The Robeez are for kids learning how to walk. Kids shouldn’t be in shoes with a solid bottom until they are totally walking because of their bone development or something. So yes, they are generally worn inside.

I’ve also used a Bugaboo Bee and LOVED it. Maneauvered very well and it seemed to be able to fit a ton of stuff in the storage basket under the seat (important to me lol) It is expensive though and I’m sure there are comparible strollers out there I just haven’t used anything other than this one and the Maclarens.

@Sulli – full disclosure – from my friend, who owns the store I linked to above. I have the charcoal gray bag, and you never could tell that it’s supposed to be a diaper bag.

I am not pregnant yet, but for some reason I am REALLY excited to buy a diaper bag!  I can’t explain why!  What are the best (most useful) features to look for?

Things I loved were my soothing sounds swing, the boppy, bouncy chairs, the premeasured container for formula that you could just throw in the diaper bag, and kirland diapers.

I thought the diaper genie was a waste and SO disgusting.  I liked the pack n play, but NEVER used it.

It’s been 6 years since I had a baby, I’ll have to think more about this for those of you making lists.

Here’s a random “baby stuff” question:  Are you actually supposed to register for stuff like baby clothes and diapers?  I thought people just bought you those items anyway, but the all the registry checklists I’ve seen include registering for clothes and diapers…

Hmmm, good question.  I found that with friends who have had kids, they have registered for other baby product, but received a ton of clothes instead.

i registered for diapers + wipes. i also registerd for the kimono style newborn clothes since that’s what i think is most practical. i may end up taking the clothes off though because my sil is giving us clothes from her daughter who is now 2+ years old and was born about the same time our little one is due.

Anyone else planning to cloth diaper, or am I the only crazy???  If you have or are, do you have a recommendation for where we should start looking for good cloth diaper supplies?

Thanks!

DG- there is a great site called Pregosaur that I recommend checking out. There are bloggers like here on weddingbee (no boards though) but if you scroll down to hot topics and click on cloth diapers there are a couple really good recent posts on the subject. I’ve been thinking about going this direction as well.

It seems like it is economical, environmentally friendly and good for baby’s skin.  Win, win, win…

Thanks for the link.  I’ll go check it out!

I agree… and cloth diapers have come a long way since we were kids! The new fancy ones look like they will actually hold the poo and pee… always a good thing.

This is all great info!

I haven’t had the baby yet but one thing I can comment on so far is the snoogle (preggie full body pillow) some people have a love/hate relationship with this product and I have only had it 3 days but I LOVE it! It is so comfortable for me. When I need to flip sides, I don’t flip the snoogle. I actually just turn myself in the middle of the snoogle. I don’t have a problem with this because it allows me to lay different ways.

The Good:  Smile

Lansinoh nipple cream

Swing!!!!!

Boppy

Pack n Play – I use the main area to store baby stuff downstairs and having a changing table and baby accessories downstairs so I don’t have to go up stairs is awesome!

The Ultimate Baby Wrap.  http://www.parentsofinvention.com/ubw-product.htm

Soothies – We still haven’t found the perfect pacifier but she does like this one

BundleMe (carseat cover)

Ameda Purely Yours Breast pump

Vics rectal thermometer (it has a short tip for safety)

kiddopotamus Swaddle Blanket

Bumbo seat

Large recieving blankets (most of the ones I got were smalll and hard to swaddle with)

The Bad:  Frown

Mylacon drops (they dont seem to do anything for her)

Baby Bathtub (kitchen sink is so much easier!!)

 

…And I can’t forget my netbook.  It has made my marathon breastfeeding managable.  I’m confined to the couch for hours with no adult contact so weddingbee and facebook are keeping me sane!

I’m planning to use cloith diapers, Mrs. DG!  I am still looking into which ones exactly, but I was given a big bag of prefold diapers from a friend who used those with a simple wrap cover, and she said it wasn’t hard at all.  I think that we will probably use 7th generation or something at night though since the cotton prefolds don’t wick the moisture away.  Friend said that she was adamant about using cloth only and was up 4X/night for a year!  No way I can do that and be functional.  Bun Genius gets great reviews, but they’re a little pricey.  I’ll post what I find/decide, though!
