6 of my favorite baby items!

So you have baby no. 1. You and your spouse are thrilled and of course you only want the best for your baby, so you go out and you get the most expensive stroller and most expensive car seat the market has to offer. Then you have baby no. 2 and you realize, dang, we need another car seat, so you grab a Safety First car seat and perhaps a double stroller so that you can push around both baby no. 1 and no. 2. Then baby no. 3 comes along and you’re like, crap!!! Car seats expire!!! So you have to get all new car seats for all three babies! (We have every single kind of car seat in our van. We have the booster with back rest, we have the forward facing convertible 3 in 1 and we have a rear facing infant car seat.) And you perhaps grab another stroller because baby no. 1 and no. 2 made the first stroller all dirty and worn out. Lol! This was us.

What I’m trying to get at is after we had baby no. 3 we had to get a lot of new things firstly because things expired, secondly because things got old and worn out and thirdly because it’s just nice to have new stuff! I buy a mixture of cheap things and more expensive things. Sometimes you just can’t settle for something similar. When I try buying the inexpensive one, I end up wasting money because I go out and buy the one I originally wanted anyways. But I also believe that you don’t always need to spend a ton of cash to get things that work well.

  1. Emily these are all very impressive products. I went through 4 babies but I never saw a travel system before. I guess things are much more high tech nowadays. My babies are all grown now. These products can certainly make your life much easier. Thanks for joining us over at Sweet Inspiration.
