute or two.  Shhhhh, don't tell anyone.
  3. Ergo Baby baby carrier:  I had tried different variations of baby carriers before the Ergo and, let me tell you, nothing compares.  Ergo Baby's ergonomic design makes all the difference when you're carrying your baby/child whether short or long distances.  Also, I found that having a carrier was more useful with the second baby since you're constantly running after your oldest.
