Best Products for a Newborn

Published: September 5, 2014

There are so many products on the market that are geared towards new parents. After buying and using what feels like all of them, I have decided to make a list of the ones I found most useful. What worked for me, may not work for you but these products are great for pretty much anyone! Be sure to add these to your baby registry! 

  1. Rock and Play Sleeper by Fisher Price

    This inclined sleeper is the most useful item to have with a newborn. It has a vibration feature that is very soothing to new babies. It also doesn't lay flat so it prevents the baby from choking on spit up. Its also basket shaped, for lack of a better term. It hugs the baby and makes him/her feel safe and snug. Its also very light and portable. It easily folds in half to take on a trip. It is easily moved around the house so the baby can be cozy in any room! 

  2. Aden and Anais Muslin Swaddling Blankers

    These are by far the best baby blankets. They are super light weight so theres no worry of suffocation. They are large for easy swaddling. They are so soft and snuggly. I still use these and my son has become very attached to them. They come in cute prints for boys and girls. I found myself using these blankets for everything! 

  3. Moby Wrap

    This awesome piece of fabric was a life saver! Essentially thats all it is, a super long piece of jersey knit fabric. Following proper instructions, you are able to wrap yourself up and hold baby, hands free! If you have a baby that wants to be held constantly, like mine did, this will be a total lifesaver. Its a little intimidating at first, but once you get the hang of it, its super easy to use. There are a few ways to use it. Babies like to be held close and feel snug. This product accomplishes both of these things while saving moms sanity!

As a stay at home, first time mom, these 3 items made my day so much easier. Of course there are other more necessary or well know items but these 3 helped the most. I found the Rock and Play to be the most useful for my baby. I used it at nap time, bed time, and he played in it while he was awake. Having a new baby is stressful enough, let these products help you out!
