I so clearly remember going to the big chain baby store and reading books on all the things I wuld neeD to bring home my baby including seats, saucers and bouncers galore. But what I rlize now, is that those items are all "buckets" so to speak that only serve to contain babies and create bucket babies who do not explore their world naturally through movement. With that said, there were a few Items I found I could not live without. The first was swaddling blankets. Splurge on the big ones! Swaddling was unbelievable for my kids! A GREAT carrier for baby wearing was the ultimate a life saver for us as well. We found having a really good feeding seat was important. It is not always the pretty one. And the best gift - DIAPERS - of all sizes
