We get asked quite frequently what baby products are on our “must-have” lists, so we thought it would be fun to do a round up of our real, tested and loved baby products.
Here they are!
1. Diaper Bags
Our favorite is the classic diaper bag from Pottery Barn Kids HERE. We have absolutely hammered these diaper bags and they still look like brand new. Look out for sales, you can usually get a good deal!
2. Boppy Nursing Pillow
The good ole’ Boppy HERE is so wonderful for support for nursing and perfect to prop your baby up so he can see all around from being newborn. We both used hand me downs that were in great shape, and bought new covers to match our nurseries.
3. Tommee Tippee
We love the basic design of Tommee Tippee and used almost all of their products: Bottles, sterilizer, bottle warmer, and pacifiers. We didn’t experiment much with different brands, but the girlies took to them right away and we had no complaints! We will note however, that we did change up the nipple every 6 months or so, to the next age range, this kept the girls happy.
4. Maxi Cosi Car seats
We have always been huge fans of Britax carseats until Sarah tried the Maxi Cosi HERE. It is beyond any comparison in comfort and coziness. So nice for your little one! The fabric washes amazing, and we like the choice of colors! (It’s also the only brand that is compatible with bumble ride strollers, another must have :)
5. A Bassinet (on wheels)
We loved having bassinets when our babies were newborns that we could roll right up next to our beds. Pottery Barn Kids bassinet HERE.
6. Baby Bjorn Carrier
We’ve tried every baby carrier there is out there and for us nothing beats the original Baby Bjorn HERE. It is very user friendly, lightweight and compact, which makes baby carrying a breeze.
If you like the idea of a baby swing the mamaroo has no other comparison HERE. You can even sync it to your phone.
8. Diaper Caddy
We cannot get enough of this baby station on the go HERE. Still use on a daily basis!
9. Bumbleride strollers
Specifically the Indie stroller HERE. This stroller is incredibly smooth and easy to maneuver. We love the bassinet attachment HERE for the newborn stage to make into a proper pram. You can also buy the Maxi Cosi car seat attachment HERE for convenience. Sarah has love, love, LOVED her double Indie HERE and swears if you’re having twins there is no other choice. It’s easy to maneuver with one hand, and had literally been key in running errands when kids out number adults!!!
There is always spit up and poopy diapers and THIS gentle body spray makes baby (and momma) smell like heaven. We also love THIS newborn hair and body wash. It’s so gentle and smells divine, we still use it on our toddlers.
11. Stokke Tripp Trapp
Our little brothers had THESE Stokke Tripp Trapp high chairs from being infants. The highchairs are almost 30 years old and still going strong. They adjust with your growing child and are definitely worth the splurge! We plan on getting one for every new baby, to see them right though childhood.
You may of noticed that a lot of these items are on the pricey side. With some, we were able to share or pass on, and because the quality on all these items is outstanding often you can find second hand ones that are still in wonderful condition. We very rarely pay full price, if you keep your eye on sales and coupons!
We hope you found our round up useful, and for all of you with your own favorite items, please share in comments!!!!
Happy Baby Shopping!!!
