I don't see the need in bottle warmers, i don't even know what drying racks are, I'm about to look them up. What about putting sippy cups and spoons on the registry. Seems like things to buy later.

    We use our bottle drying rack all the time, we use it for the pump parts. I have never used a bottle warmer though.

    So I'm seeing the steralizers, how many of you use one or do you boil the bottles and pump parts? Could you just use that and leave the bottles in until they are dry?

    Sterilizers are a waste because the item are only sterilize for about 30 seconds after you sterilize them. So basically it just adds an extra step into your wash routine that is pointless.

    I don't boil anything either, I just boil them the first time I get them and then after that I just wash with soap and hot water.

      Didn't think of it like that. I just thought bottles need to be sterile after being washed.

        Check out those foam pads that go in the sink, they are really cool. http://www.bloomingbath.com/

        I never thought the baby tubs worked well. My babies always slipped down anyway.

        I just take a bath with my baby, easiest and safest way for me. But when they are really little I always use the sink.

          No to the bottle warmer most of them die in a few months anyway... Drying rack we used them for the first month and a half... now I just wash his bottle after every feeding so I dont get a ton of bottles in the sink and have to spend all that time washing bottles before bed time. LOTS of BIBS you will use them a lot... and different size diapers.. 1,2,3, ect cause your going to need them. Think for when your little one is older what your going to need, when they are "new" you dont need much but jammies diapers bibs and bottles. OH and wipes!

          You can never have too many wipes! I suggest trying out a few different brands and find your favorite.

          I was thinking of things I would need in the first few months not as they get older.

              You ladies are such life savers and stress relievers. I have been stressing about all these gadgets. When I just really want it to be simple and in expensive!

                I don't know if this is okay to say, but i wish I lived back when moms used a dresser draw to put sleeping babies in. It just seems logical to me and much easier than a bulky item that will be used for a few months.
