“We have just a few weeks until the arrival of our first baby and I can hardly wait! Becoming a mommy is exciting and also a bit nerve racking, with all the preparation and making space for a new little someone. Like all moms I wanted to be sure I had all the best things for my baby, but there are so many products marketed to new moms it's hard to know what really works. I spent hours searching through forums and blogs, reading Amazon reviews, and a few things popped up over and over. So here is my list of stuff mom after mom recommended as essential. I will update with my own reviews after we've had a chance to put some of these products to use (can't wait!!!) Moms, please add your own reviews and recommendations in the comments.
