My Newborn-1 year old Must Haves!

I'm at that age where all of my friends are having babies. With that comes A LOT of questions on what products are the best in the business. I don't claim to be an expert but I'm happy to share my preferred products for my son in his first year of life! So you know, my husband and I lived in a 2 bedroom townhouse with my parents visiting and a dog. We had little room to spread out and were budget conscious so we were really mindful to try and find multi functional items.

A friend of mine brought a small bag over as a gift when my son was born and I haven't looked back since. Strong, soft (but not AS soft as pampers) and almost double the amount of diapers in a box for the same price as pampers....hell yes!

Nothing works as well as this on dry or cracked skin for baby. We've tried generic brands and other lotions/ointments and this is the go to for a reason!

My son loves to play with this and we've even taken it on vacation. This is the reason why he'll stay in bed quietly for an extra 20 minutes! 4 different settings for you to choose from but just be prepared with lots of extra batteries!

I think I used this more as a pillow for myself than anything....oh well. But when it wasn't a pillow for me, it was a comfortable spot to lay my son. It would prevent him from rolling over and he always seemed happy to observe his new world while laying in it.

My favorite blanket to take a go. Light enough to carry around and just enough to warm up my little one during walks or outings. Again, these get softer and softer after each wash.

Aden + Anais Oh Boy! Swaddle Plus Blankets 4 Pack
Aden + Anais Oh Boy! Swaddle Plus Blankets 4 Pack

One of my all time favorite items that is my go-to gifts for my new mommy friends. Use it as a swaddle, light blanket, burp cloth, whatever! It gets softer and softer as you use it.

We had two of these in our house. One in our room where he slept for the first 6 months and one downstairs to use as a napper/play area. With limited floor space, this was amazing for tummy time and play time overall.
