MAM Infant Pacifier 0 months – all the others are too big!

Waterproof Flannel Pads – so useful for changing areas, cribs, laps, your carpet, a car seat…anything you don’t want to be covered in spit, pee or poop.

An awesome stroller – don’t skimp. You’ll want to leave the house and a great travel system makes it so much easier.

High quality moisturizer – it might just be me, but I doubt it. My normally average skin has become drier than the Sahara.
