Happy Friday ladies! It’s crunch time over here trying to get everything organized before our little one arrives! It was such a trip pulling out all the baby equipment to wash and clean earlier this week! How is it that its only been a couple years since the “baby stages” but I feel like I have forgotten so much already?! I swear the to do list is never ending but it felt good hitting up Nordstrom this week to check off some the items on our to get list! Today i’m sharing our must have baby products (that we loved with Ava) and are restocking up on this time around as well!
Here are some of my products we can’t do without….
We always stock up on swaddle blankets and Aden & Anais are our favorite (now lets just hope we remember how to swaddle ;)! They also make crib sheets, hooded towels and wash clothes which are also staples in our house. As for a double stroller we knew we didnt want one that was side by side (kudos to you moms who can maneuver those things!I took out everything when I tried out my sister in laws the other day 😉 We ended up ordering the Baby Jogger City Select! You guys who have been following for awhile know we had the Uppa Baby Vista with Ava (and loved it) but unfortunately with the 2012 model the only second seat adapter option is one that faces inward and looks at the back of a another seat. If any of you have toddlers you probably know it is hard enough to get them to stay in a stroller let alone when they have to face inward looking at the back of another seat. The 2015 Uppa Baby has an outward facing option but I would have to buy the 2015 version. Once I compared the Uppa Baby Vista 2015 and Baby Jogger City Select I found them to be extremely similar but the Baby Jogger was a few hundred dollar cheaper. So we placed our order and can’t wait the Baby Jogger to come in. (ps thank you to the moms who recommended it on another post I did!!) I’ll do a follow up post on the stroller once we have received it and tested it out for awhile. I also included the Uppa Baby G Luxe and G Lite stroller as a great travel option/ lightweight stroller. We have definitely got our moneys worth out of it over the years! Now to look for a double umbrella stroller!
You ladies who have been following for awhile also know we loved our Marc Jacobs diaper bag! I’ve pulled that bad boy out again and plan on using for this pregnancy too! We have used it SO much and it’s still in great condition! I HIGHLY recommend this diaper bag and have zero complaints about it. I love that its all black and the hubby has no problems carrying it around as well. If your men aren’t a fan of the diaper bag look i’ve included a “diaper dude”cross the body bag option for a more sporty on the go dad 😉 For teethers (yikes having to enter that never ending territory again!) we love the Zoli sticks and of course the Sophie giraffes. The Wubba Nub pacifiers worked the best with Ava because they’re attached to a little animal for the baby to hold on to. Lastly the Doctor Browns gift set is a great gift for a friend or for yourself. We used those bottles, drying rack and bottle warmer so much when Ava was a baby!
