I have a couple of friends who are pregnant so this post is for you and anyone else that is awaiting their beautiful bundle of joy
Here's my Top 10 list of baby must have items
Disclaimer: Every Mom and baby are different but this is what worked best for me and my babies. Mommyhood is one big learning curve, hope this list works for you : )
My daughter who is 4 and a half still uses hers at night
This works better than a Boppy for breastfeeding as its more solid and baby can concentrate on eating than falling asleep
For breast fed babies who switch to bottles Dr Browns periodically. Dr Browns bottles does a good job to mimic the breast flow
For those midnight diaper changes and you don't want to startle baby with a cold wipe
For those 2am feeds and you don't want to walk to the kitchen. Just store your bottle in a bag with a cool pack by your dresser and then place in bottle warmer when ready.
We had one upstairs in the babies room and one by the changing table downstairs too
For winter babies - all you really need for the first few months are these blanket sleepers with easy button fasteners
Hold the cute clothes until past 6 months. For the summer months onesies were a staple in my household
Both my kids were big pacifier users in the first 12 months. A binkie clip is a must as babies love to throw and then cry...
My kids didn't like baby swings but loved the baby Papasan. I must admit with my firstborn he slept in this at night sometimes (LOL). As a new Mom you have to realize that all good notions and intentions may not be the best "Whatever works" became my motto.
What worked for you?
