When you have a new baby, there's a lot you'll need.
Rachel Hoeing from Triad Moms joined FOX8 Thursday for Mommy Matters to share the top 10 must have items for babies.
1. Fisher Price Rock and Play Sleeper
Hands down, the most recommended product from our readers. Many said they could not have survived without it!
2. Fussy Baby Solutions
Vulli Sophie the Giraffe Teether
Mylicon Gas Drops
NoseFrida the Snot Sucker
3. Swaddlers and Sleep Sacks
Ergo Baby Swaddler
Aden + Anais Muslin Swaddle Blankets
4. Nursing Pillows
My Brest Friend
5. Wraps and Carriers
Boba Carriers and Wraps
6. Baby Video Monitor
There were not any specific name brands that our readers suggested, but here is a great list with reviews that I found online.
One for the wipes and one for the bottles.
In addition to the swaddlers and blanket sleepers above, our readers suggested getting lots of receiving blankets. These can be used for just about anything and you will probably end up with more than 10 of them stashed all around the house.
9. Dr. Brown's Baby Bottles
The up side is that many claim these bottles help soothe colicky babies. The down side is that there are many different parts to wash.
10. A Support Group
Our reader, Jess, summed this up best by saying "... but more importantly a support system of mamas and papas with similar aged children who GET what you are going through, who allow you to be crazy for a moment and then help get you back on track." For those of you who may be tackling parenthood alone right now, have no fear, TMoM has a great list of Mom & Child Support Groups right here in our area. (Including some for dads, too!)
