Baby Must Haves

Hi, loves!

Mama. Fashion Enthuse. Business Woman. With a natural inclination for organization and an unwavering passion for attainable, effortless style, elevating the everyday brings a sense of wholeness to my life.

Meet Alexa

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. The mother is something absolutely new.” 

I can’t believe it’s almost been two months since I gave birth to my sweet baby boy, Deuce. The newborn life has been a whirlwind filled with lots of cuddles, emotions, learning and love. While there’s no manual to navigating motherhood over the past two months we have tried many baby products and returned lots – it’s all trial and error with newborns. We’re adjusting to our new life, creating routines *trying* and loving some baby products that make our lives a little easier. Here are my favorites so far!

  1. Halo Swaddle: In the first few weeks we tried so many swaddles and Deuce constantly would wiggle his way out of them. I came across the Halo Swaddle at Target and we love it. As the baby gets older, we’ll be transitioning into a sleep sack but I highly recommend for the newborn stage. Every baby is different but this one worked wonders for us!
  2. Bibs Pacifier: I love this pacifiers and the colors it comes in!
  3. Baby Bjorn Carrier: The most comfortable carrier I’ve tried. It’s perfect for walks, shopping with the baby or getting errands done around the house. Plus its reasonably priced!
  4. Diaper Caddy: Perfect for the car or carrying around the house during the day! It keeps me organized and is super convenient when reaching for baby items.
  5. Dr. Brown’s Bottles: A household holy-grail for us and many other families. Honestly, we’ve only tried Dr. Brown’s bottles and they’re great. No leaks!
  6. Elvie Breast Pump: Breastfeeding/Pumping was extremely challenging for me in the beginning weeks until I found the this pump. It’s beyond convenient, easy to use, and portable.
  7. Mushie Pacifier Clip: Love this neutral paci clip! I use it when we are out and about and it easily attaches to clothes, carseats, carrier, etc.
  8. Vtech Baby Monitor: This monitor is great – we wanted something that came with a separate screen to move around the house with and so that we weren’t strapped to our phone all day.
  9. Onesies: You can never have enough of these. I love getting them from H&M, Target and Carters!
  10. Dove Baby Wash + Lotion (Sensitive Skin): I love this wash/shampoo & their lotion. It’s gentle on Deuce’s skin. He had a breakdown with a few other products and we finally have settled on this.
  11. SkipHop Bath Tub: Love this tub! It’s lightweight and easy to drain once bath tub is over.
  12. Mustela No Rinse Cleansing Water: I love this no rinse cleansing water to use throughout the day when it’s not bath time yet. Spit up and milk always get into neck rolls, and I just use this on a washcloth to keep it clean plus it’s gentle on baby skin which is a must!
  13. Dockatot: A splurge but worth the $$$! It makes the baby feel snug and cozy and it perfect for lounging in the house or traveling.

I’m so excited to continue to share my motherhood journey with my little corner of the internet. Thanks so much for following along!
