As a first time mom, it can be overwhelming trying to figure out some of the newborn essentials you need for your baby. When I was putting together my baby registry, I consulted MANY of blog posts and Youtube videos in order to curate the perfect list. It can definitely be a little overwhelming setting up your registry for your baby shower. I have put together a list of the items that I have USED during Camdyn’s first three months of life to hopefully help other mamas.
I left out some basic items such as clothes, towels, washcloths, and bibs. Additionally, I included some items that you can definitely do without, but that I found to be extremely useful with Camdyn.
You can watch my full newborn essentials video on Youtube, but all of the items mentioned in my video are linked below!
