Since we've got some fun chatter going on it the discussion about strollers, I thought it might be nice to expand it to baby gear in general! What are some of your favorites? What was your nursery splurge (if you have one)?
I am in love with these burpy bibs by Aden + Anais
. Yes, $22 dollars for 2 bibs, but they are completely worth it. They are super thick and absorbent while also being nice and soft against baby skin. The patterns are pretty yet modern and a bit artsy. And now that she's in baby foods, I can snap it on like a bib and it covers pretty much her entire top half like a smock. Sweet potato baby food spillage? No worries -- it just gets on the bib! And I can confirm that they hold up well in the wash and those bright orange sweet potato stains come out like magic. I actually found these two or three months after my little girl arrived and I've been giving them as baby shower or baby-warming gifts ever since -- to equally rave reviews !
My nursery splurge is going to be this changing basket
(which will convert nicely into a bin for her dresser top when she gets older) -- I just have to wait until September as they are currently back-ordered due to demand.
