1. the Britax B-Agile Travel System. The more Natalie grows, the more we go out and do things. This travel system is AMAZING. It is so easy to use and it really helps me to feel confident taking Natalie out and doing things by myself. The car seat clicks into the base and you hear it click giving you the comfort of knowing that it really is in place. It is so easy to put into the base and remove. Then comes the stroller. It really is so simple. You can set it up and take it down so easily and again the car seat just clicks into place and you're ready to go. Once Natalie grows out of her infant car seat, the stroller is ready for the next chapter of her life. I am absolutely obsessed.
2. the blooming bath flower. When we brought Natalie home she was so small. Ok, she was so small to us but in reality, she was quite a large baby. The blooming flower made bath time so easy. We just put it in the sink, put her in the flower and then give her a bath. The flower is soft but cushioned so she is safe and secure and I am not worried about her bumping her head on the hard sink. At the end of the bath, we ring it out and hang it up to dry. It really is that simple. Natalie loves bath time and the comfort and security provided by the blooming bath really helps us to enjoy bath time too.
3. the Motorola Digital Video Baby Monitor. When we first got the monitor, Brandon and I played with it for hours. It has two-way communication which allows you to talk to your crying baby... or talk to your husband who is putting things together in the nursery. The picture quality on this thing is top notch. It has really made the (very slow) transition of Natalie sleeping in her own room much easier for Brandon and me. I love love love this monitor.
5. the Boppy. Now that Natalie is starting to sit up, the Boppy is definitely coming in handy. We can prop her up in the Boppy and she can really practice sitting on her own. Natalie is really starting to develop great head control and the Boppy allows us to work with her. It is also really great for tummy time. We can lay her on her belly with her chest on the Boppy and she will prop herself up. She is already so strong. It's so impressive. I also like to lay her on her back snuggled into the Boppy so that we can work on her reaching and grabbing. She is learning so quickly and I feel like every day she is doing more. I am one proud mama.
