Newborn Favorites

Tuesday, June 16, 2015
After almost two months, I feel like I have a good handle on what products do and don't work for us (especially since this is our second time around). Every baby is different, butI love seeing what other moms like using, so I thought I would share some of my favorite products for the newborn stage with you.

1. Nursing Happens Infinity Breastfeeding Scarf: I love this so much more than traditional nursing covers. Its so much easier to carry with us (I can wear it as a scarf!) and it doesn't exactly scream "I'm nursing a baby over here!"

2. aden + anais Burpy Bib: These are the best burp cloths. They are big enough to actually cover your entire shoulder and are super absorbent. Bonus: they have these handy little snaps that turn it into a bib when needed down the line.

3. Solly Baby Wrap: I have used several different wraps and this one is by far my favorite. I carry Colette around in this wrap just about every time I leave the house. And I've used it quite a few times when housework needs to be done. I love that I can just throw it down in her diaper bag to have with me at all times. And it comes in such cute colors and patterns!

4. Newborn Leggings: These leggings from Target are perfect for a little girl. They come in so many colors and patterns. Most of Colette's outfits are these leggings under a onesie. 

5. Flanders Buttocks Ointment: My mom used this diaper cream when we were little, so we have sworn by this for years. It will heal even the worst diaper rashes in no time. It's not a prescription, but I have only found it behind the counter at the Target pharmacy.

6. Boppy: I'm using the same Boppy that I used with Cullen, but this time, I got this adorable donut cover from Target. It makes long nursing sessions a little more fun! I also have (and really like) the My Brest Friend nursing pillow, which is far superior for back support. But I love that the Boppy is so much more versatile. With both of my babies, we had trouble breastfeeding for the first few weeks and I had to pump and bottle feed expressed milk. It was quickest to prop them in the Boppy and bottle feed while I pumped. It can also be used during tummy time and when they are learning to sit. I feel like I get more for my money with this pillow.

7. Comotomo bottles: Even tiny Colette has done great drinking from these bottles. The nipple and feel of the bottle are made to mimic breastfeeding. And the soft, squishable bottle is super easy to clean, no bottle brush needed!

8. aden + anais Swaddle: We still swaddle Colette to sleep every night, and these are our favorite swaddle blankets. They are super soft and breathable and big enough to last as Colette grows. They also make great nursing covers and play mats. I make sure we have one of these with us at all times.

And yes, EVERYTHING is pink now. But that just comes with the territory of having a girl. Have you used any of these? What are some of your favorite products for newborns?
