Baby Must Have Items!
Are you a new mom? Or expecting your first child? I am due in just a little under 12 weeks and let me tell you the hardest part has been preparing and making sure that we have everything we need!
So many different moms can tell you of an abundance of items that you will need, and we just had to sit down and make a list of the essentials, because trying to get everything that everyone tells you that you will need can become overwhelming and very expensive.
We knew that we needed a baby monitor and being that our nursery is upstairs in our house and our bedroom is downstairs we wanted to get one that had a clear picture and was easy to use.
The Levana Willow is an amazing option if you’re looking for a great baby monitor to keep your eyes on your child when you’re not in the same room. It offers a 5 inch Touchscreen, we have tested it and its very easy to use and has a great clear picture. This model also offers lullabies so we actually did not have to purchase a sound machine for the nursery!
I love that the camera has a silent tilt camera that allows us to move it from where we are located and it doesn’t make any sudden noises to wake a sleeping baby. The 12 hour battery life keeps a charge all throughout the night and the led night vision is invisible to the baby so you don’t have to worry about any extra light in the room to keep them awake!
Another product that is a must have for newborns is Bottles! There are so many on the market and its so hard to pick one!
The Tommee Tippee is an award winning brand and they offer a bottle that is the original breast like nipple. It helps a baby to make the transition from breast to bottle very easily. With all of our intentions being on breast feeding but also knowing that our child will start daycare in 10 weeks we are so glad that this bottle is an option for us.
They also offer advanced anti-colic bottles that help in reducing colic symptoms. They can help with gas, less spit up, and less fussing. With the breast like nipple they have a guaranteed acceptance. The thing that I really love about these is that they change color with the temperature of the milk so you don’t have to worry about it being too hot for the baby.
A great pacifier is something you will always want to have on hand and tommee tippee makes these as well. They have night time ones that actually glow in the dark and range in age all the way up to 36 months. They also offer a line of spoons that you can start introducing at 4 months and up. They are specifically made for tender gums and they are dishwasher safe!
These are just a few must have items that you will need for your child! Do you have any advice or must have items for new moms? We would love to know of them!
