BornFree Asks: What were the products you couldn’t live without?

After having successfully delivered three babies and managed to keep them alive until at least toddlerhood, I feel like an expert in certain areas and a complete novice in others.

Remember how overwhelming being a new mother was for the first time. When you went to fill out your registry, didn’t you just want the safest, most trusted and convenient products available.

I thought it would be helpful to new parents if we made a list of our favorite products (toys, bottles teethers, etc.) – you know the ones you couldn’t have survived your babies first year without.

I’ll start out . . .

I picked a specific crib and my mom went out and bought it for me. It wasn’t super expensive and it was actually secondhand . . . but I have used that crib through all three babies and I LOVE it.

Since it was secondhand, I don’t even know what brand it is or where you could find it. But my real recommendation is pick things that you’re going to love – and don’t spend an arm and a leg. It’s not necessary.
