What is the best thing you bought for baby that kept you sane? I'm expecting triplets (I know! Holy crap!) And these are my first birth children. :) I just wanna know what more experienced mommas loved. Thanks :D

Swing, boppy pillow and bouncer were our most-used items.

I connected an old ipod to a set of speakers in the nursery. I store all of my baby's music on it (no need to change cds) and I also downloaded Dr. Bob's Help Baby to Sleep cd (white-noise- hairdryer) on it, so the ipod now turns into a sleep machine at nap and bedtime.

It wasn't necessarily anything that I bought, moreso a choice.... to breastfeed.  The "magic boobies" took care of anything and everything.  It was free, healthy, and always on hand.  It helped them get to sleep, helped them through teething pain, helped whenever they fell down, helped them through colic (that was a biggie!).  The main drawback was for anyone (including husband) who kept the baby while I ran errands since the "magic" went with me.

By the way, CONGRATS!   and best of luck with 3 little ones.  Fun, excitement, exhaustion all at once.

DD's bouncy seat. Such a great buy, idk what we would do without it! It has a gentle recline, plays lullabies and vibrates. It is perfect for when we need to set her down after she has eaten or to watch some cartoons while we're getting ready in the morning

1.) Swing! U had q graco one that plugged in so it saved a ton of $ for batteries.
2.) Boppy vibration bouncer seat. Must have!
3. Sling! Or a carrier, your going Tp need that, one in the sling, 2 in your arms lol. Or you could do what my aunt did, put one in a sling one way, the other in the other sling the other way, and hold one lol.
Good luck momma! And Congrats! I loved my boppy too, it helped a lot with breast feeding and just holding DD, that way my arm didn't get too tired. :) And of course the stroller, we uses that 24/7 at first, cause the infant seat clicked in.

I've known plenty of people that alternate, not a bad idea at all in my opinion!! Use cloth at home and disposables when you're out and about so you can easily toss them and not have to worry about carrying dirty diapers around with you. I highly recommend Pampers Swaddlers, they are the absolute best if you ask me and we have pretty much tried them all. They are softer, higher quality material, a better fit for baby and we've had maybe one to two "leaks" with them compared to a dozen or more blowouts with huggies

Quoting I-mABeliever:

Thanks! I'm pretty sure we're cloth diapering. :) Do you know where to get inexpensive ones? Or like, how many do you think I would need? And would it be bad to alternate between disposable and cloth? (sorry for ? just wondering. :/)


Quoting pinkiebabii:

I didn't really use any thing to"help" with my son. He liked his jumper a lot when he got older.

My best buy would be his cloth diapers which I seriously recommend for you since you are having three.
