The amount of baby products on the market has grown to impossibly high numbers. You can find just about anything out there. In my experience I’ve come across a couple things that aren’t widely advertised, but I now recommend to EVERYONE! Whether it’s your baby or you are attending a shower and need the perfect gift, these things have got you covered!
The Perfect Bottle Warmer (Bonus! It’s totally budget friendly!!)
I searched for quite some time and even tried two other warmers before coming across this one, and let me tell you it has been the most amazing little gadget! I had been warming bottles in hot water..yes that’s “free”…no it doesn’t get ready fast enough! I was waiting way too long and baby would get upset because he was hungry. The First Years Bottle Warmer is ONLY $15!! It has warmed bottles in around 3 minutes every time and is easy to clean and transport. I definitely put this under the “must have” category!

Mesh Crib Bumpers
The risk of SIDS is something that scares every parent and keeps us awake at night wondering if our baby is ok. Although this is a very real and legitimate concern I was faced with an added problem of a baby who moved all over his crib at a young age. This caused him to painfully get his leg stuck and the screams were so intense because of the pain that I had to do something. Research led me to these mesh crib bumpers and man was I thankful! They are really affordable and allowed me to rest easy again knowing my baby would not hurt himself. When installed correctly the hazardous risk of the baby suffocating is almost entirely eliminated. I say almost because, like all other things, anything is possible. From my experience I can honestly say, even when my baby’s face was up against the bumpers he was breathing very easily. I cannot explain in words how worth it these things were, truly mind easing. It is recommended that these are removed once baby can sit on their own and pull on them.

Comfortable Clothes for Baby
There is absolutely no denying baby clothes are adorable! I love looking at the cute clothes just as much as the next person…BUT…after having a baby of my own I can honestly say from birth to crawling age, it is so much easier on everyone to put them in comfortable onesies. Between the frequent diaper changes, baby vomit and spit up (often leading to a change in outfit), and the fast growing baby it is a no-brainer to put them in clothes that make all of that easier. I am definitely not against dressing them up from time to time, but until my baby started crawling I could tell that he liked being in onesies, and if I’m being honest, I would wear these things if I could! The reason I say until baby is crawling is that the legs on the onesies get caught on the floor when baby is army crawling and they end up stretching. Now that you’ve heard my rant on how great these are I’d like to give you the best news!! The ones that I have found to fit the best and come in cotton and fleece are found at Walmart for UNDER $5! I think I have at least 6 in every size… #Ad
Electric Nail File
Yes, you read that correctly. Who would have known that such a glorious, inexpensive thing could save so many headaches? My husband and I both tried to clip or file our babies nails with a conventional set of clippers (meant for babies of course). Adfter my third attempt and giving my baby a nice cut on his poor innocent little finger I started looking into solutions. In my defense, my baby would not sit even remotely still for these events, but none the less I couldn’t let his nails get out of control. When I stumbled upon the electric nail file my first thought was “Wow, the person who invented this is a genius!” My second thought was “Put it in your cart now and get it here as soon as possible!” I did just that and couldn’t be happier! My little one still doesn’t sit still, but now I can’t hurt him when he’s wiggling around. What an amazing MUST HAVE tool! Commission Link <http://amzn.to/2Cuc7AY>
Night Time Diapers
Once your baby is sleeping through the night..which they should be after reading our post on that subject here…they are going to be having much heavier diapers because of it. This will quickly become a non-issue if you purchase night time specific diapers. Another tip is to size up one because that will give extra coverage and soak up more without leaking! I have been using these for 3 months with absolutely no leaks after 12 hours of sleep! Amazing right? And you may be thinking that the price is higher than regular diapers, but I can reassure you that it’s worth it because you only use one per day…for example, one box of 92 diapers is going to last 92 days! My favorite are Huggies because they seem to have the most comfortable fit, best reviews, and reasonable price. Commission Link <http://amzn.to/2oF2dmX>
