Essentials for bringing home Baby!

These are the items that I couldn't live without after bringing home my baby from the hospital up until now at 3 months old! Everybody is going to have different wants, but these were all super useful for me! I'm not quite done yet and will be adding more as I think of things!

Fisher Price My Little Lamb Cradle Swing

This swing has been and is awesome for my baby! He loves it.

Here are the awesome Cloth Covers (Grovia Hybrid Shells) that go with our inserts!

GroVia Organic Soaker Pads - 2-Pk
GroVia Organic Soaker Pads - 2-Pk

We have a ton of these inserts for our Grovia Cloth Diapers! We didn't use them when he was a teeny newborn because of the meconium poop, and the super frequent diaper changes, but now that he's older we love using our cloth diapers at home!

GroVia Cloth Wipes - 12ct.
GroVia Cloth Wipes - 12ct.

I actually have the AMP Hemp kind of cloth wipes but they are a must for diaper changes. My son has super sensitive skin so we had to use cloth wipes on his newborn bum. These were so easy to just wet, then wipe!

Babies R Us Kushies Playpen Fitted Sheet - Grey Chevron

Again this isn't the style I have, but a fitted crib sheet is obviously important. ;)

Babies R Us Lulujo - Muslin Cotton Wrap - Sailboats
Babies R Us Lulujo - Muslin Cotton Wrap - Sailboats

Muslin blankets! These are awesome light weight blankets that are great for a quick swaddle, or a light blanket in the carseat! Also works great as a nursing cover in public.

Angel Care Angelcare Bath Support
Angel Care Angelcare Bath Support

This Bath support is great with my little one in the tub. It also helps as a (supervised) seat for my guy when you need a quick minute to go pee! ;)

HALO Innovations, Inc. HALO SleepSack Swaddle Blue Space Robot Microfleece
HALO Innovations, Inc. HALO SleepSack Swaddle Blue Space Robot Microfleece

This is another product where I don't have this exact colour but I have a HALO SleepSack/Swaddle. It's so awesome. You can swaddle arms in until your baby can roll over, and then you can swaddle arms out! We just recently switched to a muslin fabric one as it's summer and HOT, but still great nonetheless.

Gerber Childrenswear Gerber Boys 3 Pack Blue Mittens-0-3 Months
Gerber Childrenswear Gerber Boys 3 Pack Blue Mittens-0-3 Months

Now I don't have these exact ones because I can't find the brand we have (Kushie's) but these are are great for preventing those scratches on your baby, and also to keep their teeny hands warm.

ONESIES. So important and easy with a newborn.

Summer Infant SwaddleMe 3pk Chevron & Stars (SM)
Summer Infant SwaddleMe 3pk Chevron & Stars (SM)

These were great for swaddling my baby. So much safer than using a blanket that can become undone!

Babies R Us Kidiway Organic Contour Change Pad
Babies R Us Kidiway Organic Contour Change Pad

We don't have this exact one but a change pad nonetheless is so important!

Boba Wrap Classic Baby Carrier - Gray
Boba Wrap Classic Baby Carrier - Gray

A wrap is very for getting stuff done around the house when your little one only wants to be held.

Medela Contact Nipple Shield
Medela Contact Nipple Shield

Not everybody will need a nipple shield, and most hospitals will provide them, but we needed one for a week. So it was definitely a life saver!

Avent Soothie Pacifier
Avent Soothie Pacifier

SO MUCH. I wouldn't survive without these. My son LOVES them.

Babies R Us Philips AVENT Natural Glass Baby Bottle Gift Set
Babies R Us Philips AVENT Natural Glass Baby Bottle Gift Set

Having my son's dad be able to feed the baby was very important to me.. so I managed to pump milk and we used these bottles! Love them!

Britax B-Safe 35 Elite Infant Car Seat, Prescott
Britax B-Safe 35 Elite Infant Car Seat, Prescott

This carseat pairs with the stroller.. of course it's a must if you drive! So convenient to be able to just take it right out of the car and click into the stroller. Love!

Britax Backseat Mirror
Britax Backseat Mirror

A mirror in our car is so important! I like how it has the snaps so it's safely secured, and you can peek on your baby at any time!

Summer Infant By Your Side Sleeper, 1 ea
Summer Infant By Your Side Sleeper, 1 ea

Now, I only used this for 5 weeks in my bedroom as we moved our son to his bed after that, but it's been great in other places too! For the first few weeks of his life we would bring it downstairs, and he would nap in this every day.. Saved me climbing the stairs (not fun with stitches!) and was super easy. It's also been great now that he's a bit older and we go out to friends' houses..he can sleep anywhere!

Britax B-Agile Stroller - Black
Britax B-Agile Stroller - Black

A big purchase, but an important one. I was lucky enough to have this given to me by my parents, but it's a must for your baby. The infant car seat clicks right in, and the stroller is SUPER light. Only 17lbs and super easy to collapse. With a back injury having something easy to carry and fold by myself was a must!

Levana Astra PTZ Video Baby Monitor 3.5 inch
Levana Astra PTZ Video Baby Monitor 3.5 inch

I know they say it's recommended to have your baby in your room for the first 6 months, and if you do that then maybe a monitor isn't important.. but for me, my son was a grunter!! At 5 weeks old he kept me up all in while in his bassinet so we decided to move him to his room. He started sleeping through the night, so a video monitor is a MUST. This one is fantastic.. you can pan/tilt/zoom right from the monitor and the night vision is fab.

LANSINOH PAD DISPOSABLE NURSING BRA PADS x60 #20265
LANSINOH PAD DISPOSABLE NURSING BRA PADS x60 #20265

These are a must for when your milk comes in, and also if you're breastfeeding for the first few months before your milk regulates. I have a very strong let-down so I still need these from time to time!

Huggies® Natural Baby Care Wipes
Huggies® Natural Baby Care Wipes

We started out with Kirkland wipes but my baby has an allergy to them, and gets a rash every time they touch his skin.. Huggies wipes how ever have been a blessing! We didn't start using them until he was a few months old, but I wish we had them from the get go!

Huggies® Little Snugglers Newborn Diapers
Huggies® Little Snugglers Newborn Diapers

These were my FAVOURITE newborn diapers by far. We tried numerous brands but never had any issues/blowouts/leaks with Huggies. We are continuing these in now a size 2!
