Probably one of the most exciting things while waiting for a baby is buying all new stuff, preparing your home, washing and folding mini clothes for your little one. Here I have decided to write about some of the things that we bought for our little one and how useful or useless they were after Daniella’s arrival.
We didn’t buy Moses Basket, as we didn’t think it was necessary. And I really don’t miss it at all. during the day Daniella sleeps in her pram, so I can rock her a bit if necessary. I find it really handy!
Daniella’s Star-lite Swing Once Upon a Time is also from Mamas & Papas. It only depends to Daniellas mood whether she likes or not. But most of the time she falls asleep happily in it while listening to a soft music or watching cute blinking lights on the top of the swing. Would buy this again. Saves some time- batteries do all job here. 🙂
I think one of the best ideas was not to buy changing table for Daniella. At the beginning we were looking for one, but they looked so basic or plasticky (and the price is pretty high for what you get). So we came up with another idea. We bought a chest of drawers, put changing mattress on the top (glued it with two sided stickers, so it is not sliding around) and used this as a changing table. I could not be happier with the result! Looking nice, plenty of space for baby’s clothes, cosmetic, etc…
Daniella’s famous blue chair (bouncer) was a life saver since just after Daniella’s birth till nearly five months old. Edwards colleagues gave it to us as a gift. Daniella was always happily lying in it. We used to always take it with us when going to visit family or friends to their houses. Daniella loved it, we loved it. Pity, babies grow out of those cute things so fast… 🙂
A cosy nest for newborns and a comfortable cushion support for babies. We received it from my cousin when he came to visit Daniella. Unfortunately I realised a little too late that it can be used for newborns as a nest. However, it is pretty handy to have it now, when Daniella starts learning to sit by herself.
