We bought a bottle warmer and used it, literally, one time. I just gave it away to a pregnant friend, and I am so glad to have it out of our house!  Useless, imo; it is so much faster to just make a fresh bottle with hot water out of the sink.

I also gave away some of the stuff my mom bought (shhh, don’t tell her!).  All good intentions, but I never used them:

  • bottle warmer for the car (it plugs into the cigarette lighter)
  • sun shade to attach to the car window (our car seat has it’s own shade attached)
  • this baby food container/spoon (cute idea, but it’s easier to just take a jar of baby food and a regular spoon)
  • cloth bibs (we got this Baby Bjorn soft plastic bib a while back; I’ll never use another cloth bib again!)

@Mrs. Spring: I heard cloth bibs are good for drool and things like that when the baby is an infant, but plastic are better for when food is introduced. Is that wrong?

@artbee:  I think it’s personal preference.  I never used cloth bibs for drool because I’d be changing to a fresh bib every 15 minutes anyway (when they’re in the drooling stage, they drool A LOT).  So I just wiped her mouth often or tucked a burb cloth into her shirt if we were going on a car ride, which was easier for me.  I only used cloth bibs for food, and for that, a plastic bib is much better.

Oh on a random side note about the wipes warmer.I heard that they dry out the wipes anyways.

I think so many things are just personal preference, for instance, I think our Diaper genie works great. Even at 9 months old we don’t have a problem with diaper smells. 

I have friends in Minnesota that use a diaper warmer in the winter because their house is always very cold. 

I only like cloth bibs because if use plastic ones then he gets his hands in the food as it falls and smears it all over the place. 

Unfortunately with babies you just have to try out different things and see what works for you and your little one.

Fiance and i registered for a backmassager chair thing….its less than 100 but if we  both worked and needed massages, well at least we both would get one without the other working for it. haha

I got about 50 (no joke) cloth bibs, a wipe warmer and a bottle warmer from my baby showers…I wonder if I’ll use them!? haha

@Mrs.Spring that bib looks awesome! is it easy to clean the food out of the bottom? I’ve seen the ones that velcro so you can open it and wipe it out

@Sulli301:  Yeah,  I just dump out the little catch-all in the garbage and then rinse the whole bib off in the sink.  Super easy!
