I’ve admitted to my sister-in-law, whose baby girl, Madeline, is just 2 days older than Ben, that I copied her baby registry. I’m talking pretty close to item for item. But, in my defense, she has great taste, I knew she had done her research and I trust her opinions on such things. It was pretty much the CliffsNotes version of baby registry. This was helpful considering the first time Mike and I set foot into Babies-R-Us it quickly became clear that we 1. had underestimated the amount of stuff babies “need” and 2. needed a bigger place.
It’s pretty crazy just how many things it takes to successfully get us through the day. And, to be honest, this list is just the tip of the iceberg. So, I really tried to narrow it down to our tried and true favorites—“Ben’s best of.”
Just a few notes: #9 makes on-the-go formula feedings much more clean and efficient, #14 a backpack diaper bag is a must for me—being hands-free is so important, #19 these PJs were a gift from one of my besties—they are the softest, coziest PJs Ben has, #22 speaking of soft, this bamboo swaddle is our go-to for bedtime, #25 Ben sleeps in it every night and it plays music that even makes me sleepy (as if I needed any help).
