I hope you are having a wonderful Tuesday! It’s always hard to kick off the week after such a fun weekend full of friends & family, but for me it’s one week closer to meeting my little boy so bring it Tuesdays! I have my anatomy scan this week & i’m so excited to see how much our nugget has grown. We are half way there at 20 weeks and I just can’t believe how time has flown so far. The second trimester has been so nice, I have so much more energy & a MUCH bigger appetite, grow baby grow!
I am a going to be a first time mama and was a bit overwhelmed at how much baby stuff is out there! Am the only one!? I mean really it’s insane. Sometimes I wish someone would just tell me all of the most essential things that I need for baby boy! Luckily I have many mama friends that gave me some advice on just a few things that were life changers for them and their littles!
First up on the list is the DockATot!
My husband & I have already made the decision to not co-sleep but the DockaTot has so many more uses than just a co-sleeper! I received the Deluxe Plus Dock in Marble, which fits babies ages 0-8 months. It’s so lite, portable & perfect as a traveling bed for baby! Not to mention it’s great to put baby in while getting ready for the day!
Next up is the Binxy Baby!
Y’all I can already tell that this is going to be a life changer when it comes to going shopping! It’s a sweet little sling that you hook onto you shopping cart and strap baby into, no car seats needed for the grocery store, YESSSSSS!!! All of your groceries can fit right under your snuggly baby! Check them out at www.binkybaby.com
Number 3 on my list is the Ollie Swaddle!
Not only does it come in the sweetest little packaging, it makes swaddling baby SUCH a breeze! All you need to do is places baby in the middle of the swaddle and velcro across so he is nice and snuggly, all ready for bed! I received the Ollie Swaddle in Stone and I LOVEEEE the color! I’m so excited to use the Ollie Swaddle on baby boy, I have a feeling he is going to love it as much as I do! Click HERE to check out how it works!
Number 4 might just be my fav- a Saranoni Blanket!
They are truly the SOFTEST blankies on the planet and I cannot wait to bring baby boy home from the hospital all snuggled up! Stephanie has so many beautifully made blankets in so many colors and prints! Baby boy’s nursery is a palm theme so I had to go with the navy and Palm blanket! It’s just so sweet & soft! I honestly can’t say enough great things about these blankets, your little needs one asap!
Last up are a pair or 2,3,4,5 of Freshly Picked Mocs!
Y’all I have always been obsessed with the Freshly Picked mocs. The second I found out we were expecting a baby boy I ordered a pair of the Oxford soft soles in Cedar just for him! They are so soft and go perfectly with almost ever outfit! I am so excited to see baby boy in his tiny Mocs come December!
I know I will be adding SO many things to this list, but I already feel so much more prepared for sweet baby boy to join our family! I would love to hear what your favorite baby essentials are so I can add them to my collection 🙂 Comment below or on our insta with your baby essentials!
