My Must Have Baby Registry Items for New Moms

I have a few friends having babies and I decided I should share my all time favorite, must have items that I got off our baby registry!!!

#1. Summer Infant Hand Video Monitor
My hands down absolute favorite must have item is this baby monitor. It is the BEST!! I don't know what I would do without it!! I love it because I have always been able to watch Levi when he cried during a nap or at night - and I can tell if he will put himself back to sleep or if I need to go up!! It is expensive - but well worth it. You can carry the monitor around with you and when the baby comes I can buy an extra camera and have both of them on different channels but on the same handheld!!! It comes in blue and pink!!

#2. Adiri Natural Nurser
I loved breastfeeding but wanted to have the option to leave Levi with John or my family. This bottle is shaped like a breast. There are 3 different stages - the 2nd and 3rd stages will gradually make the milk flow faster and faster. The Stage 1 nurser has a slow milk flow so the baby doesn't prefer the bottle over your boob. Levi took the bottle and the boob from day one!!!

Some of the reviews on this bottle aren't great because you definitely have to get used to how different it is from other bottles. You have to hold them upside down to fill them up and you have to make sure you get the lid on right or it will spill. Once you get it down they are awesome. I had 3 bottles in each Stage.

#3. Nursing Covers

Back in the day when I was pregnant with Levi these Nursing Covers were pretty new and I could only find them online at specialty stores. Now they are everywhere. This is awesome for the times when you have to breastfeed in public. They are also called Hooter Hiders - which everyone thinks is hilarious if you share that name!!!

#4. Bumkins Super Bib
If you have kids you probably know that these bibs are the absolute best!! You can wash them in the sink or throw them in with laundry! They now have 2 different sizes - one for babies and one for toddlers!! They have them in lots of fun colors for girls and boys!! A little expensive...but well worth it!!
