Must Haves For First Time Moms & Parents
There are so many baby products out there – but these are the ones we swear by!
Anyone who’s ever been pregnant will tell you that there’s no shortage of baby and new mama products out there – everything from diaper warmers to a glove designed to feel like a human hand that “hugs” your baby to sleep. (Sidebar: no thank you!)
For first-time moms, the choice can seem overwhelming so we’ve curated a list of our must-haves and shared why we love them. These are the products we recommend to friends and buy again and again. As time goes on, you’ll need more, but we think it’s best to begin with the basics, and see how you go from there. We’re only ever a click away!

These wonder leggings are fantastic because they can be dressed up or down. Made with built-in core support and seamless moisture wicking fabric, you’ll stay cool and comfortable while looking stylish.
Coterie diapers are incredible because they offer maximum absorption and comfort while remaining free of common harsh diaper ingredients like fragrance, lotion, latex, rubber, dye, alcohol, heavy metals, parabens, phthalates, Chlorine, VOCs, and optical brighteners.
Just like their diapers, Coterie wipes are free of irritating ingredients. They’re also larger than standard baby wipes meaning you won’t have to use as many.
Being able to put your baby down in a safe place while you shower, get dressed, eat or simply take your first sip of coffee is one of the greatest gifts a parent can receive. Lucky for us, the DockATot Deluxe+ Dock is that safe (and cozy!) place.
The Nook Niche Organic Feeding Pillow is one of our favorites because it’s great for supporting your arms, neck and back while breastfeeding, but can also be used to help you find a comfortable sleep position or as a prop for when your baby is ready to start sitting up.
Ranging from $119 – $129
