I asked about Baby’s First Six Months: Essential Baby Products
As a first time mom, I was clueless as to what I absolutely needed to get through the first 6 months with baby. I knew I’d need diapers and clothes but how many? and what else!? So I turned to the experts. A few month’s ago when I was creating my baby registry, I posted and asked all you moms out there what were the essential baby products to get through the first six months with baby. You are the experts and I wanted to get your advice! Here is that post if you are interested. I then made sure that these items were on my baby registry and that I had them in hand by the time baby arrived.
There are so many lists out there that name millions of things that you “need” for a new baby. We do not have a vast fortune to spend on purchasing every “must have item”. So I just wanted to know what were the few essential baby products I could not live without.
Thank you moms for your responses, you are all life savers! The responses were pretty consistent. Their were 20 items (beyond the obvious clothes) that were recommended as must have essential products for baby’s first six months. I have listed them below. I linked to the brand if a specific brand was recommended. If no brand was specified, then I linked to the one I chose and will be reviewing. I use 100% organic cotton and natural products whenever possible so I substituted Burt’s Bees Diaper Rash Cream for the recommended Desitin.
The Top 20 List of Essential Baby Products for the First Six Months:
5. Diaper Bag
7. Rock n’ Play
9. Nursing Bras
11. Nursing Pads
12. Bottle Brush
17. Burp Clothes
18. Jogging Stroller
19. Infant Car Seat
20. Extra Infant Car Seat Base – easily take either car!

Thank you so much for your support, it is greatly appreciated!
Here we are two weeks from my due date! I have purchased or received all of these essential baby products. The plan is to use them in the first six months. Once that time has passed, I will review each item to help new moms decide what must have items to put on their baby registry. If I end up using any other items that are essential, I will be sure to spread the word!
