Nasiba’s Must-Haves For Baby #3
With Baby #3 on the way Tot Founder, Nasiba Adilova, is sharing her must have items from making a family of four into five.
Three years ago I had my third child, my first daughter. Around the same time I conceived The Tot’s new line of clothing, HART + LAND. Inspired by my initial quest to find clean, non-toxic and stylish pieces for my family, the line includes basics made out of organic pima cotton sourced in Peru.
If you’re like me and having a baby #3 – you’re going to want to read my list of must-have items below!
My must-haves for baby #3
Made of super-soft organic pima cotton, this long-sleeve bodysuit features overlapping shoulders, which make it easy to pull up over the head or down off the hips (if it’s a really big mess), as well as snaps at the bottom to make diaper changes a breeze.
Kimono bodysuits are perfect for newborns because they stay flat across their chests and won’t bunch up like a zipper. This Atelier Choux Organic option is easy to mix and match and best of all, gentle on baby’s skin.
You simply can’t live your life without a swaddle! Arguably the most versatile thing you can own, you’ll use one day in and day out for feeding, sleeping, travel, playtime and more.
I love the Bombol Bamboo Bouncer because it is a baby aid that can be used from newborn stage until your child outgrows it meaning you’re going to get plenty of use out of it – not just months. Designed with a breathable bamboo seat (that’s machine washable too!) and an aerospace grade aluminum frame and made to move without batteries, it’s easy to move around the house or take on vacation.
What I love about the non-toxic Natursutten Butterfly Rounded Pacifier is that the larger shield touches the nose and more closely mimics breastfeeding. It’s also made of natural Hevea rubber, has a one-piece design with no joints or cracks where bacteria can accumulate and it has no BPA, PVC, phthalates, chemical softeners, or artificial coloring.
Getting your child to sleep is probably every parent’s main goal in life. Since kicking the covers off seems like every baby’s modus operandi, the Dreamland Baby Weighted Sleep Swaddle helps keep them covered, warm and safe in their non-toxic and breathable fabric.
When I search for products for my babies, I always consider how it will aid in their development. That’s why I’m really into the Poppyseed Play Wooden Baby Gym. It comes with different toys that provide sensory stimulation and helps with hand-eye coordination.
We all know just how complicated and time-consuming sterilizing bottles can be, which is why I want parents around the world to know about the Wabi UV Bottle Sterilizer. Using UV rays, it kills the same bacteria as steam and sterilizers without the mess. You can even do your phone!
When my babies are newborns, I like to have them right by my bed. The Babyletto Gelato Portable Bassinet is height adjustable so you and your baby can find the perfect sleeping arrangement.
The Dockatot is the #1 baby item I recommend because it allows you to safely lay your baby down anywhere, anytime. Perfect for resting, tummy time, and playtime, it’s a cozy nest that will hold your little one snug and keep them from rolling.
If you’re after a bottle you know your baby will love, I say go for the Olababy Gentle Bottle. Designed to mimic the shape and flow of a woman’s breast, it’s completely non-toxic and a must have for bottle feeding.
I loved this wearable breast pump for sheet convenience. It’s an absolute must for providing some hands-free pumping freedom!
When your baby is ready to start eating solids, you’re going to want the Beaba Babycook! This magic steam cooker lets you make batches of food that can be stored and reheated on the fly. It also has a mixing blade that helps you achieve the optimal texture for baby.
