- Pack 'n Play - We have this one and love it. The newborn napper attachment was especially helpful in the beginning because Abby slept in it ALL.THE.TIME. and I very rarely worried about her. Even after she outgrew that portion, she continued to sleep in this in our room until we made the transition to her crib. We liked ours so much that we actually borrowed my SIL's as well so we could keep it upstairs in our bonus room and use it for naps/changings in the early weeks without always having to go downstairs to the nursery. Now that Abby has moved into her crib we haven't used this as much, but I'm sure once she's a little older (and mobile) it will come in handy again.
- Swing - We have this one and it's amazing! She still loves this thing and it's typically used as one of our fool-proof ways to put her to sleep if nothing else seems to work. And, the music/sounds it makes aren't super annoying. My only real issue with it is that I wish there was some way that it could grow with her a little more (i.e. some sort of attachment to the bottom that would make it a little longer). She's only got another inch or so of growing before she's going to be too big for it.
- Bouncy Chair - We have this one and it is a life saver. This thing is sometimes the only thing that allows me to eat dinner at night without having Abby in my lap. She love the animals and will sit and talk to them forever! My only problem with it is that the music doesn't play nearly long enough (maybe 30 seconds at a time) so I feel like I'm constantly reaching over to pull the string again. I'll be very thankful for the day that she learns how to do this on her own!
To all the other mommies out there - what were/are some of your favorite things for 0-3 months?
