As new parents we found it hard to decide what we needed for Rosie. Most of my pregnancy was spent researching products and deciding what to buy. I came across quite a few posts that would list items but not say why they were useful. So here I am making my own little post sharing why we loved these items. If you have any more suggestions, please leave them in the comments below. I would love to hear what worked for you too!
When we came home with Rosie, we camped out in our living room with this Pack N Play. When looking for things for her to sleep in, we wanted something that was easy to move and practical. We liked this Graco Pack N Play with the napper as the bassinet flipped over into a little reclined seat. My thought was that if she didn’t like napping in one of the options, there were 2 more to try! Over time, she progressed from napping in the bassinet to sleeping on the big mattress underneath. I think this was great for us to use to transition her into her own bedroom crib. Another well used feature was the changing mat. We could get all of our supplies in the pockets at the side and the mat itself was completely waterproof, which we were glad of multiple times!
