The Mid-South's Premier Parenting Resource

Our Favorite Items for Babies {plus GIVEAWAY}

One of the most difficult things for a lot of expectant moms is trying to figure out what you'll need {or want} for your new baby. You've got a million other things going on in your mind, and it's hard to hone in on what exactly your necessities are. What doesn't help are those old ladies who tell you things like, "I only had a blanket and one cloth diaper for the first year, and we did just fine." Thanks, Nana. But I think I'll be needing a little more than that...

Although it's true, and there are few things that we absolutely need for a baby to survive, there are certainly items that make life much easier as a new mom.

We've put together a bundle of items to make your life {and your baby's life} just a little easier.

We'll break it down for you below this lovely photo taken using a chair, a lot of light, and some really complicated acrobatic techniques...

Dr. Smith's diaper rash spray {$9.99}

Can we just take a moment here and appreciate all that is Dr. Smith's diaper rash spray?! I really wish I knew about this stuff when my son was still in diapers--he used to get the absolute worst and painful-looking raw bottom, and just the act of smearing cream on his hiney would send him into fits. This stuff is a true life saver! But I digress...
