Must Haves for Baby Gift Guide

Thank You For Sharing!!

As a soon-to-be Mom to three, there are certain products that I swear are essentials and absolute “must haves” for baby. This gift guide will help you, as a Mom-to-Be, or gift giver as you embark on this new journey.

Welcoming a little one into your family is such a joy! Along with that joy comes a LOT of preparation not only in your home but in your life. We’re about to welcome our 3rd baby into our family and I am still nervous that I don’t have all the things for her.

Looking for Must Haves for Mom?

This is our 3rd, though, so my “must haves” list is a lot shorter than it was with my first. This is simply because I learned what I used and what I didn’t use and I learned what are essentials and what are just nice to haves.

One of the things that we did a few years ago was declutter our home. I will not claim to be minimalistic but I do think that we are more intentional about what is brought into our home. In all honesty, we need to declutter again before baby comes.

While I have her area pretty much ready to go, I still feel like the remainder of the house is in disarray. One step at a time huh?

Must Haves for Baby Gift Guide

Must Haves for Baby

I am excited to share this list of must have products for baby! I’d like to add that this is not an all inclusive list, but one that I consider are MUST have items for your little one. You will get to know your baby and your parenting style and can add or remove items from the list as you see fit, too!

Earth Baby

Quality bath care and skincare products for baby is essential. My kids have all had sensitive skin so I am very careful as to what I put on their bodies. I’ve found a product line that offers certified organic and vegetable-based ingredients that I am excited to share with you.

Committed to using certified organic fruit and vegetable-based ingredients, Earth Baby’s products are non-toxic, gentle, and effective on baby skin, hair, and body. Earth Baby products provide immediate moisturization and superior hydration, emollient oils and vitamins with a time-controlled release, and dramatically reduced need for high levels of UV filters. They also have a best-selling, moisturizing, organic, hand-sanitizer for even children’s hands! Founded by a grandmother, mother, and orphan, Earth Baby’s founder donates 1% of all sales to two incredible organizations (Preface Project Foundation and Folded Flag Foundation) that build a better tomorrow and impact our community by fostering opportunities for the next generation as a token of gratitude to those that helped her along the way. All made in the U.S.A.

Kyte Baby

Sleep sacks are essential. One of the things I learned between my first and second, is that swaddling is beneficial for infant sleep. What happens, though, when they grow out of swaddling? You need a quality sleep sack and Kyte Baby has you covered.

Award-winning, celebrity-loved, sleep bags and babyapparel! Unlike other baby apparel, Kyte BABY has the softest baby and adult pajamas that are economically sourced out of bamboo! Bamboo is three degrees cooler than cotton, while also being hypoallergenic. The fabric itself also promotes the smart use of resources and sustainability. Bamboo is the best choice for your babyand for the planet’s future, and this way of thinking is evident in every aspect of Kyte BABY! The founder’s daughter suffered from infant eczema and she needed comfortable clothing for her at night time for her sensitive, itchy skin, bamboo’s buttery soft fabric was the best answer for her baby girl! She invested in and created Kyte BABY for all babies, and mommies too! Recently featured in Forbes and by A-lister Jessica Alba on her Clean Baby Registry List: Poosh!

Bouncer Seat

This is one of the cheaper things I got for my son, who is now 8, but that I have used for all of my kids. This bouncer seat is essential and perfect for travel, transportability through the house, etc.

The Ingenuity Keep Cozy Baby Bouncer, Seat & Infant to Toddler Rocker grows with baby to be enjoyed for years. Parents love baby rockers and bouncers because they give you a second set of hands while baby sits comfortably in your sight. With the Keep Cozy, you get 3 modes in 1: bouncing, rocking, or convert it to a stationary seat for your toddler with the kickstand at the rear. Packed with features like soothing vibrations powered by 1 C battery (not included), two reclining positions for baby’s comfort and a removable infant bolster that helps newborns sit securely. As your child grows, it’ll be their favorite chair in the house. Includes a detachable plush bunny hanging toy for playtime at home or on the go. The seat’s soft, neutral design blends into any home décor. Seat pad and bolster are machine washable . Accommodates children up to 40 pounds. So versatile, it makes a great add to your baby registry, too. Assembled dimensions are 25.8×20.2×21.0’’.

Chicco Duo Bottles

These bottles are amazing! With my son we used all plastic bottles and then I found glass bottles for my daughter and loved them! The Chicco Duo bottles are perfect because they are glass on the inside and plastic on the outside. Plus, they’re great for transition from breast to bottle if you are breastfeeding!

DUO, the first-of-its-kind hybrid baby bottle, provides the purity of glass and convenience of plastic in one unique bottle. A breakthrough medical glass technology permanently bonds a micro-thin inner layer of INVINCI-GLASS to a premium plastic bottle, making it breakproof yet lightweight. aby’s milk touches pure glass – shields milk from plastic. Won’t shatter, chip, crack, or flake. Laser etched calibrations & decorations – no ink fading or chipping. No nasty smells or aftertaste. Stays clear – won’t stain or discolor. Long-lasting, durable and breakproof. Lightweight and comfortable to hold for both parent and baby. Intui-Latch nipple positions baby’s tongue and lips for a natural, intuitive latch. Skin-like texture helps baby stay latched. Anti-Colic valve vents air way from nipple to increase feeding comfort. Breast like flow makes it ideal for breast to bottle feeding.

Crib Mattress Protectors

In addition to a crib and crib sheets, you’ll need a few crib mattress protectors. I’ve found this brand to be the best kind to have and I always keep more than one on hand for washing and other purposes. These fit the mattress snug so safe sleep guidelines are followed, too! You’ll be much happier cleaning these protectors rather than trying to clean a soiled mattress.

Made of soft and breathable fabric which makes our crib mattress pad comfortable to touch, especially perfect for baby’s delicate skin. The quilted process of our crib mattress protector increases air flow and helps regulate sleeping temperature. NOISELESS toddler mattress protector keeps relativety quiet even when you baby is restless in the night. Thanks to the enhanced 4 layer design, our toddler mattress protector can fully protect moisture from baby’s skin faster and keep your mattress clean by absorbing spills, sweat and any liquids. Yoofoss waterproof crib mattress protector is combined with cushioned comfort to ensure a better night’s sleep. Our waterproof crib mattress cover is easy to clean up after occasional night time accident. We use strong, reinforced threads, protected waterproof lining and top notch fibers to make it a soft but long-lasting crib mattress protector that will never shrink even after hundreds of washing and drying cycles!

Baby Monitor

There are SO many baby monitors out there! Video ones, audio only, WiFi ones, etc. With all of the choices, you’re probably overwhelmed. I have one that I recommend – the Infant Optics video monitor! This monitor is efficient, easy to set up and perfect to keep an eye on your little one while they sleep.

Brought to you by the leaders in the baby monitor industry, the DXR-8 is a dependable choice that offers a balance between size, weight, video and audio performance. Software and hardware refined over years of iteration from customer feedback. Plug and play – no setup required, perfect for travel. Features interchangeable lens technology. Unlike internet cameras, the DXR-8 offers zero load time delay-free playback on a dedicated monitor screen. 100% digital privacy, safe from hackers.

Sound Machine

I never realized the importance of a sound machine until I had my 2nd in 2020. I learned a LOT about infant sleep from Taking Cara Babies (I highly recommend her courses), and this is where I learned about the importance of a sound machine.

The Hatch+ is an essential! Not only is it a sound machine, but it is a nightlight. Plus, it is controllable from your phone which makes it definitely something that you need/want for baby! You have a variety of white noise type sounds, so whatever suits you and your baby best is the right one for the job. As baby grows, it can turn into a “time to wake” alarm so that your kiddo knows when it is time to get out of bed. All around, this is a MUST have!

What Should I Add?

This is definitely not an all inclusive list of must haves. However, these are items that you should be sure to add to your baby registry. What are some of your baby must have items? Outside of clothes, what are some of the essentials?!
