I could seriously lick this stuff, I love the smell SO much! It also makes baby smell good enough to lick, and keeps their sensitive skin super soft and moisturized. I honestly couldn’t tell you if it really helps baby sleep, but you won’t mind waking up and rocking baby in the middle of the night when she smells THIS GOOD!
#4- Bobby Pillow
#5- Happiest Baby On the Block
This is the best resource on not only how to calm and sooth a crying baby, but how to get them to sleep! If you value sleep…you MUST check out this book.
#6- Sound Spa
Best invention EVER. This baby not only helped my daughter sleep when she was an infant…but helps drowned out some of the noise even now that she’s a toddler. With two dogs, a sound spa is a MUST in this house!
A great way to carry baby on the go without having to bring a bulky stroller. This is a GREAT investment, especially if you have older children to chase around while you are out and about.
#9- Moby Wrap
#10- Nuk Pacifiers
#11- Fisher Price Play Gym
These play gyms are great for tummy time or just laying baby down for a few minutes so you can get something done! Most come with a music feature, baby safe mirror and dangley toys. Another thing that we love about these is they are light and can be carried around from room to room without taking it apart and putting it back together again.
#12- Infant Swing
A serious life saver. Your baby will enjoy lots of naps in his or her swing. I would recommend spending a bit extra money to get one that swings both front and back AND side by side…your baby my prefer one over the other. And although they are more expensive, you may consider one that plugs into the wall. I can’t tell you how much we spent on D batteries!
I was not an expert swaddler, so these came in handy when my husband wasn’t around to help “tie baby in a knot”. They are machine washable so you just throw them in the wash with baby’s clothes or other blankets when they get dirty.
