Baby Registry Items: Must Haves

Before baby girl arrived, I could only guess what the best items were to register for. Everyone has advice on the must have registry items out there, but the truth is: you know your baby best! My husband and I know, without any hesitation, what works best for our daughter. SO! These items are what work for us. Once your baby arrives, you'll quickly learn his or her preferences. 
Sound machine - My hubby and I have always used this one and I definitely recommend it. It sounds like the hum of a fan, in my opinion, and totally drowns out distracting noise. Kensie must have heard it when she was in my womb because these days, she loves the thing and always falls asleep quickly when the machine is on. 

Humidifier - Since baby girl sleeps in our room, our noses thank this little number for keeping us from getting too congested. It holds plenty of water to last a couple of nights, but also has a light inside that tells you when it's empty. 

Swing - Kensington sleeps in this bad boy every single night and loves it. I can't say enough good things about it. If your baby doesn't sleep well, or if you wanted to experiment with different sleeping arrangements, it may be worth a shot! 

Wipe warmer - Everyone said, "don't buy a wipe warmer... it will spoil your baby." But I strongly disagree. That is the silliest thing I've ever heard. Unless you're living on the road, or change you baby at a different location every single time, then what's the harm in having your child's wipes warmed up a little bit? Kensington is so much happier when the wipes are warm. We love this one

Now that you've seen my list, do you use any of these for your little one? Or do you swear by another product? I want to hear from you!

  3. So funny, everyone has been telling me the same thing you were told about the wipe warmer. They all say it's a waste of money, space, and we'll never use it. But after reading this, maybe I need to reevaluate and add it to our registry after all!

  5. Not yet but I can't wait to find out what our little one prefers. The hubby always has to sleep with a white noise app. We use to have a little fan that just made the noise but it burned out. Maybe this little guy will be just like his father.

  7. I really like being able to wear my babies. The SollyBaby wrap was my favorite when my second daughter was an infant. Now that she's older (10 months), I like using our Ergo. My husband likes using the Ergo, too. So happy to hear your sweet girl is giving you some good sleep at night. :)
