She shares her 5 favorite products for every new baby (she is on baby #3 now) Share in the comments what YOUR must have products are too!

In a few weeks we will be welcoming baby boy 3 into our family. As we start to prepare for his arrival, I’m realizing there only a few items that I really need.

These are my top 5 MUST-HAVE baby items.

1. Baby Carrier – Wraps, Slings, Structured Carriers, etc. – there are many from which to choose. I have several different kinds that I use but one thing is consistent about each of them: they help me hold the baby keeping my hands free to do other things like taking care of other children… or eat.
2. Nursing Accessories – My Brestfriend, nursing bras, Medela Double Electric Pump, nipple cream – these are all lifesavers for a breastfeeding mama. I will invest good money into products that help make feeding baby easier and more efficient. If you plan on breastfeeding I highly suggest spending the extra money on quality products because it’s TOTALLY worth it.

3. Swaddle Blankets – Swaddling baby keeps them warm and snuggly. Keeping baby warm and snuggly helps them feel safe. When baby feels safe they sleep better. Therefore a swaddled baby = a sleeping baby! WIN. We use regular swaddling blankets as well as some various wraps or wearable blankets. (Each baby is different so having a variety of swaddles available is nice.)
4. Safe Car Seat – If you plan on ever leaving your house you need a car seat. You don’t have to spend a fortune on a good car seat but I do recommend buying a new car seat because you never know the history of a car seat and saving a few dollars is never worth risking your child’s life. Also, if you already own a car seat, make sure that it hasn’t expired and is still safe to use.
5. Aspirator – Keeping your baby breathing is a pretty high priority and using an aspirator is essential. Babies hate it but it works!

Everyone has his or her preferences and these are mine. I like to keep things simple but I certainly take advantage of the many extravagant baby items we own. I think anything that makes caring for baby easier is a winner in my book.

What is your must-have baby item?

    this is truly a MUST HAVE list. babies don’t need much in terms of clothing and toys and frills. they need basics to keep them safe, warm and healthy, good list
