Baby Must-Haves

I'd like to share with everyone a few "tools" I've found work wonders on a baby. Goose loves these items, and when baby's happy - Mama's happy!


The first item is the bouncer seat. We have the Fisher Price Safari Animals edition, but I'm sure they all accomplish the same task. I would like to add that this chair was one of the cheaper ones I've seen and it works great, leading me to believe that higher price does not necessarily constitute a better product in this category. Here's the effect this seat has on Goose:


I also really like our swing. This swing is actually my sister-in-law's but her kids have recently outgrown it. Little "d" loves sitting in this! He smiles at the toys and will usually fall asleep. This swing is made by Graco:



And now - for my absolute FAVORITE item - a true miracle. The product is the Fisher Price Rainforest Waterfall Soother. Here's how it works: You install it inside the crib and it plays soothing nature sounds and music while a waterfall lights up with blue falling water and a cute little monkey swings back and forth. It mesmerizes our child and after a few minutes he will usually fall asleep. If he doesn't fall asleep it will at least keep him occupied for a few minutes while I finish up dinner or something to that effect. Fisher Price has a few different versions of this item and I'm sure they are all at least as good as this one:If you don't have at least one of these items you are missing out! Have a great Thursday everyone!

Our swing was the must have item when the kids were babies 20 some years ago, but your items are so much nicer than what I had. Love the crib toy!!!
