Clothing

American Apparel Infant Baby Rib Hat

Keeping a hat on a newborn is like trying to keep a bowtie on a chimpanzee. Our best hats came from the hospital (so grab as many as you can.) When baby is 3+ months, try these options.

Organic Footie Pajamas
5-7 onesie pajamas

Since babies spend their first 3 months either napping, waking up from a nap, or being rocked back down, you'll want lots of PJs. Get a mix of types for different occasions.

SmartBottoms cloth diapers
24 cloth diapers

After much trial and error, we now use a mix of SmartBottoms, AppleCheeks, and bumGenius diapers. We purchased 24, which was the perfect number since we do wash every 3 days. (Any longer and you risk moldy diapers.)

Thinkbaby Trainer Cup, Orange, 9 Ounce
2 sippy cups

Hard to believe, but by 6 months you’ll give baby a sippy cup. Granted, most of it ends up on their shirt, but it’s good practice.

Arm’s Reach Mini Co-Sleeper Bassinet - Natural
Mini co-sleeper, bassinet, or pack n play

My vote is the mini co-sleeper as it lasts longer than a bassinet but isn’t too big. My son used his up to 5 months. Pack n play makes a good travel crib.

These are the highest rated sleep sacks on Amazon for good reason. Made of natural merino wool, these sleep sacks are 100% non-toxic, breathable, and durable. Don’t let the price intimidate you, since baby will literally wear every day of life from 3 mos. to 2 years old!

Kiss My Face olive oil soap
Baby soap and shampoo

Babies need less soap than you'd think, and same goes for shampoo.Honestly, I just use our regular old Kiss My Face olive oil soap. Avoid soaping baby from head to toe, as this can dry out skin and wash away good bacteria.

P.S. Wondering where to register for your baby shower?

This is the big question. Do you register for your baby at Target? Walmart? Local boutiques?

I'm kind of an Amazon junkie. (Once you experience traditional store visits with a toddler, you'll see why :) ) And Amazon has a great baby registry service. They even let you add products from other websites. You can check out Amazon's baby registry right here.

The best reason to register with Amazon is that most people already have an account, which makes it easy on your friends and family.

And no matter where you register, I wish you a fantastic pregnancy, a really fun baby shower, and a smooth, natural, healthy delivery!
