Preparedness is everything when you’re a new parent, and we have ten fantastic recommendations for products you will not want to be without when baby comes!


Baby needs somewhere to sleep, and preferably it’s not your own bed for very long! A crib is a must-have for new parents. This is going to be baby’s home and safe sleeping quarters for a good while to come.

Baby Monitor

You’ll want to be able to grab your eighth cup of coffee of the day with ease, but you may be hesitant to leave your baby to take a snooze in her new crib. A baby monitor will allow you to move freely about your house with the ability to monitor baby’s every sound.


Food is going to be everywhere. You can trust that. In baby’s hair, in yours, all over baby’s body…bibs are a nice way to keep at least some part of your baby’s food from getting all over her clothes and then yours. Think of bibs as a catcher’s mitt of sorts for food of all sorts!

Rocking Chair

This is another furniture essential for baby’s room, as baby is not going to be in that crib full time. A rocking chair allows for a soothing rocking motion to help put your baby to sleep. It is also a welcome seat for Mommy while she feeds the baby or simply tries to put baby to sleep.

Baby Bullet Blender by Magic Bullet

Puree fresh baby food in seconds for your little one with the Baby Bullet blender. Food from a jar is no longer necessary with this phenomenal tool. Baby will get so many wonderful nutrients as a result.


This one is a no-brainer. You want to get out of the house but keep your back in tact, correct? Buy a stroller and not only will your back thank you, but baby will be soothed to sleep (we hope!) with the smooth motion of a stroller during long walks.

Diapers on demand, anyone? With free shipping and typically overnight shipping on orders of $49+, this website is going to be one you frequent.

Car Seat Booster

Drive baby around safely with a car seat booster. Every new parent needs one (and the training to know how to use it!).
