Baby Zrust #4 is on the way - that's no secret anymore...
With that comes the instant need to BUY ALL THE THINGS! Its amazing how after 3 kids I still get excited about gear. But... with all the time I have spent behind the scenes with MommyCon... I get to see all the best stuff out there. Its fair to say this baby has great taste. I've been pinning all night and thought all my favorites belong right here. So here it goes!
#1: 4Moms - rockaRoo... "The rockaRoo™ flips the swing on its head. Literally. It rocks like a rocking horse, which maximizes the sensation of motion for your baby." 5 speeds, mp3 player, removable toys... Need. We had the MamaRoo with Rozz and ready to try out the newest one!

#2: Boon - Flair HighChair... "No cracks. No crevices. Therefore, no abyss full of crumbs. This one-piece seat is the sleekest, smoothest thing going and it makes cleanup unbelievably easy. Its dishwasher-safe tray cover actually fits in a dishwasher. And the continuous height positioning with pneumatic lift is just a fancy way of saying you can pick the exact height you want to fit your table." Our chair has finally bit the dust. Its 7 years old but its been scrubbed as many times as it can. This guy isn't coming clean... time for an upgrade! I will also take all the other things from Boon... like - all the things. I went nuts on the plates, utensils, etc. last time... this time I just want it all. Oh, and especially the Glo :) SO RAD!!!!!
#3: Joovy - Caboose: AHHHHHHHH GENIUS!! I am about to be a mom of 4 kids. FOUR!! I am a big baby wearer... but sometimes you just need a good stroller to help get you where you need to go and this is the one. One of the big kids can stand in the back... a little in the front. One in a ring sling - holy cow - makes me feel like super mom thinking of all the things I could get done when my kiddos don't want to walk. And my favorite new feature is the add on Caboose Too Seat... All you do is attach it to the back bench and it adds another full seat that reclines AND has a 5 point harness. SO SO SO awesome...
#4: Clek - Tokidoki Foonf: Does this seat really need an introduction? Those of you that have been around for awhile probably know my wild love affair with Tokidoki... so much so that I will eventually have a full right arm sleeve of it. (If I'm ever not pregnant long enough, lol) When I saw this seat it was no doubt that it would have to be mine... *ahem* I mean... the baby's seat. Yeah. Its basically the greatest seat - of all seats... ever. Clek's have more than earned their reputation for being super safe and allowing extended rear facing... I have the high back booster in Rebel... this guy will be next on the list.
#5: Medela - Freestyle Hands Free Double Electric Pump: The cadillac of pumps... Always rated at the tippy top of the charts. My middle son wouldn't nurse and sadly I didn't have a pump. My first son was such a champ I didn't ever think of it being a possible issue. Dumb. By the time I got a good pump... After spending countless hours hand pumping myself into a bottle - my milk was dried up... I gave up and still feel like I failed him... :(
With Rozz I had a hand me down pump from my BFF and was overly prepared and didn't really need it. This time around I want to be ready just in case baby 4 doesn't want to nurse. (Though this time I am a lot more educated on ways to help him/her out with that). I work in the office SO MUCH and a good pump for when daddy wants to give a bottle would be amazing... and if I could sew while Im pumping... even better.
So that's the list friends... I have tried a LOT of products over the years... and there are few that I will stand behind. But after lots and LOTS of research... these are my top 5 gear items for baby #4. If you have any to add PLEAES let me know below! Would love to hear your input.
