Hey everyone!!!! If you’ve been keeping up, then you know that my boyfriend and I are FTP’s (First Time Parents) and as you know the struggle has gotten real when it comes to parenting. At first, our baby was so quiet and barely moved now we have to make her take a nap because she’s so on the GO!!! Mind you, she’s only a few days shy of being 7 months old! I can’t believe it, but I digress.
I’m bringing you our perspectives as first timers what our most essential items are for our baby girl. Of course my boyfriend’s answer was short and to the point saying for him the most essential thing to him is having her pacifier. Wait, what?! That’s it?! A pacifier. Yeah, okay gotcha buddy.
Me, on the other hand, I have about three essential items and they include:
- Diaper bag (which consists of basically everything)
- Easy feed on-the-go spoon
Since having her and becoming used to being a mom I have downgraded our diaper bag to a very inexpensive $4 (caught on sale) bag that fits everything we need without us being weighed down. Now on to my favorite item…
This thing right here…..I’m so glad Munchkin invented this! It’s heaven sent seriously!
She loves it! I love it! We all love it! It’s no mess and it’s especially great when your baby doesn’t like to wait for you to dip the spoon in the bowl and bring it to their mouth. Only $6 at Walmart, go get it now!
The last thing that I’ve been carrying around since before she was born is Vaseline. I use it for EVERYTHING. It’s my go to for everything, and I use organic coconut oil but mainly on her hair, but this does great for our baby’s eczema prone skin. Especially during the winter time. It’s hypoallergenic and has a very light baby scent so baby can still have that baby fresh smell without all of the parabens, etc. that are used in other brands. $5-$6 at any drugstore, Walmart, and Target. It’s old school and always does the trick.
