Today is Amazon Prime Day! In honor of that we at Momfaming decided to come up with some of our must-have products. These range from breastfeeding items to toys, from organizers to wine. We have listed it all.This isn’t everything, but it’s a few of our essentials. Let us know what you can’t live without in the comments!
Erin’s Recommendations – Erin has a nine month old boy.
Fisher Price Sit-Me-Up Floor Seat
I absolutely love this seat! It has a few toys attached to it that Ryan likes to play with so it keeps him happy and contained for a bit while I get stuff done. We also take it when we go to someone else’s house so that we don’t have to hold him the whole time. Once he started eating we have used it to feed him in if we didn’t have access to a high chair, too!
Baby Einstein Take Along Tunes Musical Toy
This is our go-to toy when we are out at dinner. It has lights and makes noise so if Ryan is getting fussy it is the perfect toy to distract him!
Baby Briefcase – Baby Paperwork Organizer
I am still a teacher at heart so I love anything that helps me stay organized. This is the perfect place to keep all of the important documents like your baby’s birth certificate, vaccination records, and information from the pediatrician. My husband can even find what he needs in this!
Infantino Sash Wrap and Tie Baby Carrier
This was another must-have when going to friends’ houses or out to dinner. Before Ryan was big enough to sit with us to eat, I used to wear him in this at the table. It was super easy to use and very comfortable to sit in (for me and him!)
Medela Easy Expression Hands Free Pumping Bra
If you’re pumping at all during the day you need this bra! It lets you pump both sides at once while having your hands free to do whatever you need to do (entertain the baby, feed the baby, or read the latest blog at momfaming.com!)
Lisa’s Recommendations – Lisa has a two year old boy.
KidCo – GoPod Portable Baby Activity Station
I used this all the time when Ben was a baby. It was an easy way for us to get outside. We took it to parks, vacations, even in the backyard. This was a great invention for moms that want to be outside and not have the babies lay on the ground. 100% recommend!
We just used this on our last vacation and are SO happy with it. This is a perfect alternative to the pack and play or a regular bed. It’s comfortable and does not take up a ton of space. Highly recommend to anyone looking for an easy/low maintenance option to take on vacation or anywhere!
Breastfeeding Cover and Wipes
Two of the most used items for me when breastfeeding were my cover (because I breastfed in public a lot) and cleaning wipes (because I didn’t want to clean my stuff in the office kitchen).
Yes. I am that mother. We have counted on my old iPad more times than I can count. We have used it on long road trips and when we’ve needed ten more minutes in a restaurant. I am not ashamed!
Any sort of outdoor toy
I didn’t realize the importance of outdoor toys until I had a toddler. Staying indoors all day is not doable. We need an outlet. We’ve used everything from paint chalk, swings, outdoor climber, etc. Stock up! You will need it!
Both of our Recommendations!
Baby Merlin’s Magic SleepSuit
This thing is a LIFE-SAVER! We both used it once our boys were too old to be swaddled but still had the startle reflex. It helps them feel cozy and prevents them from waking themselves up so that they’ll (hopefully) sleep longer and make you feel more like a human in the morning!
Swing and/or MamaRoo (something with movement)
These are so necessary for a newborn. It gives you a place to put the baby down if you have to run to the bathroom and it also helps to soothe the baby with movement and noise. We both used these for as long as our babies would fit in them!
We’re honestly not sure how people live without this! You can buy anything you need for yourself or your babe and it comes to your door in 2 days! It is especially helpful in the 8 weeks after having the baby when you’re not supposed to take them out but you need to shop for essentials (think diapers, wipes, and breast pads!)
Another must-have for both of us! It can be used right when the baby is born and for so many different things. Lisa had Ben nap in it on the couch next to her and also used it to help for photos. Erin used it as a nursing pillow and to prop Ryan up next to her while she was pumping. No matter what you plan to use it for, you definitely should get it!
Give us ALL the WINE! Rose is a favorite of both of ours, it’s perfect for the summer!
