bellarose606 :  haha. A wet bag is something you put yucky stuff inside while you’re out so it doesn’t make the rest of your diaper bag wet. So maybe a wet bathing suit or in my case, pukey cloths etc. 🙂

We ordered a glider from Bed, Bath and Beyond. They had 2 styles and you could select the fabric/colors. It’s the Best Chairs brand. It was best price we found that included an ottoman… and super comfortable! I can’t remember how much, but MUCH cheaper than going to a furniture store.

They said it would take 4 months to come in, but it actually only took a couple. I think we ordered it in September or October, and knew it would come in sometime in January (baby was due in December). But, it ended up coming before Thanksgiving… 3 days before my son was born 3 weeks early.

We really like it for his room.

bellarose606 :  a lot of these things are just a personal choice, and you might not know what you prefer using until you try something.  Grooming kit I don’t think is really a big decision, we got one that had a little brush, comb, nail clipper and scissors, and maybe a couple other things we never used.  We are still using the clippers and used the little brush until almost a year, but if your baby has a lot of hair right away you probably won’t use it that long.  We use a forehead thermometer that seems to be really consistent, so we like it.  We do also have just a simple, basic thermometer we use for rectal temps occasionally.  It’s nice to have at first to double check whatever other thermometer you’re using.  When those babies are so tiny fevers can be really dangerous, so I liked to double-check rectally until I was confident that our forehead one was consistent.  Rectal temps aren’t fun, but it’s just one of those mom things that you have to do.  🙂

As far as I know, all carseats come with pads for the straps so I don’t see why you’d need additional unless you wanted cutesy ones.  We needed a thick carseat cover because we live in a very cold climate, but if you live somewhere warm you probably don’t need anything.  I had an apron-style nursing cover that my cousin made for me but only used it a few times because I ended up not being a nurse-in-public type if at all possible, even with a cover.  That’s totally personal choice though!  I like the look of the cute infinity scarf-style ones though.  I think I might’ve used that more often.

bellarose606 :  definitely recommend the car seat covers. In the winter, we had a bunting bag type to keep the baby zipped up and warm. I also got a “carseat canopy” to block out the sun/rain/indoor lights that I loved. That one is more like a blanket with handles that hang on the handle of your bucket carseat.

Jumping in here… but regarding a nursing scarf… I thought that those would be fantastic, but it turns out that they are super annoying to wrangle whilst your young infant is screaming for food.  By the time my baby was easier to nurse the pattern on the scarf would distract her from eating. So, it was a nice idea in theory, but useless in practice.  I find it much easier to use a muslim swaddle blanket over my shoulder instead (and make sure to get a couple that aren’t patterned).  You can always tie the ends together and make it more scarf-like.
