I’ve tried A LOT of baby products. I’m a mom of two little ones and definitely love trying out new things. My baby registry with my first was HUGE. I registered for everything. And let’s just say, it was too much. A lot of things you are “supposed” to register for, you don’t end up using. I learned my lesson, and with my second babe, my registry was a LOT smaller. Out of all the items I’ve used, I wanted to share my absolute favorites with you. These have been our MUST-HAVES. While each item has been very used the last 7 months, they all each have magic moments associated with them. I will be sharing some mamalogues with you as well as products!
Philips Avent Bottles // I absolutely love these bottles because they are the most natural way to bottle feed. In fact, the bottles mimic breastfeeding! When Gracie asked me if she could feed Donovan some milk for the first time, you better believe I ran to the cabinet and grabbed a Philips Avent bottle. He made the switch from breastfeeding to bottle feeding in a snap. No hesitation at all, actually. Gracie doesn’t always ask to feed Donovan, but when she does I’m so thankful that we have these bottles!
Philips Avent Pacifiers // These are THE BEST pacis! Did you know?! 9 out of 10 babies accept Philips Avent pacifiers. And this is so true for us! It’s so hard to pick out the right pacifier, but let me tell you – these are the ones you need. My husband knows these are the quickest way to soothe Donovan so he actually asked me to buy one for every room. That way, we never waste time looking for one! LOL
NogginStik // This rattle is Donovan’s favorite toy! His face lights up when he sees it + it always stops a meltdown in it’s tracks! This toy always reminds me of when Donovan was born. I think Gracie thought Donovan was going to come out as a toddler, ready to play. That was obviously not the case. But she always would rattle the NogginStik in his face, even from birth. Maybe that’s why he loves it so much.
Charlie Crane Paris Rocker // This rocker is not only GORGEOUS and matches our home decor perfectly, it’s also incredibly useful for a baby age 0-6 months. I love how easy it is to move from room to room + Donovan loves how comfy it is!
Savor Keepsake Box // This keepsake box is so unique + perfect for a new mom! It’s the perfect place to put those sentimental items like baby’s first hat or the hospital bands. Every now and then, when I’m feeling so emotional about how fast the kids are growing, I pull out my Savor box and simply hold the items in my hands. Just soaking in the memories. Is it weird to do this once a week? I’m asking for a friend ;).
Snuggle Me Organic // This baby lounger was SO incredibly helpful when it came to naps + sleep. It hugs baby so they feel like they are being held, therefore helping them sleep better!
So, there you have it! Our top picks for baby’s registry along with a few of my favorite #mamalogues. What are you MUST-HAVE’s for baby’s first year? Share your mamalogues with me, too! I love hearing sappy mama stories!
