As I mentioned on the blog a few weeks ago, K and I are expecting our first baby later this fall. We are really excited and have enjoyed planning our registry for a few baby showers coming up in the next few months, thrown by wonderful family and friends. Today I’m sharing my 5 Must Have Items for a New Baby, both for baby items that I have purchased and for items I am planning to add to our baby registry.

My five “must have items” are also great ideas for the working mom. I’m planning to go back to work later in the spring, and I’m already thinking about ways to be prepared and help create an easy transition for us.

First on our list are baby bottles, specifically Playtex Babyโ„ข Nurserยฎ with Drop-Insยฎ Liners. I picked up both the 4 oz {118 mL} and 8-10 oz {236-300 mL} size bottles, available at Target. I chose the 3-pack bottle packages. Target is the perfect “one stop shop” for baby items, and the #1 place to create a baby registry. These Playtex Nurser baby bottles will make for better beginnings for our new addition to the family.

These Playtex baby bottles will work well for us because they help the baby latch on naturally, and promote an easy switch between breast and bottle feeding. The bottles also allow for a more natural feeding rhythm. The Playtex Nurser bottles can be used for both breastfed and formula fed babies, whatever is your personal preference.

I found these Playtex baby bottles in aisle 11 at my local Target store, in the Baby section.

Playtex Nurser bottles use a soft liner that collapses gently as the baby eats, which can prevent air bubbles and discomfort for your baby, reducing colic. I also picked up Playtex Drop-Ins 100 count Liners for the larger baby bottle size {8-10 ounces}. These disposable liners are pre-formed and pre-sterilized, which will save us time and allow us to make a fresh bottle at anytime, anywhere we need it. The liners fit easily into each new bottle.

A few more items at the top of my list for our new baby are listed below. Second is the Playtex Baby Diaper Genie, which will be a great addition to our nursery.

Third are diapers, so we can be prepared before the baby arrives! Target offers a large selection of baby diapers, in various sizes. I will definitely be stocking up before I go back to work.

Fourth are baby wipes, available in different types and package sizes. Based on my experience watching family and friend’s babies, I know we’ll need to have lots of wipes ready to go ๐Ÿ™‚

Fifth is infant formula, also available from Target.
