This is such a great list and will definitely help me out in the future!!

Brittany Lapinski:

Amazing List – I love how you did an easy to read and a detailed list. I read both. I am going to be a first time mom… I read through your blog and it sounds like me – I think we have the same taste 🙂


I saw you had the Nuna Leaf on your Nordstrom recommendations, do you like the 4moms bounceroo better?


hey ceciley! i DO love both, so much! the nuna is more spendy and i think the bounceroo is a bit easier to transport everywhere. but lyla has loved the nuna leaf every time i’ve put her in it, and i love that anabelle can sit in it too! she lounges in it quite a bit to watch a show in our room while i get ready in the bathroom where i can see her. i love that it’s functional even for a toddler! i’ll have to go back and put my recommendations for both in the post…thanks for leaving this comment!

Laura Malick:

I’m 38 and pregnant with my first and have been a total research nerd/junkie as well lately. I was so excited to come across your site because your list is so helpful and detailed and has ALL of the big items that I was leaning towards but still needed to check out more (like the infant seat, stroller, bouncers, etc.). It makes me feel more confident in my decisions on what to go with and I love that we have the same taste! Thanks for your very helpful article (and the condensed list for easy reference later!) can’t wait to check out the rest of your site!


Oh Laura I’m so glad this was helpful!! Thank you for your sweet comment! XO
