Hospital + Newborn Essentials

March 11, 2016

I am so excited to finally be sharing this list with all of you! I’ve been working on this post since December of last year!! I’m so proud of this list, each and every product is something I LOVE and believe in. My hope in sharing these products and shops with you is that you’ll find some of your favorites, too!

Starting tomorrow, I’ll be doing giveaways for a few of these products, so make sure you’re following me on Instagram!


Hospital Essentials

Fawn & Clover

This gown and beanie set is to. die. for. One of my favorite ways to dress my babies for bed when they are newborns is in a gown, it makes middle of the night diaper changes so much easier, and baby is always super comfortable.

 Baby Gown & Knot Hat Set · Other faves from Fawn & Clover: crib shoes, cuffed leggings, organic hoodie

Bubba Baby

I absolutely adore this receiving blanket and burp cloth set! Not only are they gender neutral (which I LOVE), they are super soft and beautifully made. I’m gonna be cleaning up spit up in style! And I can’t wait to wrap my baby boy in this gorgeous receiving blanket.

Shop Bubba Baby · I’m giving away a receiving blanket to one lucky winner on March 13th, don’t miss out!

Ollie & Tate

The hospital is going to put a hat on your baby, why not make it a cute one?! These infant knot hats by Ollie & Tate are gorgeous. Handcrafted to perfection and very soft. I can’t wait to see how cute my baby looks wearing these knotted hats!

Shop Ollie & Tate here · A few more faves of mine by Ollie & Tate: bibdana & organic wood teether.


Boob & Baby

This boob butter from Boob & Baby has so many incredible benefits. It stops nipple dryness and cracking, making breastfeeding less painful. It helps you breastfeed more successfully. It’s not sticky and thick like most nipple creams. It doesn’t need to be washed off before nursing!

Boob & Baby uses cupuacu butter as a vegan alternative to lanolin. Their boob butter is the first lanolin, shea and beeswax free nipple cream. You can read about the possible dangers of lanolin here.

Newborn Essentials

B.box Baby

I am planning on breastfeeding my son, but I know how life works and things don’t always go as expected. With both of my daughters, we ended up supplementing or switching to formula altogether. With Brooklynn, I breastfed for less than 6 weeks due to pain, milk supply issues, and lack of determination (thanks to exhaustion and becoming a mama for the first time). Breastfeeding was so much easier than formula feeding when it came to nighttime. With breastfeeding, you can pop your boob out and continue laying down, not even having to get out of bed. With formula, you have to get out of bed, fill the bottle with water, scoop formula into it, shake, THEN give it to your baby! I seriously wish I would’ve known about this bottle from b.box sooner!! I’m so excited to have it on hand in case breastfeeding doesn’t go as planned!

The bottle has a compartment that stores the formula and the top part stores the water. So it’s all measured out and ready for your baby when they get hungry (when you’re ready to use it, you just plunge and shake)! The formula part can also be detached so you can use it for breast milk :) Perfect for on-the-go and nighttime.

bottle + dispenser by b.box baby · Here are some more products from b.box baby I’m excited to try: travel drying rack & diaper wallet. I’m giving away this bottle on Instagram on March 14th, don’t miss it!

At Home With Avery Grace

At Home With Avery Grace has some of the cutest bohemian, mountain style clothing. Harlym loves her big sister shirt and I can’t wait to put my son in this onesie! It is obviously adorable, like all the other clothing by At Home With Avery Grace!

Owl Love You onesie · Here are a few more of my favorites: Baby BirdJust Moosin’ Around & Free Hugs.

Cover Me Ponchos

Absolutely love these functional and stylish ponchos! They come in a ton of different designs, ensuring they’ll have one for any and every mama’s style. They can be used as a car seat cover, nursing cover, postpartum top, even a comfy blanket for your babe! It has endless possibilities.

Modern Burlap

I’ve been a fan of Modern Burlap for over a year now, and have waited patiently for the day I could wrap my baby in one of their swaddle blankets! If you take a look at their website/shop (after you stop drooling over the gorgeous designs) you’ll notice that everything they offer is black and white. I’m obsessed with anything monochrome, so I was instantly sold. Then I discovered that Modern Burlap doesn’t use black and white designs just for the sake of style. High-contrast, black and white patterns enhance your baby’s vision and stimulate brain development. In addition, they use organic cotton muslin swaddles that are both eco-conscious and gentle on baby’s skin! Most importantly, muslin is known as a safer alternative to other fabrics to protect your baby from overheating and reducing the risk of SIDS. The material is lightweight, breathes well and helps to regulate your baby’s body temperature.
So in addition to being adorable, they benefit your baby in a thousand different ways! How amazing is that?!

Milk Swaddle Blanket & Confetti Swaddle Blanket · A few more favorites by Modern Burlap: XO Blanket (that my girls use every day), Cactus Swaddle Blanket, 1 Samuel 1:27 Swaddle Blanket.

Thank you so much for reading! I hope you guys are able to find some of your new faves, thanks to this list! I’m so excited to use each and every product once my son is born (in a few weeks!!!) I’ll be doing another post around 6 weeks after he’s born to update you all with pictures and how much we’re are loving and using these products.

    I ordered the boob butter last night. I’m crossing my fingers it works. After nursing three babies I know how hard and painful it is on your nipples at first. I really have never found anything that works well. With #4 on the way, it is worth a try. Thanks!
