Shopping for baby can be quite an overwhelming task. Who knew there could be so many options for… well everything? Erica is the researcher in the family and she poured hours into blogs and product reviews searching for the perfect items. I (Dave) decided to return the favor to the baby blog world and offer up our findings. In the first 3 month’s of little Coen’s life, a few items emerged as essential in our household (measured of course by frequency of use). The following list features our top 10 pick items (in no particular order) for new and expectant parents.

  1. Wubbanub Infant Pacifier – Foxir?t=baktelsto-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B011IWWT02 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried? Our Family Our Life Washington DC
    A boy’s best friend. This little fox goes with us everywhere. Coen holds on to it for dear life. It’s his comfort. I like to think he’s dreaming up the next big adventure with Mr. Fox.wubbanub 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried? Our Family Our Life Washington DC

  4. Auto Rock ‘n Play Sleeperir?t=baktelsto-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B01H63HGY6 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried? Our Family Our Life Washington DC
    It’s now recommended that baby sleeps in your room for the first six months of their lives to minimize the risk of SIDS. I know, you just decorated such a cute nursery and they likely won’t be using it all for the first few months. It begs the question where should baby sleep? The Auto Rock ‘n Play is the answer (emphasis on auto). Laying your newborn down is already like handling a swaddle wrapped bundle of dynamite. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of the auto rocking feature of this product.rock-n-play 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried?

    Before having a baby, my only real exposure to Burt’s Bees was the lip balm. I had not idea they made the softest baby burp cloths in the universe. These are by far my favorite.IMG_1747 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried? Our Family Our Life Washington DC
  6. Boppy Nursing Pillowir?t=baktelsto-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B000KW5I6E 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried?

Our Family Our Life Washington DC
    This is definitely a high-frequency use product. Everyday. Multiple times a day. It definitely helps out mom, but it’s also a great spot for tummy time and for the little guy to bask in his milk drunk state post feeding. Make sure to pick up a few extra slipcovers as well – you’ll need them.boppy 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried? Our Family Our Life Washington DC

    Rub a dub dub Coen’s in the tub. This Boon Naked Bathtub was gifted to us by some dear friends and we love it.

    We’ve tried a lot of Swaddles, but Coen started out with the SwaddleMe original and it worked great. Then he graduated. And graduated again. We will post more about the swaddle journey later.

    For the times when your baby poops and pees on the changing table all at the same time – this is the changing pad you wished you had. Wipes up in seconds, no fabric to clean.peanut 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried? Our Family Our Life Washington DC
  10. Diaper Genieir?t=baktelsto-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B0169U11QQ 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried? Our Family Our Life Washington DC
    Okay, so from a frequency of use measurement, diapers are probably the most used item. I think that’s a given. In the first few days of Coen’s life, I (Dave) went literally from 0 to 100. Yes, I had never changed a diaper before and now I’m practically a pro. This is where you put them after use. Not pictured for obvious reasons.

 

BONUS: Speaking of diapers and changing pads, ever hear of The Windiir?t=baktelsto-20&l=am2&o=1&a=B007RAGALO 10 Must Have Items for your 0 to 3 Month Old Baby Baker Stories Feature Have You Tried? Our Family Our Life Washington DC ? Just read the following Amazon review. Enjoy.
