Life can get a little crazy during the first couple of months into motherhood. A trip to the store seems nearly impossible when it’s just you and your little baby. Whenever I needed something for my baby I skipped the lines and ordered online. With that being said, Amazon Prime became my best friend! There are so many amazing baby essentials to choose from on Amazon, however, picking the best products can be a little time consuming. I thought it would be a great idea to save you some time! So, here are a couple of Amazon baby essentials that will make your life 10 times easier.
Keeping your baby close is so important during the the first few months! However, Co-sleeping can be so scary if you don’t have an infant sleeper. I used the Summer Infant Co-Sleeper for the first few months of Julius’s life. Let me tell you mamas, it was such a life saver! (Literally) I love that this infant sleeper has an outer thick metal rim. It definitely keeps you out of your baby’s space and keeps your baby safe. Affordability is another reason why I fell in love with the infant sleeper! It is so inexpensive and in my opinion the best in the market.
If I ever find the genius who invented teething mittens I will be more than happy to buy them a cup of coffee! I mean, what a great idea right?! No matter what you do or say, babies will always prefer their hands instead of a teether. I have found that teething mittens are the big solution for this problem. My husband found this adorable teething mittens and Julius loves it! This teething mitten is both affordable and adorable!
It is insane how quickly a baby’s nails grow! As a new mom, I would always forget that and I would tend to skip trimming my baby’s nails. Therefore, Julius would scratch himself all time! Trimming his nails was always so time consuming because I would find myself using my own fingers to trim his nails. We finally invested in a baby nail clipper and it has honestly been one of the best investments yet! Personally, I love this baby clipper because it is so gentle on tiny fingers and it is also the perfect size!
During the first couple of weeks of Julius going on solids we decided to go ahead and invest in a good plastic bowl set. We love the Munchkin Bowl Set because they aren’t any regular ol’ bowls, they are suction bowls!Julius is loving grabbing his food lately. Forget the spoons, he uses his whole hands and oh boy does it get messy! Fortunately, these suction bowls still make the clean ups way much easier!
I’ve always hated the roughness of baby towels because they don’t look or feel as comfortable as they should. My husband Julio wanted a new towel for Julius because the ones we were gifted were very rough for Julius’s skin. Of-course, Julio is a big Amazon addict and he always tries to find the best products with the right price tags. Honestly, I was so surprised on his selection. The bamboo baby towel is functional, cute and very very soft! Way to go Julio!
I hope these items make life as a new mom a little easier! Please feel free to leave any of your own Amazon recommendations in the comments below!
