When I was first pregnant with Cohen I was constantly worried about having all the baby essentials. It was overwhelming to say the least. There are a million different types of strollers, clothes, bottles, things for sleeping, swinging, lounging, you name it. I tried to narrow things down with suggestions from friends who had babies, but I learned a lot more once Cohen came. I’ve previously posted a short list of a few favorites, but my friend is expecting a baby this summer, so I’ve been working on a master list of suggestions for her and figured I might as well share it with you mamas-to-be out there too! Many items are personal preferences based on you and your baby, but there are definitely some things I wish I had known we’d need over other things I registered for simply because they were cute or pretty!
We also used a sound spa every night and during his naps to help him fall asleep faster. That was a lifesaver and of course, it needed batteries that somehow we didn’t have on hand.
Besides having the obvious items like diapers, wipes, clothes, and a carseat, having batteries available for all the extra essentials was definitely wonderful and something I would recommend to every mom and new mom out there! Cohen is the best thing that’s ever happened to me and I love being his mama and spending time with him everyday. Of course, having a few extra baby supplies that help soothe him and put him to sleep are always beneficial. A happy baby is a happy mama.
