My Most Used Items as a New Mom
As my husband and I prepared to welcome our baby boy in the final weeks of my pregnancy, we furnished the nursery and stocked up on the obvious basics, like wipes, diapers, and onesies. We were also lucky enough to have had a baby shower thrown for us by our sweet families at which we received a number of larger, practical items like the Fisher Price Rock N' Play and Baby K'Tan Baby Carrier, which have been lifesavers.
Beyond that, we didn't really what we'd need or find useful. Now, as Luke is nearly one month old and we're finding out groove as new parents, there are a number of simple, everyday items that have been so handy that I hadn't given much thought to beforehand. I'll definitely be restocking and/or saving these items for baby number 2!
