New baby stuff for the new baby!

I feel like I live at Babies R Us… I’m there way too often, haha. Recently, we’ve been visiting the Toys R Us side for Ryan, which is just so exciting! But today I went back over to the baby side to browse around.

Ryan needed a new toothbrush–he threw his in the trash can and as much as he whined about having it back, I said nuh-uh, no way. I picked up some more spoons for him, too.

Then I stopped at the Playtex feeding section for some baby supplies. Babies R Us has an entire wall of bottles, nipples, pacifiers, etc. and it’s easily organized by brand. I went with one bottle to start because some babies are picky about the bottles they take so I wouldn’t want to get stuff with a whole set! Has anyone ever tried the Playtex “drop-ins?”

I bought some nipples that match those drop-in bottles in medium flow because I think those get used the longest. Then I grabbed some Playtex pacifiers, which came in a 2-pack with a nice little pacifier case.

As I walked out of this front section of the store, I was greeted by a sales associate that asked if I was finding everyone okay. This time, yes. But when I was pregnant with Ryan and new to Babies R Us? OMG. The place was scary. There’s a million different kinds of everything, what do I need, which kind is best, what don’t I need?!?!

There’s a big desk right up front where you can get answers to all these questions. They help you find products, get registries, and even create your own registry. When Steve and I created ours, they walked around the store with us as much as we needed them to–so we could figure out and find what we needed and wanted! It was a huge, HUGE help.

We have the Babies R Us credit card and rewards card and I love getting those $$$ off cards in the mail πŸ˜‰ It usually means Ryan gets some new cute pajamas. I’m a sucker for PJs!

How cute for Ryan?! But they didn’t have his size πŸ™ So I went to Target across the street and found a $5 “Best big brother ever” long-sleeve shirt πŸ™‚ I checked out the Babies R Us furniture and found a white crib and dresser set that had espresso edgings–so cute! I can’t wait to find out if this baby is a boy or a girl. There will be SO MUCH shopping to do if it’s a girl πŸ˜‰

  • I LOVE Babies R Us! Love that shirt too! I’ve never tried the drop ins before but I wouldn’t be against it, especially if it made clean up easier!

    I wasn’t so smart the frist time around – bought an entire set of bottles before baby was born. They didn’t work. Bought another entire set. They didn’t work – you get the picture… too bad I didn’t. The drop-ins were the 5th set of bottles I bought and the last. I only wish they’d been the first. I BF my daughter for 14.5 months, but had to go back to work when she was 3 months old. So I wanted something that wouldn’t cause nipple confusion (I was terrifed she’d refuse to nurse) and wouldn’t be preferred to nursing. Anyway, drop-ins were wonderful for us. No confusion, super easy to clean, and cheap. We did have 1 episode where Grandma tossed the bottle in her purse and it leaked beastmilk everywhere – but you can blame that on user error – I hadn’t put the liner in right.

    I would actually recommend the slow-flow nipples if you are going to be BFing. My daughter took a bottle at daycare until her first bday. We never made it past the slow flow nipples. As she got older, the slow flow nipples required her to work for her milk, just like they have to do when BFing. Also, if you plan to use the bottle for a newborn/younger infant, get the 4oz size. If you have 4oz or less in the 8/10oz size, it’s a pain to get the air out.

    My first would never take a bottle but I only tried one brand since I was home to nurse him anyways. I would really like to get my second to take a bottle so I can go out sometimes without him though. I will have to take a look at those playtex ones. I have also heard good things about Tommie Tippy but those are expensive.
