There are so many baby products to choose from in stores that it can get overwhelming, time-consuming and pricey. You’ll either just buy everything and most of it you’ll never use and let’s not forget you’ll break the bank. Or you’ll just say I’ll buy it if I need it and forget to buy it because baby brain will kick in. Here are my most recent new mom must-haves, and if you can think of any great ideas leave me a blog comment to help a fellow new mom out there. P.S The order of products doesn’t imply the best or least favourite, just listing based on memory. 

8 New Mom Must-Haves Including Non-Traditional Items

1. Dock-a-tot

I’ve been using the dock-a-tot for years now and it has come in so handy. Great for co-sleeping and perfect for laying your child down on when you need to step away and they love to roll. My toddler even loves it!

2. Baby Teethers

Other than the famous Sophie giraffe what are your other options? Well how about these cute and yet super unique ones by Picklesworth Baby:

We LOVE your custom orders for all the littles in your life 😍

3. Baby Brezza Food Maker

This food maker has saved me SO much time. No more steaming or boiling food separately and then blending. This is an all in one machine that will do everything for you in seconds. I love it. I’ll be sharing a full review of this soon and will drop the link here when it’s up.

4. Versatile Changing Mat

I love the gathre mats! They’re easy to clean and to travel with. I even keep one in my purse for times when I don’t want to take the diaper bag with me. Check them out:

5. Milestone Baby Cards

I love these Milestone cards! They cover every highlight you won’t want to miss taking a picture of. I’ve taken lots of pictures with my Baby Z and her milestone cards. You can purchase them here.


6. Fisher Price Baby Swing

I have both! The smaller one is amazing to bring to the washroom so you can watch your baby while you take a quick shower.

7. Nursing Cushion

This cushion came in so handy! I use it for nursing obviously but also it’s great for taking with you to the hair salon to support your baby in your lap while getting your hair done.

8. Shop Binxy

This innovative item is perfect for shopping with your little one. No more putting your car seat in the shopping cart! As a new mom it’s hard juggling a baby in a grocery story. Worry less and let your baby watch you do the shopping with this super cool way to place your baby in a shopping cart. Wish I had this for my first child.
