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!
