Have you noticed the overwhelming amount of “baby essentials” available right now? If you’ve been visiting mom blogs, baby sites, or reading pregnancy/baby magazines, you’d have to be blind not to notice! The temptation to buy the myriad of adorable things for your baby is almost irresistible, that’s for sure. All these things sound so wonderful – it’s difficult to sort through and figure out which products you will find indispensable.
“In My Experience…”
So I’ve decided to put together a list of what I consider baby essentials. I didn’t go crazy buying all the cool mom products out there, but between my parents, friends, a couple of online giveaway wins, and myself, I found myself with a treasure trove of baby goodness to try out. Two of the things I put at the top of my “For Baby” list while I was pregnant were a nursing cover and a Boppy pillow. I knew the nursing cover would be completely necessary and I had read so many good reviews on the Boppy that I knew I couldn’t survive without it.
I’m planning on reviewing some of the things that were a God-send, and some that were not quite as necessary (for me). First up will be the L’ovedbaby Nursing Shawl – my total life-saver while breastfeeding!
I would love to know – what were your baby essentials? Was there anything you regretted buying, or didn’t use as much as hoped?
