Being a mom of 3, I have a pretty good idea what you need and what you don’t need when it comes to baby gear! It can be overwhelming for a mom-to-be when registering for a baby shower. So many different products out there and all of them scream at you that you NEED them! But do you really?
Here are 3 practical, useful and AFFORDABLE products that you will actually use after the baby shower.
The Boppy Infant Support Pillow
This is probably the most widely known baby product and it’s also one of the most necessary! The Boppy Pillow is known for offering the best nursing support around. The Boppy pillow is a must-have for any new parents. I own 4 of them and have purchased them as baby shower presents for multiple friends as well. Soft, gentle, durable, and essential. Boppy pillows position baby into an ergonomic position for more comfortable breastfeeding and later transition into the perfect spot for tummy time.
Boppy understands that getting that pre-baby body back is a high priority for new moms, that’s why their award-winning Boppy infant support pillow is teaming with Daily Burn to support mom as well! Throughout March and April, each Boppy Bare Naked, Slipcovered, Luxe, and Heirloom pillow will include a coupon for a 60-day free membership and 60-days of free one-on-one coaching from Daily Burn—a $55 value that is available wherever Boppy Pillows are sold.
Price: $29 and up
Hugaboo Baby Seat
As baby grows, the Hugaboo Baby Seat gives babies ages 3 to 11 months 360 degrees of support as they learn to sit up on their own. Unlike other seats to put babies in before they are able to sit on their own, this one is not harmful to baby’s spine. Please consult with your child’s doctor or chiropractor before attempting to help baby learn to sit up their own!
We like the Hugaboo Baby Seat because it has both leg and back support. Another nice feature is that the cozy cover is washable. The Hugaboo is durable so you can use it for multiple children if you plan to have a large family or pass it on to a friend. This is one baby product that will stand the test of time.
Abiie Beyond Junior Y High Chair
I went through 5 high chairs with my first 2 kids. I wish I had invested in a solid high chair like this one that is designed to last! The Abiie Beyond Junior Y is an ultra-modern and sleek looking high chair that is designed to grow with your child from all the way to adulthood. Its revolutionary EZ-Seat technology not only makes the sitting area easy for cleaning, it enables quick adjustment of the seat in less than 20 seconds. This eco-friendly high chair, made from top-quality European cultivated beech wood, is a perfect choice for your family that will last for years to come.
