The last 6 months have been a wild ride and so much fun. We are absolutely obsessed with our little nugget and we can’t stop taking pictures of her! Before she came into the world, I spent hours looking for blogs about the best baby products. That is not what this is. There are plenty of other qualified bloggers out there with amazing reviews on the best baby products, but we just wanted to share a few of the things we use regularly. Many of these we use every day, and we 10 out of 10 would recommend to any new parent!
So here goes, what we think are the top 5 best baby products and new parent needs in their life!

One of the items that we use every day, for every nap, that travels with us in the car, is our rechargeable sound machine. It was one of the best purchases. This sound machine has three different sounds and adjustable volume. It clips right onto the stroller or can hang next to the crib. It’s small and compact and easy to toss in the diaper bag. Perfect for our on the go lifestyle!
When we picked out our stroller, the main thing was making sure Lindsay could pick it up and put it in the car by herself. Baby stuff can be heavy, and there are so many different kinds of strollers and options out there. We wanted something that was not too heavy, fit in our car, and could grow as Ellie grew! We ended up with this one!
This was a game-changer for us! Somebody recommended these to us, and we are so grateful that they did! In the middle of the night, when it’s so dark and she’s crying, it’s easy to find her pacifier because they glow-in-the-dark. We bought three packs of these so we can toss a couple in the crib and we are able to find them when it’s pitch black. They do come in different colors, not just pink!
We love our nightlight because it is rechargeable, it’s an easy touch on and off, and Ellie’s fingers don’t get tangled on any chords. It has multiple settings and multiple intensities. For a while, we used it as a night light. Now it’s great when we have to change her diaper in the middle of the night but we don’t want to wake her up too much! We love that there are settings that will change colors that can also grab her attention when she’s squirming in the middle of a diaper change!
We use Aquaphor every single day. When I say every single day I mean every… single… day. We have Aquaphor in every room of the house, in both cars, in her diaper bag, and anywhere else you can think of. Our favorites are the large tub and on the go tubes. We use Aquaphor for any and every bump or rash. We feel like it is a must-have for any new parent! There are a lot of other products out there, but we have felt that Aquaphor has been the best one-for-all product!
Pacifier clips are so important to us especially when we are out and about. We don’t have to worry about Ellie’s pacifier falling out and hitting the ground! Something really small and simple can save us if she drops her pacifier and we don’t have any extra in the bag (pro tip: always have extra!)
It’s the little things, people. We hope this helped, even just a little!
