As a new mom, the options are limitless when it comes to baby gear. When I was pregnant with Bryson, I made the decision to buy most of our major gear in gender-neutral prints so I could reuse them with any other future babies. Now that we are expecting baby #3, I know what works and is worth the money and which items are best left on the shelf. It’s hard to believe it’s been 5 years ago since I purchased our first pieces of baby gear for Bryson. A few of my favorite products that have lasted are from Fisher Price. We used both the Fisher Price Rainforest Open-Top Cradle Swing and Rainforest Deluxe Gym with Bryson and then with Bella and plan to bring them out again with Brynlee. Products that last through two babies and are ready for the third? That’s Fisher Price.
As a new mom, a swing was one of my most used pieces of baby gear. In fact, the first picture I ever shared of Bella on this blog was of her in our Fisher Price Swing. She was and still is a mama’s girl so those few minutes in the swing were my only break until Justin got home from work in the evenings. This sparked a great discussion on my Facebook page about the most used gear in those early newborn days. A swing and a Rock ‘n Play were some of the pieces everyone mentioned! Another commonly used product and one of my favorites is a bouncer. We have several bouncers and I keep them at the grandparents house too.
I am totally loving the new SnugBear line from Fisher Price that’s available exclusively at Walmart. It’s gender neutral and looks so comfortable for baby that I wish I needed new gear. While I have a swing and bouncer already, I am going to purchase the SnugaBear Rock ‘n Play Sleeper for Brynlee. It’s the one piece of baby gear that I don’t already own and have heard so many great things about. I’ve mentioned before that neither Bryson or Bella slept well and so many moms have told me that their babies would only sleep in the Fisher Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper so I am going to give it a try this time around.
Save on SnugaBear
For a limited time, Walmart will be offering a $20 Walmart eGift Card with the purchase of either the SnugaBear Rock N’ Play Sleeper or the SnugaBear Bouncer! That knocks the price of Rock ‘N Play Sleeper down to $44.88 and the Bouncer down to $34.88 after you receive your gift card. I’ve looked and you will not beat those prices. This eGift Card offer is available exclusively at Walmart.com today and let Fisher Price prepare mom-to-be for every stage!

I always recommend a good baby carrier! I love wraps for newborns and soft structured carriers once baby gets a bit bigger!
annnnnd I now long for another 🙂
Okay – A) Your munchkin is SO cute. B) LOVE Fisher price and I love how soft and compact the snugabear is.
We absolutely love Fisher Price, always have! Growing up most of my toys were Fisher Price and I still have some of them today! I also really like the new Fisher Price SnugaBear line. Such quality stuff for my baby!
Fisher Price is a fave brand for us. SO many things we’ve had and passed along after 3 kids that were FP.
Snugabear is darling. I love the pattern!
A baby carrier is a must have!
I love the Fisher Price products too. The Snugabear definitely looks like it would be comfy for a baby. I
M absolutely loved her Fisher Price Swing – I’m sure our next baby will love it too! So many people told me a swing wasn’t necessary but she really enjoyed it!
This sounds so nice!
Fisher Price products are awesome! We had the Ocean Wonders Swing it was a life saver and the kids all loved it when they were babies!
[…] month, we talked about our most used baby gear during those newborn days. It’s no surprise that most moms named at least once Fisher-Price […]
