With the upcoming arrival of my little man we thought it would be fun to put together a baby registry post of some of my favorite baby things. With this being my second little one it was nice having an idea of what I would really want and need versus with your first when you have no clue. I have compiled a list of some of my favorite products and companies that are tried and true! If you have a little one on the way I hope this helps you find some things that you will like as well.
1. Petunia Pickle Bottom Pathway Pack
I had a Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag with my first baby and completely fell in love with it. Not only is it incredibly functional but also super cute! It makes carrying a diaper bag fun. I loved that I could carry it around like a purse or I could wear it as a back pack when I needed an extra hand, which we all know you can always use with a baby. This was a definite must when I was putting together what I would need for this upcoming little one!
2. Native Wilds Nest
This is a multi use product that I know is going to be amazing to have. This ultra-stylish scarf functions as a nursing cover, car seat cover, shopping cart cover, and baby blanket. It is made from silky soft, hypoallergenic bamboo which is absolutely heavenly. It also has a built-in pocket that makes storing your entire Nest a breeze and keeps track of your or your baby’s essentials while you’re on-the-go.
3. BabyHome Dream Bassinet
This bassinet truly is a dream! It is super light weight which makes it great to be able to move from room to room but also super sturdy. Its aluminum structure gives it a modern, sophisticated look complemented by removable and washable fabric. It has three different positions so you can wheel it around, have it in a locked-fixed position, or use it as a rocker to comfort and put baby to sleep.
4. DockATot Deluxe
My first little one was the very best baby with the exception of being a not so great sleeper, in fact she still isn’t. So when I came across DockATot and it’s claim to helping your baby sleep I knew I had to have it! I read testimonial after testimonial of how their baby wouldn’t sleep for very long or unless they were being held and then they received their DockATot and like a miracle their baby was sleeping hours on end peacefully. Multifunctional and multitasking, the Dockatot Deluxe offers a safe and comfy spot that lets baby rest, lounge, play, cuddle, do tummy time and get diaper changes. Deluxe docks are lightweight and portable, allowing for easy travel. I can not wait to use this and see how much it helps us adjust with a new baby in the house.
5. Freshly Picked Bring Home Baby Bundle
I have been a long time fan of Freshly Picked moccasins! My daughter has owned several pairs and I knew that this little one would have to have them too. When I saw that they came out with a baby bundle package I knew I had to have it. This bundle comes with crib moccasins, the sweetest little swaddle, and a cozy little hat for baby. It also has a super soft robe and comfy socks for momma. All this comes with a matching diaper bag for carrying convenience and is wrapped in a bag designed to be used as a laundry bag, how perfect is that! This will be absolutely perfect for our hospital stay.
6. Orbit G3 Infant Car Seat + Base
Last summer we were lucky enough to get the Orbit G3 Stroller with Sidekick Stroller Board, so when we found out we had another little one on the way we knew we had to have the matching, attachable car seat. This car seat has too many amazing features to list them all but some of my favorites are the back-saving convenience of a rotating base so you don’t have to reach over to get to or see baby, a soft carrier handle for ergonomic transport, a DeepCraddle Side-Impact Protection zone, and no-rethread, easy clean upholstery that will be a breeze to clean when needed. This is like the Mercedes-Benz of car seats I tell ya!
7. Londin Lux Coming Home Outfit
When bringing home baby there are always lots of pictures taken to document the occasion and consequently it’s fun to have a super cute outfit to put your little one in. When I came across Londin Lux’s coming home outfits I knew I had to to have one. Not only are they super cute but when I received it in the mail I was blown away at how soft the material was. Perfect for putting your newborn infant in. I can’t wait to see what our little man looks like in his.
8. Puj Splash Newborn Gift Set
We have been long time lovers of Puj and their darling owner Katie so when I saw that they had a newborn gift set I knew I wanted one. This 9 piece set comes with a compact infant tub that will fit in any sink, a super soft hooded infant towel that features two silicone tabs that interlock around your neck, allowing you to pick up your baby with two free hands, 3 clever grippy hooks, and a set of 3 ultra-soft washcloths. I know with this pack it will make bath time a breeze for everyone involved.
9. Solly Baby Wrap
I am a huge advocate of baby wearing, I wore my first baby all the time until she got too big to do so. So when I found out I was having another little one I knew that a baby wrap was at the top of my list for things I needed. I used other baby wraps with my first but always told myself when I have another I was going to invest in a Solly Baby Wrap. It’s super soft light weight material is perfect for keeping you and baby cool year round, which I am looking forward to since I plan on wearing him a lot during the hot summer months.
10. 4moms mamaRoo
With Scarlett I had a dear friend let me borrow her mamaRoo and we both fell in love with it! So when I knew we were having another I knew that it was worth the investment to buy one of our own. It’s the only infant seat that mimics parents natural motions and with 5 different movements your little one is bound to find one he or she likes and will never get bored. It also comes with a variety of soothing white noise sounds or you can enable bluetooth and play your favorite songs for baby. It also is super easy to clean up, which is a must with babies!
11. Aden + Anais Silky Soft Swaddles
These swaddles are a must have in my book! I had them with Scarlett and she actually still uses them to this day. They are amazingly soft with their luxurious fabric and they are also super light weight and breathable which makes them ideal for anytime of the year. They wash up great and are super durable that makes them last forever. They are definitely a go to baby product for me.
12. Tubby Todd BASICS Bundle
Finding the right baby products to put on your babies soft sensitive skin can be quite the daunting task with all the chemicals out there but Tubby Todd has taken the worry out of it! All products are formulated with 100% natural, plant-based ingredients and are great for sensitive skin, perfect and extra gentle for the tiniest newborn and toddler faces. This bundle comes with 6 essential products: Hair & Body Wash, Everyday Lotion, Bubble Bath, Baby Fresh Spray, All Over Ointment, and Dream Cream. I can’t wait to use these products and I may or may not sneak some for myself.
13. Madeline’s Box Leather Braided Pacifier Clip with Natursutten Pacifier
When it comes to pacifiers it can be the perfect comforter next to momma herself but when having to worry about them falling on the floor and getting all sorts of nasty germs it can turn them into a bit of a headache. But with the right pacifier clip they can be a dream sent! However, it was hard for me to find ones that were cute until I came across Madeline’s Box. These leather braided clips not only go with every outfit but are super cute and durable. I also love that not only can you use them for pacifiers but it’s also great for teething toys. I also love the Natursutten pacifiers which are softer than silicone, and are very hygienic because they are molded in one piece without joints or cracks where dirt and bacteria can accumulate. They also are ideal for nursing babies because the relatively large shield is designed to gently touch your baby’s nose and give him the same secure feeling he experiences during breastfeeding.
14. MonBaby Smart Button
Sleep is such a precious commodity when it comes to newborns, not only for them but especially for you. So with all the worries of SIDS and other things that can happen it can be a nerve wracking time for parents. So to have a device to watch your little one when you can’t was something I was all about! MonBaby is an award-winning baby monitor that snaps onto any article of a child’s clothing, just like a button. It tracks your baby’s breathing movements and sleep position, transmitting important alerts directly to your smartphone. It gives peace of mind to anxious parents and improves sleep for the whole family.
15. Cake Maternity Nursing Camisole with Lounge Maternity Pants
Having the right pajamas in the hospital to recover from child birth was an absolute must. Finding ones that were both comfy and cute is not always easy but then I came across Cake Maternity. I went with the nursing camisole and lounge maternity pants thinking they looked cozy and perfect for easy access nursing. When I received them in the mail I was blown away at how incredibly soft the material was and had to try them on right then and there and let me tell you, I did not want to take them off! These pajamas are amazing!! It’s one of the many things I’m looking forward to having after the baby comes. Not only are they perfect for the hospital but will be great for lounging around home and feeling some what cute as my body heals from the trauma of child birth.
