I thought I would compile a list of some of my go to favorites that I used for Harper in the first two months. I put links to them below!
One– I really can’t say enough about the Aden and Anais Blankets. They are truly the softest and best swaddle blankets out there! They are lightweight so it was perfect for covering Harper even in the summer months when it was hot. She now loves to grab these and squish them into her face!
Two– These are the best for night time. It keeps them nice and tight all night long and you don’t have to worry about them coming all undone.
Three– Harper loved and still does love her swing. I can’t imagine not having it. This swing that we have is nice because it can go side to side but you can switch it to go forward and back too. I will be so sad when she grows out of it.
Four– This bottle drying rack is great. It fits a lot of bottles and doesn’t take up to much counter space, which is very limited in my kitchen!
Five– Dr. Browns bottles have been the bottle I have used for all three of my girls. I have found them to be the best at reducing gassiness and spit up. I will say washing all the little pieces is a pain but since I love the bottles so much it’s worth it. They come in pink and purple now which makes it way more fun!
Six– Harper was super fussy starting at about 6 weeks and well it still hasn’t ended. But I find that sometimes this gripe water helps her calm down a little. Definitely not all the time but give it a try, it’s worth it.
Seven– I like pampers wipes. Personally I think they are the softest out there.
Eight– This little paci pod has been a handy little gadget. I always make sure there’s an extra paci in there and whenever I’m out and Harper decides to spit hers across the floor, I have another one. It buttons right onto the diaper bag and comes in lots of cute patterns!
Nine– I love this diaper bag. It took me a long time to decide on one to purchase but I finally landed on this one and I’m happy with my decision. I can shove a lot of crap in this bad boy, which if perfect for a mom of three! Cell phones and keys fit perfectly in the outside pockets too.
Well that about sums it up. Having a newborn is hard but some of these things make it a little easier. Feel free to leave comments for other mammas to check out!
