Now that you are parents, what is the one gift or item you have gotten that you would advise all parents to get???
We have been asked this question a bunch of times and, in truth, we have gotten so many amazing gifts. We got a video monitor that gives us comfort at night and is an item we cannot live without. The electric swing is a great place for relaxing him. He loves his play mat. Our friends were extremely generous with clothing (including an amazing friend who shipped many boxes of the cutest hand-me-downs ever). We were even given an awesome piggy bank. But, if I had to pick one item that is far and away more vital than any other item it is the soothie (as pictured above). The soothie is a special type of pacifier that our baby loves. The soothie allows you to stick your finger with the pacifier in your baby’s mouth and the design is brilliant. We tried a regular pacifier and our baby reacted like I put dog food in his mouth. Somehow the soothie can turn an extreme freak out into a relaxing moment. It works so well that I think they should change the name from “soothie” to “Baby Xanax”.
