Navigating the seemingly endless market of baby products has proved fun at times and overwhelming at others. Thomas even jokes that a crucial part of the job description for new parents is “Must be able to spend hours seeking out the best baby products!” We’ve done our fair share of research and trial and error over the last five months, taking many suggestions from trusted friends and even trying out many things that people told us to stay away from. Every baby and every family is so unique; it’s important to remember that what works well for one may not work at all for another.

Play Gym

We loved the idea of investing in a great-looking play gym that could grow with Clementine. This one, by Lovevery, was thoughtfully designed to entertain babies from the earliest days all the way up to two years old (it transforms into a mini tent!).


Choosing a stroller felt like one of the most overwhelming tasks when creating our baby registry. We’ve been thrilled with our decision of our Joolz Day3 stroller that converts from a bassinet to a forward and backward facing seat.

Sound Machine

Whether we’re using it for white noise or as a nightlight during overnight feedings, the Hatch Baby Rest has been one of our must-haves since day one. It’s easy to control via an app on our phones and can also be used as an okay-to-wake clock during the toddler years.

Whether you’ve recently welcomed your own bundle of joy or are encouraging a friend or family member who is a new parent, we rounded up a master list of our top-used and loved baby products from the last few months. We’ve relied on many of these items daily to keep Clementine happy and healthy, to stay organized at home and on the go, and to help make our transition to life as a family of three as seamless as possible.
