Now on the essentials.
Johnson’s Head-to-Toe Baby Cleansing Cloths, 15 Count. These cloths are a life saver with a newborn. Babies are bound to get dirty but their skin is so delicate as a newborn that taking a bath every single day may not be feasible. Or perhaps you need to get going somewhere and you just realized that your baby needs a bath, but you dont have the time. That’s where these wipes come in handy. They are big and soft and will clean most messes without the hassle of a full bath. (But of course this is no substitute for an actual bath at least a couple times a week as a newborn)
Leachco Podster Sling-Style Infant Lounger – Moroccan Gray. The Podster was my saving grace when I had my son. It’s so easy to let them sit in there, while supervised, so you can get other stuff done. I used to sit him in his podster and park him in the bathroom when I had to take showers, or set him up on the floor in the kitchen while I did dishes when I was home alone with him. Also it is very comforting because it’s so snuggly. My son used to love his.
Huggies Little Snugglers Baby Diapers, Size Newborn, 88 Count (Packaging May Vary) or Pampers Swaddlers Newborn Diapers Size 1, 216 Count. Some people prefer one brand over the other which is why I included both. They are both great for babies. Personally in my house we were Huggies lovers all the way.
Gerber Unisex-Baby Newborn 3 Pack Short Sleeve Side Snap Shirt, White, 0-3 Months. When your baby is really small these shirts come in handy. You don’t have to pull it over their head or disturb them if you need to change them while they are asleep. You can just slip these shirts right on and button it in the front.
Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Bath, 18 Fl. Oz & Aveeno Baby Calming Comfort Lotion, 18 Oz This bath wash and lotion are amazing! Not only do they wash and moisturize your baby, but the smell AMAZING. This is without doubt one of my favorite scents. And even though my little guy is only 2 now, every time I smell these products I immediately get a flashback from when he was very little.
aden + anais silky soft swaddle 3 pack, indigo. Of course you’ll need blankets with a new born. But you can’t beat these aden & anais blankets. You can use them to swaddle your baby, or to lightly cover them with supervision. They are so soft and very comforting for babies.
aden by aden + anais Bandana Bib, Dove. Bibs are a must. I personally love these aden & anais bibs. They wrap around like little bandannas. You can keep them at all the times, even when they are not eating, to catch their drool.
Pampers Baby Wipes Sensitive 7X Refill, 448 Count. Baby wipes are obvious. The pampers wipes are super soft and great for sensitive skin.
Lansinoh Breastmilk Storage Bags, 100 Count, BPA Free and BPS Free (Packaging May Vary). If you plan on breastfeeding and want to eventually pump milk to store, these storage bags are the best. They won’t leak and they keep the milk better for longer.
Playtex Diaper Genie Refills for Diaper Genie Diaper Pails – 270 Count (Pack of 3) & Playtex Diaper Genie Complete Diaper Pail with Odor Lock Technology, White. You will definitely want this. This bin keeps your babies diapers out of the regular trash so it won’t stink up the room it is in. In my opinion this is so worth it!
Fisher-Price Auto Rock ‘n Play Sleeper, Aqua Stone. I love this rock and play sleeper. You can put baby in there for naps, or to keep them occupied if you need to do something.
Triple Paste Medicated Ointment for Diaper Rash, 16-Ounce. This diaper ointment is hands down the BEST there is. It is super thick, provides soothing while protecting from irritation. This will heal rashes so fast. I use this on my son ALL the time.
