Motherhood is one of the greatest joys in life, but for newly expecting moms, the journey can be a little overwhelming at first. When it comes to caring for baby, there are so many questions and so many unknowns. You’re so tired, yet so filled with love, all at the same time. We’ve gathered a few items to help make the transition into parenting a little easier. Let’s start with the basics…

Life with a newborn is one wild ride… might as well roll around in style, right? From the pavement to the trail, the all-terrain Indie stroller by Bumbleride is perfect for family adventures. It has all the features you need: a compact, lightweight frame for easy packing, and a fully adjustable backrest, footrest and handle for maximum comfort for you and baby.  ($529 bumbleride.com)

It’s true, swaddling babies helps them feel comforted, so they sleep better and cry less. In addition to our aden + anais swaddles, we love these snuggly loves by Little Unicorn. Made from 100% cotton muslin, these sweet blankets are perfect for a variety of uses—swaddling, burping, or as a cover for nursing. Plus, their prints are get-out-of-town cute!

Sleepless nights can make the first few weeks a bit of a blur for mom and dad. When you’re up again at 2AM for a diaper change, the last thing you need is more snapping and unsnapping. Meet the convertible gown.  A romper and a gown all in one, this cloud covered piece is sure to be a new favorite! ($24.50 teacollection.com)

Every parent knows a well-rested baby is a happy baby. The secret? The SNOO Smart Sleeper. The smartest and safest baby bed on the market, this responsive crib puts baby to sleep in seconds. Developed by Dr. Harvey Kary, SNOO ‘hears’ your baby’s cries and automatically responds with calming sounds and gentle rocking… soothing most fussing in under a minute. ($1,160 happiestbaby.com)

Looking for something super soft and cozy? This sweet 100% pima cotton sweater set is stylish enough for all of those first visits, and practical enough for mom to throw in the wash at the end of the day (or the next day, let’s be honest). ($75.50 teacollection.com)

Master the balancing act. When you have baby in one arm, and a million errands to run, having all the essentials ready within arms reach becomes an absolute necessity. But, when it comes to finding a roomy bag that’s both functional and stylish, it can be tough. The versatile Rambler Satchel from Little Unicorn features all over pockets so all the necessities can stay easily organized and stylishly stowed while on the go. Plus, it’s utilitarian style will look great on Dad too! ($65 littleunicorn.com)

While they might not be the most glamorous, diapers are one of the most important items on the list. A new mom can never have enough! Founded by a Swedish mother and champion of environmental causes, Eco by Naty specializes in eco-friendly and chemical free diapers and wipes.($9.99 naty.com)

Finally, when it comes time for potty training, their Clean Potty is a lifesaver! Derived from 95% renewable materials, it’s completely eco-friendly, requires no cleaning (just a simple flush of a disposable insert!), and is compact and easy to transport when it’s time for a sleepover at grandma’s.
