While newborn “essentials” tend to vary from parent to parent, most mamas discover the products that work for them early on. We chatted with new mama to Delilah, (and Hatched Baby’s word guru) Staci about the products, clothes, and grooming supplies she can’t live without.
Read on for Staci’s newborn essentials.
Aden + Anais Swaddles
These were lifesavers in our house after our little one was born. Swaddling was hard enough, but so many swaddles came apart after a few seconds once we bundled our babe up. These not only stayed intact, but they also got softer with every wash.
This pacifier kept our little one asleep for hours on end. The attached stuffed animal made it easy to find, and also kept it in her mouth longer.
Our daughter started scratching at her little face from day one, and these totally saved us. Besides being super-cute and super-soft, they’re also breathable.
Zoe Organics Bath Wash
I’m super particular about the products I use on my little girl. This body wash (and everything else from the line!) is made with pure, organic oils and smells natural and refreshing. It delivers the perfect amount of suds, too.
Zoe Organics Everything Balm
Everyone in our household uses this balm! Moisturizing, healing, and protecting, it keeps skin soft, and even works on diaper rash. Obsessed.
Cleobella Diaper Bag
The most stylish diaper bags in the game. I’ve been known to use mine for travel, too.
Kickee Pants ANYTHING
Soft to the touch, Kickee Pants onesies offer up just the right amount of warmth (which is important since LA is super hot right now). My little one lives in pieces from this line – so comfortable.
Extra Large Blankets
My husband and I started taking our little girl to the park just a few days after she was born. We love snuggling up and staring at the trees.
We started using this the day we came home from the hospital. It instantly put our little one to sleep because it sways side to side like parents do. I recommend using it early on so your mini gets used to it.
