There is sooo much to buy when it comes to having a baby! If you're like me, you want to know what's absolutely necessary to buy versus the items that would just be nice to have. This list is a compilation of must have items as well as fun things for you and the baby!

If you are going to breastfeed, having a nursing cover is so nice when you are out and about! I love this tribal print cover. Not only does it work as a nursing cover, it's also a carseat canopy, shopping cart cover, stroller cover to block out the sun, or it can even be worn as an infinity scarf! Another stylish one I like is this beauty

Jogging stroller. I like either the Graco or the BOB jogger. This is a must if you want to jog with your baby! I love it because it has the bigger, sturdier rubber tires that can travel on different terrains. It also comes with your carseat and base! For a smaller stroller, I like the 

I would not have survived without my Medela! This is for moms who pump several times a day and want to be hands free. It is seriously a life saver when it comes to pumping! I have tried several pumps, and some actually hurt my breasts to the point where I was crying. The Medela did not cause me any pain!

The Ninja and Magic Bullet Nutribullet have truly been a life saver when it comes to quick, healthy meals! I can whip up a delicious smoothie in no time and know I'm getting lots of good vitamins and minerals. 

We bought this cute bassinet, but turns out neither of my kids wanted to sleep in it! I like that it has a little storage underneath to put a blanket, diapers and wipes. Another awesome feature is that is comes with a soft light and soothing music!

Cribs. There are so many details to look for when shopping for a crib! Color, is it convertible, shape, size etc. Here are a few of the ones I really like! Bonus when it has a drawer underneath for sheet storage, and an attached changer! 

I spent hours and hours looking up the perfect carseat. I interviewed other moms to see what they liked and what worked for them. I personally like the Graco convertible carseats. It can be rear facing, forward facing, and then it changes to just the booster seat; you can really get a lot of use out of this! 

Yoga pants, yoga pants, and more yoga pants! I cannot ever have enough yoga pants. They are so comfortable not only for working out, but just wearing everyday around the house. Plus there are so many cute prints out there!

Hydrolyzed collagen. Collagen is one of the most important nutrients needed to to ensure the health and vitality of your skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints. Everything that connects our body, keeping skin tone and joints strong, needs collagen. Our grandparents got collagen from using the bones of chicken to make chicken stock, but that is rarely a practice we use anymore, so it's important to get the collagen from another source. 100% pure grass fed hydrolyzed collagen from pure, pasture-raised, grass-fed cows.
