all of that long-winded lead in to ask: what gear did/do your babies use and love? be specific. i'm curious, and i know there are plenty of you out there with experience and opinions. and we're talking all parents here, not just ones who've had babies in the past 5 years. you know, like my dad, who asked the other day, "do they still make teething rings?" and "those used to be great, but so did playpens so..." ha.
anyway, i'm just having an obsessed mom-to-be moment.
and even though i know he doesn't really NEED anything except diapers and mama's milk, indulge me, OK?
