We picked up an infant carrier today. We went and looked at several of them at Babies R Us tonight, and liked this one best. Mike was particularly fond of the Z shaped handle, and how it is easy to carry. We tried several different ones, with various handles, and felt this was the most useful for us. We also had checked safety standards, and knew that this one was a good one. Of course, the $10 off coupon we had made it that much of a better deal. We had a two gift cards to Babies R Us (they always come in handy!), so we used that to apply toward the purchase of the infant carrier as well. We plan to eventually get another base (they are also sold on their own) so that we can keep one in both of our cars.
While we were there, we took a look at the bassinets too. We are still considering if we will need one or not, as we are not sure if we are going to start our little one immediately in the nursery or in our room for the first few months or so. We have always liked the Eddie Bauer wooden one, but not the fact that the only one available was light wood. Well, much to our surprise, tonight we saw they had it in a darker wood, that matches our high chair! I am so glad they have it in that color. They don't have it online at Babies R Us yet, just in the store. But they do have it online at Target.
