It doesn't matter if you are having your first baby or your 6th. These are the things that I feel all moms should have in their arsenal of baby supplies!

4. Rockin Baby Sling
I used mine with both boys, from the time they were born until they were almost two. When they were tiny they would fall asleep next to me every time I put them in it, I could use both hands to do chores and I never had to worry about them. When they got bigger, I can throw them on my hip, tighten the strap and still use both hands to do my chores. They wanted to be in my arms, and with this I could still do what I needed to do. I love this sling because it can be used by myself or Steve, it comes in so many colors, it's comfortable and the boys love it, Plus, it didn't separate their legs when they were tiny. I hate those carriers that have a huge strap between their legs, it just doesn't look healthy for their tiny legs.

8. Tiny Diner
9. Chicco Hippo Hook-on
These are amazing little highchairs! They fold up flat, and have a carrying bag. We take ours to WV and NJ when we visit the families. They don't have highchairs for us, so we carry along our own. It fits on any table, and is safe and doesn't hurt the table. We also take it to the beach with us, hook it up to a picnic table and it is as safe as any other highchair. Since it folds flat, you can put it in the back of your car and use it anytime you need a high chair. It doesn't leave marks on the table either. We have put it on some pretty nice tables, and it has never hurt a thing.
10. Gown sleepers
These little sleepers are life savers when you have to change a diaper every 2 -3 hours, or more. They are the easiest thing to use with little ones. You have all those cute outfits, but they are so hard to change when there is poo up the back, or down the leg, whatever the case. I use the gowns when I'm at home and until they can't fit into them anymore.
I hope this helps those of you that are having your first baby or your 20th, whatever the case may be. I have found these are the items I couldn't live without. I don't think you need a ton of those fancy things like a diaper genie, and such. Who wants to smell those diapers when you take them out? Not me! I put mine in a Wal-mart bag and take it right out to the garbage. There are so many products out there. You live and learn, and I think it gets easier with each child. There are things I registered for with my first, that I never used, but thought I needed. With the second there were things like the co-sleeper that I wish I had for the first one, but didn't know about. I'm sure I'll find new things with the next one, that I wish I had for the other two, but only time will tell. At least I have the most important things, for now. On a quick side note, you can never have to many white onesies!
Have a great day! ♥ BJ
