Baby Registry Must Haves

Hey hey sweetie pies! There is so much to plan in terms of prepping for the arrival of a little one. From clothes to feeding essentials to bedding it can become overwhelming really quickly. (I know it did for me) We recently had our first baby shower and it was so much fun! David and I really appreciated all of the gifts that we have received so far. I have worked really hard putting together multiple registries for all those who want to spoil our little Beanie baby.

With all of the things that our little baby girl will need, they are a few items that David and I consider dire essentials – especially upon her arrival. Plus I reached out to you all on Insta to get your suggestions for essentials. I compiled a list based on the responses. I figured that I would put together a list of baby must haves for newborns.

David and I knew that we wanted a car seat that could grow with Beanie so that we wouldn’t have to purchase multiple seats. We were very pleased to find out that this convertible car seat will eventually transition to a booster seat. We also appreciated the protective padding along the sides and around the head as well as the two cup holders. Also the cushion can be removed for washing for any messes. This style is available in multiple colors such as blue, teal and pink.

Graco Modes 3 Lite DLX Stroller –

Why no one told me how expensive strollers are?! I almost fainted looking at the prices of strollers. I remember David and I setting up our registry at BuyBuy Baby and we met this couple. I honestly can’t remember how the conversation started. (pregnancy brain) However I remember complimenting her stroller because I thought it looked so nice. She highly recommended it and informed us that she got it from there. Well once we were in the stroller dept we were quickly overwhelmed by all of the options and the prices! We saw one stroller as high as $1000! The employee was super nice and informative! She helped us narrow down the options (because it was super overwhelming – the options were endless!)

We decided on this travel system by Graco which came highly recommended. What we liked the most about this stroller, aside from the price, is the convenience. This particular stroller offers your little one 9 ways to ride. Your little one can ride either facing or away from you with carseat as well as a reclining bassinet. Stroller also includes rubber wheels instead of plastic for more durability. This stroller is ideal to grow and evolve with your little one which was an essential for us.

When it comes to diaper bags, I knew I wanted something cute but also allowed me to be hands-free. I love this one because it is super affordable and waterproof! It is highly reviewed online because of the various pockets to hold all of your things and your little one’s. Did I mention it comes in multiple colors?

Your little one’s will be touching their faces a lot, which means they may end up scratching their faces. These mittens are super cute and easy to slip on your little one’s hands to avoiding scratching and irritating the skin.

Swaddle Blankets –

A lot of you mentioned swaddle blankets because of the benefits. It can help soothe a cranky baby as well as help your little one sleep at night. If you are unsure how to use a swaddle blanket, there are tutorials on Youtube.

A few more essentials for your newborn… (I didn’t link specific ones because this is based solely on preference.)
