Hah, I know someone who bought that stroller! She loves juicy and it suits her perfectly – although I don’t think her fiance is thrilled that their son is blinged out in so much pink, hahaha…

Here is my baby gear dream list:

Coach diaper bag

Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller (I did infant respite care during school – one of the families had this stroller, and it was the best stroller of any that I used – The bassinet was awesome for when the little guy was a newborn – and you can get a stand to use the bassinet in the bedroom at night – I love it and will find a way to get one)

 

Angelcare Monitor (we recommend this to parents of premature babies, because they are more prone to “forgetting” to breathe)

Those are very cute! If you’re planning on having more than one kid, you might want to go neutral though. My favorite color is pink so I’ve always dreamt of pink everything if I had a girl. And then I saw a little boy in his big sister’s hot pink stroller, obviously a hand me down. I figure I’ll just accessorize everything with pink.

@artbee: I am with you – I am going to buy neutral for all the major items (particularly because me and Darling Husband will not find out gender until delivery). I like my blacks, greys, browns, and creams anyways … so not a big deal for me!

@Ms Mini: We have the Angelcare Monitor.  Got it at a garage sale for $10!  It’s amazing what you buy at like 1/10 the price.  I’d totally recommend it.  My cousin died of SIDS and so I’m a little paranoid.  But when that’s on I feel so much more comfortable putting MB down for a nap!

We also got a Baby Bjorn (same garage sale) for $20.  I think that’s a must buy too.

@MightySapphire: That is a great price! I will definitely be checking garage sales/online classifieds when the time comes for accessories like carriers, monitors etc. I have a very generous family, who are a bunch of designer/brand loving people, so I can imagine that a lot of the major things will be gifted (LOL)

We use a metro-wrap at work for babies that are very fussy and need to be held all the time (ie drug withdrawl babies) and now that I am comfortable tying it I love it, I will be wanting one of those in the future.

@artbee: We neutralized all our big items.  Browns and greens (I love the color green!).  But I will be so pissed if my next baby is a girl…because I could have gotten all the cute pink ruffly stuff!

@Ms Mini: I’m looking at the Metrowrap.  Is that just basically a Mobi wrap with a design printed on it?  If so, I have a similar version, the LoveyDuds wrap.  LOVE IT.  My Darling Husband even wears it (at home) to hold MB all day because she hates to be put down right now.  So he sets her in it and plays video games, lol.  There’s a few versions of that type of wrap, and mostly the only difference is the bias in the fabric.

@MightySapphire: Metrowrap is like a moby wrap, except for (from what I hear) the metrowrap is a bit softer/more from-fitting. But I just use the metrowrap that was donated to the NICU so I don’t have a basis for comparison really. The one we had donated is black without any design on it.
