I know quite a few people right now that are pregnant, and I know when I was pregnant, I loved looking at sample registries or reading posts on favorite baby products. I’m only 7 weeks in, but there are some products that I have that I wouldn’t want to live without. So I thought I’d share them with you guys!
Honestly though, babies don’t need all of the products that everybody says they need. Their needs are quite simple, and love is simply one of the most important. I know we are on a budget, so we had to pick and choose our priorities. So don’t feel like you have to have all of these products- choose what feels right for your little family!
Again, my baby is only 7 weeks old, so I can’t attest to products for older babies yet.
Babies are noisy sleepers! With Levi sleeping in our room right now, this sound machine helps us sleep so much better. It also helps Levi sleep for longer periods of time. If my husband and I go to sleep after him, it doesn’t bother him when we come in the room later or talk in bed. Also, we use the night light on the sound machine for when we are putting him to bed or if he wakes up in the middle of the night and needs to be fed. It is so simple and easy, and you can control the settings on an app on your phone.
I pump about once or twice a day, and I originally used a pump that I received free through insurance. But with that one, I would have to hold the pump in place and couldn’t do anything else. With these Momcozy pumps, I can put them right in my bra and do things around the house if I need to. It’s a game changer!
These are his favorite bottles. We tried another brand, and the flow was too fast for him right now. We love these and the mam pacifiers. This brand is supposed to be for breastfed babies, so I think that’s why he likes it so much.
This pillow helps so much when breastfeeding! It also helps when feeding him a bottle, so my husband and others like to use it too.
We tried the Aden + Anais swaddles when he was first born, but he didn’t like having his arms by his sides. He absolutely loves this swaddle because his arms can be next to his face. He sleeps so well in it!
I love this diaper bag. It’s exactly what I need and I love that it’s a backpack. It keeps my arms free to hold him, push his stroller, or hold his car seat. Plus, it is so much more affordable than many diaper bags.
We love this bassinet! It looks cute since he is sleeping in our room, and he sleeps great in it. It has mesh on the sides so that if he scoots and his face ends up against the sides, he can still breathe. Also, it is portable if we decide to take any vacations or stay somewhere overnight.
8. Bouncy Seat & Play Gym
I don’t have links for these, but they are just normal and nothing fancy. He loves going room to room with me and watching me get things done in his bouncy seat. And he loves laying on the play gym and looking up at the hanging toys.
Like I said, Levi is still in our room, but we have already set up this baby monitor in his room and I absolutely love it! It’s wifi free which was important to me, and you can also talk to him through it if you need/want to. It’s a little pricier, but we wanted a nice one that could become split screen with the purchase of another camera for future kids.
10. Nontoxic Baby Products
This stuff is amazing for everything! We love it for diaper rash cream or any dry skin/rashes, as well as nipple cream for me.
This oil is prediluted and perfect for rubbing on his tummy if he has gas or is constipated. It usually works right away!
We love their wipes, diaper rash cream, and shampoo/baby wash.
So far we have only tried the baby lotion, but we love it! We also have the baby shampoo/body wash that we can’t wait to try.
Well, there is my top 10 favorite baby products! I’m sure as he gets older, there is more that I could add to the list. Maybe I’ll make another post in a few months if this is helpful!
If you have kids, what are your favorite baby products?
Until next time,
