1. Crib- never
2. Changing pad/Changing Table- I've changed him everywhere even the backseat of my car or the trunk of my car, I never restricted myself to a change table. A blanket or change pad is good to get
3. Infant seat- 6m. He got too heavy to carry in a basket
4. Bassinet- 1 month
5. Play Yard-never
6. Dockatot/ Summer by your side-no
7. Stroller - at 2.5 to 3. 5 years old, we used it for long outings/trips to nap, rest and carry stuff. We encouraged him to walk as much as possible
8. Jolly Jumper-5 times
9. Infant Bath tub- 9m

We also went with their own room in their own crib. If you get a baby monitor, you have flexibility in where you are while monitoring anyways and if you are the mom, you'll hear them screaming for you regardless of how tired you are. I know people say that there are things so that you can cosleep, but a) I don't trust myself not to roll over into baby b) you still (IMHO) need a place of your own. If baby is now in your bed, where do you go to get away and have quiet time of your own?
