When we started Asher on bottles I was just using the Medela ones that came with my pump. We were having trouble with gas so Dr Austman suggested the Dr Brown's bottles and I LOVED them!
This is probably one of the best gifts I received! This timer keeps track of everything: Feedings, sleep, diaper changes - it has a place to tell you which side you last nursed on and a handy built in flashlight.
I tried several different kinds when I had Asher and these were by far my favorite.
When Dustin wanted one of these I thought he was crazy. After all, Asher was just going to be in the next room - but it ended up being one of my favorite things! I think I slept with it hooked to the TV in our room the whole first week Asher went into his room. We also used it when we transitioned into a toddler bed to see what he was doing in there.
OMG. I honestly can't believe that I paid $32 for this lil gown for Brudder but if you felt it you would know why. A few weeks ago we were in Von Maur looking for a going home outfit and I saw this. I thought it was ugly but I just HAD to touch it. It is soooo soft. After snuggling it a little more the beginning of this week I got online and ordered the $46 receiving blanket to match. I just kept telling myself that I could splurge because I didn't have to buy much for our second lil boy. The blanket arrived yesterday - totally worth the money!
