There are some things that really make a difference when you are navigating through those first few months as a parent. Anything that makes caring for your little one easier is a win! I know adjusting to life with a newborn can be difficult, so I want to share the items that I believe are the best baby products for new moms.
I love the Chicco Playard because it grows with your baby. It has a changing station, bassinet, and playpen, all-in-one! I used it in our living room at first since Artie’s changing table was upstairs in his nursery. Once he grew out of his bassinet we used this one until he was ready to move to his crib. The playard bassinet is much larger than a standard bassinet. Now the playard is back in the living room so Artie can use the playpen! All options are SO EASY to assemble and disassemble for traveling.
I love Dr. Brown’s bottles and this sterilizer really gave me peace of mind. It is so easy to use! Just fill it up, add water, and microwave for 5 minutes! You can never be too clean when you have a newborn!
I really liked this bassinet because of it’s special features. First, the swivel was SUPER helpful during the first few weeks, while I was recovering from my C-section. It made caring for my baby from bed much easier. Second, Artie loved the vibration and music, which helped him fall asleep faster. It also has a convenient nightlight included for those middle of the night feedings. One downside is this bassinet is a little big for a tiny newborn but I stumbled upon this insert once Artie had already grown out of it. I think it would have helped him feel more comfortable during those first few weeks.
This travel system has everything you need for a newborn. The carrier snaps into the car-seat as well as the stroller so you can move your sleeping baby without disturbing them. Once your baby grows out of the carrier, you can use the forward facing option on the stroller.
Babies love bouncers! What makes this one different, in addition to the music and vibration features, is the hanging toys. You can remove them for when you want your baby to bounce himself to sleep, but Artie loved watching and smiling at the toys. They definitely helped keep him entertained while I was doing chores around the house!
This noise machine is perfect for our jungle themed nursery. It is cute but also comes with several great sounds and a nightlight! The lullabies help Artie fall asleep and the white noise helps him stay asleep!
Artie started enjoying this activity gym at two months old and grew to love it as he became more mobile. This is another item that grows with baby; we now use it as a ball pit and removed the hanging toys so Artie can play with them on his play-mat. It is TRULY 5-in-1!
I used and really loved all of these items and believe they are the best baby products for new moms! They helped me through the newborn phase and I hope they help you too!
