The Baby Cubby: 5 Baby Products I Highly Recommend

When you find out you have a baby growing within you lots of emotions sweep in. Or maybe just more emotions on top of the pregnant hormonal mess you already unknowingly were. However one of the most fun emotions that kicked in real quick was the excited, shopping emotion.

You know the one.

This is a new life. A new person. He or she needs all the new things.

I wanted to buy it all, but knew that the budget would not allow for every single item I wanted to place in my real or virtual shopping cart.

So research and reviews.

Reviews and research.

And let's be really honest. I probably did way too much research just because looking up baby items was way more fun that doing dishes, washing laundry, scrubbing a toilet, picking up all....the....things....

I'm a really awful housewife!

So what items did I narrow it down to?

What items would I highly recommend?

1. The Mamaroo. 



Okay at first I really believed this was some highly glorified swing that was three times the price of one that would do the job. I was completely and ignorantly wrong. I did the research. Okay, people love this. I purchased it. I paid HOW MUCH FOR THIS? I birthed the baby and put her in this and it was completely magic.

I'm not kidding.

This thing was fantastic. I mean, if they ever decide to make an adult version I'll be all over it.

2. Boon Grass Counter Top Drying Rack



This thing has been AH-mazing. One of our best baby purchases. We love this little green plastic contraption. It has been fantastic to have in our kitchen for all of those baby, toddler and little kid items that we are constantly have to wash and then rewash and rewash and rewash. It truly helps with the drying time and looks so cute on our countertop. I'm all for things that look bright and fun.

I know that's a really random baby item, but seriously. It still holds its' spot on our counter five years later.

3. Group Baby Shower Gift Set

Can we talk about how perfect this bundle is?! I really would love to create another baby just to purchase this bundle. Since that is a no go, although husband would totally be up for the trying but not being able to succeed part....I'll just have to recommend it to all of you. 

First of all having a wrap of some kind is fantastic for those little ones. You can wrap them up all snug against you and it feels fantastic and warm and that baby just smells so amazing against you especially with that Gentle Baby essential oil on. Oh the memories! This bundle comes with the Happy Wrap which is a great one. I've used both the Happy Baby and Solly wraps. 

Then one of my most favorite EVER things I've had is Freshly Picked moccasins. They are beyond soft, beyond adorable and beyond perfect for little baby's feet. I love that this set incorporates our favorite baby shoe. 

A swaddle blanket in a floral print (the boy's set is dinosaurs!). Swaddle blankets were a must with all three of our babies. Our first loved to be wrapped up super tight and the other two just loved the lightweight feel of these blankets. We had summer babes so these were perfect to toss in the diaper bag and have to cover them up for nursing, over the car seat or stroller to keep the sun out and more. 

And lastly, bottles. I was fortunate to be able to breastfeed my girls but my first, my son I wasn't able to. Having quality bottles is so important. However I would also pump and give bottles to my girls because let's face it...momma needs some momma time or some time with just her man. Being able to have a few hours of freedom every once in awhile was a must. Grace and self love mommas!





Okay...I know. Brand new babies do not need puzzles. But buy this now and be prepared for their first birthday when they are getting all those big, plastic toys that you are already plotting on how to get rid of. I'm a mom. I know these things.

These puzzles by Petite Collage are precious and so much fun for little minds. We adore them.

5. A Fantastic Diaper Bag




This item for some reason always got pushed to the end of my list and I always regretted it. I think having something that is also FOR YOU is extremely important. I would buy what bags I could currently afford but didn't completely love. So I highly, highly recommend you find a bag that makes your heart skip a beat and BUY IT.

This was my dream bag.

Baby Cubby has so many amazing options that you could fill a very large cart with. Again...it makes me want another baby!
