New Baby Must Have’s

 

 

Welcoming a bundle of joy soon? There are SO many baby products out there it can be pretty overwhelming on what to purchase.  Being a mom of 3 kids under 3 I consider myself somewhat of an expert in the baby gear department.  I can’t tell you how many products we have purchased and never used or didn’t work out!  So i’m saving you guys some time and rounding up some of my favorite baby gear that will hopefully make your life as a new parent a little bit easier.

4Moms Breeze Play Yard

I am such an advocate for pack and plays.  I will look at photos of when I was younger and I was usually in a playpen surrounded by tons of toys while my mom was cooking dinner.  I wouldn’t be able to get anything done in my home without one.  Pack and plays allow me to cook dinner, clean the house and have my morning coffee.  I love this one because it’s so easy to pack up and take with you.  Ours has been on many family vacations and is currently on our third child so you know it’s durable!

Portable Swing

By the third kid you have tried almost every gadget there is out there.  This portable swing is everything during the first few months.  It’s compact enough to fit on my center island so it allows the baby to be near me but out of reach to my tiny little helpers.  Plus it folds up for easy travel.

DockAtot

I really can’t say enough about this product.  Our first son was not a sleeper AT ALL.  So when I found out I was pregnant for the second time I was not messing around! I did my research and am so glad that I cam across this gem.  It’s a bit pricy but totally worth it.  Our second son sleeps in the bigger version and our newborn sleeps in the smaller one.

Tote Savvy

Anyone else a neat freak? This amazing invention allows you to keep all of your diaper bag essentials in an orderly fashion while fitting into your favorite bag.  I am able to fit all 3 kids stuff in here.

Finn and Emma Play Gym

Love this bar.  I can move it anywhere in my home or the yard.  So convenient! Especially when you have other small children to chase after!  No one has time to set things up plus this play gym is so sturdy and the wonderfully made frame is finished with non-toxic stains and lacquers.

Halo Bassinet

All three of my babies slept in our room for the first few months.  This bassinet was a lifesaver for the late night feedings.  It swivels, so you are able to get it very close to your bedside.  Plus the sides are mesh which allows you to see baby easily.

Nuna Leaf

This is another item that I was able to use with all three kids.  It’s noise-free design swings with just a gentle push.  The seat also grows with the baby, so all of my kids take a swing!

Bare Beaded Pacifier Clip

I love products that are multi functional.  This pacifier clip is made with natural beads so it’s safe for your little one to chew on while he’s teething.

 

Hoping these help you all out!  Thanks for stopping by!
