6 Products every new mom needs
This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx
We all know the bigger items to purchase like cribs, strollers, etc but what about the smaller items? I was so happy when Babbleboxx sent over these mom must-haves to share for a new mom basket. These 6 products every new mom needs are a great way to share with a new mom to be or even to purchase on your own as a new mom.
It’s baby season. Being a mom-to-be or new mom can feel daunting when it comes to baby products for the first time. After seven years I realized baby products have evolved since having my first. It was like starting over and I had no idea where to start when it came to the smaller things.
These 6 baby products would make a great basket for baby shower season
Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®)
We’ve all heard of Ronald McDonald House Charities®. They’ve created programs that create a home away from home that provides support and resources to families who travel far from home for the medical care of their child. The Ronald McDonald Family Room® programs also provide the families a private place in the hospital to relax or decompress.
Another program they have the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® which helps bring medical, dental, and health care resources to underserved communities where they’re needed the most. Ronald McDonald House Charities® has a network in 62 countries and regions around the world.

Baby Magic® Gentle Baby Lotion and Gentle Hair and Body Wash
Baby Magic® was always a family favorite. I remember my parents using it on my siblings. I also have been using it on Micah. Plus all of their products are dermatologist tested. They use nourishing formulas, wholesome ingredients and always made without parabens, phthalates, dyes, and sulfates. Which is a big plus in the mom community.
Gentle Baby Lotion
We use their gentle baby lotion in the mornings and after our nightly bath times. Plus their lotion contains good-for-you ingredients like Vitamins A, B and E and Aloe to help moisturize dry skin while helping calm and soothe. plus, this lotion keeps the baby’s skin extra moisturized during the day or after bath time.
Gentle Hair and Body Wash
We’ve always loved Baby Magic’s Gentle Hair and Body Wash. It’s tear-free and sulfate-free – enriched with nourishing Calendula and Coconut Oil to leave your baby soft and clean. Plus the size is always perfect and lasts us a while. A little goes a long way.
Rock from the Sky, by Jon Klassen from Candlewick Press
Rock from the sky by Jon Klassen is a book about a hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it. It’s a great book for all ages 40-page picture book format, and the whole family will be laughing out loud.
The author is a Caldecott Medalist for his previous New York Times bestselling (and equally
hilarious and deadpan) Hat Trilogy picture book titles: I Want My Hat Back, This is Not
My Hat, We Found a Hat.
Baby Wrap Carrier and 3-in-1 Postpartum Recovery Support Belt
KeaBabies is a modern parenting brand we have fallen in love with since Micah has been born. Their mission: is to inspire modern parents to build strong parent-child bonds and create wonderful moments together.
Their 3-in-1 Postpartum Recovery Support Belt is a must-have. I used a maternity belt during pregnancy that a postpartum belt was a must when having a c-section. They help the swelling of the abdomen, supports the spine for breastfeeding, helps return the hip to pre-pregnancy. Plus it is made from premium quality material.
KeaBabies Baby Wrap Carrier is a great start to babywearing. My first baby didn’t like babywearing much but Micah is a whole other monster. He enjoys the closeness of babywearing especially when nursing. This one has the perfect stretch, provides even weight distribution for best back support. They also have a great supportive Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/keababieslove.

OxiClean is a staple in our house especially when it comes to kids and households. I’m forever using it as a pretreat on Micah’s clothing. Since he started solids everything has been getting stained and our regular fabric cleaner hasn’t been cutting it. So soaking his clothes in OxiClean is a must. OxiClean is America’s #1 Stain Fighter Brand. Their Free & Clear version is free of dyes, perfumes, chlorine, and optical brighteners. It’s also color-safe and you can use it in all wash temps plus HE washer machines. You can add it to your next Target pickup order HERE.
