DH and I went to a couple stores a few weeks ago and got totally overwhelmed by the sure volume of baby-related paraphernalia one can purchase. Just looking at the stroller aisle overwhelmed me, and we left shortly thereafter!

We have a good idea of what we want for the big/obvious stuff (crib, dresser/changing table, and after much research, the whole stroller thing), but not sure about other things (how many car seat options are there?? which types of carriers work best? do we really need a saucer AND a swing AND a jumper AND a pack and play?).

So, for you parents out there (or those about to be parents, but have dealt with this already), what are your recommendations? Anything you bought that was a life-saver or a must-have? What about things you bought that ended up being useless?
