The things you actually need for baby (& you!)

September 17, 2018

Until about a month ago I thought I was totally ready to bring this little baby in to the world. I had her changing table, her crib, the rocker I plan on sitting in to feed her. I had all the clothes I could imagine and the nursery was decorated.

It wasn't until my gf's came in town and started looking through the stuff I had, that I quickly realized how much I didn't have to bring a human home. Plus I didn't realize there are certain things I needed for myself. I thought I had that part all figured out. Welp, turns out, mama needed some things just as much as baby.

I cannot be the only mama out there who has no clue what she'd need. This is the list, most of which you can get on Amazon, that'll make your life and babys life easier.

For Baby: 
  1. Nose Frida
  2. Diapers in size newborn, one and two
  3. Wipes
  4. Aquaphor
  5. Rectal Thermometer (for under 6 mo) and forehead thermometer (for over 6 mo)
  6. 5 ounce and 9 ounce bottles + different nipple sizes - I LOVE the comotomo bottles.
  7. Saline nose spray
  8. Grooming Kit
  9. Boon Bottle Drying Rack
  10. Bottle brush
  11. Butt Paste (small one for diaper bag and big one for changing table)
  12. Infant tylenol
  13. Shampoo, conditioner, baby lotion
  14. A bunch of plain onesies: I love these little Gerber ones
  15. Travel Bottle Cleaner
  16. Pacificer
For Mama: 
  1. Pumping storage bags
  2. Pump sterilizing bags
  3. Baby carrier, my Solly baby is my fav. 
  4. Nipple pads that freeze
