Baby gear - what's something you never thought you'd want/need, but now can't live without?
as some of you know, baby carl669 (aka Kirin) was born about 7 weeks early. he's still in the hospital, and doing great! they think he will be coming home soon (2 weeks earlier than we expected...damned overachiever).
so, we've already gone out and bought all the typical baby stuff (car seat, diapers, wipes, bottles, blankets, clothes etc.). what i want to know is, when my fellow wootizens had kids, is there something you never thought you'd ever want or need, but you now consider it to be the bee's knees?
it doesn't have to be anything fancy or even store bought. maybe you made a simple little contraption. maybe you just tied a pacifier to a an RC car to help get the baby crawling. so, divulge your secrets my internet friends and you shall be well rewarded! (by karma, not me...unless it's such an awesomely awesome idea)
