What I’m Loving: Newborn Addition

I have done posts about what I am loving before, but I thought it was time to do a baby edition. I always enjoyed seeing what products other moms used so hopefully someone finds this helpful!

Infanito Go GaGa Gym: This is a great place to do tummy time with your baby, and Emma Kate loves looking at the mirror and the mobile that winds up and plays music. This will usually keep her entertained for 10-20 minutes and is a nice change of scenery. The best thing about it is that it folds up really easily so is very portable!

Boppy newborn lounger: A friend of mine gave me her lounger when her kids outgrew it. At first I wasn’t even sure I was going to use it, but it has been my number one baby item and used on a daily basis. For the first three weeks of EK’s life, this is where she took every nap. I would move the boppy from the couch to the bedroom to the kitchen and she would just lay in it and look around, and then fall asleep. I will be sad when she outgrows it and gets more mobile!


HALO Bassinest: I wrote a full review on this the other day, but I am singing it’s praises again. Super convenient for little babies to sleep next to your bed.

Soothie pacifiers: We started giving Emma Kate a pacifier about a week after she was born, and we have tried many many brands with this being the ONLY one she will take. These are a must in the car or when she is really fussy or overtired.


Motorola video monitor: We didn’t get this until a couple of weeks ago, and it is amazing. I love being able to hear her make noises then flip on the screen to make sure she is ok without having to run into whatever room she is in immediately. The parent unit has rechargeable batteries in it, so I carry it around with me and don’t need a cord which is awesome.

Christmas baby clothes: Just because they are super fun and I can’t wait to put Emma Kate in festive outfits! The kind folks at OshKosh B’gosh sent us a care package of the most adorable baby clothes!


QOTD: What were some essentials for you in the first weeks of your baby’s life?

  1. Those outfits are super adorable!!! Cant wait to see the pictures!

  2. So I don’t know if this will be helpful or not, but Milo also loves the smoothie pacifier and we ended up getting him a couple of Wubanubs- they have little animals in the end. They have a little weight on them so they stay in place a little better and Milo is learning how to put it back in on his own because he can grab it and hold it. It comes with a soothie attached to it!

  3. The soothie pacifiers were the only ones my boys would take! And it’s so funny seeing them sucking through the see through pacifier lol!

  4. I love the Christmas outfits!! Too cute!
