Baby Gear!

Jonathan and I went shopping today for a carseat and a baby gym! I have to say, Jonathan was really a trooper about the whole experience, given the fact that he intensely dislikes shopping, but he gladly went along with me to pick out the important gear left on our list before our little boy arrives!

We started out at Baby USA and bought our carseat, the Chicco Keyfit 30. I had previously shopped around online and found that Baby USA had the best price on this particular carseat, given that we would have paid shipping if we had decided to purchase the seat from another mainstream retailer, such as Target. We looked at the different colors offered in the Keyfit 30 and decided on the "Adventure" color- green and tan.

As with most baby-related items, I expected some assembly but was pleasantly surprised when I pulled the carseat out of the box and everything (including the padding) was ready for use. The only assembly with this carseat will be installing it in our car... another blog, another time!

Besides the carseat, Jonathan and I also wanted to purchase a baby gym for our little boy before his arrival. We chose the Fisher Price Precious Planet Musical Gym which includes not only the option of music but also several hanging toys and a mirror.

Unlike the carseat, the gym required assembly. The assembly was very easy; the most time-consuming part was simply washing the hanging toys before attaching them to the gym.

All in all, it was a very productive day! Jonathan and I picked up the last of the necessary baby gear needed before Baby G arrives and we can now start to decide which things we want to have for our little man...

  1. We have the same gym! we haven't taken it out yet, but we need too! Maybe when we get the extra furniture out of the living room.
