10 New Baby Essentials From a Mom of 3
Babies have a tendency of taking over your home. They have so much stuff and registries can be so overwhelming.
There are many items we received or bought throughout the years that we’ve never used and I want to save you the space and the budget to focus on the items that really matter. As a mom of three, I’m sharing my favorite new baby essentials.
Now of course you’ll need a car seat, stroller, and eventually a crib, but these are my regular go-to items that I love and highly recommend to any new moms.

New Mom and Baby Essentials
After 3 babies, I've scaled down our baby gear to the most essential items needed to raise little humans. The items in this list are my go-tos, my lifesavers, and are not to be missed.
Ingenuity Foldaway Rocking Bassinet
With the recall of the Rock 'n Play, thousands of moms have needed a safer alternative for their babies. I love having a bassinet to put baby in on my main floor. The flat surface of this bassinet promotes safe sleep habits.
HALO SleepSack Micro-Fleece Swaddle
I love these sleep sacks. This one has velcro making it super easy to get baby swaddled and snuggled for sleep.
Infant Optics DXR-8 Video Baby Monitor with Interchangeable Optical Lens
A video monitor brings peace of mind as your little one sleeps. Camera units can be added to this model, which is ideal for growing families.
Aden by aden + anais Baby Swaddle Blanket
These swaddle blankets are so soft and versatile. Use them to swaddle baby, as a nursing cover, or a large burp cloth.
Simple Joys by Carter's Baby 3-Pack Sleep and Play
Zippered sleep and play baby outfits are the best when baby is so young, especially in the night time. No need to fiddle with buttons or snaps. Believe me, you want zippers!
Maya Wrap Ring Sling
Baby's love to be snug against mom. This wrap is easy to use and can support baby in multiple positions, and allows mom to be hands free.
Dohm Classic White Noise Machine
This white noise machine is essential for healthy sleep habits. The white noise will quiet baby's mind better than a lullaby. It's great for parents too!
MAM Newborn Pacifiers
The Soothie pacifer you receive in the hospital is great, but not all babies love it. These MAM pacifiers are definitely worth a try.
Piyo Piyo Baby Nail Scissors
Repeat after me: Never use clippers on a new baby. When my oldest was an infant I made that mistake and cut his little finger. Never again. These nail scissors are the best and worth the price.
Baby Nasal Aspirator NoseFrida the Snotsucker by Fridababy
It may seem like the grossest thing, and it kind of is. Put that aside because this thing is the best at getting your little one's nose cleared.

These are such great baby items. I have the white noise machine and it’s amazing! My older kids even use it.
I love white noise for myself too! I have an app on my phone, which is also great for travel.
