Favorite Baby Gear

Another birthday week post! Since I know several people who will be having babies soon and might need some recommendations on what pieces of baby gear we used.

We love our Chicco Key Fit Travel System--I know a lot of people are down on travel systems but I think it is the way to go. The stroller is the highest handles we found so we aren't stooping over to walk with the stroller. It is easy to open one handed and although it takes up room in our Prius, we have plenty of space for suitcases, groceries, etc. And Elle still fits in the infant seat! We also bought a jogger from a friend, which we use for 5Ks and hikes and stuff but it is not as good as the Chicco in my opinion.

The Bumbo chair was one of the best things we bought. I even bought it at a second hand store so we saved some. Elle wanted to sit up but needed support so this worked well. We could put her on the table while we ate and she could see everyone and she could sit up and play.Bumbo Baby Sitter - Lilac - Bumbo  - Babies"R"Us
We were really lucky that Elle loved the swing. She spent many hours in it and even napped in it at the beginning. The reason we chose this one is because it plugged in, so we could leave it on for hours! Fisher Price iGlide--it even has 2 modes--swinging and gliding.

This high chair, the Fisher Price Space Saver. We have a pub style table and there aren't high chairs that tall. Plus this is easy to clean and put away if we need to. It is comfortable for Elle.

We did have a bouncer seat for her when she was little, I used it mostly when I was in the shower but Elle didn't care for it much.
