Updated Favorite Baby Products

I haven’t written one of my baby lists in a while and as my baby is turning one in a few days, I began to look around and make a mental list of all my #1 baby products that I would go to directly for my next baby. If there will be one… So let me dive right in!

  1. Dr. Brown’s Options Narrow Feeding Set, clear– These bottles are my holy grail!! The straw in them helps to reduce air bubbles and makes the whole feeding process smoother. It is a little more to clean but so worth it.
  2. Dr. Brown’s One Piece Silicone Pacifier, 0m+, Blue, 3 Pack– If you are going to use pacifiers there are so many ones out there to choose from and every baby is different but these work like a dream for me. It is shaped just like the bottle nipple so it just works so well. You can easily go from bottle to paci with no crying in between.
  3. Gerber Good Start Gentle Non-GMO Powder Infant Formula, Stage 1, 23.2 Ounce (Pack of 6)– If you are choosing to use formula or if you aren’t able to breastfeed for as long as you would like, as in my case, you will need to pick out a formula. I did a ton of research and compared ingredients and prices amongst many different brands and decided to use gerber myself. It worked so well for my son but of course every baby is different.
  4. Baby Dove Tip to Toes– This is the BEST baby wash! Super gentle and smells so good. I found that some washes could be a little drying but this one is amazing! I would definitely recommend to everyone!
  5. Eucerin Baby Eczema Relief Body Creme 5.0 Ounce – If your baby ever gets dry patches, look no further. They don’t have to have eczema to use this body creme. It really is amazing and you will notice a difference so quickly!
  6. Desitin Baby Diaper Rash Maximum Strength Original Paste, 4 Oz Tube– Eventually every baby needs a little diaper rash cream and desitin is my personal go to. It can be used for more than just red bums, I’ve used it in little mans neck where it would get a little raw from drool. It can be a full time job just trying to keep babies dry.
  7. HUGGIES Little Snugglers Baby Diapers, Size 1, 216 Count– I mean… You have to diaper your baby.. I like huggies and after trying pampers and honest brand, I personally just can’t use any other brand but huggies. They are my favorite!
  8. Fisher-Price Deluxe Bouncer, Soothing Savanna– Having a little chair like this one while little man was small was a life saver. I would definitely recommend investing in a bouncer chair.
  9. Lansinoh Lanolin for Breastfeeding Mothers, 1.41 Ounce (Pack of 2)– Lastly I had to add this for my breastfeeding mamas. This stuff beats anything out there for saving your nips and I even use it for saving chapped lips!!! It seriously can’t be beat!!

That is all my tops at the moment. I know there are lots more but things like cribs and rockers are going to be up to your personal style. I am sure I will do more of these. Please let me know in the comments if you like these types of lists!

Pack List for Road Trips

Packing for long trips is not always easy if you are a last minute packer. Being 4 hours on the highways deep is not the time you want to realize that you forgot something. Luckily for you friends I am a crazy compulsive list maker!! I am getting ready for a trip to Ohio to see my family and friends and being the crazy list maker/packer I am, I have already packed my 3.5 month old son and myself! Here is my pack list for babies:

  • Clothing and socks- 7-10 outfits (We will be out of town for a little over a week and have access to a washer and dryer) My rule of thumb is about 3-4 outfits more than the days you will be gone if you can’t wash clothes.
  • Nightys– I love these things! Trust me if you have to change a diaper in the middle of the night the last thing you want to mess with is zippers and snaps. These are a must!
  • Burp Cloths and Bibs. I have said it before, I like using cloth diapers for burp cloths and these bibs are bomb! My baby boy is beginning to teeth so this catches the drool and gives him something to “chew” on.
  • Diapers and Wipes– a must. I am a huggies girl personally, but you use what you like of course!
  • Soap, Lotion and gel– I like to use aveeno because bubby is so dry and I like that aveeno is a more natural option and the baby oil gel keeps him moisturized all day.
  • Towels and Wash rags– Of course you don’t necessarily need a baby version, you can use regular towels and wash rags but if you have the space to pack and want to you have that option.
  • Bottles and a cleaning brush- These are my favorite bottles. Of course you don’t need to bring bottles if you exclusively breastfeed.
  • Formula- If you formula feed or supplement then you will need to bring this!
  • Pack n Play– So I am not a huge fan of these because I guess I always think of people putting their babies in them and using them like a dog kennel. But I do use it while traveling so bubby will have his own bed. He is too big for the bassinet part so that stays home.
  • Pacifiers, hair brush, saline spray, and vit. d drops- basics we use everyday, vit. d drops if you breast feed.
  • Breast Pump– if you breastfeed or pump. I am an exclusive pumper. I’ll share my story sometime! I really love my medela.
  • Car seat- is a must
  • Stroller- if you need, I don’t use mine much
  • Bottle Warmer– Not necessary but it is nice to have when you are reheating breast milk.
  • Baby Monitor– I put Bubby down for a nap and stay up later than his bed time so having his monitor is great!

That is pretty much it guys! I know it seems like a lot but I get it packed in Small Getaway bag from Lucky Brand. Lucky is my favorite brand but before you see this price and judge me, I got one like this but it is an old style they don’t sell anymore and I got it on clearance!!

If you would like me to send you my list in a PDF form just comment or email me and I would be more than happy to send you a check list. If you think I forgot anything let me know! I was going for more of the things that are needed not extras. Like of course I will bring some toys but its not necessary.

Also I am not sponsored by any of these brands. I just shared what I personally use and love and what works for my family. Target is the main store I have to shop at in my town so if I don’t get my stuff from there then I get it from amazon and occasionally walmart.
