Newborn Favorites

While I was pregnant, I lived by newborn essential lists and product reviews. There is SO much out there, I didn't want to waste money and I didn't want a bunch of stuff that went unused. Between baby showers gifts and online shopping, I aquired a good amount of baby items and there have definitely been a few essentials that have become my favorites..


Fisher-Price Newborn Rock 'n Play Sleeper - Love this thing...we scoot it all around the house and take it on overnight trips. It's portable and baby sure does find it to be super cozy.

Sckoon Booties - The ONLY thing that will stay on my babe's feet and they're also pretty cute.

Avent Soothie Pacifiers - It's a good pacifier, what else can I say.

Boppy - Comfy for breastfeeding, perfect for propping up the baby, and makes a good travel pillow for me :)

Boba Wrap - Baby wearing is one of my favorite things and once you can figure out how this enormous piece of fabric works..then you're in for a sweet experience. 

Evenflo Glass Bottles - I picked up a few of these as back-up because they were small and super cheap -- they turned out to be awesome because they are simple with few parts to clean!

Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets - We use these to swaddle, as a nursing cover, as a blanket, etc... Super soft and a great size.

Motorola Video Monitor - An expensive item but so awesome. I love watching her wiggle around in her sleep.

This is great! Thanks for posting. Any recommendations for cute and functional diaper bags?

The Rock n' Play Sleeper and swaddle blankets were two of my favorites too! Another favorite are the packs of Gerber cloth diapers. The thick ones make great burp cloths and I also put one on top of the changing table pad for extra protection. Recently I started using Honest Co. diapers and bath products and am very pleased with them :)

Kim -- YES! The gerber cloth diapers are definitely great burp cloths, I use those all the time! I've looked at Honest Co. but haven't taken the plunge...sounds like I should :)

Kara -- We went with the SkipHop Via Messanger (because it was unisex) for our diaper bag and I'm okay with it. I hate carrying around a big bag along with my purse so I often use an Orla Kiely Midi Sling Bag I got at a sample sale years ago that I can use as both.
