My Newborn Essentials

 Ok let me clear the air, I am by no means an expert. I've only been 2 months at it. Although, I have had quite a few pregnant and new mom friends ask me my favorite must-have products and gear thus far. So, I thought this would be a great place to share my selects and also to help me remember for my next one.

These are items I use almost daily, if not weekly, and have really saved me as a new mother. If there is one thing I have realized in mom world so far, all gear is so personal, your choices should be based on your lifestyle and your baby! All so uniquely and beautifully different. When selecting my baby's products, it was a very consioucs process for us. We wanted less, not more. We wanted to keep purchases minimal, but purposeful. If that meant spending a little more, I felt like the investment was worth it for durability and ease of use.


  1. Morgan, I love your blog and find it very inspiring. And, I'm happy to see you have had a beautiful, healthy baby boy. I am not a mom, but I am someone who cares a great deal about the unnecessary toxicity levels in the products provided for all of us out there. Have you ever used the website ewg.org/skindeep/? They provide great information about unnatural ingredients in all kinds of beauty products. I majorly overhauled the kinds of products that I use myself and I've seen a great difference in my skin, my hair, and my allergies since finding it. You might want to check out the Mustela products you use on your baby. They have kind of 'iffy' ingredients -- including lab-created fragrances and parabens. California Baby products are also available at Target and they are way safer. I even use them on myself and I'm 30! Hope I didn't sound preachy writing that -- I just enjoy sharing the beneficial things that I have learned over the last year after discovering EWG and what kinds of hazards I was using on my own body!

    1. Thank you so much for the heads up! I really appreciate the info, I of course only wants what is best for my baby boy. I will take a look at the site, I really appreciate you sending it to me. I actually have the California Baby product, but haven't give it a try yet. Thanks again for your comment!
