    Default BTDTs, finish this sentence: "I couldn't live without my..."

    Just for fun and to help out our new mamas (and make sure I'm not missing out on something great!), what is the one thing you couldn't have lived without during the newborn stage? Add a link to the item if you can!

    I couldn't have lived without my Aden and Anais swaddling blankets. They are the perfect weight, so soft and use-able for everything! They are nice and big so we used them for swaddling, nursing cover when I couldn't find the other one, car seat shade - I don't think I have a picture of DS for the first 4 months without one in the picture somehow! When DS was born they didn't have nearly the prints selection they have now:

    Ok...your turn! What couldn't you live without??

    With Brandon, we couldn't have lived without our swaddlers, in particular, the miracle blanket. Brandon was a baby that loved and needed to be swaddled.

    My nursing pillow the cluster feeding at the beginning makes you feel like you are feeding 24/7. It helped with the arms (and DH used it to hold DD as well).

    I couldn't live without my moby wrap/Ergo (when she was bigger). So nice to have both hands free, and nothing more adorable than Daddy wearing baby!

    Our Playtex drop-in liner bottles. I am not able to BF and it was a huge relief to not be scrubbing out bottles constantly. You do have to wash the nipples but that is the quicker part. We kept all of our bottles for each day lined up and pre-set with liners and filtered water. Then we had little containers that had pre measured formula powder in each one. All you had to do was pour and stir. This was a great relief when you are half asleep and need to get a bottle ready quickly for a screaming little one.

    I, personally, HATED the cans of premade formula. Once the can is opened it has to be refridgerated. Nothing was worse to me then trying to soothe a screaming, hungry baby in one arm while trying to warm cold formula with the other. Especially when you are only half awake. I know that they have the individual bottles of premade formula but those were more expensive than we could afford.

    The vibrating bouncer. I remember sitting on the couch with the bouncer on the floor and dd init. I would bounce it with my foot while it vibrated and she slept great in it. I used it so much I had to trash it when dd was too big.

    Good one on the swaddle blanket, I love those!!

    I would say I couldn't live with out GOOD breast pads!

    When I first started BF'ing with DS1 I used the cheapo crappy ones or the "reuseable" ones but they always leaked, I love the one's made by Johnson's and Lansinoh.
