What is the one item I'm excited to buy for the baby? Hmm I want to buy a Bella Band - it sounds so comfortable but I'm not necessarily excited about it. Baby clothes? Not yet, besides that's more than one thing. Carseat, crib, basinette? Nope. I'm excited to pick out a Diaper Bag! I love purses! And organizing and compartments. For a loooong time, even when I wasn't even close to considering babies, I knew what I wanted (if by chance I ever had a baby) - One that looked like a purse I would carry because darn it I am carrying it! No freakin' quilted teddy bear print balloons and hearts. Not my thing. Okay for others and honestly it's fine for the babies room and clothes and what not. But pleeeease I love purses and want to love carrying it around.
What do you mothers think of this: My sister recommended a particular brand of nursing pads with the best absorption. However... I've heard of ones you can knit. Effective? or *gasp* itchy?
