Your baby is on the way—there are exciting times ahead! To ensure you’re properly prepared for that bundle of joy—as well as the sleepless nights and fatigue—I have put together a list of newborn must-haves.
These clothes, accessories, supplements, and other products are designed to improve the health of your little one. They should also make your life easier!
You can see the full list here on Amazon, but I have highlighted some of the most important products below.
Postpartum and Breastfeeding Bundle
The food you eat can change your breast milk and may affect your baby’s health. This bundle was developed with that in mind. It contains a range of supportive nutrients designed for you and your baby.
You’re going to be spending a lot of your time lulling your baby to sleep and worrying they’ll wake up. So, why not let the Baby Shusher do some of the work for you? It’s a portable machine designed to lull your little one to sleep using a calming “shushing” sound.
<h3>Kyte BABY Soft Bamboo Rayon Zipper Footies</h3>
Available in a variety of colors, these super-soft bamboo footies are comfortable, breathable, and stretchy. There are sizes for babies up to 24 months.
haakaa Baby Nail Trimmer
Worried about hurting your baby’s fingers or toes when cutting their nails? Try this handy nail trimmer instead. It’s safe and works great. You can even use it on your own nails—trust me, it works!
Evereden Baby Bathtime Duo
Pay close attention to the ingredients in soaps, shampoos, and anything else that touches your baby’s skin. They’re often loaded with chemical additives that can cause harm. That’s why I love this shampoo, body wash, and moisturizer combo. They are created by pediatricians, dermatologically tested, and made from natural and non-toxic ingredients like avocado oil and coconut oil.
Graco® Pack 'n Play® Simple Solutions™ Playard
In addition to being lightweight, sturdy, and portable, this playard has an integrated diaper changer and storage pouches. It’s handy for all those diapers and wipes that seem to accumulate in their thousands.
iHealth No-Touch Forehead Thermometer
We’ve all been guilty of obsessing over body temperatures the last few years, but it’s an obsession that mothers have known for generations! Your baby can’t tell you when they’re unwell; you need to check. That’s where this nifty little thermometer comes in.
I’ve tried many no-touch thermometers in the past. Some stop working for no apparent reason, others give varied readings. This one, however, works like a charm and that’s why it’s on this list!
Ninni Co Breastfeeding Promoting Pacifier
Endorsed by doctors, dentists, and feeding specialists, this orthodontic pacifier has a skin-like texture and a nipple shape. Your baby will love it.
MONTESSORI MAMA Sensory Toys Baby Teething Toys & Baby Rattle
This set of toys aids with baby brain development. The toys are non-toxic and made from splinter-free wood. They are very easy to clean (always a plus) and can help with hand-eye coordination, visual learning, fine motor skills, and more.
(Buy Here)Amazon Basics Portable Travel Window Blackout Curtain Shades
Invaluable. That’s the best way to describe blackout curtains and blinds. If you’re sensitive to light and struggle to sleep, you’ll probably know how beneficial they can be. These blackout curtains are on this list because they can help your newborn to sleep, but they’ll work just as well for you.
As they are part of the Amazon Basic range, they are very affordable and surprisingly good quality.
Klaire Labs Ther-Biotic Baby - Infant Probiotic Powder
This probiotic blend is designed for babies. It contains a 5 billion CFU blend of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium species. Just mix it with breastmilk or food (make sure you read the label) and let it do its thing!
Products for Your Newborn
You probably already have a few things for your newborn. If you’re like millions of other parents, those things will include an endless quantity of clothes and accessories that they’ll grow out of in a few months. But your baby needs more than cute boots and hats!

If you have an Amazon account, you can create a wish list of newborn essentials (and whatever else you want for yourself or your baby) and send it to people you know.
