There are a ton of to-dos when prepping for baby’s arrival, and shopping for all the baby essentials is not least among them. From setting up the nursery to gathering the gear for sleeping, eating and diapering, it’s easy to keep busy buying baby must-haves. However, you shouldn’t forget about things that will make your life easier and here they are 🙂
These aren’t just for swaddling, friends. Need additional shade over the stroller? A makeshift changing pad? A nursing cover? A stylish baby toga after a surprise blowout? You’ve got everything covered and under control with one of these in your bag.
It is way more practical than the standard one-shoulder baby bags. It has space for the essentials: wipes, diapers, a spare onesie, snacks and even three bottles, a toy, and a pacifier.
Those first few weeks of newborn snuggles are just the best. But when you’re ready to feel like a human again and venture out into the world, babywearing is a smart way to snag freedom and cuddles at the same time. It also a great chance to drink this cup of coffee, finally.
With this lovely thing and babies in their beds, you can get some of that elusive sleep all those experts talk about.
These will keep babies (both human and fur) from digging inside your sockets or trying to put something there.
This lovely bib has a large pocket at the bottom that’ll catch food before it hits the floor. This easy to wash, won’t stain, and can be used up to billion times.
This small invention will let you can easily rinse your baby off, without getting water or soap in their eyes. Made of soft silicone it will sit flat against the baby’s forehead to prevent spilling.
The high back of the bowl prevents food from overflowing and keeps excess food in it. It’s made of silicone, so it’s soft enough that it can double as a teething toy and won’t hurt your baby.
If you don’t want your back to fall off, tight muscles, or even a spasm by the end of the day, this is an absolute must-have for breastfeeding. Plus, it makes a great pillow for your baby.
You will need those when you’re out and about and need to keep dirty diapers contained. They’re perfect for throwing away dirty diapers (it’s especially courteous if you’re using public trash cans), or keeping blown-out onesies contained.
