After having two babies, I realized what I REALLY need and what I never needed. The products that I am showing you today are products that we actually own (with the exception of 2 things) and they are products that I truly believe you will need. I wrote a little blurb next to each product that explains why I love it so much! If you have any other questions about these, please don’t hesitate to email me! I do include some affiliate links here but this post is NOT sponsored by anyone 🙂
At the end of this post there is a free printable that you can take along with you as you check the must-have items off your baby registry list!
Without further ado…..
The best baby registry list!
Owlet Monitor –> This is one of the coolest inventions. It monitors your babies’ oxygen saturation while he/she is sleeping. It gives you peace of mind during the night so that you too, can sleep better! Save $20 on your monitor here!
Thermometer–> Always need to have one of these handy!
Itzbeen Baby Care Monitor –> This monitor is amazing. It monitors baby’s last diaper change, last feeding (and if you are breastfeeding, which side it was on), and so much more. It’s great when others’ are taking care of your baby too so you can see how he/she did while you were gone!
Breathable Mesh Crib Liners –> We used these for Olivia for the first 1.5 years of her life. They are safe and she wasn’t able to get her leg stuck in between the crib rails!
Our Favorite Baby Monitor–> We have had this monitor since 2013 and we just added another camera for baby #2. I love that you can switch between on the bedrooms and see your kids!
My Favorite Nursing Bra –> This bra is my tried and true and very affordable!
Medela Quick Clean Micro-Steam Bags –> Great way to clean your pump accessories in between pumping sessions!
Medela Pump in Style –> The pump that I use while I am out of the house!
Burping Cloths –> These are actually cloth diapers but I use them for everything! Especially as a burping cloth!
Hands Free Breastpump Bra –> This is the bra I use while I pump so that I can be hands free. Great quality!
Boon Grass –> We dry all the bottles on this rack! We’ve had this since 2013 as well!
Jumperoo –> Olivia spent a few months in here and just loved it. I can’t wait to get it our for Ellie!
Hello, Animals! (Black and White) –> Babies can only see black and white when they are first born and this book is so cute!
Fisher-Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat –> We just got this for Ellie to help her stabilize her core and practice sitting up – we love it!
Skwish Natural Rattle –> Perfect for playing/grasping and also teething 🙂
Noggin Stik –> Olivia’s favorite grasping toy and is becoming one of Ellie’s favorite toys as well!
Kick and Play Piano Gym –> This is the one thing that we have gotten SO much use out of with both kids. For $35, it’s come a long way!
Hayden Reis Tote Bag –> This is a bit of a splurge and is a great gift for your registry so that others can chip in to get you one. This is hands down one of my favorite things I own for the babes. It has SO many compartments in it so that I can separate everything into a different compartment. Diapers in one area, wipes in another, snacks in another, etc. I don’t leave the house without this and it’s easy to see if you need to stock up on anything before leaving the house. HIGHLY recommend!!
Sakura Bloom Classic Baby Sling –> I loved my sling once Olivia was about 6-7 months old. I carried her in it until she was about a year and a half. These slings are very well made!
Convertible Car Seat –> This is Olivia’s car seat and it is SO heavy and sturdy. Love this thing. It’s also great that it converts and you essentially don’t ever need another car seat!
Baby Jogger City Select –> This is the stroller we have for both babes and we love it so far!
BOB Stroller –> If you are a runner, you NEED this stroller!
Britax B-Safe 35 Infant Car Seat –> This was Olivia’s car seat and it’s now Ellie’s infant car seat. We switched Olivia to her FOONF car seat at around 8-9 months!
Solly Baby Wrap –> This is my favorite baby carrying wrap for under 6 months!
Honest Diapers –> We have been using these for 2 years and I cannot say enough good things about these diapers. Honestly (no pun intended) it’s not that much more expensive for these and they ship them right out to you when you need them. It’s easy and convenient and they have the cutest patterns!
Nose Frida –> This is another HIGHLY recommended product. It is a nasal aspirator and it helps to clear out those boogers when your baby is sick!
Infant Tub –> This tub is great! It has a little thermostat on it so that you can easily tell the temperature before you insert your baby 😉
Diaper Rash Paste –> We use the maximum strength one for diaper rashes. Liv hasn’t had very many but this stuff cleared it up overnight whenever she did! I also apply it nightly since the babes are in their diapers overnight.
Earth Mama Angel Baby Oil –> We did baby massages with both kids and this is the stuff we used. Love it!
Wash With Water Organic Products –> These products are safe and smell yummy! We have the shampoo and body wash.
Crystal Mosaic Rug –> We don’t have this exact rug, but a similar one and I love their quality
Sheep Crib Sheets –> I just think these are darn adorable!
Crib Quilt –> …and this too!
Sheep Mobile –> The only mobile you’ll ever need. So cute!
Elephant Hamper –> The wicker hamper that is perfect for a boy or girl
Jenny Lind 3-in-1 Convertible Crib –> This is the one thing we don’t have but I wish we did! It’s so affordable and its convertible!
Glider & Ottoman –> Very affordable at $229!
Bear Hat –> To keep your little one’s head warm in the winter months!
Sleep Sacks ( love this Muslin
one!) –> These are what Ellie is currently sleeping in. They keep her warm and cozy and we through a long sleeve body suit underneath it. We used the HALO sleepsack for the first 2 months. We used them with Olivia as well. Love them.
