Nursing/Feeding

Breast Pump — I bought the Avent Isis Manual Pump at first, which is shown in the picture below. If you won’t be away from your baby and the pump is just for breast engorgement, it’ll be fine. But if you will be traveling or working, this is not as powerful as Medela electronic ones. I bought Medela pump in style traveler later. It’s very convenient and I’ve never used the Avent one since. So if you are sure you will be away from your baby, I suggest you invest in a Medela at the very beginning. It has manual feature, any way.

Breast pump是非常非常有用的东西,在刚开始奶水还不足的时候需要用pump帮助吸奶,在后来开始上班的时候也需要为宝宝准备食物,但不一定要买,我觉得。

如果你需要出去上班,一定要一个电动的,手动的太累。有很多地方都可以租,一般只要有医生的处方,保险会管的。我们从WIC (Women, Infant and Children) program免费借了一个月,是Medela 电动的,其实半个月后基本上奶水就已经很足,不再需要了。后来朋友送给我们一个同样的,现在正在用。

Nursing Pillow — Extremely helpful in the first couple of months, when baby is really small.

非常非常有用,在开始的一个月里是我们认为准备的最值得的东西。因为是C-section,所以刚开始的时候只能用football的姿势,boopy pillow起了很大的帮助作用。后来还可以作为宝宝 tummy time时的玩具。

Bottles and Newborn Nipples— If you are planning breast feeding, this is not very important. However, if you will be away from your baby, you’d better start try bottle-feeding around 4-6 weeks. After that, it’s relatively hard for baby to accept a bottle. Also notice that when you buy Avent product like Isis pump, there will be bottles in the package (We didn’t buy any before Amy was born). In addition, some babies are really picky about bottle, so you might need to try different brands.

我们用的是Dr. Brown的奶瓶。可以有效防止空气进入,拍起嗝来轻松一些。就是洗起来稍微麻烦一点。

Nursing Bras — Extremely helpful if you are planning breast feeding. Buy at least one size and one cup bigger. For example, if you are 32A before pregnancy, you might need 34B or 34C or even bigger. You can buy a couple of them before giving birth and buy more when you are sure about your size. The ones at motherhood.com are not bad.

也是在motherhood买的。

Nursing Pads — I find disposable ones (I like Gerber contour for medium and heavy flow) very useful in the first couple of months when my milk supply is more than enough. Since the leaking was really severe, using washable ones still gave me wet shirts. Later on when the leakage is not a big concern, the washable ones are fine.

我喜欢Lansinoh的disposable pad. 每一片有单独包装,更重要的是不起毛。用过garber和johnson的,不喜欢。

Breast cream — Extremely helpful for the first couple of weeks. Your nurse might recommend some brand. I find Lansinoh very good.

Lansinoh is very good for me too.

Burping cloths — Never had any. Some find them useful, though. I just let Amy spit on me. : p.

我们有两块,主要是来客人的时候垫在客人肩上(如果他们想抱抱宝宝的话)

Bottle Warmer — Never had any.

买过一个,觉得用处不大。我们是用电水壶里面的水加热奶瓶。(记得绝对不要用微波炉) PS:现在觉得还是很有用的。不过你要是从小训练她吃凉的问题也可以。

Bottle Sterilizer — Avent Express Microwave Steam Sterilizer is very convenient. I’d call it a “must-have”. And in the package there are 4 bottles.

我们有一个上面这样的,是especially for baby牌子的,现在其实很少用。还是用开水煮的比较放心。

Bottle Drying Rack — Never had any.

没有。

Bottle Brush — 1 should be enough. I bought mine at wal-mart.

Same here.

Pacifiers — Different babies have different preference. Amy likes the Avent ones. I guess it’s because she uses Avent bottle and nipples. I didn’t give it to her until she was 1 month old to avoid nipple confusion. And she quit using it when she was 4 months old. She just didn’t like it any more. Some babies keep sucking on it till 3 years old. If you are afraid your babies gonna be like that, just don’t offer them any. So basically I suggest you hold off such things after your baby is born. The hospital will give you one for free any way.

从来没有用过,我总觉得用pacifier不是太好,我挺不喜欢好几岁的小孩还含一个pacifier。不过这样的结果是有时候宝宝拿我自己当pacifier, sleepy 我觉得这个看个人的喜好。

Rattle and Teether — Amy started to notice such things when she was 2 or 3 months. So again, you don’t need to pile up stock on this. But I couldn’t resist buying them before Amy was born. So it’s up to you.

Same here.

Baby Care

Baby Thermometer — Don’t use the mercury ones. They are considered not safe. Buy a digital one which can be used rectally because that’s the most accurate way for newborns. I don’t think brand matters. I bought mine at Wal-mart.

我们是在RiteAid买的。Anyway,有一个就好了。

Baby Nail Scissor, Brush — I cut Amy’s nails when she was 2 days old. You can certainly use the ones you use for yourself. But I feel they are way too big. There are a lot of other accessories. But we only have these two and find it enough so far.

我们买的是一个小包,里面有指甲刀、梳子。

Nasal Aspirator — very useful for us.

非常非常有用。刚开始的时候有一天宝宝哭了很久,最后才发现是鼻子堵住了。从此知道宝宝哭除了饿和尿布湿了还有鼻子堵住了这种原因。

Room Thermometer — very useful for us, you might want one of those meters that can tell humidity, too. Adults are not as sensitive as newborns. Some time you feel comfortable while they don’t. So these meters can help.

需要,不需要把房间的温度弄得太高,只要你自己感觉舒服就可以了。我觉得小孩冷一点比热一点好,我们经常把宝宝脱光了让她在床上爬来爬去。

Diaper Pail — Never had any.

没有。

Bath

Bath Tub — We bought ours at IKEA, which is the first one below. It’s not as fancy as the second one, which is for new born. But we use a certain bath rack from wal-mart in it and it worked fine. Later when Amy is bigger we take the rack out and it’s much bigger.

总之是需要一个的,现在刚刚开始不用澡盆,直接让她坐在浴缸里玩水了。

Bath Towel — They are cute. But actually our normal bath towel works, too.

Same here.

Soft Washcloths — We bought about a dozen. It’s more than enough.

Same here.

Bath Toy — We bought a couple, again, just because they are cute. But up until now, 6 months, Amy still doesn’t pay much attention to them.

现在(七个月)开始玩了。

Bath Water Thermometer — We have one, never used it. Maybe for the first couple of baths you’d need it to avoid freaking out yourself. But generally you can just feel it to know.

没有。

Toiletries

We bought a package of these things, including shampoo, wash, and lotion. There are some other fancy stuffs; like baby oil, rubbing alcohol, sun block. We don’t have them, and never need them. Recently Amy had eczema. And our ped said J&J is not very good. She said the only thing special about baby toiletries is that they are marketed for babies. She recommended a couple of brands, including Dove and Nivea, which I am using. So I don’t think you need to buy these things special for your baby.

基本上我们只用清水给她洗澡。刚开始是有全套东西的,后来发现她可能会过敏,身上起红斑,所以就不用了。 shampoo johnsohn的好像不是很好,头发发黄。Aveeno好一点。

Mild soap for laundry — We just wash Amy’s clothes together with ours, so never have this.

有一桶Draft的,不过也许不用也可以。

Cotton swabs Cotton Balls — Before Amy was 1 month old, we use this and water to clean her bottoms. But wipes are fine, too, I think.

必需品。我们是用来给她擦眼睛,擦脸啊什么的。

还有Q-tip的棉花棒,也很有用。

Petroleum jelly — Useful, especially when you want to take the baby’s temperature rectally.

每次换完Diaper,洗完澡都需要抹。Vaselin也可以。

Diaper ointment (cream) — Definitely a must have.

必需品,我前面的帖子里说过。

Alcohol Swabs — You’d need this to clean baby’s belly button for a week or so.

现在最新的医学研究表明,不用酒精擦的话更好。

Car Seat

Without this, you cannot take your baby out of the hospital. You can get an infant car seat, or a convertible car seat. The latter one can be used for much longer. But normally they are ugly.

Infant carseat可以在医院买,我们这里25元钱一个,比外面便宜多了。可以找警察局的人帮忙检查装得对不对,医院也应该有免费的seminar。不过我们是和下面的travel system一起买的。

大概是从8个月的时候我们开始用Convertible carseat,是Evenflo Triumph 5 Comfort Touch Car Seat with LATCH,性价比不错,Amazon评价很好,So far, so good.

Stroller

Full size stroller — We get ours as a travel system, which including an infant car seat.

我们也是用的Travel System,是Graco Quattro Tour Travel System,用起来很方便。可以把从车上取下来的infant car seat直接放到stroller上面,这样不会打扰宝宝睡觉。直接提carseat很累的。

Umbrella Stroller (with sun-shielding) — We haven’t got ours, so I don’t think you’d worry about this just yet.

等小孩会自己坐起来的时候就可以用这个了。ToyRUS有一阵子买够75块钱的东西就送一个,我们那个就是那时候拿来的。

Playards——We don’t have it, mostly because we don’t have that much room in an apartment.

我们有一个是在Target买的,是Evenflo的Baby GO,可以折叠起来放在车里,刚买回来的时候好像很有用。可以把它放在院子里,让baby在里面晒太阳,出门去玩的时候也可以带上,晚上可以睡在里面。但很快她学会满地爬以后就不愿意呆在里面了,现在基本没用过了。可以跳过,我觉得。

Bouncers/Swings We have a bouncer. Amy started to sit in it when she was 1 week old. She likes it a lot. Some babies like swing better. We didn’t buy it because we don’t have that much room.

这两个我们都有,是朋友送的。刚开始的时候很有用,相比之下她更喜欢swing。很快小孩长大了,就不能用了。

Highchair We just bought ours last week. So you don’t need to worry about it just yet. And again, because we don’t have that much room, we bought a booster, which serves fine.

必需品。一个好的high chair是baby学会进食好的开端。

Diapers/Formula

Diapers — We tried 3 different brands, pampers, huggies and white cloud from walmart. We find white cloud’s new born size very good, not as chunky as the other two. But starting size 1, they are not as good as the other two. We like pampers the best for size 1-2 and size 3, quality-wise and anti-leaking-wise. We bought them either from Sams’ Club or Babiesrus (when we have coupons). Amy was born rather small, so we used 3 packs new born size (80 each). I guess you guys only need to buy new born ones. And since hospital will give you some, plus, if you register online, you’d always get samples, you can try different brand to see which one you like.

You can also use washable diapers. There are diaper services, which are not as expensive as I thought. It’s almost the same price as you purchased disposable ones.

这个在其他的帖子里我说过了。我们目前只用pampers Cruise,以前试过huggies和其他的一个杂牌子,很不喜欢。

我们用的是pampers cruise,很喜欢。用过一次huggis,感觉很不好,遇水后很容易结块,硬邦邦地宝宝也很不舒服。好像其他的爸爸妈妈也有类似的经历,不明白为什么 huggies还是卖得挺好,反正我们以后再也不买了。一箱diaper一般是30块左右,costco降价的时候是25,babyrus有coupon 的时候也可以(20% off)。上次amazon有买够70送30块钱gift card的deal,我们买了3箱(每箱30)。babyrus的coupon在哪些免费的baby杂志上都有(American baby, baby talk之类的)

Wipes — Brands don’t make a difference to us.

只在出门的时候用,在家基本不用。基本上我们都是用水洗PP的,干净卫生,就是稍微麻烦些。Wipe用来擦地上的奶渍很有效。

Formula — If you register on babycenter.com or something like that, they’d send you samples.

试过Enfamil,Similac和Nestle。目前baby ingrid只吃 Milk based Enfamil Lipil with Iron。我们都是买38oz的那种大桶,一个星期多一点就吃完了。一般的店里找不到,只有amazon和costco有。Amazon卖$31, Costco现在卖$29。因为有80%的GC,所以以前都是在Amazon买。不过现在Amazon没货了,只好到Costco。
