I started a Pinterest page as I was baby gear shopping for Jeremiah just about two years ago. It was a great way to see recommended items (by friends and Amazon reviews) and a way to keep track of the best places to shop for it all.
Since I started my board, I noticed that a few of the items I put on there get re-pinned VERY frequently, so I thought I’d share some of my most popular pins with you today!
Coming in at number five: Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump . This is a great pump, and I love that it fits with Dr. Brown’s Bottles. I definitely got my money’s worth out of this purchase, and the good news is, many insurance companies will completely cover the cost of a breast pump now! Just make sure you check with your insurance before you buy one!
Chicco Keyfit 30 Infant Car Seat was another popular pin on my board. This seat is well-known for being easy to install, and we have been very pleased with it! It is also very easy to buckle, and clicks in place so you know it’s attached to the base properly. I’m also a big fan of Chicco’s Liteway Plus Stroller, because the car seat can attach to this compact stroller…making errand running easier!
The third most popular pin is the Lunch Break Thermal from Thirty One. The idea behind this thermal, is that it is a cute (and personalized) way to carry your breast pump. Creative idea, isn’t it? 🙂
Ok, my second most popular pin (with over 170 pins!) is the Total Baby App. This app does it all! It can keep track of everything from breastfeeding, diaper changes, baths, doctor’s appointments, sleeping habits, and more. I used this app daily for the first year of Jeremiah’s life, and I still use it to update milestones and doctor’s appointments. When you are sleep-deprived, there is very little you can remember, but this does it all for you. It can even automatically set an alarm so you know when your next feeding should be. Seriously, every new mom needs this app!
And finally, number one (with 220 pins): Sensible Lines Milk Freezer Tray . These are a wonderful way to freeze and store extra milk. The best thing about them, is that milk is frozen in one ounce increments, so you only thaw what you need. AND, the frozen milk sticks can fit inside the mouth of a bottle, so you don’t need to thaw them first and risk a leak! After pumping, I would freeze the milk, then transfer it into quart-sized freezer Ziploc bags. When I was ready to use it, I just put the amount I needed into the bottle, then used the bottle warmer to heat it up. Easy.
Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my most popular pins! If you’d like to see my entire board, click here. What other items should I pin on my Baby Stuff board? Leave me a comment! 🙂
