Being a new mother can definitely be overwhelming. There’s so much information out there about how to care for your baby, what products are best, when to start on solid food, breast feed or formula, the list goes on. I’m here to say one really important thing for all new mothers: do what’s best for you and your baby. Don’t judge other mom’s because they mom differently than you. Help them, support them, lend them an ear. Moms & women in general can be so hard on themselves. They don’t need anyone else bringing them down or judging how they parent their child. Now that I’m off my pedestal, on to the real reason for this post – my favorite baby products!

These products worked the best for me & my son. I wouldn’t recommend these products if I didn’t LOVE them. If you try them out & love them, let me know! It’s important to find things that work for you and your child. Welcome to motherhood!
my favorite baby products
1. burts bees rompers
Ok, seriously, aren’t these the cutest?!?! I have four of them right now and I can’t get enough. My son looks so stinkin’ cute in them. They’re great because he doesn’t have to wear pants with them (I wish that were the case for me, I hate pants!). They are also super soft. I believe they are made out of cotton? You must try them. I just love the way they look and feel.
2. banana toothbrush
This toothbrush has been a lifesaver once the little one started teething. I’m not even kidding. He just chews on it and is much happier. You can also pop it in the freezer for a bit – instant relief on their little gums. A must have.
3. lavendar chest rub
This stuff is great. Whether it actually calms babies or not, I’m not sure. But it did help when my son got a stuffy nose. And it makes him smell sooooooo good. You know how kids kinda start to smell when their sick? This definitely helps with that. Haha! But I love this chest rub, smells good, and helps their poor little stuffy nose.
4. saline wipes
This is a must have in winter/flu season! Let’s be real: babies can be so gross! Especially around the mouth and nose area. I like to keep saline wipes in my diaper bag, you know, just in case boogers happen on the go. And again, let’s be real: boogers do happen! I should make a t-shirt for mom’s that says that…
5. diaper bag
Of course a diaper bag is a must, at least for me! I love my diaper bag. I even have a matching iPad case to go with it! This diaper bag has everything I need. It’s the right size, super cute, and it has lots and lots of pockets. Love love love.
6. stroller & carseat
I gotta say, my stroller and carseat from Chicco are hands down the BEST stroller and carseat combo ever. I love that the carseat just clips right into the stroller. This was a life saver right after I had my son. I was able to go on walks right away with him.
What are some of your must have baby products? I’d love to know! I’m always on the lookout for products that have worked for other mothers.
