We have many babies being born in our family these days! Even Steve’s nieces had babies within months of each other. Needless to say, I’ve learned a lot about must haves for new moms! And I mean the kinds of things you forget to put on your registry, but are important. Items that you don’t necessarily think of as essential, but ARE!
Have you heard of TempTraq? It’s the only wearable monitor that continually monitors temperature for up to 24 hours! All you need is an Apple® or Android™ compatible mobile device and the free TempTraq app! Other features of TempTraq:
- The patch stays secure and is comfortable – and is safe for children of any age to wear
- You can monitor fevers remotely without disturbing your children; they can be alseep in the next room while you receive alerts on your phone
- The patch delivers continuous temperature readings wirelessly (Bluetooth 4.0) for up to 24 hours, giving piece of mind to a new parent
Diaper Bag that Doubles As a Purse
Don’t skim on a cheaply made diaper bag and THEN carry a purse as well! That’s just too many bags and too much fussing when you are trying to push a stroller. Get a premium canvas diaper bag that looks stylish – and that can wipe clean – and that holds your wallet and other goodies as well. ONE bag, my friends!
Night Lights and Batteries
I grouped these together because you can get them inexpensively in bulk or from the dollar store! You’ll need the night lights for groping around in the middle of the night while grabbing baby for feedings (multiple times). And as far as the batteries, you’ll need quite a few in various sizes for all of the devices you’ll get: monitors, toys, electronic chairs, and more. Have a several of both of these on hand!
Stroller and Carseat Travel System
A lot of people register for a stroller and carseat separately. Insider tip: get a travel system! Get a carseat that you can slide right out of your vehicle and into a stroller base. New moms love the ultralight version too. They come in sets!
Streaming TV Subscription
While nursing and while baby is napping, catch up on your favorite shows! New moms really appreciate a streaming subscription if they don’t have one already, so it makes the perfect gift.
What do you think of my list? I’d love to hear your must haves for new moms in the comments!
