I tend to be a little spontaneous and lack attention to detail. With my first child, I wanted to make sure that I had everything that I needed to provide the best care I could. With your first pregnancy comes a ton of advice from family and friends and inevitable purchases of unneeded baby gear. Wallace is now one month and after a lot of trial and error, I had made a list of products that have been essential for our flow.
I also have an automatic breast pump but find that I use this way more often. I like being able to control how quickly I am pumping and like the mobility of the manual pump.
This bra is unlined so you will need these but I am living in this right now.
Breastfeeding is difficult and painful at first so I used this to keep things moist.
I have always had some pretty intense knee pains and after the weight gain from pregnancy, they were coming on pretty strong. This salve was pure magic after birth and helped any muscle pains I was having instantly.
Oatmeal is amazing for milk production because it contains, iron, protein, fiber, phytochemicals and other nutrients are are beneficial for milk supply. This has quickly become a staple in my diet. I like to add yogurt for probiotics and berries for antioxidants.
When babies are small, it seems silly to put them in outfits. Onsies are the easiest and cutest outfit for infants and this is what I have Wallace in everyday.
These muslin swaddles are the softest, most adorable swaddles and though we have a ton of swaddles to choose from, these seem to be what I gravitate towards.
I have been trying out different covers and found these to be the best because they are thinner than other covers but also have a waterproof lining.
We were fortunate enough to receive a diaper service for 9 months so it really took any of the guess work out for us. The service we were gifted was LuLuDew and has been really easy so far.
I love the honest company. After trying out a few different natural wipes brands, these are working the best for us.
This is what we are using instead of a traditional bassinet. I love the natural feel and small size.
I have a few different baby carriers but love that this has great neck support for a really teeny baby.
