My Favourite Baby Essentials

Updated: Jun 2

A while back, a client asked me what baby gear I thought was the most essential (because as you know there's a lot of baby products out there).

Here's my list of the top 5 baby essentials.

1. A Good Pac n' Play.

I don't just like these for traveling, I think that they are excellent to have set up as an extra ‘station' on the main floor of your house so that you don't have to keep going upstairs. It also gives you a safe place to put a baby down, change their diaper, and keep all your change supplies in one location (away from a green-eyed toddler ) or any green-eyed pets. My pac n' play was a lifesaver with Hendrix; as I had 2 Alaskan malamutes roaming around and 2 other children... My favorite brand is Mamas & Papas, but they don't ship to Canada. This one from Connolly is the closest I've seen to it.

2. A Haakaa Silicone Pump.

I wish they had this product on the market when I had a baby. I LOVE the concept of it; being that rather than losing breastmilk to your breast pad, bra, etc, it's collected and stored for your little one.
