What did he do with the blue panel down the length of the bed? Can't really tell from the picture, but it's not the blue.

We really "live" in the living room (baby's room too small for playing. So it would go in the living room.

I like the Catch Bowl, as the little one is just learning how to feed herself with utensils.

I was anti-bumper before the baby, but we've used one since she was 6 months old. Ours serves 2 purposes: prevent arms and legs from getting wedged bt the bars, and block out direct light from nightlight or window in the morning from getting in the baby's eyes. Ours is too floppy for the baby to use to climb on.

Oh, and now that she is big (16 months), I'll also slip a few books bt the bumper and the railing that she will take out and "read" in the morning. It gives us a little more time for sleep!

Super soft blanket. And since we're just talking, the rocker it's draped over.

Seriously, just use a bowl. We feed our 14 mo old some things in a mug, because just by wiggling the spoon a little she can manage to scoop something up.

I've heard that all a baby needs is "tits and a blanket". A 3 month old baby hardly *needs* anything.

Baby eats: your breast or bottle feeding supplies. If you already have a comfortable chair, you don't need to buy a glider. I would often nurse in bed.

Baby sleeps: you don't need a full size crib early on, and a moses basket (see photo above) may be nicer because you can keep the baby very near you, or move the baby's bed around easily.

Baby poops: diapers, wipes, ointments. Changing tables aren't necessary and take up valuable space in a small apt and add to the hassle of moving. You can decide to buy one after you move. You can either buy just the changing pad to put down on a safe surface, or even just put a towel down.

Baby cries: swaddles, mobiles, white noise machines, exercise balls, bouncers, swings - any might help, though you won't know for sure until you try them. I recommend Harvey Karp's Happiest Baby on the Block DVD, swaddles, exercise ball (you can also use for your own back exercises, and can take the air out when moving), and a bouncer, because that's a safe place you can put the baby down when you need a break. Good for taking pictures too.

Remember - you can always buy it later.

Congratulations!

In our living room, which is the playroom for the whole family.

Books and snacks.

Aside from the necessities for the baby's eats, drinks, poops, and skin (eczema), she needs to be entertained. A few rotating books and fingerpuppets. I even have a book with fingerpuppets.

Gray, please. Second choice, lime.
