It does not get much cuter than baby things! Our baby shower was last month, and I have been prepping for our baby’s arrival, and shopping the essentials.
After extensive conversations with my sister, sister-in-law, and mothers in a mom’s group that I participate in, I created a list of essential baby items for a new baby.
Baby Essentials for Newborns
These are the baby must-haves that we have so far!
Stroller: We opted for the UPPAbaby VISTA which is currently one of the highest-rated strollers in the market. I was looking for a top-quality stroller that is capable of surviving the bumpy streets of New York City! It starts as a single stroller, can easily transform to accommodate up to three children, and everyone told us it will last us many years!
Baby Monitor: We have the Owlet Dream Duo 2, the only baby monitor to track heart rate and oxygen as Sleep Quality Indicators, and we look forward to it tracking our baby’s sleeping patterns while providing us with notifications.
Nursing Pillow: I will be using the Brest Friend Nursing Pillow which has a wraparound design that clips around your waist, adjustable attachment straps, enhanced lumbar back support, and a thick firm cushion to hold the baby.
Bath Support: Many moms we know recommended Angelcare Baby Bath Support which is inexpensive, and ideal for babies due to its soft ergonomic design, and quick dry material. I chose white, but it’s available in pink and blue also.
Baby Carrier: We decided on the Omni Breeze carrier because it is the lighter version of the previous Ergo Baby carrier and made with breathable mesh. I hope we love it!
Baby Playpen: I specifically added this Baby Playpen With Map to our baby registry because it has a gate. We have dogs, and I want them to be around the baby while the baby is in a pet-free zone! This one is useful and will give any mom peace of mind – I’m excited for it!
We are still trying to pick a diaper bag, a crib, and a dresser!
Any suggestions?! 🙂
