Top 5 Newborn essentials


1. Carseat Cover --

This cover is AMAZING !!! Not only does it offer your newborn protection from total strangers touching them but it keeps them covered from too much sun and also creates a little warm bubble if its too cold! 

I was able to find a coupon code on Facebook and only needed to pay shipping! 

2. Ingenuity InLighten Cradling Swing and Rocker

2-in-1 Swing and Rocker

This is a new mommy life saver!! I wanted the Mamaroo so bad I was even saving for it! However after doing my research and talking with mommy friends most all of them said its not worth it. A traditional swing gives more movement where the Mamaroo is really light movement. I found this 2-in-1 swing and rocker and Grandpa said he would buy it !! SOLD. It has a $180.00 price tag compared to the almost $500.00 price tag! I love that she just sits right into it perfectly and loves being in it. When I need to run to the bathroom or make a bottle or pump she is totally content swinging away! Ive used the rocker a few times, I was able to detach the rocker part and bring her in the bathroom with me and get a quick shower where I could still keep an eye on her! 

3. Dr. Brown Bottles

Loving these bottles. We bought a 6 pack on sale at BabiesRUS. Thank goodness my amazing sister was here the first three weeks of Rylyn's life! The pack I had bought was a level 1 nipple. UMM didn't even look at the package or know about the different sizing of the nipples!!! NEW MOM HERE. When we got home from the hospital my sweet baby wasn't latching on any more and both her and I were getting so frustrated. So I gave in and made her a bottle, first mistake was I used a tiny Advent bottle which would have been fine but the amount of milk that was coming out of the nipple was too much for my newborn. It made her lazy and didn't make her suck at all it would just basically pour into her mouth! After one day of that we realized quickly we needed a change. Thank you google. We found premie nipples for the Dr. Brown bottles and they are perfect! Once she grows more we can switch to the level 1! 

4. MOBY Wrap

This Moby Wrap is awesome! It allows you to wear your baby and keeps them so happy being so close! I found ours at Target on clearance for $13.00. Wait for those deals people!!!!! I think once she is bigger we will need more of the backpack type carrier but for our newborn this is great! I was able to make dinner, do laundry, and frost a cake while wearing her! YAY for keeping the house clean, and baby happy at the same time!
