NURSING CHAIR good buy or waist of money????

  
When you look at photos of nurseries, or set up rooms in the baby shops they always have nursing chair/ feeding chair.

 This automatically makes you think that you need one … But they aren’t the pretties things and they are very expensive. 

My werdict is that it’s a waste of money. Why? If you fallow the NHS guidance on how to look after your new born it will mean that you will have your baby sleeping next to you in your bedroom. When you get up 10 times in the middle of the night to feed, trust me you don’t pick up your baby then move to sit on the chair, you just do it on your bed (I am breastfeeding so not sure if this same applies to bottle feeding). 

Also at 6 months when you move your baby to its room you don’t feed them that often, and if you are lucky enough your baby will be sleeping through the night all together! 

But when you are a first time mum to be you think that it makes sense so you buy one, so did I. Difference is that I bought a lovely armchair which I will be using for much longer than feeding baby. So my advice is use an armchair/chair which you already have or buy one which you love and can use after in your house!

BIB

Who would think that I would have such a strong opinion about bibs 😊

I know it’s a bit random but if your baby is dribbling all day long and insane amount of it, you start to have a vey strong opinions about bibs 🙂 

I always thought that it should look nice and that’s it. Now I discovered that’s not the case. Bibs checklist:

1. Obviously it needs to be pretty 

2. Traditional square shape with round cutting around the neck. Sounds silly ? I bought a lot of  triangle ones and they don’t fit around the neck properly and are quite short which means that she dribbles around it 🙂

3. Needs to have a waterproof lining underneath. Why? Bib without it is totally wet after an hour and so is Chloe’s top. 

4. Ideally don’t have velcro sticking it together. Reason behind is that after a few washes it stops working and it’s damaging you other clothes in the wash:-)

Hope that you find it helpful 😊
