Only 6 days left until baby girl #2 arrives! I’ve finally finished up my shopping and since I’m constantly getting asked what are my must have baby items I thought I’d put together a round up of some of my favorites. Scroll to bottom of post for all the must have baby necessities links.

**Post may contain affiliate links.


1. Breastfeeding or not, a Boppy pillow is a must-have! I’ve used it with both Joseph and Olivia, and I will definitely be using it again.

2. A cute Boppy cover is essential!

3. This bassinet with removable baskets will be perfect to keep the baby girl close to me while I sleep and work!

4. When you live in Florida, you’re almost always in and out of air conditioning, so I use muslin wrap blankets in case they get cold. They’re light enough to keep them wrapped all day and they can also be used later on as a favorite blank, just like Olivia does.

5. When Joseph was born he had extremely sensitive skin. I probably should have played it safer with Olivia because her skin was even more delicate. Caring for her sensitive skin was a full-time job. This time, I plan on being prepared with products like the ones I was sent in the Honey Buns Baby Kit. The Honey Buns Baby Kit products were designed specifically for babies, but they’re also perfect for everyone, especially those with sensitive skin. I’ve already tested the Honey Buns Royal Jelly Baby butter on Olivia and I. It’s an amazing product and it leaves her skin so so soft! For more info on the Honey Buns kits, click here.

6. A stylish and roomy baby bag is another must have! This striped baby bag comes with a bottle holder, changing mat and small detachable clutch.

7. Olivia loves her binky! Within the first couple of days of bringing her home, I must have went through a dozen of them because I kept losing them until I finally bought her a pacifier clip. I’ve been hooked on them ever since! There’s so many cute options with matching headbands!

8. These Born-Free muslin and terry cloth bibs are perfect for babies with sensitive skin. I bought mine at Marshall’s, but you can also find them here.

Last week I got a box of goodies from Babbblebox and it was an early Mother’s Day surprise filled to the brim with items that I need for the kids and a few must haves for me. It was basically the perfect combo for a Mother’s Day gift basket. Need some Mothers Day gift ideas? Check out out some of the hottest items that any new mom will be sure to love.

Fuji Film INSTAX

Must-Have Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Must-Have Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Just like any other mom, I love to take pictures of my babies. The FujiFilm INSTAX makes the process even more fun and allows me to instantly enjoy the beautiful picture. We now have a ton of instant pictures that I turned into magnets and my toddler gets a kick out of seeing all his brothers up on the fridge and starts calling out their names. I even got a little creative and took pictures of some outfits that came to mind and pinned them up in my closet so I wouldn’t forget. The possibilities are endless! The FujiFilm INSTAX Mini 70 is the latest edition with better picture quality that now also has a slimmer design making it perfect for your bag or even diaper bag

 Gerber Childrenswear

Must-Have Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Who doesn’t love Gerber? They literally have every one of your baby needs covered! My favorite must have are the Gerber onesies that are available in short and long sleeve in sizes ranging from Newborn, 0-3M, 3-6M, 6-9M, 12M, 18M and 24M . My son and daughter go through Gerber onesies fast so it’s great that this necessity made of 100% knit cotton is affordable. Makes the perfect basket stuffer!

Sesame Street Naturals

Must-Have Mother's Day Gift Ideas

As parents we avoid paragons, phthalates and sulfates, so it’s nice to see products what we need for our kids with their favorite characters from Sesame Street that children will love to apply themselves. These  Sesame Nourishing Naturals products that are petroleum free (love that) are available at Target along with the rest of the collection.

Boudreaux Butt Paste

Must-Have Mother's Day Gift Ideas

I’ve been using talc free Butt Paste after every diaper change for  rashes and irritations for what seems like forever to me. I’m never without and have a tube of it at home, in the baby bag, and in the car. It’s a total lifesaver and comes in regular, extra strength, and even a natural version that provides relief from the very first use. It is available at Amazon or your local favorite baby store.

 Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant

Must-Have Mother's Day Gift Ideas

If there’s one thing that I could start my day with everyday (besides coffee), it would be with a big radiant smile! The new cleaning sensation Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant will give any mom just that in only 5 days and I don’t know about you, but that’s definitely a practical gift worth gifting. It’s perfect to gift along with a pretty lipstick.

 Mustela® Maternity Stretch Marks Prevention Cream

Must-Have Mother's Day Gift Ideas

I have six kids and you best believe I have stretch marks. Lots of them! If there’s one thing that I would gift any new mom or mom-to-be, it would be the Mustela® Maternity Stretch Marks Prevention Cream. 97% of the women who’ve used it claim to have never developed stretch marks. Why didn’t I know about this sooner!? I’m using it now during my postpartum phase and it instantly absorbs and visibly moisturizes and smells just as amazing as every other Mustela product that I’ve bought. Receive 20% off your entire purchase at www.MustelaUSA.com using the code MustelaBabbleBox.

I’d love to know which one of these items would you pick for your own Mother’s Day basket?
