    Baby monitors with video feed. I loved that thing when my granddaughter was an infant. If I was babysitting I could just look at the monitor and not worry about waking her.

    When my first was born (34 years ago!) we rigged up a monitor from his room to the basement. It was wired and only had sound, of course, but at least when we were downstairs watching tv we could hear if he needed us.
    I can't think of anything witty to say for my signature line.

    The Bumbo seats came out right after my boys were too old for them, they are sure nice. We would have been screwed without double stroller and the swings.

    Those Bumbo seats are so overpriced though. And they really have a limited lifespan (I mean they only fit babies when they're pretty tiny). My DIL buys them at thrift stores for $5 and re-sells them online for much more.

    And it's a two person job to pull a chunky baby out of a bumbo!

    LOL! We never got to use them. I could see the limited life span but they so would have helped us when the boys were too little for high chairs.
