  • Well it is a luxury but my kids loved the johnny jumper and it was great when I needed to do dishes.

  • Exersaucer. My boys loved it!

    Books, building blocks (the kind with letters and numbers on them), "toddler" dishes and utensils for starting to eat table foods...

    Think of things you don't have now that you'll want in a few months. When are you going to start potty training? Do you have a potty chair/seat?

    Um....diapers are always a good gift! lol

  • My jumperoo. My 6 month old loves it! He'll jump in there for a half hour. And it makes him tired, which is great!

  • I would say a jumperoo or exersaucer. We have a doorway jumper (bought off CL for $5) and an exersaucer and both come in handy very often, plus my little girl loves them.

    If you already have something like that you could get Baby Einstein dvd's. Since I'm morning sick every morning I let my little girl watch a 30 min one while she plays on the floor so I can try to get some food down. It's so nice and she always coos and gurgles while watching it.

  • Jumperoo! We lived by that to get house hold chores done!

  • I have to agree on the jumperoo. We have an exersaucer as well, but hedoesn't last in it for very long.

  • First, an exersaucer.

    Second, a jumper. We had the doorway one and it's WAY cheaper than the floor ones.
