Sleeping Without a Swaddle?

My son loves to be swaddled, but at 4 months old, he is growing too large for his swaddleme and swaddling with a regular blanket is too loose for his liking.

Newborn at Home Now

If You Had to Do It All over Again, What Would You NOT Buy?

Hi mamas! I have two munchkins that broke the bank - I bought everything "they" said I needed and then some. With the economy the way that it is, is there anything that you bought that you did not need? Or that you thought was a waste of money? My best friend is having her first baby and I am, unfortunately, not the best one to answer this question! On the flip side, was there anything you could not live without? I have my own opinions, but I would love to get as many other opinions as possible, and I know you all wont be shy! Thanks...
