I have six children (and counting), and have found that lots and lots of baby items that you buy are pretty much a waste of time. There is nothing that your baby will like better than being in your arms (rather than those gadgets). Front packs and beds are good, but apart from that, I have found that even prams can be excess to requirements. Also if you’re cooking dinner, this is a really good time for a busy daddy, to get to know baby. Except for my eldest, all my kids have been out of day time nappies by 18 months and mostly out of night time nappies by two years. Good relationships make parenting easier – and children much easier to train. No equipment will ever replace that.
