When I found out I was pregnant with Kaia I immediately began searching for all the must have baby gear. It was a whole new world for me and felt so overwhelmed with so many things to choose from. Thanks to all my mommy friends, they really helped me to decide on what products worked best for them and I found a few of my own favorites! Today I’ve teamed up with Dr. Brown’s to share some of my must haves to add to your baby registry!

GB Asana35 AP Infant Car Seat: This will be the most important purchase that you will make. We love the FirmFit Arm and Firm Fit Load Leg; giving us the peace of mind of the extra layer of safety it provides, not to mention it’s lightweight and sporty chic.

HALO Bassinest Swivel Sleeper: We love all the features this bassinet has. It rotates and swivels 360 degrees to bring baby to you, perfect for small spaces, includes nightlight, 3 soothing sounds, 4 lullabies, nursing timer and 2 levels of vibrations, all with 30-minute auto shutoff. Kaia loves the vibration!

Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets: These are must have for every newborn! It helps comfort Kaia when she’s swaddled and makes a perfect lightweight blanket that is breathable.

Dr. Brown’s Deluxe Bottle Warmer: This comes in handy for when baby is being bottle fed that warms her bottle up quickly, yet safely!

Petunia Pickle Bottom City Carryall Diaper Bag: Love this chic and stylish diaper bag. It has so many compartments and has a built-in changing station.

Dr. Brown’s Options Bottles: These are the only bottles we use! We like the vent system, which helps prevent gas and preserve vitamins. It’s great that it attaches to my breast pump too, leaving fewer bottles to wash.

LALABU Soothe Shirt: This shirt is genius!! I really like the all-in-one stylish top that helps soothe baby instantly and also used as a nursing bra. I highly recommend this to every mom with a newborn.

Dr. Brown’s Newborn Silicone Pacifier: We have to have extras on hand, because these are Kaia’s favorite. It really helps calm her down when she’s feeling fussy.

4Moms Origami Stroller: This luxurious stroller is one of my favorite things I got! It has so many gadgets, perfect for the tech mom. The power folding makes life so much easier and I get stopped every time I stroll Kaia in it. (Currently using it with the bassinet). It’s got a LCD dashboard, pathway and daytime running lights and charges itself and your phone.

Dohmie Sound Machine: We love how this helps not just baby get a good nights rest, but us too!

Babysoy Organic Clothes: These are great for newborns, giving them a comfort style using all sustainable fabric such as organic cotton and rayon from bamboo. Love their kimono styles!

Dr. Brown’s Bottle Sterilizer: This is perfect for sterilizing 6 bottles and does it in 12 minutes and so easy to use! It even has an accessory tray to hold nipples and pump parts. Fits most major bottle brands too!

BABYBJORN Baby Carrier One: When you need to run errands without lugging the stroller, this comes in handy. It has a 4 multifunctional front and back carrying, allowing you to safely carry your newborn to toddler.

Summer Infant Contoured Changing Pad: Instead of changing your baby on a rug or blanket, this 100% waterproof pad not only is a quick clean, it also keeps baby comfortable and secure.

4Moms MamaRoo Infant Seat: We wouldn’t know what to do without our little extra babysitter. When we need to do things around the house, this keeps her entertained and secured safely.

Dr. Brown’s Skin Care: This new line that they recently launched is amazing! Love that all the ingredients are all natural and the smell is lovely. The foaming baby wash is my favorite to bathe her in. (Baby Balm, Diaper Cream, Baby Lotion and Foaming baby wash)

Cake Maternity Candy Seamless Bra: I can’t live without these nursing bras. They are so comfortable to wear and so soft. Usually when I come home the first thing I do is take off my bra, but ever since wearing these, I don’t even bother. It’s a top fave!

Dr. Brown’s Disposable Breast Pads: These prevent leakage and really soft. I barely notice I’m wearing them and they are seamless.

Dr. Brown’s Drying Rack: This fits all of my Dr. Brown’s bottles, nipples and accessories, making for less spills and easy cleanup. The rack folds when not in use for easy storage.

4Moms Infant Tub: LOVE THIS! It has a built-in thermometer that indicates whether the water is too hot for Kaia. It also has side drains that allow dirty water to flow out while clean water flows in.

Dr. Brown’s Gia Nursing Pillow: A great nursing pillow that is angled, which may help aid digestion and help prevent reflux. It’s super comfortable and the covers are machine washable.
