Oral B Stage 1 Toothbrush
A toothbrush is something I wish I’d started using with my daughter a little earlier. She didn’t have teeth for the longest time, so I didn’t really think about it, and now it’s been a bit of a struggle to get her to let me brush. Having one on hand at the beginning would’ve been great, at least just to get her used to it.

HUGGIES Natural Care Unscented Baby Wipes
These are the wipes I buy for my daughter and they really are fantastic. I like that they have no alcohol or fragrances and are super gentle. I buy these in the jumbo boxes of eight and I’m always surprised how quickly I run out. Wipes can be used for EVERYTHING. They’re as practical as gifts get and will be much appreciated during those messy, late-night diaper changes.

Baby ECOS Disney Stain and Odor Remover
In case you didn’t know: babies are messy. Like…SUUUUUPER messy. This stain and odor remover is natural and can be used on carpets, floors, fabric, etc. Trust me…you’ll need this.

Baby ECOS Disney Free and Clean Laundry Detergent
We use this detergent and love it. I bought it when Fern was a newborn and had super delicate skin and always had the intent to go back to my usual brand when she got a little older, but I loved it so much it stuck. Oh, and did I mention that not only are babies messy, but those messes also require innumerable amounts of laundry? Laundry detergent will be your indispensable sidekick.
Purchase for $10.99 from Diapers.com
I’m not quite as picky about the daytime diapers that I use for my little one, but when it comes to nighttime, I swear by Huggies Overnites. These were seriously a miracle worker and a key contributor to my husband and I getting more sleep during the night. My daughter was leaking out of her diaper EVERY night and waking up crying until I tried these. A dry baby is a happy baby.

Disney Cuddly Bodysuit 3-Pack
You can never have too many classic white one-pieces in your baby’s closet, and they’re particularly great if you’re waiting to find out the gender of your baby, since white works for all. These are our favorites because of the grow-an-inch snaps. My tall (95th percentile) 20-month-old can still wear her 9-month bodysuits!

Minnie Mouse Ignite Stroller from The First Years
Even if you already registered for a larger stroller, like a jogger, that you plan to just use as your all-purpose stroller, you should think again. I bought a jogging stroller, but found that when I was out and about by myself it was way too bulky and cumbersome. Enter a lightweight, easily folded stroller and life got infinitely better, not to mention I gained a whole lot more space in my trunk!

Graco Minnie Mouse Cuddle Cove Play Yard
Play yards are the best invention ever. They’re great for traveling or for everyday use. We actually never even had a crib and used a floor bed in addition to our play yard, and it’s been great! A great option for having your baby room in with you as well.
