Hi Loves! Happy Friday. I am so happy that the weekend is here, I live for Fridays. Especially this Friday because tonight is GIRLS NIGHT. I love to carve out time to hang out with my fellow mamma friends. Its definitely something I have found to help me navigate motherhood and gives me a quick moment to breathe and just enjoy their company. I encourage you all to do this as well as I have found that I am happier and a more well rounded mother when I take some time away for myself. I have so many friends having babies right now. Something is in the water and they are popping out like hotcakes. I have had several new mamma friends reach out to me for help with their baby registries so I thought it would be helpful to share the Top 10 Baby Items I Could Not Live Without.

Dockatot: I could not live without this thing. We used it all the time. We would just throw it on the couch for his naps and he would be out. For nights we would put it in the bassinet that we had and it was a perfect fit. This co sleeper is basically a dog bed for babies. You can take it with you wherever you go and your babe will be in their own bed at all times. There was no crib transition, once we decided to put Beckett in his own room we just put that thing right into the crib and your done. It is also great for travel because you can just lay it between you and your hubby in bed. We loved this thing and It made sleeping so much easier.
Solly Baby Wrap: I loved this wrap. I especially loved their trendy modern colors. I am a sucker for a good stripe print and they had just the perfect one in a pretty grey stripe that I loved. Its so simple to just throw on and the fabric is the softest thing ever. This was so helpful if I could not get Beckett to go to sleep and needed to get some hands free stuff done around the house. Also great for easy leisurely walks.
Rock n Play: This was great for Beckett when he was diagnosed with severe reflux. They wanted him to sleep at an incline so we used this once that happened. He loved the slight vibrations and it was also great when we were on the go.
White Noise Machine: We love our white noise machine and Beckett still uses it every single night. It really helps drown out any noise and it is also a great bedtime cue for Beckett. Once I turn it on he knows what time it is
Spectra Breast Pump: I love this breast pump. The best part about is it is wireless. Its so great for the on the go mom. You can use all medella breastfeeding accessories with it as well which is nice because they have a lot more flange sizes.
Boppy Pillow: This pillow comes in handy for so many things. You can use while breastfeeding for support, you can use it as the baby gets older to help him sit up, or lay back in it as a lounger. Etsy carries so many cute covers for them to fit your style.
Boon Drying Rack: We still use this drying rack everyday. Its so easy to clean and is also dishwasher safe. It is great for bottles and all your smaller food storage items. I love the modern look of it so it doesn’t look so bad sitting on your countertop.
Babyletto Crib: Babyletto has the cutest modern crib styles at reasonable prices. It was so hard to pick the perfect one because I liked them all. Most of them turn into a toddler bed as well which is nice as an option when they get bigger.
