So, now that Ashlyn and I are both expecting new babies, we have definitely started thinking more about what we are going to need when they are born, and so many people have given us some great advice of baby must haves! Ashlyn, along with some of my other sisters threw an amazing baby shower for me this weekend, and I got everything that my new baby will need when she is born! We have great friends and family who give us lot of tips on what things have worked for them, and what items them recommend for new born babies. Here are a few of my top favorite items I got from my baby shower, and items that friends and family of Ash and I have told us were musts for them!
Boppy Nursing Pillow
Im really excited about this pillow because it can be used for multiple purposes! You can nurse with it, use it to cradle the baby while your busy, and the baby can use it up to 9+ months. :) Anything to give momma a little hands free moment is at the top of my list!
All of our mom friends have said that this is a must! Not only does it give your breasts a little break from the baby, but it also allows someone else to feed the baby when you are not available.
Infant to Toddler Rocker
This is one gift we have also heard is one of the best life savers for new moms! Babies love to be held and rocked, and this does everything in one! Mommas need some 'me' time also, and these rockers sooth the baby, and keep them calm while you check some things off your household chore list!
These are definitely a must must! Most babies are going to go through two to three of these a day so you'll want to have at least an extra handful of these lying around.
Noise Cancelation Machine
Babies are use to the noise from inside the womb which is not complete silence. Have you ever noticed that you sleep better in the car or on airplanes because of the natural humming sound that they make? This is exactly like that and this will help sooth your baby to sleep, and the great thing about it is that its portable so you can take it anywhere!
The items listed above are some of our tops favorites, but there are also a lot of other important items every new born will need. Here is a list of some other important must haves to keep in mind when you are planning for your first baby. :)
-odor-less natural laundry detergent
-fitted sheets for crib
-infant car seat
-rattles or other baby toys
-syringe for sucking mucus
