Why oh why...and how?! Did I become mommy obsessed? We all have our little obsessions...currently mine are nursing tops, baby carriers, and diaper bags. Ok I have a bag obsession in general...so it's not a big stretch to become obsessed with diaper bags. And in all fairness, the shoe obsession has been reduced a little lately. :)
I love trying new nursing tops. I think I currently own about 5 different brands...but it is an expensive obsession! But I am on a quest to find that perfect nursing top. I have to say that one of my favorites so far are the Boob nursing top. (Which are now available online at Toysrus-my Canadian friends!) It offers just the right amount of ease and discreetness.
My other obsession would be baby carriers. One of the images in my mind when I was pregnant was carrying my baby while doing chores and while nursing. That definitely did not happen! First, had a wee little trouble figuring out that nursing thing which didn't get resolved until about the 3 month mark. And then my little one was much bigger and not so easy to carry. I tried a standard carrier (2 kinds), a wrap, and briefly a sling. But so far the winner, hands down, is the Ergo Baby! It's comfy for me, comfy for the baby...and easy to use!! Yay, the obsession has paid off!
And finally diaper bags. I have my assortment of diaper bags, but what I have discovered is that in reality...if you have a bag (any bag...like a sports bag) with lots of pockets, and a couple of bottle pockets (which lots of them do now), you are good to go. All of them can be adapted to hang off your stroller, they even sell the attachments separately.
The awe of the uniqueness of all these cool items is finally wearing off a little. Probably due to the lack of use of some of these cool items...I've used my shopping cart cover-exacty twice! Although, I'm sure if I had the cover when E was smaller, then I would have used it more. But now he eats goosepoop-so why worry about a few shopping cart germs.
