Okay guys, I have had a ton of people ask me what my go to baby products are so I have put together a list of things that are essential for my little family. You can purchase all of these for under $200 at Target! Please note that King is my first little one and these are just the things that work for us and we love. Different things work for different people and these are tried and true to our little family!
We were very blessed at our baby shower and received amazing gifts with recommendations from a lot of mommas. I am so grateful for every piece of advice whether we used it or not. Not everything works for everyone and every little babe is different. I want to share some pieces of advice/products we love with you! Whether you use them or not, it doesn’t matter to me. Find what works best for you and what your favorites are and share them with other mommas. We are all mommas together, so let’s share our knowledge with each other and see if we can make the journey a little easier on each other.
Huggies Little Snugglers: We love these diapers especially now that King is a little bigger. (Note that they do run bigger than Pampers). We have had hardly any blow outs with them and they keep him dry all night long so we don’t have to wake up to change his diaper. We absolutely love them!
Swaddle Blankets: We can not keep these bad boys clean fast enough. We use them for seriously everything. They cover him up while he sleeps (he has to have his face covered to fall asleep) and they don’t worry me as much to put over his face since they are thin. We use them to put on the ground for him to play, as a burp cloth, in the carseat, seriously everything. You need these in your life and don’t you worry, they get softer after every wash!
Boon Grass: This is probably one of my most favorite things that we have. Where I exclusively pump we have a lot of parts and bottles we are drying all the time. This holds so many bottles and all my pump parts. Plus I love that it is not an eye sore on my counter. We also have a few of the accessories that we hang the bottle nipples and my bottle caps on to dry. This will save your life and your counter space!
Avent Bottles: We didn’t test/try any other bottles than these. Everyone we chatted with about bottles told us these were their favorite so we went with it! We haven’t had any problems at all with them and King does great with them!
Soothies Binkys: This is the binky that they gave King at the hospital and we have just gone with it since. I eventually want to change him to other binkys, but for now these work great! He takes them with no problems at all.
Nose Frieda: Seriously, my kid has boogers galore. I’m not sure why and don’t worry I will be asking the doctor next week when we go in. For now though, this thing is a life saver! It seemed super gross at first, but it works like a gem. It gets massive boogers out of his nose and I love that I control how hard it is sucking. This is a must have especially if you have a baby with a cold.
Huggies Pure and Natural Wipes: We love these wipes. King hasn’t had any problems with sensitive skin so we have been using all different brands of wipes that we received as gifts, but these seem to be our favorite hands down. They are soft and damp enough that they clean him off easily.
Diaper Champ: We received this from my aunt and we love it! It takes regular garbage bag so none of that buying the dumb refills for other diaper pails. It keeps the stink all inside of it and King’s room never gets stinky. We actually just put grocery bags inside of it so we take it out more frequently.
Puj Flyte Bath: King is starting to out grow this and it makes me so sad. We absolutely love this tub! It keeps him covered in water so he doesn’t get cold, folds up to be put away, it is soft/squishy enough to be comfy for him, but holds its shape, and it has drain holes to keep fresh water in it all the time. What more could you need from a baby tub!?
I hope that these recommendations can help you in getting ready for your little one or if you are giving a baby shower gift. Remember, these are just the things that we love and are tried and true to us! XO
