I decided to live with less money & with an older car that did not cost extra for insurance, less clothes/gas/lunches because you are not leaving the house everyday…NO child care expenses… And loss of my income ACTUALLY helped SAVE with OUR TAXES (c:

Laura asks…

What kind of bottles do you use or plan to use when baby gets here?

I was planning to go get more baby gear-and thought I’d buy some bottle…I read some reviews on playtex ventaire drop-ins and reusables…both claimed leaking and terrible gassy bellies.

Also-has anyone bought the Disney Baby Care Center Playard from walmart…is the bassinet safe? Sturdy?

What bottles/playard/diapers do you use?

The Expert answers:

We use pampers swaddlers, everything else, including huggies has leaked for us…
We have a chicco play yard..we looked at a zillion and it was the sturdiest and it had the most padding for baby to lay on, play on later…has wood slats under padding, so it can be washed by removing them, and they are much more supportive than some that i have heard are made out of cardboard…some we looked at you couldn’t machine wash at all, u had to wipe clean…it folds down, fits in a bag and rolls on it’s wheels to travel, has a play bar that you can put over play yard to hang toys from, plus it comes with some, vibrates, plays music, has a nightlight all with remote…the support bars were the sturdiest we could find, it has the bassinet feature, which we are still using and are very comfy with, also has a nice changing station that flips up for use and hangs on side when not being used…will try to post a link at the bottom for it if i can find it….
We use ventaire advanced bottles, they vent through bottom so less air in baby’s milk instead of it coming back in through nipple and creating bubbles in milk…supp to be clinically proven to decrease gas, colic, etc….a few more parts to wash, but easier to get bottles clean bc both ends come off….a lot of ppl say that they leak, but if you put them together right you won’t have a prob….i had to figure it out at first too, now i don’t have leaks and i have not had to replace any bottles or parts….everything must be dry, esp vent, disk…place vent very snugly in disk, carefully putting on bottle and watching to make sure you don’t accidentally move plastic vents parts; these are what make sure it doesn’t leak—now, me, my hub, mom and MIL can all use them without leaks…and again, parts must be DRY….:) my dd loves these, she didn’t take to the avent very well, but the first of these she tried, she took right too them….i have the narrows, but they make them in wide too…..
Ok , my play yard…
They do have it in diff colors too..
