New Baby Essentials

I could make a pretty long list of the stuff that’s been useful to have during our first month as parents, but I thought I’d stick to just a few items that have truly been essential. See the details below the image!

New baby essentials

1. Boon Naked Collapsible Baby Bathtub (Great when your small-apartment sink isn’t suited for baby bathing.)

2. Summer Infant SwaddleMe Adjustable Infant Wrap (Seriously easy to put on and keeps baby straight-jacketed through the night.)

3. Skip Hop Pronto Changing Station (I have the all-black version, but the chevron print’s pretty snazzy.)

4. Johnson’s Nursing Pads (I’ve tried another disposable brand and a washable version. Johnson’s simply makes the best ones!)

5. OXO Tot PerfectPull(TM) Wipes Dispenser with Weighted Plate (One-handed wipes action!)

6. Baby-boys Newborn Gerber 3 Pack Knit Burpcloths (The hubs likes these best because the interlock fabric is quite absorbent.)


  1. I love posts like this because I love seeing what other moms like! I’ve seen that bathtub in the stores. Glad to hear you like it! If you ever need a sleepsack (not a swaddle), I just discovered the quilted Baby Deedee sleep duvet…so cozy for baby! Wish I’d had it a few months ago.

    • Thanks for the tip, Andrea! We have a few sleep sacks we’ve tried, but haven’t quite gotten the hang of them yet.
