Check out our list of essentials as you welcome your new baby.
- Lumi by Pampers was co-created with pediatricians. With the Smart Baby Monitor + Sleep Kit Bundle, track baby’s napping and overnight sleeping trends, as well as diapering activity. Get insights into baby’s patterns so you can anticipate needs and create routines. With the award-winning Smart Monitor, get crystal-clear views of baby day or night, plus 24/7 temperature and humidity tracking and 2-way audio.
- Ideally, you want to hold your newborn close; practically, you need your hands free—at least some of the time. Get the best of both with the BabyBjörn Carrier Miracle. It’s the classic BabyBjörn design, updated with organic cotton material and a flexible, ergonomic waist belt for optimum weight distribution.
- Experienced moms may tell you a bouncer seat is a must, and we agree. It’s the perfect place for baby to rest when you need to shower, wash the dishes or simply sit down for a few minutes of “you” time. 4Moms mamaRoo Plush is the typical bouncer made better. This mom-inspired version moves like you, in figure eights: up and down; high on the sides and low in the middle; even in circular motions like an ocean wave.
- Lightweight, breathable, slightly stretchy and made from 100 percent cotton muslin, Luna Lullaby The Soothing Blanket is ideal for newborns, older babies and even household uses. It’s the perfect material for swaddling (there’s an instructional video on YouTube), but you can use it for so much more—as a changing surface, burp cloth, breastfeeding cover-up, car seat or stroller cover-up, tummy time mat…and later, to dust your furniture.
- Bamboo fabric makes up 95 percent of Kickee Pants silky-soft, short-sleeve one-piece bodysuits, and five percent Lycra gives them just the right amount of stretch. With nine colors and six sizes to choose from, these basic pieces just might become the cornerstone of your baby’s wardrobe. (The ruffled-butt style is irresistible for girls!) Sizes newborn to 24 months.
- Giving your baby a bath is no easy feat, but with some practice, you’ll be a pro in no time. Boon’s Naked Tub helps you with the job and won’t take up valuable living space. It reclines, expands and completely collapses when you need it out of the way.
- Preparing your baby’s bottles just got easier, thanks to the Munchkin Night & Day Digital Bottle Warmer and Cooler. The portable device keeps breast milk chilled, then heats it to the perfect temperature for feeding when you’re ready—even in the middle of the night. And when you’re sleep deprived, you need all the help you can get.
