What are your must-have newborn baby items?
That is the question I get most often, and I see asked all the time in the mama groups on Facebook.
As I started working on this list, I realized that this list of newborn baby items is one of several lists. This one only encompasses the things I would need if I were bringing home a new baby and would get me through a couple of months. This list does not include feeding (breast, bottle, solids), mama needs, mobile baby needs, toddler needs, etc. I also did not include car seat information and stroller information. We used UppaBaby car seats and strollers for our babes. But if I were to do it again, I would likely use Nuna, as we have loved their convertible seats. Maybe this will make up a series of blog posts?
I have three categories of newborn baby items — needs, wants, and lagniappe. Needs:: the things I cannot live without, wants:: the most fun stuff if you have a little extra cash or if you want to spoil a friend, and lagniappe:: for being EXTRA.
The items listed are my favorites and the ones we actually used and would use again. I may have found out about some of these brands through Lafayette Mom, but I am in no way sponsored to have my opinions about these items.
If you are having a baby, thinking about having another baby or going to a baby shower, THIS IS THE BLOG POST FOR YOU.
