What I love about the carrier is that it is so comfortable you can barely feel the weight you’re carrying.
The carseat and stroller are BLACK, which I love, because it’s chic. They are built really well, and the carseat is SO easy to strap in. No hassle at all. The stroller is smooth and handles really well. I have a Graco set, and it was a rickety disappointment. The brand is a little more expensive than your Graco and Chicco brands, but well worth it because you will be able to use it for more than one kid before it falls apart!
If you use bottles, these bags are a must have. They are amazing and easy to use. You simply take apart all the dirty Dr. Brown’s bottles, rinse them off with soap (I like to give everything a quick scrub with the bottle brush for added peace of mind), stick the parts in the bag, add 2 tablespoons of water, and microwave for 2 minutes. The bottles come out steam cleaned and perfectly sterilized. Each bag can be used 20 times. They are great for traveling, too. I buy them in bulk on Amazon.com, though I’m sure you can get them at babies-r-us or anywhere else they sell baby supplies. Medela makes a sterilizer bag as well, and I find they work the same.

If you are like me, you’ve probably never heard of it. Available for purchase are these necklaces made from baltic amber that supposedly have properties to help ease the pain of teething. One website claims the necklaces do the following: •Immune boosting properties •Reduction in teething pain •Calm a baby without resorting to drugs •Anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties •Recognized by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic.
The necklaces aren’t for chewing, the baby is just supposed to wear it, and the chemical reaction between the skin and the amber occurs, thus creating healing properties. Naturally, I was intrigued and ordered one to be rush delivered to my house. I have been having a pretty rough couple weeks with this whole teething thing. I felt weird about wrapping it around her neck, it seemed dangerous, so I opted for making it into an anklet.
It has been 3 days since she started wearing it and I’ve noticed about a 25% improvement in overall mood. That’s about 25% not enough to convince me that it actually works. If you want to try it for yourself, you can order from several different sellers on amazon.com HERE
