25 Mommy must-haves

I get stopped every time I brave the outdoors. Strangers first say, "Boy, you sure have your hands full!" Followed by, "What brand of stroller do you have?" and more questions about the items we tote around town.

Here is a list of the must have's for mommies and mommy to be's, from birth to toddler...

1) City select baby jogger with scooter (fits one to three kids)
2) Dr. Browns baby bottles (best for alleviating air bubbles)
3) Medela Pump in Style (I've tried over a dozen different pumps, this is the best)
4) Huggies diapers and wipes (best absorbent)
5) Petunia Pickle Bottom diaper bag (super durable)
6) Nuk Orthodontic Pacifiers (ok for teeth)
7) Chicco Keyfit 30 car seats (so easy to get in and out of car)
8) Aden + Anais swaddle (safe for baby)
9) Boba baby wraps (acts like the womb for baby)
10) Munchkin wipe warmer (baby's appreciate this!)
11) Aquaphor diaper rash cream (i use it for everything)
12) Cloud B sleep sheep (trust me, this works, and you can take it anywhere)
13) Vulli Sophie the giraffe teething toy (works great)
14) Aveeno baby wash and shampoo (so soft and gentle)
15) Boppy cuddle pillow (for you & baby)
16) Ergo baby carrier (so you can get out and have fun)
17) Bright Starts InGenuity baby swing and bouncy (life saver)
18) Angelcare bath support chair (can be used outside the bath to help with reflux)
19) Sassy on the go formula dispenser (can be used for many things!)
20) Manhattan Toy wooden balls toy (keeps baby happy & healthy)
21) My brest friend (the best nursing pillow out there)
22) Playtex spill proof sippy cup with straw (can be thrown 1,000 times and not break! Seriously!)
23) Stride Rite infant and toddler shoes (because they come in wide)
24) Aden + Anais sleeping bag (essential when baby can start to roll over)
25) Bumbo floor seat (makes baby feel independent)

Not everyone will agree with every item on this list, but these items have been essential in our family. The best advice I can give you is to not over buy. Just get the essentials!

Love, Lena
