Whether you’re expecting your first, second, or fifth child- being pregnant is a very exciting time and closer to when the baby is due – it can quickly turn into a time of extreme anxiety when preparing for baby’s arrival. Here are a few baby registry must-haves that you to make sure you have on your list!

Essentials For Baby:

I can not express how important a boppy pillow is! Whether you’re needing to rest your baby and your arms while breastfeeding, or simply wanting you baby to be propped up, the boppy pillow is definitely a must have!

I always kept a nasal aspirator handy. In fact, I had plenty of them on hand. They’re so easy to use and small enough to take with you when you’re on the go. Babies get the tendency to get stuffy and it’s an easy way to ease them of it. 
Swaddle Blanket, Adjustable Infant Baby Wrap Set by Ziggy Baby, 3 Pack Soft Cotton in Grey
For the first few weeks with your new baby, you will NEED swaddle blankets. Babies are used to the comfort and closeness of your womb, so making this world feel as comfortable as possible is going to be vital the first few weeks. Swaddle blankets make it easier to cuddle baby while feeding or right before sleep! 
KiddyStar Baby Burp Cloths for Boys and Girls 5 Pack, Organic Cotton, Large 21"x10", Triple Layer, Thick, Soft and Absorbent Towels, Burping Rags for Newborns, Baby Shower Gift

Gerber Baby Boys' 4 Pack Mittens
Mittens are needed when you notice baby starts to scratch. They can’t help themselves, so you can help by keeping plenty of mittens on hand! 
Newborn Hats For Boys Girls Soft 100% Organic Cotton Infant Baby Beanie Hospital Caps (3-Pack) (0-3M, Grey, Teal, White)
Organic hats, why? Because when you add all of the dye and chemicals used to clean the products that are on our shelves, you’re introducing baby to so much toxicity! Of course it’s our job to keep baby safe and warm, so organic hats will do the trick!

I know what you may be thinking, a comb and hairbrush is a no-brainer, but hear me out! This particular set is eco-friendly and organic. The set also includes a gentle scrubber and massager that exfoliates and removes cradle crap from baby’s head! 

Feeding Essentials:

Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Fiesta Bottle, 9 Ounce, 6 Count
These BPA and PVC free bottles give babies the natural nipple feel, just like mom! With it’s easy hold design, this is the perfect bottle for smooth transition between breast and bottle feeding and has a venting valve with slow nipple for less air intake and less discomfort for baby. Don’t forget to stock up on lots of extra nipples!!
Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Electric Bottle and Food Warmer, White
It’s not recommended to put baby’s bottle in the microwave because it can unevenly warm food and milk, so purchasing a bottle warmer is a much safer option! This particular bottle warmer warms bottles of breast milk and formula and also food jars in about 4 minutes and includes a temperature adjuster! 
OXO Tot Bottle Brush with Nipple Cleaner and Stand, Gray
Bottle brushes are imperative for cleaning baby’s bottles! I also like to invest in ones with a stand, which makes it easier to store (and dry) right on the kitchen sink.
Munchkin Latch Spinning Drying Rack
Once you’re done cleaning baby’s bottles, this spinning drying rack makes storing and drying them super easy! I had more fun with these spinning drying racks than I’d like to admit. Just don’t forget that they reassemble easily so that you can also give them a wash every couple of days as well!

#1 Pediatrician recommended detergent for babies and also recommended by Pampers! This specially formulated detergent will keep baby’s skin free of toxins that are found in regular laundry detergents. 

Baby Nursery Essentials:

Ingenuity Smart and Simple Deluxe Playard, Vesper/Grey
Before we move on to anything else in this list, I want to EMPHASIZE how this pack and play changed my life as a new mom! I positioned it right next to my bed for the first two or three months (my son wanted out of the bassinet). The pack and play made changing and feeding super easy! Not to mention, there is a place for baby to sleep and once he needs changing, the changing station is RIGHT THERE! I absolutely loved it and ended up gifting it to a family member not too long ago, because I loved it so much. It’s a new mom’s dream come true. There are compartments to stash a few diapers, wipes, and everything else you need that you may not want to get out of the bed at 2 am for.
I know so many moms who prefer co-sleepers that attach directly to your bed, BUT they don’t contain all of the extra storage compartments to make everything else that comes with baby easier (like diaper changing, a place for wipes, etc.). It’s the perfect gift for moms who have undergone c-sections as well! 
Serta Mid Century Modern Classic 5-in-1 Convertible Baby Crib, Grey
Purchasing a convertible crib is a smart move. Once baby hits about three months or so, they may want out of the bassinet and into something with more space for them to move around. Convertible cribs convert from a crib to a toddler bed, daybed, and even a FULL SIZE BED headboard! This is literally a bed for their entire life at home! Note that the toddler guardrail, full size platform bed kit, and full size metal bed frame or sold separately, but you’ll have plenty of time to invest and prepare for when baby grows. 
You will also want to invest in a waterproof crib mattress. This particular mattress is not only comfortable, but it also converts over to a toddler mattress as well! 

Pure Enrichment MistAire Ultrasonic Cool Mist Humidifier - Premium Humidifying Unit with Whisper-Quiet Operation, Automatic Shut-Off, and Night Light Function
Humidifiers are super important when bringing a new baby home. Not only do humidifiers help everyone in the home to breathe easier, it’s also vital for a more restful sleep! The best part about this one, is that it automatically turns off when the water level is low and has an optional night light effect.
Delta Children Eclipse Changing Table, Black Cherry
Once baby outgrows the bassinet and gets a little bigger, a changing table is a must! It’s sturdier than any other surface and includes so much space for organizing all of baby’s changing needs right underneath. 
Summer Infant Contoured Changing Pad
100% waterproof changing pads are also a must! This one also includes a security strap that keeps the pad attached to furniture and fits most standard changing tables.

It’s also machine washable and makes breastfeeding comfortable and discreet!

I would wear my daughter (youngest) and place my little champ into the shopping cart while we were out and about. This 2-in-1 cart cover gives comfort and complete protection from germs and bacteria and fits almost all types of shopping carts and HIGH CHAIRS! 
Graco Fastaction Fold Jogger Click Connect Baby Travel System, Gotham, One Size
It’s super important to invest in an all-terrain stroller! I can not stress this enough. There’s nothing more annoying than strolling baby around and then all of the sudden, the wheels lock on you, because they weren’t made sturdy enough to handle the sidewalk. This stroller may look super complicated to handle, but it’s actually made with the one-second, one-hand fold technology that makes it super convenient to pack and take with you anywhere! This particular stroller also comes with a rear-facing, infant car seat that can be placed onto the stroller as well.

Ease your mind while driving with a backseat mirror that allows you to keep track of baby’s cues while they’re riding in the backseat. I don’t know how many times I’ve had to pull over to check on baby while driving! 
You can never be too prepared for what motherhood may bring. It’s such an exciting and challenging time all at once. So sit back, enjoy the time you still have left to relax (on your own), and stock up on as many items here as you need to, to ensure that you and baby are comfortable and all of your needs are met!
