My Newborn Must Haves {+ a Giveaway!}

by Courtney on September 24, 2013

As hard as it is to believe, we are already approaching the two month mark on little Lucas’s arrival. I knew that time was going to fly by, but seriously?? How does it go by so fast?!

Lucas

In these past (almost) two months, we have certainly come across our fair share of items that have become more or less, lifesavers. Things that we really could not go a day without. So while it’d be easy to go on and on about ALL of the things that we’re loving for Lucas, I thought I’d put together a little list of my newborn must haves…things that I have absolutely, 100% needed in these past two months.

Summer Infant SwaddleMe blankets – Lucas loves being swaddled and these blankets have proven to be a lifesaver for us. They’re so much easier than doing the full swaddle with a blanket (like the ones below) and they keep our little Houdini from getting his hands out the top. I can’t say enough about these…we love them!

Aden & Anais Muslin Swaddles – Before Jay and I discovered the SwaddleMe blankets above (we registered for them, had them washed and in the dresser, yet didn’t realize they were there until almost two weeks in) we were exclusively swaddling Lucas in these blankets. They are just so incredibly soft, not to mention nice and big (forgiving for those less-than-stellar swaddles). We still occasionally swaddle him in these, but we also use them for just about everything else…so it’s a good thing we have about 12 of them, since we go through them super fast!

Sound Machine – We actually already had a sound machine in the house but weren’t using it anymore in our bedroom so we repurposed it for Lucas’s room. We have the one pictured below which isn’t targeted for babies, but it has all the same exact sounds as others that we checked out in the store. Lucas loves the sound of the rain falling, so we use that when putting him down for bed.

Diaper Genie – I had heard mixed reviews on this one but we wound up getting it at one of our baby showers so we stuck with it. So far, I totally love it. I haven’t experienced any sort of “foul” smells in his room (and he’s had some doozies) and it’s really easy to change. Whether or not it’s cost effective, I had no idea. But we love it.

Summer Infant Baby Touch Video Monitor – I registered for this monitor after having three of my close friends register for the same one and give it rave reviews. Now, I too, can attest to the fact that this is a great monitor. It’s easily portable and I love having the added video to see what the little man is up to.

Fisher Price Rock ‘n’ Play Sleeper – Since day one, Lucas has been sleeping in this sleeper. We initially used it so he could sleep in it next to our bed, and while he was only in our bedroom for the first two weeks, we continued to have him sleep in it in his nursery. I go back and forth all the time on when I want to transition him to the crib for good (we do some naps in the crib) but for now, he’s still sleeping in this for now.

Dr. Brown’s Bottles – We decided to register for these bottles after doing lots of research and receiving lots of feedback from many of our friends. The bottles have been fantastic so far for Lucas, he hasn’t had any trouble taking them, and we haven’t noticed any increased gassiness from using them either. While he’s not taking bottles everyday just yet, we’ve been using them occasionally so he can get used to taking them for once I’m back to work and will have to start pumping more.

Fisher Price Discover ‘n’ Grow Kick and Play Piano Gym – This was a purchase that came late in the game (I only bought it last week) but Lucas absolutely LOVES it. Since he is always moving (seriously, it’s probably the #1 thing that people comment on when they’re around him for more than 5 minutes), his constantly kicking feet have a blast rocking out on those piano keys. Plus, the mirror above provides him tons of entertainment. So while it’s not really a necessity, it’s amazing and had to be added to the list.

Babies”R”Us Gift Card Giveaway!

When we registered for all of our baby items (gosh, that seems so long ago now!), the majority of our items came from Babies“R”Us. I’ve had great luck with the store so far and it was so, so easy to complete the registry process.

Babies”R”Us has recently started a brand new promotion called The Sweetest Registry Deal Ever, which I’m excite to share with you all today. So what’s the advantage of this new deal?

  • Expectant parents and caregivers can earn up to $200 back on items purchased off their Babies“R”Us Registry created between now and November 15, 2013.
  • Moms can earn 10% back on purchases made off their Babies“R”Us Registry (up to $200). This will come in the form of an e-gift card approximately 10 weeks after their expected arrival date, enabling parents to purchase even more products and essentials for baby.

  • (You can also find out more info on the promotion by checking out their Facebook page and following them on Twitter)

To help spread the word about their new promotion, Babies”R”Us has offered to give away a $50.00 gift card to a lucky STSL reader!

I would use this gift card for my daughter – due Mar 2014 – there is so much to get

ALthough only 11 weeks pregnant, I am SUPER excited about this giveaway along with the $200 back when we register (which WILL be before November). I plan on uring the gift card to purchase some Swaddleme blankets as these are all I hear about! Plus, I think they will be easier to use for the husband when it comes time to wrapping baby instead of a larger blanket! Thanks, Courtney, for the recommendation!

Reply

3 Heather S September 24, 2013 at 9:12 am

I have a 20 month old little lady but am currently 23 weeks along with a little boy! This gift card would do wonders in the few things we need the second time around!

As for one of my must-have baby items, that would definitely have to be a breast pump. I’ve heard Avent and Medela are two popular ones I plan on looking into. Courtney, any suggestions on a great breast pump? Thanks in advance!

Reply

5 Courtney September 24, 2013 at 11:57 am

I have a Medela double electric pump and it’s great! I got it for free through my health insurance too, so I’d definitely recommend looking into that to see if yours is covered!

6 Alaina September 24, 2013 at 1:46 pm

Wow, thanks for answering! I definitely need to check into that! Did you get it paid for through a flex spending account or just submit a bill to insurance?

7 Courtney September 24, 2013 at 3:13 pm

I ordered it through a company and had it delivered to me so I never had to use my own money upfront :)

8 Heather S September 24, 2013 at 9:16 am

My must haves the first time around:
Swaddlers with Velcro because my baby was Houdini with busting out!
Vibrating bouncy chair…she loved that thing and as a huge toddler still tries to sit in it!
Nursing pads..unprepared for all the leakage with breast feeding!
Oh, and a whole lot of patience!

Hello! I love your blog! So…why I’d love the gift card… For starters…today is my birthday!! And, I am 35 weeks pregnant with a baby girl. We just moved to a new city…husband just got a job, which was a blessing! I just finished school and am having to wait to work until after our baby girl gets here…so things are tight! Lots of new exciting things and a gift card would be a blessing! Thank you & congrats on the handsome Lucas!

My “must have” item for a registry would be a baby carrier (Moby, Ka’Taan, whatevs). My babies lived in those things for the first three months, and really, it was the only thing that allowed me to have clean dishes and vacuumed floors.

All my must-haves are very similar to yours! We loved the SwaddleMe blankets, Aden & Anais blankets, sound machine, Diaper Genie, etc. Another one I’d add to our list is our Fisher Price Cradle Swing! It saved us in the early days of no sleep, and we still occasionally use it for naps.

My baby registry must-have that I would totally recommend- The 4MOMS Mamaroo! My twin boys LOVE this! Sometimes I wish we had 2! I love that it is adjustable and you can make the chair almost vertical (which helps with babies who spit up a lot after eating) and it has so many cool settings to move like they are riding in a car, being carried by a kanagroo, in the ocean, in a tree swing or like they are being rocked. You can play your iPhone or iPod through it too.

You already mentioned some of my must haves (muslin blankets, and the rock’n’play sleeper) but I would have to say we have loved our poppy pillow! Not only has it made nursing easier, but as he is getting older, he loves to just sit in it. Sometimes he will be chilling on the couch with mom, and just fall asleep in it!

I am going to have to go with the Rock N’ Play sleeper as well, Courtney! That thing saved our lives (son had reflux and had to be elevated, so this was the easiest solution). If I HAD to say something different than what you posted I would say our swing! It enabled me to make many dinners and just be able to rest my arms throughout those wonderful, although sometimes LONG newborn days:)

I don’t have a baby of my own but I am a NICU nurse so I’m quite familiar with newborns. I’d say the Swaddle Me swaddlers are VERY important. We even use them in our NICU. It allows parents to swaddle their babies quickly and safely. Lots of burp clothes are probably also important…seems like babies can make quite the mess during/after feedings.

I could not live without my “breast friend” pillow. The lactation consultant I met with at the hospital recommended it and it is amazing. I used the boppy with my son and planned to use it again, but I sat too low and would sit on the my c section incision. Well this pillow not only doesn’t so that but it locks into place and doesn’t slip like the boppy. I love it!

Great post. When I was pregnant with my son I checked out so many blogs to see what moms recommend. The rock-n-play sleeper was my favorite thing because I could have my son near me all night and also easily move it around the house during the day. He is now in his crib, but I woud recommend the sleeper over a bassinet any day!

A jogging stroller is on my must-have registry list! Seriously. I don’t know why we bought a regular old double stroller to begin with, we finally caved and spent more money on a nice jogging double and we use it for EVERYTHING, not just jogging!

I would get another playmat for my 4 month old. He is so busy! And I think the piano keys would entertain him.

My dearest old friend just has a week old baby. I would love to give her something soft and lovely.

My husband and I are expecting our first child in December, so I would either use the gift card towards purchasing whatever is left on our registry or diapers!!

SwaddleMe wearable blankets have come highly recommended to me as a must-have registry item!

This is an interesting post. I’m quite impressed with all the research you put into the baby items you purchased for Lucas and I’m happy to hear it paid back because they are on your list of must haves =)

I know you love the Rock ‘n’ Play but I am curious if you also have a swing and bouncy seat? We started to register and just lookin for advice.

We have ‘em all! The swing is really nice and was great around 3-4 months, but Lucas doesn’t really fall asleep much in it anymore and is usually too active to want to hang out in it now, haha. The bouncy seat was great for the first few months – definitely really portable and something I would totally recommend!

those summerme swaddle blankets are amazing. we swear by them, too (as well as the diaper genie and the fisher price cradle.

cb got the piano play mat for christmas. while i dont think she understands her constant kicking is making music, the tunes do seem to relax her and she also loves that mirror.

i think you sold me on the sound machine, too. i need to look into that.

YES! The SwaddleMe’s were a lifesaver. So, so great.

Are you using the Rock ‘n’ Play for CB to sleep in at night? If so, just a word of warning…it can be a bit difficult to get them to transition out of it as they get older! We learned the hard way and kept putting it off. And just now, at almost 6 months, we finally got him to transition to the crib at night (but it didn’t come without it’s troubles!).

Hope all is going well with the new babe!! :)
