Whats In My Cart Wednesday – Newborn Essentials

For this week’s edition of What’s in my cart Wednesday – I’m talking about our favorite “Newborn Essentials” for Everett. These are the things we’ve used the most in his first 2 weeks. I’m hoping that any first time moms out there or moms with difficult babies find this list helpful:

BUMBO – So Everett is too little for this right now but we used this EVERY DAY with Kenzie as soon s she could sit up and still use it every morning while I make breakfast. It’s on our kitchen island so she feels involved and frees me up to do dishes, cook, feed her, get snacks, and generally have my hands free. SUPER Recommend.

Wubbanub – We love these Pacifiers and having the animal on the end make them so much easier to find. We have 4 between our two kids and love them.

Diaper Backpack – I’ve talked about this bag before but it is so well designed! Areas for clothes/bibs/toys, snacks, diapers & wipes, bottles, Mama’s stuff, and it’s so easy to see into. We really love it and the backpack keeps my hands and hips free for kiddos.

Rocker – We love this vibrating rocker for the kids – it helps them nap when needed and keeps them contained during dinner when they are too small for a high chair but you want them near the table. It also has adjustable heights so it can be low to the ground or all the way up with the chairs at the table.

SleepSacks – A lot of hospitals use them now so you’re probably pretty familiar but its basically a dummy proof swaddle. Swaddling a doll is easy – a moving squirming baby? Not so much so we love these for nighttime. Plus we always feel our kids sleep better in them. You can do hands in or out depending on your kids preference (kenz only wanted hands in but E HATES his hands being bound and wants them out).

Breast Pump – I think this brand is the best. I used it with Kenzie and Everett. For me I choose to pump so Dad can help with feedings and night time events, plus it gives me more freedom to go do things during the day. Totally personal preference but I love this one.

Dock-a-tot – They’re expensive. Sorry bout ya. But seriously the best. Our kids slept SO well in them, its easier to move them around while they’re sleeping (for example if we’re relocating form bedroom to couch we pick it up with them in it and they can stay asleep), and I don’t have to worry about them rolling over. Gave me peace of mind and helped them relax during the night.
