Top Baby Items for New Moms

You spend a lot of time thinking about your baby, but what about your own needs? You, too, will have requirements for those first few months and beyond. We’ve created a checklist of must-have items for new mothers (and fathers).

The baby registry checklist below should help you get off on the right foot.

As a parent of three, I can tell you that you don’t need half of the things stores tell you you’ll want before baby’s born. The best baby items are the ones that fit your family and lifestyle. But I do think it’s important to share what things you will want… whether they’re marketed as “necessities” or not!

Your baby needs to sleep, eat, and be cleaned. That’s your job as a new parent. Your baby also deserves to be warm and dry (remember the days of peeing your pants and getting away with it?), which is why we’ve compiled this checklist with baby essentials to help ensure you have everything you need for your newborn’s first days at home.
