My Top 10 Baby Registry Must Haves

 Make a baby burrito and watch them drift into dream land. Swaddles can work wonders if you know how to wrap the baby the right way. Highly recommend Muslin swaddles by SwaddleDesigns because they are large and 100% cotton (meaning your baby won’t overheat, even in California weather).  

2. A good diaper bag- For the best way to carry around your baby’s essential items, Ju-Ju-Be diaper bag is my favorite!

3. Wee wee pads- Once in a while your baby WILL pee while you are changing their diaper. It’s inevitable. Wee Wee pads are great because they are disposable, large in size, and protect your changing table from a poop or pee explosion.

4. Butt paste- Boudreaux’s butt paste is God sent! If you see any sign of redness, apply some of the paste to the area and watch it be gone in no time!

5. Thermometer- Not only for checking to see if your baby has a fever , but also great for checking the temperature of your baby’s bathwater.

6. Nail clipper- Babies nails grow so fast! Using a nail clipper specifically for babies makes it super easy to trim their tiny, delicate nails.

7. A swing How to keep your child entertained while you get chores done around the house- put them in a swing. Keep in mind, these should not be used in replace of a crib, as it is not approved for safe sleeping. My daughter loves watching the lights and the mobile.

8. Pack n’ Play- We keep our pack and play at the edge of our bed. Our baby sleeps in it at night and her crib during the day. It makes it easier for us to get to her when we hear her first starting to wake up before she turns into a crying, hangry little monster. You definitely need one of these if you plan on traveling with a baby! It’s easy to fold and comes with a carry bag.

9. Burp rags- I have about 20 of these all over my house, that’s how often I use them. Great for spills, drool, and spit ups.

10. Bottle steamer- Even though they sell electrical steamers, I bought a microwave one (way cheaper and gets the job done). It’s an easy way to disinfect your bottles and pacifiers.

Finding the Perfect Diaper Bag

For me, picking out a diaper bag was extremely stressful (along with all of the other things I had to pick out for my baby registry). I was having my first child and had NO idea what I needed to buy. I made some mistakes (I’m sure all new parents do); I had a lot of unnecessary items on my list that I ended up not using but I learned my lesson (2nd child- I’m ready for you!). The one item that I’m glad I put on my registry and found most useful was the diaper bag. IMG_1443 (2)

I absolutely love my diaper bag by Ju-Ju-Be!

Not only does it look great, it’s also water proof (a must!), easy to clean, has plenty of room, and comes with a matching changing pad. It’s everything I learned I would need in a diaper bag.

At first I wasn’t going to add it to my registry because, well.. I’m not going to lie, it’s a bit pricey (around $180 bucks). But once the baby was here I soon learned that this bag was going to be my best friend (RIP pocketbooks!). But that’s okay because carrying around a handbag AND a diaper bag is just not possible or necessary if you find the right diaper bag. So if you think about it, it’s like buying a designer handbag except, you are actually putting it to use. It’s going to undergo a lot of wear and tear so remember: quality is important! IMG_1454 (2).jpg

What I love most about this bag is that it’s versatile; you can wear it as a messenger bag or a book bag. The straps are removable, but as you can see from my photos, that’s what the bag looks like if you keep them on. This bag was so worth the price! They sell a lot of other accessories (pacifier holder, smaller storage bags) that match this bag as well.  This diaper bag also comes in a variety of very stylish patterns to choose from- you forget it’s even going to be used to hold stinky diapers.

So if you’re wondering if a Ju-Ju-Be is worth the investment, it definitely is! Stay tuned for my next blog on diaper bag essentials.
