0 to 3 month essentials



My little munchkin man is going to be 12 weeks old this coming Saturday. Can you believe it?! Where did the time go? These past few months have been quite the incredible journey. There is honestly nothing in the world like being a mom. From the first time you hold your baby in your arms to their first smile, every little milestone is amazing. I can honestly say that I have never felt a love like this before, nor did I realize it existed. But with that being said,  being a new mom certainly has not been a walk in the park. The first three months with a newborn are utterly exhausting, emotionally and physically. In hopes of making those first few months a little bit easier, I've compiled a list of my personal newborn essentials for months 0 to 3. Enjoy!

__________

one / The Orbit Baby G3 Stroller is perfect for city living. The car seats, bassinet and stroller seat all fit on the stroller base without the use of an adapter. A couple of my favorite features are the paparazzi shield and its 360 degree rotation. The paparazzi shield offers protection from UV rays and inquisitive eyes. You would typically think bringing a stroller into a restaurant would be a pain in the ass, but thanks to this stroller's 360 degree rotation I am able to rotate the seat, so that he is actually sitting at the table with us. It's amazing how many looks I get when out for meals. This stroller is also able to expand with your family transforming from a single stroller to a double.  

two / I much prefer the structure of the Baby Bjorn Miracle Carrier over the softness of a wrap carrier. I like knowing my little guy is secure and comfortable, while my back is completely supported. This carrier is a must when living in the city. 

three / I am a huge fan of the Dr. Brown's Natural Flow Bottles. Dr. Brown's has the reputation of being the bottle on the market for relieving colic. The glass and BPA-free bottles have a venting system that keeps air out of the milk. This Dr. Brown's Newborn BPA-Free Feeding Gift Set, in particular, is a great starter kit for the beginning months. This set includes: 2 Storage/Travel Caps, Three 8-oz. Bottles, 3 8-oz. Bottles, 3 Steel Cleaning Brushes, 5 Level 1 Silicone Nipples, 2 Level 2 Silicone Nipples, 2 4-oz. Bottles.

four / We love our Summer Infant 3.5" Baby Touch Boost Digital Color Video Monitor. It's extremely easy to set up and use. I love that we are able to control the camera's rotation & zoom straight from the monitor. Another plus, it has a built in thermostat and shows you the baby's room temperature right on the monitor.  

five / My little guy loves his hands. He loves his hands so much that he can't bare to be without them even when he sleeps. I've tried almost every swaddle on the market, including the Summer Infant Swaddleme and Halo Sleep Sack, and some how my little Houdini would break free with ease. Enter the Miracle Blanket Swaddler! I swear by this product. He's been sleeping through the night since we got it. His arms are strapped down using his own body weight. I know it sounds cruel, but he absolutely loves it. Here is a video showing how it works. 

six / My friend Sarah, owner of Social Dress Shop, bought my little guy a Sleep Sheep when he was born. Little did I know this Sleep Sheep would be my saving grace when putting him to bed. Not only is it cute and cuddly, but it has a sound box that plays soothing sounds and lullabies. I honestly don't know what I would do without it.

seven / This book is my bible! I started reading Twelve Hours' Sleep by Twelve Weeks Old towards the end of my pregnancy and then again after my baby was born. It's extremely insightful and very easy to follow. Thanks to this book I had him sleeping from 11pm - 7:30am by 6 weeks old. He is now just shy of 12 weeks and we are well on our way to 12 hours. I highly recommend this book to any new mom. 

eight / We were given this Soothie Pacifier in the hospital and Robert has been sucking on it ever since. It's the perfect introductory pacifier. This pacifier is BPA free and has a safe, one-piece design that adheres to the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines for newborns.

nine / I love Burt's Bees Baby Bee products. This Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Fragrance Free Shampoo and Wash, in particular, is my favorite! It's 99.9% natural and tear-free. It has a blend of aloe, oat flour and soy protein to keep your baby clean and smooth from head to tiny toe. It's pediatrician-tested and hypoallergenic with no sulfates, phthalates, parabens or other synthetic ingredients you don’t want on your baby. 

ten / The Brica ComforTemp Infant Bather is perfect for apartment living. It fits perfectly on our kitchen counter, positioned at the edge of the sink. It keeps our little guy nice and warm with direct water contact from its warm water reservoir. It's non-slip and very easy to clean.  

eleven / Who doesn't love a rubber ducky in their bath? Not only is this Munchkin Safety Bath Ducky cute, but it makes sure your bathwater is at the perfect temperature! It has White Hot® technology that tells you when the water is too hot. Genius! 

twelve / These Burt's Bees Baby Bee Face & Hand Wipes are another one of my favorite Burt's Bees Baby Bee products. These 99.1% natural cloth wipes are fragrance free and hypoallergenic. I take them with me everywhere. 

thirteen / If I had to pick one favorite newborn essential it would be the 'NoseFrida®' Nasal Aspirator, hands down! I am addicted. I never thought sucking boogers out of my kid's nose could be so much fun. The funny thing is, he loves it too! While it may not be for everyone, it sure works better than the traditional blue bulb aspirators. My husband thinks I should do an entire post dedicated to this one product alone, that's how much I love it. Have you tried it?

fourteen / I don't think there is one kid that does not own Sophie the Giraffe! She's quite cute and a perfect first toy for your little one. It's the only 100% natural rubber teething toy in the world. It helps stimulate your baby's senses through hearing, touch, smell and taste. I heart her!

fifteen / My little guy loves his Fisher Price Rainforest Gym. He can lay in there for up to an hour at a time staring at the lights and listening to the music with his animal friends. It is so fun to see him engage with all of the hanging toys. This is a great tool for tummy time, as well. When I need to get things done, I typically stick him in here. It's a godsend. 

sixteen / After trying the mamarRoo, with little success, we bought this Taggies Soft 'n Snug Bouncer. He loves how soft and cozy it is. I will usually put him in here when I have things to do around the apartment.  It's very lightweight, so I am able to move it from room to room with ease. It plays music, as well as vibrates. 

seventeen / Every new mom needs a chic diaper bag when strolling their little munchkin around the city. If you are anything like me and dislike the look of a traditional diaper bag, then this super chic Henri Bendel West 57th Baby Bag is for you! At first glance, you would never know this was a diaper bag. It's made with pure Saffiano leather and loaded with tons of specialized pockets and compartments (front zipper pocket, two bottle compartment, two open pockets, four additional inner pockets) and of course, a changing pad. It also comes equipped with a removable and adjustable crossbody strap. It's a fantastic bag! I have it in black.
