HOW TO READ THE LIST

My dear friend Kate is about to pop with baby number Dos. Kate is a bit of a researcher herself. Below is a list of items of what she found to be her essentials when having a baby.

Kate broke down this list by category and within each she mentions the “GOOD”, the “BAD”, and the “MEH”. I also wanted to include some MommaFinds commentary.

Note, this list is extensive. It’s all about #findingyourhappymedium and trusting your judgement on what you think you need.

Happy shopping!


BREAST FEEDING

THE GOOD

THE BAD

I got a Dr. Browns bottle warmer and after about 5 uses it had horrible mold in it, like super gross. And it’s impossible to clean. So don’t even bother. Honestly, I think just putting milk in a glass of really hot water for a bit gets you 90% of the way there. I ended up splurging and got this one - totally worth it in the end. At MommaFinds, I also ended up with a similar bottle warmer, which I really liked because it warmed homemade baby puree as well.

FIND YOUR HAPPY Medium

This list is extensive, but I wish I had it before I had the twins! So many great products and tips and tricks. Remember, this is one person’s experience. Be sure to do your own research and to look outside of Amazon. There are some great products out there not sold on Amazon.

Just today a colleague recommended to another colleague these for belly support. Wish I had these when pregnant!
