I bought cribs from Ikea. I bought two for the twins and then a new crib for DD2. She is 20mos but there is NO way I am moving her out of her crib anytime soon and her old one was recalled and falling apart. Anyway, I bought the cheaper $99 crib in white. It sits super low and has two mattress heights. I also bought the hanging changing table. I was concerned about the mattress size at first because they look smaller. I went back to the store and measured and found a regular crib mattress will fit. Now some of their cribs want you to use different thickness of mattress so if the standard crib mattress won't fit you might have to buy one of theirs. Like my standard mattress is 5" thick but one crib I looked at wanted you to use a 3" thick mattress. But I really didn't care for their mattresses because they are cloth. I prefer the plastic ones. I got one of my 20% coupons at BRU and got a mattress for $50 which is cheaper than some of Ikea's mattresses. HTH!
Do you have a store nearby or are you only looking online? Oh and so far I am VERY happy with DD1's crib and am looking forward to getting the other two put together.View Thread
I don't think my kids looked right in shorts under six months either. Well DD1 was the only one that could wear them with the season but it still looked weird. I say stick with the rompers that are short sleeve/shorts but I still think their little legs look funny and scrawny in shorts when they're that small.View Thread
I have to say I think a humidifier is a good thing. Just make sure it's a cool mist not the hot. I have used ours more in our room than I have the kids. lol But when your baby has a cold you can run it all night while they sleep or during naps. I think they are helpful!View Thread
We don't have a BJ's around here. We do have a Sams but for me formula isn't cheaper there. I think their brand is about the same price as the Target brand. Target is more convient for me. Enfamil or Similac can't beat the store brand (wal-mart or target) even at Sams. The six cans sold as a pack online through Target is the same price as the store. The baby food is slightly higher than in store and could be a lot higher than the grocery store when they have a sale but it would a lot easier for me to order it online than to go to the store with all the kids. Even now when DH goes with me shopping isn't all that much fun because the kids drive me nuts. I prefer to go when DS is in school. But next year when he is in preschool again I will still have four kids with me. I would rather pay a bit more online (with free shipping of course) than go to the grocery store with the kids.View Thread
So I am looking online and found Target sells their Up & Up brand formula online! They also sell Huggies and Pampers, and Gerber baby food! I am hoping they start selling their Up & Up diapers online soon too. Gerber.com also sells baby food and rice cereal online. I am excited because this will make things a bit easier. The formula is sold in 6pk so that should last about a month (I hope!) with twins.View Thread
