I'm 34 weeks pregnant , and a first time mommy. So I'd love to know what item you could NOT live without after you had your baby?

    A comfortable chair for nursing.

    Her swing.... she LOVES it, and it has given me quite a few nights of peace when she wouldn't sleep anywhere else.

    EDIT: Also a couple of crocheted {can be knitted if you want of course} baby blankets. When I didn't have to have her in her swing to sleep, I would use a crocheted blanket to cover her at night to help keep her warmer but I didn't have to be scared about her getting it over her face and not being able to breath through it etc. They were a huge stress reliever for me.

    Quoting jen2150:

    My water bottle.  I breast fed and I was constanlty drinking.  I had to have my water on hand at all times.

    Tow things... Swing and cloth diapers to use as spit up rags. Those things were super helpful.
