I wanted to round up some of my favorite newborn products we have used over the last 3 and half weeks! I would by no means call myself a pro but during my pregnancy I found it so helpful to read what people had to say and their opinions and reviews on products. I felt this helped me make decisions with what I wanted and what I should and shouldn’t splurge on. These are also awesome items to add to a baby registry since a lot of them are on the pricey side!
Snoo Bassinet– okay this one is quite an investment BUT I will say this was worth every penny for us! We feel really safe putting Luke to sleep in here every night since they have built in swaddles and are attached to the sides of the bassinet so they cant roll over. There is also an option to rent this bassinet but we ended up purchasing it since it has a really good resale value + if we do have more children we would be able to use it again.
Uppa Baby Vista Stroller– we LOVED that this stroller came with a bassinet attachment for when babies are small we actually use this as a second bassinet downstairs during the day (they also sell a bassinet stand that goes with this) and this also converts into a double stroller. It also is very easy to use + fold up and super durable!
Nuna Pipa lite lx Carseat– I tried out a few carseats and ended up going with this one because it is the lightest carseat out there. I had trouble lifting most carseats that I couldn’t imagine lifting one up with a baby in there. This one is 5 lbs (most others are around 10 lbs) and also has an adapter to hook in with the Uppa Baby Stroller.
Mamaroo Swing– I heard mixed things about this swing but we love it! It really depends on your baby but this swing has so many settings and even a built in noise machine that you can hook up to you phone
Owlet Sock– This is another item I was told I didn’t “need” but we have loved this so far! Being a new mom and first time parent you worry about your baby non-stop. This helps to ease some of those worries. It monitors the baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels using a little sock that is rechargeable.
Dock a tot– a baby lounger is an absolute must have! I love how pretty these ones are and also love that I can easily move it from room to room.
Portable sound machine– I actually purchased two of these so I can keep one in the car and one in the house. We have this attached to the bassinet we keep for naps downstairs. This was also something that was on my hospital bag list!
Love to Dream Swaddle– we tried out a lot of swaddles and this one has been a favorite! Its easy to zip up and Luke loves it! It also allows for baby’s hands to be up instead of tied down which some baby’s prefer.
Baby Brezza- okay this thing is AMAZING. If you plan to formula feed at all this thing is the best. This makes nighttime feeds sooo easy. This is a great item to include on your registry!
