Update: Another one day sale at USA Baby and the mat is taken care of!
This is an example of me and money. So it would be nice to have a play mat and gym for Ollie. Among other things, there is no carpeting in our entire house. He needs something cushy to lie on when he's lying on his stomach (4 times for 5 minutes a time) so his head doesn't become flat.
There are tons and tons out there, ranging in price.
Which one do I like best?
It's not even intentional people. It's like... in a room full of things without price tags, I will find the most costly and like it best.
Update: Ok, thanks to some lovely presents from some lovely people (Ollie's grandmas and Sandy, to name names), as well as some shopping on our own part, Ollie no longer needs the following things. Thanks for the lovely presents!!
We need a baby bathtub. Apparently the kind with mesh slings on the inside are good for suspending your baby in place. After that, I really couldn't care less. We need a changing pad with a buckle to keep the thing from plunging over the side (they frown on that). I don't care what kind either. Apparently we need a cover to go on the changing pad, and it would be nice if it went with the room (see above bedding). It's likely we could use an extra crib sheet or 2. White or light blue would be fine. And then I guess you need burp cloths? My friend Shannon seems to have a variety of cloth around for draping over yourself so Fiona (the baby) doesn't throw up on you. I'm not particular on those either, so long as they are not pastel nor have geese or bears or chicks or whatever. And blankets. I guess it needs a blanket or two, considering it will be born in December.
Can anyone explain to me the difference between a "receiving blanket" and a non "receiving blanket?"
These are cute:
and found at Target.
There was another one, at the store we saw this and it was incredibly soft and comfy. Soft and comfy seems good.
Oh, and apparently some kind of carrier or sling to tote it around in is supposed to be handy.
