    Well since I have older children and expecting a carrier would definitely come in hand during all of their sporting events. Car seats and strollers are sometimes too big!

    I loved my Moby Wrap, but I can tell that the Baby K’tan would be so much easier to use! We couldn’t have done without a Halo Sleepsack and a Rock and Play!

    I’m pregnant with my first, so what I think will be essential may not be. I imagine that swaddling blankets, lots of pillow for breast feeding, and a wrap or carrier for baby wearing will come in handy those first few weeks.

    If the first one was any indication, our essentials were our A&A swaddles, the Medela Pump in Style, and the yoga ball we used to bounce little boo to sleep. It could be a whole different story with boo #2, though…

  41. Allison says October 7, 2013

    “Essential,” to me, means something that is really necessary. I’d say bottles, pacifiers, and diapers are the true essentials! A baby carrier seems like more of a “nice to have” than a “must have,” just because a stroller or simply carrying the baby will work as well. That said, I’d love to have this carrier.

    With my son, he was only content if he was laying on me. There was no soothie that would comfort him. I didn’t have a wrap/sling and we didn’t get a carrier until he was about 3, maybe 4 months old. We only used it when we went hiking or grocery shopping though. He’s now 15 months and we are expecting his baby sister on Christmas Eve! I came across this product at the Great Cloth Diaper Change in my area but lost that raffle, lol. This is on my baby registry now but to win one would be even better! I plan to use it all the time so that I can snuggle her and keep up with my son at the same time, as well as be able to breastfeed easily while doing other things, if needed.

    As far as any other newborn essentials, I’m hoping a pacifier (my son wouldn’t use them) and a nice soft blankie will do the trick this time! *fingers crossed*

    We nursed so those little breast pads for leaky boobs are great, a nursing bra or vest was also fantastic, lanolin was useful during those first weeks of nursing. I also think a good baby carrier and swing was essential for us, it works amazing with colicky babies, another thing i think was a must fir us and our colicky baby was gripe water/ gas drops and burp cloths galore. :) I also heard great thing about sleeping sacks, but i never used any since we co-sleep… but for crib sleepers that might help them stay warm during the night. :)
