Baby Gear Recommendations

When I was pregnant and setting up my nursery, I found it really difficult to figure out what to buy. I remember spending hours researching which car seat to get.

Some of my mom friends sent me spreadsheets or emails full of recommendations that were really helpful. In turn, I have put my list of baby gear recommendations here.

Hope it helps some of you!


This blog has followed me through many stages of my life. It's been with my for most of my adult life. As a wise woman once said: "You can have everything in life, but only sequentially."

I'm very aware that my life progresses in stages. I've been through the try-to-change-the-world-and-become-somewhat-disillusioned stage. Then came the-traveling-and-exploring-this-crazy-world-and-myself-is-all-I-want-to-be-doing stage. Then came the I-must-make-my-mark-before-I-get-old-and-settle-down stage. And recently, I went through the must-find-a-good-life-partner-and-cultivate-a-healthy-relationship stage. And right now, as the title suggests, I'm really heavily focused on being a new mom.

I mean, I still have a lot of other things going on (some have said too many), but being a mom is what is occupying the majority of my head space.

My son is a year old now, and I wish I had had more energy to blog some of my experiences in the first year. But I figure it's never to late to begin. This shift in priorities also coincides with a move to the East Coast for my husband's job. We are now in Boston. Time to update the mast head!
