Starting over and Needing Baby Gear Advice

We are expecting our second child in August and my oldest is 10 so it has been a while since we have been down this road. I have lots of questions about baby gear and the most important being bottle feeding systems. Hopefully I will be breastfeeding for as long as I can so I would like to know what kind of bottles everyone likes to use for a breastfed baby? What are some good breastpumps for large breasted women? We bought and used a medela the first time and I guess I just didn't make enough milk to express all though at the time I...

Car Seat Recommendations - 2Nd Car Seat

My son is 6 months old and already over 20 lbs and therefore outgrowing his 1st car seat/carrier. So I'm starting to look into getting him a new car seat. I know he needs to be rear facing for another 6 months, but how do I choose what kind of car seat to buy? I've seen some that are a 3 in 1 model that wouild likely last the rest of his car seet/booster days. The one I found like that is quite expensive though . . . is it worth it? Does anyone have any recommendations? I'm a new mom, so any help is appreciated! Thanks!

Suggestions for Clothing Brands for Big Baby

My 10-month old is very big (31 lbs, over 32" tall). I'm having trouble finding pajamas to fit him. Many pjs are made to fit snug for safety purposes and are very tight on my son's arms and legs. I'd like to find cotton sleepers with feet, because he has mild eczema and scratches his feet. Does anyone have suggestions for brands of clothing that are roomy?

Infant Sleeping in Parents' Bed

Quick question for moms out there who slept with their newborn/infant. What worked for you in terms of keeping baby safe while sleeping in your bed? Did you use an infant positioner? Did baby just lay next to you on top of your covers? I'm hoping for some advice on this. Also, how did you keep your baby warm/cool enough when sleeping with you? Thanks!

Mommy and Baby Products

I just had a quick question. I have several family members who are going to be having babies here really soon. I have my ideas of what to get them but I am requesting others ideas. So my questions are if you were given a mommy and bay basket at he hospital what products or things would you just want to have in it? Also what item or product could you absolutely not live without with a newborn? What item or product that you did not want at all? Thanks a head of time for the input I appreciate it. Aloha M.
