So You’re Pregnant: Part 3: Newborn Essentials

I’ve made it past the half way point of my pregnancy. Which means its time to visit my favorite baby shop for all the essentials. The baby Luno online baby shop really is a soon-to-be-Mother’s best friend at this stage in a pregnancy. At 23 weeks pregnant, I am feeling wonderful, and cannot wait to bring another little boy into this world! Being pregnant sure is scary, especially if you’re a first time mom, since you don’t quite know everything that you need. While things like life insurance from a provider like PolicyMe are fairly common for most moms, many of us are absolutely clueless when it comes to some of the smaller things we need. I am so excited to share some of my favorite products to have with a newborn. Being a second time mom, I feel much more prepared, and I’ve discovered some amazing products along the way! Sure, with baby number 1, I had the essentials, we survived, but this time, I know I’ll have some of the best products out there!

Kangacare Newborn Cloth Diapers

Kangacare has been one of my favorite cloth diapering brands. Their Lil Joey Newborn & Preemie line are made for littles 4-12 LBS. For mamas choosing to cloth diaper from the very start, these are the perfect little diapers to have!

LILLEbaby Baby Carrier

The LILLEbaby Complete baby carrier is the perfect baby carrier to have. It’s perfect for babies 7-45 LBS and doesn’t require an infant insert. The adjustable seat allows little babies to be worn (which later on allows for forward facing ergonomically). It also has an amazing neck support to support those little heads. The LILLEbaby also has a beck lumbar support for mama to wear baby comfortably. I still use this carrier with my two year old – even while pregnant! It’s such a great quality, comfortable, and overall amazing carrier!

LaLaBu Soothe Shirt

The Lalabu soothe shirt is an adorable nursing tank with a built in pouch for baby. The shirt is intended for babies 7-15 lbs, but it can be worn the entire time you are nursing! This is the perfect top to keep baby close, and right where they belong. It makes for simplified breastfeeding and takes some weight off of your arms. I am so excited to put little squish in my soothe shirt!


Goumikids makes adorable infant goods including these adorable Mitts. Their products are the essentials, and are made to work. I also love the story behind the brand! “goumigiving, supports organizations that rescue, protect and empower victims of human trafficking ” The products are adorable, great quality, and perfect for newborns!

Spray Pal

Cloth diapering moms: What do you do with the poop? Seriously though, it was my biggest struggle cloth diapering baby number 1. That is until I discovered Spray Pal. It’s an amazing shield with a clip. So all you do is clip and spray… DONE! It sounds too good to be true, but it works, and it makes cloth diapering so much easier.

Molly Suds

Laundry, cloth diapers, or not, YOU WILL HAVE a ton of laundry. It’s so important to get products that are safe for baby. There are so many toxic chemicals in products out there, and it is so important to avoid them! Molly Suds creates amazing toxic free products. They also make amazing dryer balls that are the perfect replacement to those dryer sheets! “Molly’s little footprints are on our website and all of our packaging to remind you that our products are safe for even your tiniest family member. “


Puj makes amazing products for babies and toddlers. Their newborn baths are amazing and perfect for little squishes. Their products are simple, great quality, adorable and needed. With so many different products out there, Puj makes it easy to decide what you need!

I am especially excited to use the puj newborn tub and incredibly soft towels!

GB Lyfe

The GB Lyfe travel system is amazing to have with a newborn. The incredible Asana35 DLX Infant Car Seat is super easy to install and will keep your newborn extra safe! The “Fit Loc” belt tightener makes sure the base is installed correctly every single time. The car seat easily clicks into the Lyfe stroller and makes going anywhere with baby a breeze!
Stay tuned for the full review of the travel system coming soon. This stroller has been so much fun to use and it is extra comfortable with my toddler, I am sure it will be perfect with a newborn as well!
