Aside from the big ticket items (bassinet, change table, stroller), Yamomgee has compiled a list of newborn essentials. Happy shopping soon-to-be mamas!
Move room to room with a portable baby organizer. One of the best purchases for breastfeeding, diaper changes and playing anywhere.
We've tried a variety of nose bulbs and cleaners, the Nose Frida is by far the most efficient (and grossest concept). Don't worry, there are filters.
Our favorite baby hygiene products are the Mustela brand. Between the creams, cleansers and this saline solution, you can't go wrong with this line.
Do it all blankie
Swaddle, tummy time, clean-up, cover-up, and playtime, the 100% cotton muslin Aden & Anais Swaddle gets softer with every wash.
Halo is an Angel
Sleep sacks are pricy, especially when trying to figure out which one your baby likes. We have bought 6 different types of wearable blankets and the Halo is by far the best.
Long zippers to the rescue when changing your squirmy new baby. Top safety tab prevents scratches while the footsies mean no lost socks.
It took a lot of trial and error to find the brand and model of diapers that our hospital used. These don't leak, make the nursery smell great, and fit like a dream. They're not to be confused with Prima Air that leak on us.
For the Booty
Every newborn list includes these 99.9% water wipes and for a good reason. Long gone are the super fragrant wipes that our parents used.
Like the snot wetter solution, the Mustela brand has a wonderful line of baby hygiene products; from the No-Rinse Cleansing Water when the umbilical cord is still attached to the Cleasing Gel and Body Lotion for bath time.
One Size Fits All Cloths
Most cloths are too small to make a difference, but these burping, feeding, washing, changing cloths are the perfect size and price for all.
Try finding the soother in the middle of the night during a feeding or in the bassinet. These glow in the dark Philips Avent pacifiers will solve that problem. Now to get the baby to stay asleep...hmm. Note: doctors recommend using after the first month.
This free App offers sleep, feeding, pumping, and diaper tracking, with an optional premium purchased add-on if you'd like help with sleep training. This was a god-send when trying to remember when baby last ate or slept or which side he fed from.
Short-Sleeves with Snaps
These H&M bodysuits were, by far, our most used newborn item. One of the biggest regrets was buying anything that didn't have snaps and had to go over the baby's head. These were perfect for daytime and under swaddles.
Although we purchased the Nuna Leaf, we would suggest buying a different swing. Ours is only sometimes helpful after buying the pricey Nuna Wind (the 6-speed motor) and the Nuna Toy Bar from abroad. Get a built-in motorized swing that helps free your hands.
Fisher-Price Soothe and Go
Yes, a phone is very capable of replacing this lovely little giraffe, however, this wee guy will save your phone battery and any waves emanating from your phone to your little one.
Whether it's the Sleepyhead or any other babynest listed in 'My Faves' section, you MUST get this multi-fuctional miracle worker. Baby explores their surroundings, sleeps and plays (when paired with the play bar, see below).
This toy bar entertains newborns with its contrasting twists. Watch baby start focusing on the bar and then the hanging toys. My only criticism of this product is that the toy bar is sold separately from the hanging toy set (see next product). Currently sold out.
Hanging Fuzzy Pals
As mentioned before, you can buy the Sleepyhead or similar products, but I highly recommend getting a pod that has a entertaining/engaging accessory. It also helps to get said accessories in black and white.
My parents swore by Gripe Water for all baby problems from gas/colic to teething/hiccups. So it was a relief to find these here in Turkey for our baby's gas.
Turkish mother's swear by a warm tummy and feet for gas relief. Pair this cheery stone heating pad belt with thick socks for baby's gas.
Be sure to consult your pediatrician before using any products for your baby.
