Baby Products You Will Actually Need

1. Convertible Car Seat

Sometimes I get the question "Should I purchase a new car seat or re-use an old one?" The truth is, invest in a good quality convertible car seat. You will use it almost everyday for years, so you will not regret this purchase!

2. Diaper Warmer

Baby Shower Gifts

When my sister told me that this was a must have products for my baby registry, I thought she was nuts. Like, should I just buy my baby a golden throne too!? But I was so happy I did. When you are a parent to a newborn, you will go to the ends of the earth to avoid hearing your baby cry. Would you like a cold wet wipe on your bottom first thing in the morning?

3. Nipple shields and Dr. Brown Bottles

Best Baby Products

If you plan to breast feed but have nipples on the smaller side, try these nipple shields. They will help baby get a good latch, and save you much frustration in the breastfeeding process. Remember it is a learning curve for both you and baby to breastfeed, so the easier it is to latch in the beginning, the better!
