Baby Gear You Can't Live Without

Hi Moms! I was wondering what are some baby gear items that you can't live without or just make life easier? My cousin (who is more my sister than anything, her parents took me in when I was younger, and we are super close)is having her first child in August, and he will be a boy.

Swaddlegate - the Unswaddling of My 4 Month Old

My baby will turn 4 months in a week. For the past 3 weeks, he's been busting out of every swaddle we have tried for him. The miracle blanket, the Snug and Tug, the Kiddapotamus, etc. He doesn't bust out of it necessarily, but he figures out a way to wiggle one or both arms out. When he was 3 months old, we tried unswaddling him for several nights and he was completely overtired because his startle reflex would usually keep him awake.

What to Do with My 1 Month Old

I have a 5 week old son who doesn't like to be put down but we can't live like that. I try the play mat and he cries, I try his chair and that lasts 5 min, same as his swing. He will only go in the chair & swing when he wants to fall asleep, any awake time he likes mommy or daddy to hold him. any suggestions on what to do with my 1 month old would be great.
