    Default Baby products you might be wondering about (q&a thread)

    There are some new to me things I am wondering about:

    4 piece bumpers for cribs. This seems like a great idea for washing, toddler beds converted from a crib, or cribs like mine that have one solid side. Rather than one long piece, there are 4 separate ones. Amazon has them if you want to see them.

    Muslin blanket/wraps/swaddlers. Aden & Anais is a popular brand. Very large, thin cotton pieces that are lightweight and dry quickly. Seems like a good idea for swaddling without overheating. Also good for breastfeeding cover/stroller cover and more.

    Baby legs. Like lleg warmers for babies, can be used instead of pants for easier diaper changes or to cover knees when crawling. I think these are really cute, but are they practical/useful?

    Anyone have experience with these items, or an opinion? Please add your own items you want to know about, maybe someone has tried them and can offer advice.

    the muslin sounds awesome! I would probably just by muslin from a fabric store and cut it myself... but that's a great idea for a summer baby (especially in the middle east!!)
    I love babylegs! I don't usually use them for newborns, but by 6 months they start to come in really handy. In winter you can add them under clothes, and esp with girls, it makes it easier to put her in a dress and still keep her legs warm! also around the house having baby in a onesie and babylegs makes diaper changes easier. and the company is awesome! I got a free pair at a babywearing event in NYC when I was pg with DD (6+ years ago) and I put them on DS cuz his skin was always so dry, so I would put on lotion and then pull on the "baby-neggies" as he called them! His skin cleared up sooo quickly! so I wrote to them and they sent me like 7 more pairs for free!! I'm a big fan of babylegs!

    Thanks Ayelet! I like the idea of baby legs as another layer in the winter. I think I will definitely keep my eyes open for a good deal on some.

    I love the muslin blankets. I used them for swaddling, carseat/carrier shade cover, and BFing.
