  • The leapfrog soother music maker that soothed my daughter to sleep every night until she was 2 1/2. The vibrating baby seat. A stroller/car seat combo. Your baby's first year---a book given by my pediatrician I referred to it countless times to calm my worries. I could come up with so much more, but that's a good start.

  • The baby swing.... the sling.... those were my two favourite things. My youngest was not happy unless he was in motion, both of these kept me sane! LOL!
