From diapers to bottles, car seats to strollers, and baby wipes to rattles -- babies need a lot of things. Some things are entirely necessary while others are not. How does one know what to buy with all the options out there?
I decided to consult the go-to store for online shopping, Amazon, to see what they suggested to purchase for a newborn baby*. After consulting through lists of items, the following items came out on top:
Portable Changing Pad
Here are some runner ups:
Wrap Swaddle Blanket
Diaper Caddy Organizer
Infant to Toddler Rocker
Reversible Napper and Changer Playpen
Handprint & Footprint Photo Frame Kit
What do you think? Is it essential to have a portable changing pad? How about a wrap swaddle blanket? I don’t think there’s an answer to that, it all depends on the type of mother you are. At the end of the day, we’re all trying our best to raise our little ones into happy, healthy babies. So, who’s to say any of these items are good, bad, needed, or useless?
Author's note: I admit that the list of items above may not be completely accurate. I found them after a quick Google search and thought it would be fun to compile the list.
*The lists used to write this blog are created based on top selected products and reviews, so Amazon isn’t responsible for making the lists – shoppers of Amazon newborn and baby products are. That being said, we tend to buy items that are purchased most often and have the best reviews, so there may be some validity to them.
