The first couple weeks adjusting to motherhood are tough, really tough. So I wanted to share some of my favorite new baby and mommy products that have made mom life easier.

These products have also made motherhood a bit more sexy, because at some point you need to abandon your sweats and breast-milk covered onsies for a pair of shapely postpartum leggings and an adorable baby outfit that make both mommy and baby feel good about leaving the house!

New Baby Essentials for Traveling 

Bumbleride Speed Stroller — the name says it all, this running stroller it’s designed to let you run with your little one at your own pace. It’s the smoothest running stroller I’ve tried which is essential to helping Brody catch zzz’s while I get exercise. I’m excited to stay active and explore the world with little bug using our bumbleride, starting with our first trip to Huntington Beach, California in early May! And this mamma can’t wait till Brody can start yelling, ‘faster mommy, faster mommy.’ 

Milk Snob car seat cover and nursing cover

Milk Snob car seat + nursing cover — aka the most stylish hooter hider on the market that doubles as a carseat cover. I don’t think I’ll ever leave the house without this carseat and nursing cover. And it’s breathable, lightweight material is great for when my gassy baby decides to hot box mommy while nursing {you know what they say…like father, like son}. 

My Wild Bird Ring Sling — I’ll be honest, I’ve tried a couple baby slings and nothing compares to the Wild Bird Ring Sling! It’s so easy to put on and slide baby into; I can actually do it on my own versus needing a second set of hands with other slings I’ve tried. Not to mention I think it’s an adorable accessory where baby can safely snuggle in while giving me the freedom to cook, clean, or enjoy a cup of coffee. 


Dockatot — I previously shared the Dockatot in my nursery sneak peek post and I’m sharing it again as this is one of our most-used baby items! It’s a multi-functional lounging, playing, resting and snuggling dock for babies and tots 0-36 months. Since Brody was jaundice we used the Dockatot to move him around the house and keep him in the sunlight during most days. And if needed we’ll be using it as ‘his crib’ during our summer travels.

Backpack Diaper Bag With Insulated PocketsI randomly added this backpack to our Amazon baby registry and I’m so glad I did. It’s the perfect diaper bag, that even my hubby has loved carrying around. Not only is it the perfect size, but it’s loaded with compartments and pockets designed to carry all babies essentials; including insulated pockets for milk and bottle storage. 

New Baby Essentials for Bathtime

tubby todd and puj tub baby bath products

Tubby Todd bath products — If you’re looking for 100% natural bath products for baby and mama Tubby Todd is the way to go; and they have lots of deliciously unique scents. 

Puj Tub The baby tub that has made bath time so much easier. It’s made from a soft foam that folds and conforms to almost any sink. The Puj Tub cradles and protects Brody and makes me feel a lot better about my slippy bug squirming around during bath time. 

New Baby Essentials for Baby to Wear

Tea Collection Newborn Apparel

Tea Collection Newborn Apparel — globally inspired, well-made baby and kids clothing for all of life’s adventures. I mean if these aren’t the most adorable 0-3 month outfits you ever saw…let’s just say I’m anxiously waiting for my little bug to grow into these outfits! 

BittaKidda sleep sack

BittaKidda sleep sack — I think sleep sacks might be the greatest baby inventions ever. Although we are still swaddling Brody during the night, this BittaKidda sleep sack will come in handy as he grows. It includes two strategically placed flaps for self-soothing during the night. We are all about Brody self-soothing so mom and dad can get more sleep!

aden + anais swaddles

aden + anais swaddle blankets — do they make these soft and snuggly blankets in adult sizes yet?! Every experienced mommy I consulted suggested these aden + anais swaddle blankets as their favorite and now I know why. They are hands down the best swaddlers out there and I love how light and breathable they are. 

New Baby Essentials for Mommy to Wear

Bravado Designs Nursing Bras and Tanks

Bravado Designs Nursing Bras Nursing Tanks — if you follow me on Instagram you’ve seen me share my love for Bravado Designs Nursing Bras and Nursing Tanks; I’ve pretty much lived in them since the day Brody was born. They are the most comfortable and stylish Nursing Bras and Tanks I’ve tried on. I personally love how fitted there nursing tanks are!

Lalabu baby wearing Soothe Shirt + postpartum leggings — my husband and I refer to this as the ‘miracle kangaroo pouch’! Whenever Brody is fussy, I pop him in my Lalabu baby wearing Soothe Shirt {aka kangaroo pouch} and he’s instantly happy; and usually sleeping within 5 minutes or less. I think Brody loves this tank as it makes him feel like he’s snuggled up back inside my belly. As an added bonus this tank doubles as a nursing bra!

Lalabu also shared their postpartum leggings with me and I have to say these are the first pair of leggings I’ve actually felt amazing in with my postpartum body; they just hug you in all the right places {I especially love the high-waisted compression panel to support my postpartum belly}! 

New Baby Essentials for The Nursery

Paper Riot nursery decor

Paper Riot ABC Safari Wall Decals — easy and affordable wall decals to fill the blank spaces in your babies nursery. They are especially great for the design-challenged individual like me. They are so simple to apply and remove so you can change your mind and redecorate in minutes, no messy paint required!
