Favorite Baby Items

Oh, how a little one can completely flip over someone’s world. An alarm clock is replaced by a hungry child, a floor disappears behind the seemingly endless, and well used, baby items. Burp rags are found strewn throughout the house for easy reach at a moments notice. Meal times revolve around when baby sleeps. Happiness is found so quickly and easily in those amazing baby giggles and little baby smiles, and amazement is never ceasing when watching the little one, especially when they’re sleeping.

Exactly one year ago, after waiting on hold with the doctors office awaiting test results, we found out I was pregnant. A slightly late birthday present for daddy, and slightly early Father’s Day gift. The joy, excitement, and surprise were certainly bountiful. After about a week of telling family and close friends we made the official Facebook announcement. We knew we were in for a change but we still didn’t quite know what to expect.

Naturally all the excitement meant looking at all the fun new baby stuff. As a growing family we’re completely surrounded by the abundance of items available for a baby, how is one to even know where to begin? The stores gave us this incredibly long list of must haves and we wondered how in the world we’d ever be able to afford it all, and do we really need THAT?

So I’ve put together a list of my 10 favorite baby items. Not everything is necessary, but I’ve found them to be incredibly helpful in our new adventure.

In no particular order:

Swaddle
Cloth Diapers
Rock and Play Sleeper
Carrier(s)
Baby swing
iPhone
Nursing Cover
Monitor
Daddy
Large Water Bottle
