Baby must-haves.

Now that Franky is over seven months old, I thought I'd round up a list of the items we used with him that we loved.
Of course, every baby is different, but these are my favorites.
Feel free to click each image to be taken directly to the item's description!
And yes, these are the exact makes and models of everything we own.
I truly love these products.
If you don't see it, we don't have it...(no crib, Bumbo, bouncy seat, or anything else that I finally realized by the third baby were pointless)
Oh, and we don't have crazy expensive swaddling blankets- I snagged a huge assortment of great quality blankets at Ross and Marshalls.
PS: New moms, Dreft isn't necessary.

I should really write a post about what I know about parenting now that I've had three.
Expect that post soon.


  1. I am so pinning this! After my first, I realized that a crib is pretty much a waste in our house too.

  2. This is so helpful! We're having a baby in July and have no idea what to register for! I tried clicking on the link to the stroller but it just goes to a general website not the product. Can you let me know what it is? :)

    1. Congratulations!! I'm so sorry- blogger FAIL. This is the Chicco Cortina with the KeyFit car seat attachment. <3

    2. thanks Kimmie!! no fail :)

  3. Maile is our one-and-only (for now). We bought SO much that we just. didn't. need. I feel like corporate America just makes a killing off of major life events: weddings, children, etc. Ugh. So sad!

    THIS is a fantastic little roundup, though!

  4. had no idea ergo had backpacks. Tell me more about it!!

  5. We don't have kids yet, but I hope these would useful for me soon..... :)

  6. It is amazing how even though each baby is different, there are a lot of things that are the same. We used a crib from the first night home, but the pump, pack & play, changing pad, Cal baby, boppy and ergo all have homes in my home!

    - although we recently switched from California Baby to Episencial. Probably another brand you'd like.

  7. Thanks for the list! And I'll definitely be buying those nail clippers! Those are just awesome.
