Boppy: although I do not have my baby yet, both of my friends have a boppy and they absolutely love it! One uses it to prop her daughter up during tummy time; she just lays her on it so that the pillow goes right across her chest and under her arms. That way she is propped up and can play. My other friend uses it to prop her kid up to sleep, eat, or learn to sit upright. She just puts it around the back of the baby and viola! I will def get one before my baby is born!
A way to save money on car seats and such is to look at your local second hand store. We have one here that is just for used baby stuff and most car seat covers come off so you can wash them. My sister has done that with both of her kids. It saves in that department.
Also depends on where you live. Some places will not allow second hand stores to sell them by law.
I don't know what the difference btw. a pack-n-play & a play yard is... (sry)
As for moving a pac-n-play from room to room... They all collapse. But ours was too much trouble. We really just wanted to wheel it into another room or outside. But we couldn't because it wouldn't fit through our doorways.So when you buy one, look at how big it is in comparison with your doorways & how difficult is it to collapse & put back together. If you can do it in under 5 minutes, it's a keeper.
Yes, our collapes, but we got the one with the diaper changing station, etc. It is a royal pain to take all of the stuff out, undo the changing station & mobile, collapse it, & move it up or down the stairs... So we never bothered moving ours. We wanted to take it outside when it was nice out, but it was too much work for us. We just put a blanket on the grass & put the travel gate around that.
It is nice to have one for a newborn, though. We used it as a second crib because we have a split level house with 4 levels. We have a crib/changing station on the top floor & the middle floor.
what about the Bebes Angel Sensor?? I was wondering if it is worth it. I am thinking that it might be a false sense of security and is kinda pricy does any1 have one??
Ohh I have a question about breast pumps....Now Im working, Im a SAHW and soon to be mom....so I mean I will be around the baby most of the time but Im thinking in the case that I do get out or have my MIL watch him would it be best to have a pump to give her breast milk so he wont be fussy, then Im thinking I might leak when out and about...etc....so either way I will need to get the milk out....
Should I get one anyway and what is good electronic one that is great but still not too pricey....
