I’m over half way through my second pregnancy (25 weeks) and in full-on nesting mode. Decorating the nursery, organizing everything in the house, and making lots of lists. I’m a total planner and want to make sure I have everything I need for when baby #2 arrives. Which has got me thinking a lot about some of my must-have products for baby and mom. I’ve partnered with BabbleBoxx to share 5 must-have products for any new mom. These are all products that I’ve used with Hazel and will continue to use with baby #2 🙂
1) Baby Wipes
You will be wiping your baby’s bottom a lot, so it’s important to stock up on wipes. Trust me, you can’t have too many baby wipes on your baby registry. I discovered bloom Baby wipes when they arrived in my BabbleBox and they are amazing! They are thick yet soft and gentle. And they’re natural made with clear energy and glacial water. I am so impressed with the quality of these!
2) Baby Cereal
Beech-Nut baby cereal is the best first food when introducing your baby to solids. It’s organic so you know you’re feeding your baby the best. We also liked that it has a built in measuring cap to make portioning/serving your child easier. Beech-Nut baby cereal is one of the items I would toss in my diaper bag if we were going to be out of the house during a meal time. And once baby #2 is born and gets big enough to eat cereal, I know it will be a meal time staple again.

3) Diaper Rash Ointment
You might not use this for every single diaper change, but when your baby gets a diaper rash, this stuff is a life saver! It will help protect and heal the rash quickly. I keep this big tub of it at our changing table and I keep a smaller tube of it in my diaper bag.
4) Skincare Products for Mom
As a new mom, it’s important to remember to take care of yourself too, especially because your changing hormones can wreak havoc on your emotions and skin. Vichy’s Mineral 89 and Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream are two great products for everyone, especially new moms. They made my skin feel so moisturized and like it was brought back to life. The Mineral 89 boost hydration, plumps, and fortifies skin, plus it’s paraben-free. The Aqualia Thermal Rich Cream is a face moisturizer with mineralizing thermal water and hyaluronic acid. It’s great for sensitive skin and provides a lot of extra hydration. Use these two products together and your skin will thank you.

5) Oball Rattle
This Oball Rattle was the first toy Hazel actually grabbed herself and played with. It was so cute! I’m excited to see baby #2 play with it soon too 🙂 It’s a great sensory toy for babies because it’s easy for them to grasp. It’s also easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth and mild soap. We brought it with us everywhere…to restaurants, friends houses, etc. It’s the perfect item to add to your registry or gift to an expecting mom. I always like to gift new moms baby toys, and this is one of my favorites to give.
If you’re a mom, I’d love to hear if you’ve tried any of these products too and what your must-haves are 🙂
