Newborn Essentials

I am a little late on posting this since little man is now 2 months but here it is anyways! 🙂 When Colton was a wee newborn there were a few products that we really depended on and made our life a lot easier. Here is what worked for us, others might have other essentials but these were ours!

Newborn Essentials

Fisher-Price My Little Snugabunny Bouncer – Colton LOVED his bouncer from the get go. It was great for him to nap in, to just relax in  and for us to have a break in holding him. This bouncer has two different music sounds and vibrates. THe only downfall is that it goes through batteries.

Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets – these were the best to swaddle with! The are not too heavy and are very breathable. To be honest, I wouldn’t by any other blanket but these. I have  ton of blankets and we haven’t even touched them.

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Pacifiers 0-6m – Colton took to these pacifiers and they have been great! He liked the 0-6m better than the 0-3m ones though.

Fisher-Price My Little Snugabuny Newborn Rock n’ Play Sleeper – This thing is perfect!! Baby boy has been sleeping in it since we brought him home. Its light weight, doesn’t take up that much room and folds for easy storage. Plus the entire cover is washable!

Carter’s Cotton Zip-up Sleep & Play Pajamas – OMG are the zippers so much easier than the snaps. Those late night changes are pain when you are trying to snap together the other pajamas. The zip-up pajamas are def my favorite and plus they are cute!

Boppy – Perfect for nursing! There are a ton of different cover choices and machine washable!

Gerber Newborn Bidseye Prefold Diapers – We are not a cloth diaper family but we use these for burp cloths. They are perfect to go over your shoulder to burp or to wipe up some spit up.

Aveeno Baby Daily Moisture Lotion – We started Colton on a different lotion but he was getting a rash from it, so we tried this lotion and loved it. It dries quickly and is fragrance free which is good for babies sensitive skin.

Itzbeen Pocket Nanny – what a lifesaver this was during the first month! It keeps track of the last diaper change, lasted feeding, last side you fed on and more. Perfect of sleep deprived mammas.

Pampers Swaddlers and Pampers Sensitive Wipes – Each baby is different (duh..) but this are the diapers that worked for us. We never had a blow out (knock on wood), just a couple of pee pee leeks when daddy we didn’t put the diaper on right.

That’s it! If I was having a baby all over again, I would be registering for all of these items. We wouldn’t have made it through the first month with out them! Well we would have but we wouldn’t be happy campers!!

Until next time!
