Here they are below in no particular order at all:
It's beautiful like grass on your countertop. This bottle, pump part, whatever baby thing you just cleaned holder has been with us for years. We love how it's narrow to fit near the countertop. The accessories are super cute as well. Buy on Amazon
We've used this for EVERY cub. They reduce gas, are easy to clean, and most importantly were great for transitioning between breast and bottle. Buy on Amazon
We have 3 of these and they have been great baby monitors for all 3 cubs. We take them with us whenever we travel as well. Super convenient since it includes an app and really easy to setup. Buy on Amazon
The only cup we've ever used to start them on water. The weighted straw let's them hold it in absolutely any direction (even upside down) and it still works! Buy on Amazon
We LOVE LOVE LOVE our Bugaboo stroller. You can find our full write-up on it here. We've had the same one for over 7yrs and is currently being used by cub #3. It's wonderful for those looking for a touch city stroller that can get through all of the seasons and carry all of the family items on the way to the park, birthday party, wherever. Buy on Amazon
If you're going to get the Bugaboo stroller, then you must get the footmuff for it as well or as we call it the "blankie". It's machine-washable, you can even pop it into the dryer, and it's extra cozy for those winter days. Ours has lasted over 7yrs. Buy on Amazon
The queen of all pumps! It's portable (requires no cord) and is great for on the go. It has also has an amazing suction. I received one from my insurance and bought an extra one (using FSA or HSA) to have. Buy on Amazon
You cannot go wrong with this one. Endless hours of play for years. You can learn colors, counting, work on grip strength and so much more. Ours lasted 7+ years. Buy on Amazon
Soothing sounds and great ways to engage with classical music at an early age. Also helps with grip strength and learning colors. Buy on Amazon
10. Shape Sorter
This is the newest addition to our toy collection. Cub #3 loves to work on fine motor skills, pull out the shapes and also learn about colors. Keeps them very busy. Buy from Amazon
So soft and breathable. We've used this for all 3 cubs and love the that it's easy for diaper changes since it unzips from the bottom. They stay super warm and cozy at night.
12. Wipes Holder
We've had the same one for over 7yrs. It does it's job, keeps the wipes moist and is easy to open and close. Buy on Amazon
Another one that we've had for over 7yrs. It helps with transitioning from sitting to kneeling to standing and eventually walking. All our cubs loved it and learned from it. Buy on Amazon
14. Coziest blankie
As the title says, this is the coziest blanket ever. All 3 of our cubs came home in one of their own of these. Buy on Amazon
15. Waterproof bags
These will take you from newborn to adulthood. Used for everything from dirty clothes, the beach, swimming lessons, playground. So convenient! Buy on Amazon
16. Wipes holder
Trust us - you can't just have enough wipes holder. You need one in the diaper bag, the car, the stroller, the other bag. You will constantly be reaching for these. Buy on Amazon
17. A busy book
It really does keep them busy and even the older cubs as well. Love this early learning developmental activity book with lots to pull, tug, press, and explore. Buy on Amazon
We've used this for all 3 cubs and had the first generation version of it when it first came out back in 2015. What a super convenient and easy to use car seat that converts into a stroller and vice versa. This is a must have for the city and 'burbs as well! Buy on Amazon
We used to use the manual one which was also great but this electric snot suction is a game changer. It has a newborn attachment as well as one for older cubs as well. The light is a nice little distraction for them too. Buy on Amazon
20. Bath Kneeler
Your knees will thank you when giving them a bath. We've used the same one for over 7 years. Love how there's a little loop to hook it behind the bathroom door. Buy on Amazon
These bibs are the ultimate food catchers. They are also super easy to clean and have lasted years for us. Buy on Amazon
22. Straw cup
Transitioning from bottle to a straw cup is what this cup allowed us to do with all three cubs. It also keeps liquids cold (like milk!). Buy on Amazon
