My Top 5 Must-Haves for Baby J

If you were to ask 10 different people, their top 5 must have baby items, you’d get 10 different answers.  So here’s my list of the important stuff!

1) You MUST have a place for baby to sleep, unless you’re bed-sharing. We’re not, so we’re getting the  Arms Reach Mini Co-Sleeper Bassinet,

2) Next on the list is an Angel Care Monitor. With Michael, we had the simple sound monitors, but with this baby, we’re going with a sensor as well, even tho he’ll be IN our room with us.

3) We want baby to be safe on his first trip home, so we got this lovely, Graco Comfort Sport Convertible Car Seat.

4) With our next must-have, I had two stipulations. It had to be light, and it had to have REAL wheels. This one has it! And for added bonus, it’s SUPER easy to handle, one-handed! Baby Trend Expedition Jogger.

5) Last, but certainly not least, an infant carrier, that I can breastfeed in. Infantino Wrap N Tie Carrier.

We tried to make our list as minimalist as possible, but when you’re in baby mode, it’s hard to pass up cute this, or cute that. I think we managed pretty darn well, don’t you?! If I had to add anything else to my list it would be, Halo Sleep Sacks and California Baby toiletry items for baby.

What are your top 5 must haves for baby? What is most important to you?

  1. Ohh I had the baby trend jogger .. it SUCKED , was heavy and very bulky .. .If you want a great stroller check out the Joovy Kooper . It lays down 100% so you can use it for a newborn and turns on a dime .. AS for baby carriers I would suggest a babyhawk with XL straps or a Olives& Applesauce Soft Structured carrier ,as Infantino Wrap N Tie Carrier will not fit a plus size Mama very well , the straps are too short .You can check out‘s FSOT section for great deals on carriers or (they do baby carrier rentals so you can try before you buy )! .

  2. I prefer the Moby Wrap above ALL other carriers/wraps/slings. As you know I have nursed for the last 19 months and there’s nothing better than the Moby when it comes to head support, secure positioning and versatility. You can position him in any way you want and don’t have to worry about his head falling forward (chin to chest) and cutting off his air supply as many of the other ones (like the ring sling) can do.

    • I loved mine too, when I used it with Mickey. HE didn’t, but he wanted to see and move and wiggle and yah. 🙂 But the Moby is going to be my go to, esp while in the home, during the winter.

      Good job and breastfeeding for so long! That is great!
