We are going minimalistic with this baby and have so much already saved from DS or secondhand, but I do have friends asking me about what we would like/need. Besides little things like bottle nipples, etc. the answer is "not much."
I've been considering muslin blankets because everyone I know who gets them RAVES about them. But I'm really hung up on the price tag. I know someone wouldn't buy $4 blankets for $50 (I'm talking the Aden + Anais) if they couldn't afford to, but I feel awkward/greedy asking for something so expensive, given that this is kiddo #3.
We already have 2 Miracle blankets we'll be using for swaddling for sleep, so I have some questions:
1) What other uses are there for these muslin swaddling blankets? (this baby WILL be born in July, though, in So Cal, so maybe they'll come in more handy than the MB due to the heat)
2) Has anyone tried any of the "off brands" (I see so many others make them now!) and are they just as good?
