  • A bouncy chair. By the time he was in one at someone else's house, we only had a few months before he got too big for one. He loved that thing.

  • Fiatpax .. If you're talking about the Soothies, which are (usually) green round base .. they sell them at Walmart.

    Socks, Booties, and more onsies are the things I wish I had purchased before both my kids were born.

  • I can honestly say that we had everything that we needed. We have a wonderful group of family and friends and they helped take of everything even if it was on loan from them.

  • A Boppy pillow. I sent my husband out to get one when my first was 2 days old. It made nursing soooo much easier!

  • I wish we got a swing sooner. By the time we got one he hated it and returned it then found one at a thrift store for $20. he loved that one but was only able to use is for 2 months. Atleast it was worth the $20 and didnt waist a huge amount of money!
