I'm a very uncool mommy.
No really I am....I am completely clueless about the new and popular baby items.
There are three things especially that if I had known about them before hand they would have definitely been on my baby shower wishlists :)
First the Bumbo Baby Sitter
I didn't even know these existed until Christmas time when it seemed every baby EXCEPT Jesse received one as a gift.
These are so freakin cute!
I'm so frustrated that I didn't know, if I had known about these one of the gifts we bought Jesse, would have been replaced by this.
Now clueless item #2
Again if I had known about this product, I would have had this for the day I brought Jesse home from the hospital!!
This is my friends baby....I apologize for the blurriness
But look at how warm and cuddly he looks!
There's all these rules about not wearing snowsuits or thick coats on the baby's in the car seats cause it interferes with the safety belts.
So me being totally uncool & hillbilly, I cart Jesse around in his carseat with uber cool blankets.
One wrapped around him once he's safely strapped in and then a 2nd over the carseat to protect him from the cold & weather.
Again I refuse to buy this one now because Jesse will soon be too big for the infant carseat and I've survived this long I can manage the rest of the winter.
She is a teether....an expensive $22 teether.
But when I found out about her, I did go buy Jesse this one.
Because Jesse is teething and I had a Babies R Us gift card to use :)
Look how much Jesse loves her!
Chew, chew, chew :)
I just wish someone had told me about these things before hand!
For example, the nursing pillow.
I was told by a couple of girlfriends that I NEEDED this item.
And boy were they right...even now I'm still using it.
So in future...mommies please share your knowledge so clueless, uncool mommies like me can be kept in the loop.
I don't buy things just for the sake of being cool, but these items are actually practical!
I already know that if we are blessed with Baby Hann #2 down the road, baby showers or not I'll be buying those items :)
But then again by that time, there'll be new products and I'll be uncool again....geesh!
