your recommended baby essentials!

a few weeks ago, i shared a first peek at what’s on my baby registry. i’ll be sharing my full registry soon, but in the meantime i had asked all of you via this IG post what your favorite baby essentials were! i received SO many great recommendations, i thought i’d share a few of the top products here. i know these items must be good if they are tried-and-true from mommas all over! the best part!? they are all available via Walmart’s personalized baby registry, which has so many brands to choose from, price points for every lifestyle, and really is a one-stop shop for all your baby must-haves.

it’s super quick and easy to register, and there’s lots of recommendations if you’re just getting started and don’t quite know where to start. hopefully this post and my previous Walmart registry will help, too! let me know below if there’s anything else you simply can not live without as a mom! i’m all ears :]

you can click on each item in the collage below and scroll to read why i’m including these products! xx

1. WaterWipes: these wipes are super gentle and came highly recommended by many of you who have babies with sensitive skin. i’ve also heard really good things about the Pamper’s Pure Aqua wipes.

2. Noodle and Boo: many said this was the best baby lotion for sensitive skin! since i have super sensitive skin, i’m pretty sure Baby Tripp will too. want to make sure i’m stocked up!

3. Boppy Nursing Pillow: a must-have for nursing mamas! plus, it comes in a ton of different patterns on Walmart.com. also really great for tummy time!

4. Burts Bees: i’ve heard really good things about their all-natural products! from their shampoo & wash to diaper rash ointment, these products are gentle and apparently smell amazing.

5. Dockatot Deluxe: it blew my mind how many of you recommended this product! it seems to be a favorite with pretty much everyone, so i’m sold! so many moms told me they use this to get things done around the house when baby is sleeping, put it inside a crib or bassinet, and great for tummy time, too!

6. white onesies: pretty much everyone has told me to stock up on white onesies from newborn to six month size or so! apparently that’s mostly what Baby Tripp will wear on a day-to-day basis!? guess we will see, haha! it’ll never hurt to have too many plain onesies. love that these are organic cotton!

7. Ubbi Diaper Pail: quite a few preferences for this diaper pail over the Diaper Genie, but i’m sure either is great and does the trick.

8. Hatch Baby Night Light and Sound Machine: i included a sound machine on my last registry as well, but so many moms recommended his one since it’s both a night light and sound machine. it’s been ordered and i’ll let you know how Baby Tripp likes it in a few months!

9. Fridababy Basics Kit: an entire kit dedicated to the health of baby!? yes, please! comes with a snot sucker, nail clippers, gas relief and skin soother. i’ve heard amazing things about this brand!

10. HALO SleepSack Swaddle: i included the actual HALO Bassinest on my last registry {which is being delivered to my house soon!}, but so many mamas suggested at least getting just the swaddle! apparently it’s a fan favorite for both moms and babies {and you can use in any crib/bassinet}.

thanks to Walmart for sponsoring this post!

    Not sure if you already have a high chair picked out, but you might want to check out the Stokke Tripp Trapp Chair. It is a chair that grows with your child once they are able to sit up with support. I love this chair as a mom and in my profession.

    Hey Sarah – you guys might want to check out the Stokke Tripp Trapp chair. My son used this from the time he could sit up with light support until he was 5-6 years old. Highly recommend as a parent and in my profession. It is also fun that it has your name!

    People love the Ikea high chair and buy etsy seat covers. Also a baby owlette, save a friend’s baby that stopped breathing.

    Onesies are great but when our baby was really little I hated putting things over her head!! I recommend getting the kimono type onsies. Also, living in AZ we live in a diaper and the occasional kimono t-shirt.

    If you end up formula feeding, the Dr. Brown’s formula mixing pitcher is great! After I went back to work we eventually had to start supplementing with formula and it was so much easier to prep a whole batch for the next day’s bottles than to mix each bottle individually. Huge time saver, and eliminates all those nasty formula clumps! I’ll speak for the halo swaddles too- my boy loved sleeping in them, and when he was ready to sleep unswaddled we switched to their sleep sacks. They’re awesome!
