Being an expectant first-time mom, or a new mom can be overwhelming. As it is, you may be suffering from morning (all-day) sickness, exhaustion, and other fun curve balls being thrown at ya. So I asked some of my clients and followers what their favorite baby products are to help limit the long list of things that you need to do in preparation for your newest addition. Have a look at the list and links:
- Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve Company’s Baby Bum Salve – This was my own personal favorite baby item! Not only is the most effective diaper cream, all of this company’s baby product (and adult!) are amazing. Bonus: If you’re a Clevelander, they’re local!
- Baby Shusher Sleep Miracle Soother – Yes, I agree! I happen to use this in my studio at my newborn sessions. but I also used these on the go with my own kids when they were babies.
- In addition to the above item, this white noise sound machine is great for in-home use, as it plugs in (but also has a battery option if you want to use it portably).
