Baby Brezza Pro Advanced Formula Mixer: I tell everyone about this magical machine! We used this for our son and found it so easy. I loved the convenience of pressing a button and almost instantly having a bottle. You can choose from different temperature and ounce settings.
Baby Brezza Formula Pro Advanced WiFi Formula Dispenser: This newer model includes WiFi controls. It may seem silly to some, but if you have ever heard a baby scream and cry, you know that even 1 minute can make or break your sanity! You can set up five different bottles that you may give throughout the day and night for it to save. It also alerts you when water or formula is running low.
Dr. Brown’s Formula Mixing Pitcher: Premix your formula for the day in this pitcher, which you can store in your refrigerator until you need it! It’s easy to use and so convenient to make the formula for your baby’s bottles in advance. And the price is very affordable. It holds 250 ml of mixed formula at a time.
Dr. Brown’s Baby Bottles: These bottles are a favorite and are specially designed to reduce spit-up, burping, and gas. It has an anti-colic vent within the design. These bottles work great for breastfed babies and formula-fed babies.
PopYum Baby Bottles: We love these anti-colic formula-making bottles. The design keeps the formula separate from the water before your baby’s feeding. Just press a button with one hand and release the formula so you can feed your little one. We can’t recommend it enough, especially to families who use formula!
Motif Luna Double Electric Breast Pump: This pump is a great double electric breast pump! 5 out of 6 moms said that the Luna gave them “more milk in less time” than the leading pump brands. It features many additional features like the Expression Mode that expresses milk from the breast as efficiently as possible, Massage Mode that helps stimulate let-down by mimicking a baby’s nursing pattern, and an Auto Shut-Off that turns the pump off after 30 minutes of use. We know we’re not the only ones who have dozed off during a pumping session. The Luna only requires a simple setup and has easy customization options, so you can quickly find what works great for you and your baby. We also like that it’s lightweight and weighs 2 pounds.
Haakaa Manual Breast Pump: This product allows you to express milk using natural suction. It is very lightweight and easy to travel with and clean. It’s even dishwasher-safe! The pump also fits breasts of any size! Many mothers use it as a pump and a milk catcher while breastfeeding their babies. Such an excellent tool for breastfeeding moms!
Muslin Burp Cloth: I don’t know who needs to hear this, but most of the “cute” burp cloths don’t work very well. These old-school muslin cloths truly work the best! They are soft and very absorbent. Buy plenty and stash them everywhere in your home.
The Baby’s Brew Warmer Set: If your baby insists on having a warm bottle, it can be difficult when you are on the go. Trying to find a convenient place and a way to heat baby’s bottle is a challenge. That’s where Baby’s Brew warmer comes in handy! It uses a 3A power adapter to charge, and you can easily carry the warmer when traveling.
OXO Tot Bottle & Cup Cleaning Set: Get those bottles and cups next-level clean with this bottle and cup cleaning set. Quickly and thoroughly clean baby bottles, pump parts, sippy cups, (and more) with ease. Non-scratch bristles protect your baby’s feeding essentials, and it comes with a stand to keep your bottle brush away from germs. It also comes with a drying rack that can hold up to 8 bottles and their parts.
Papablic Bottle Electric Steam Sterilizer: I used this to sterilize my son’s bottles, pacifiers, etc. Add a little water to the bottom, place the items inside, and turn it on. It works in a little less than an hour and even dries the items for you!
Hatch Grow Smart Changing Pad and Scale: This is a comfortable and safe place for your baby to be changed! You can also track their weight between doctor visits using this changing pad. It gives parents great peace of mind to know how much their baby has eaten after meals and to see their baby continuously grow. It’s also effortless to clean!
Skip Hop Changing Pad: I used this pad for my son. I love how it feels very sturdy and stationary on top of his dresser. There is a safety belt for extra security. The mobile is a fun touch and helps keep him entertained during changes!
Pipette Baby Wipes: Pipette Baby Wipes have no chemicals or junk in them, so they work well for even sensitive bottoms. They are scent-free, so they won’t irritate your newborn’s skin. These are great for anything you need to clean on baby in general! Hands, face, bum, it can all be safely wiped with Pipette Baby Wipes!
Boudreaux’s Butt Paste: This diaper cream is perfect for any discomfort your little one may experience. It’s made of 8 simple ingredients, including soothing aloe vera and beeswax. It’s also free from dyes, parabens, preservatives, phthalates, petrolatum, and talc. Stick a tube in your diaper bag with all your baby diapering essentials!
Coterie Diapers: The Coterie Diapers have a cloth-like feel that is super soft. They are also designed to stay drier longer, even overnight, to keep your baby comfortable. They are hypoallergenic and are delivered straight to your door.
Ubbi Odor Locking Diaper Pail: This diaper pail is great because it doesn’t need any special bags to use inside of it! A large kitchen trash bag works perfectly. It has a steel design that locks in the odor to keep your room smelling fresh. It also has a childproof lock to keep little hands out of it. It also comes in many different colors!
Baby Bum Brush: This handy tool made of silicone keeps your hands mess-free when applying diaper cream on your baby. It can easily spread creams with its flexible head. The brush can be cleaned with soap and water to keep it germ-free. It also has a suction bottom to keep it in place when not being used!
Ubbi Diaper Caddy: This diaper caddy functions as a convenient portable changing station, with rubberized feet and a handle for easy carrying from place to place.

SNOO Smart Sleeper Bassinet: I used the SNOO with my son and loved it! It looks so sleek and modern. It’s easy to assemble and control. I felt like my son was very safe in it, which helped me sleep easier. It also has an app to monitor your baby’s sleep trends and helps sway them to sleep when they wake. So convenient and less work for tired parents to do.
HALO BassiNest: The HALO BassiNest has a 360 swivel design for convenient middle-of-the-night feeds. It also features sounds and vibrations that will help your baby drift off peacefully to sleep! We love how their patented lowering bedside wall makes it easier to care for baby from bed, especially for breastfeeding and C-section moms.

It allows your child to sleep in the same room as you without being able to see you. It is easy to set up and completely breathable. It also includes a spot for a USB fan and a baby monitor. Your baby or toddler will be able to sleep so much better with this when away from home!

Ollie Swaddle: The Ollie swaddle boasts moisture-wicking fabric and a custom closure for the perfect fit! It comes in an array of beautiful colors you can choose from. It also features an opening at the bottom for easy diaper changes.
Love To Dream Swaddle: Many babies are more comfortable with their arms up when they sleep due to how they were positioned in the womb. The Love To Dream swaddle allows them to do just that! It has a two-way zipper for quick middle-of-the-night diaper changes. You can read our favorite swaddles here!)
The Nested Bean Zen Sack: This sleep sack helps baby sleep through without the Moro reflex startling them. It allows for the arms to be in or out when swaddled. It is gently weighted, echoing your touch, which helps baby feel safe!
Kyte Baby Sleep Sack: Once your baby is ready to move from a swaddle to a sleep sack, you will find many options! Kyte Baby makes one of the softest and coziest ones. They come in different TOGs, which means how warm they keep your baby. I own three and use the 1.0 TOG year-round since I like keeping my house cooler.

Yogasleep Hushh: This portable sound machine can be transported anywhere! I send mine to our son’s school. It gets pretty loud and features a few different sounds. It charges using a USB cord.
Goumimitts: We all know that babies tend to scratch their faces. Not with these! They help protect your baby’s delicate skin from them scratching themselves. We love their design because these mittens will stay put no matter how much your little one wiggles. Their designs also support brain development. The high-contrast patterns are simple enough for your baby to see, process, and be intrigued. Definitely keep a couple of pairs of these on hand for the first couple of months!
Nanit Pro Smart Baby Monitor: This monitor comes with a wall-mounted camera, or you can purchase the floor stand to take it on the go. We love that it also comes with a breathing band to monitor your baby’s breathing, giving parents much peace of mind. Their monitor keeps you in tune with your baby’s sleep, breathing motion, and growth. It’s all tracked on their app. And by tracking your baby’s awake and asleep patterns, Nanit even gives you personalized tips! Parents also really like that the overhead camera allows you to see perfectly where your little one is in their crib at all times.
Owlet Dream Sock: This is an absolute must-have for me! The Owlet Dream sock monitors baby’s sleep quality, heart rate, and oxygen. It gave me such peace of mind, especially once he was in his nursery across the house! There is also a camera they offer, which I also have, that uses a WiFi app to stream the video.
Infant Optics Video Monitor: This monitor includes color and video picture monitoring. The monitor is portable, with a kickstand on the back. It features panning, tilting, and zooming to see baby from any angle!
Eufy Baby Monitor: Don’t miss a thing with this whole-room coverage 330° baby monitor. It offers sharp 720p clarity on a large 5″ monitor and has great night vision. With a 30-hour battery life, you won’t miss a minute of viewing your little one.

Tubby Todd Bath Co
Fridababy Cradle Cap System: No one wants to have cradle cap, but sometimes it just happens! My son had it, and this system cleared it up in days. First, use soap, then loosen the gunk with the brush, and then use the comb to lift it. I highly recommend keeping one of these on hand!
Vicks Rectal Thermometer: Infants must have their temperature taken with a rectal thermometer. It isn’t the most fun thing in the world, but it has to be done sometimes. This thermometer from Vicks was a lifesaver for me when my son was a newborn!
iHealth Wireless No-Touch Thermometer: Once baby is old enough, you can take their temperature with an infrared thermometer. This one has a digital display and is simple to use.

Fridababy Windi: Painful gas is a very common experience for most newborns. It can be difficult for them to pass gas, which is where the Windi comes in. It helps them pass their gas and sometimes can also help with constipation issues. Definitely keep a couple of these on hand!
Fridababy Electric Nasal Aspirator: A congested baby is such a hard thing to experience! I have used this electric nasal aspirator that has multiple speeds and cool lights. My son has now warmed up to it and even thinks it’s kind of funny to use now! It comes apart and is easy to clean as well.

Tubby Todd Bath Co: This 3-step solution for sensitive skin is a must-have for your little one. The baby wash adds moisture instead of stripping it from your baby’s skin, while the lotion moisturizes their skin with gentle ingredients to condition and hydrate. And their all-over ointment is a game changer! It’s perfect for spot-treating dry spots and eczema.
