With a new baby comes a lot of shopping for must have baby items. Once you start browsing the selection of products designed for infants you will quickly realize there are almost too many options. When I had my son I got caught up in the hoopla and ended up spending a lot of money on items we didn't need.
To help you save money and stock up on the true must have items for baby I have complied a list for you of the items that I use and love.
Nuk Orthodontic Bottles, these are fantastic. My daughter prefers the shape of the nipple and I like that these bottles are gentle on her tummy and she is not as gassy when she uses Nuk Orthodontic Bottles.
Baby Wipes- We love Huggies One and Done Wipes. These are thicker than Pampers wipes, they smell great and they are gentle on baby's soft skin.
Infant Gas Relief Drops- sometimes baby needs a little relief and not having these drops on hand is a mistake! Don't let baby suffer from gas pain!
Munchkin Baby Bottle Brush- These are the best that I have tried. The brush is sturdy yet flexible, it is easy to use and store and they are affordably priced.
Summer Infant Swaddle Me Microfleece- Much safer and easier to use than a receiving blanket. My daughter sleeps like a log when she is in her Swaddle Me.
Nasal Bulb Syringe- Every home with a baby needs one or two of these. Snot happens.
Diapers- stock up on diapers! You will use thousands of diapers so there is no worry about this being wasted money. We like Pampers Baby Dry diapers and Luv's.
Sleep n Plays- baby will wear pajamas a lot! You need at least 6 sleep n plays.
Pacifiers- Sleeping with a pacifier reduces the risk of SIDS and are a very soothing item for baby. My children preferred the Nuk brand. Get like 5 pack of each size because you will want one on hand at all times.
Video Baby Monitor- We have a lorex 3 in 1 and we love it. It makes checking on baby a breeze.
I hope this list of gear helps you stock up on things you will need with a new baby.
