Being one of the first commenters is kind of scary :). I'll come back after I do some more things ... Right after I had my baby, I couldn't live without my nursing cover. It is the best! Stylish and so easy to use. Plus when they get a bit bigger they can't pull it off and expose you to the world, ha ha ha :). I know there are a lot of brands out there, but mine came from Target and was made by The Peanut Shell. Quality is superb!

What I couldn't live without with a newborn... so many things! I'll say my Moby wrap - she loved it and fell asleep in it every time.

When it comes to having a newborn, I simply cannot live without having a clothes washer and dryer. Laundry seems to pile up more as spit up or other surprises come :)

Oh man, I couldn't live without sleep...or so I thought. But really I can't live without an angle dear mini blankie. My girls have all LOVED them and was a true life saver.

Hillary said...

I could not live without my Boppy and the binky! I also could not live without my comfy track pants that I wore daily for comfort. :o)

I have to agree with you on the swaddle...my son loved his swaddle! Also a swing...that was a quick way to get him to sleep too :)

Hi Lindsay, first of all congrats on baby Chloe! I bought 3 bands from you when my baby Sami (now 8 months) was born, and each and every pic of her in them is precious. LOVE THEM! My friends all expect to see her with a large flower growing out of the side of her head each time they see her.

There are two baby products I love and cannot live without. One is a white noise machine. All three of my babies were light sleepers and it was important while getting them to bed that they didnt hear other noises in the house. I love this machine (link http://www.amazon.com/Tranquil-Moments-White-Noise-Machine/dp/B000CMFM6S) because besides playing soothing sounds from the ocean, it also plays a heartbeat! I felt like I could put my babies in the crib, push a button, and they can be soothed by a sound they heard for 9 months in the womb.

Now that Sami is learning her way through real foods, I love the safe baby feeder (here http://www.babysafefeeder.com/) purchased from my local baby store. Created by a dad who sadly lost a baby after choking on a baby biscuit, it allows babies to eat foods without the risk of choking. I put Sami in the highchair and fill this with a piece of melon, and can focus on dinner time with my other two kids without worrying about her. It allows babies to get the nutrients from fresh fruits and vegetables and lets them learn about eating. I love that these two products are smart and practical for my family!

I think that i commented on the wrong post.
My daugther just now 7months. We also love the halo, swaddlers. Which she is too big for now. Blankets blankets..im a big fan myself. :)
And a husband! I had a c-section myself, and caught an awful infection afterwards, i was in and out of the hospital for 3 months. Im very thankful for my husband who def. steped up to the plate.

Chelsea said...

Honestly I cannot live without my many many headbands. I even put headbands on my daughter when she is sick...I know, I know. However, a more practical thing I could not live without those first few months were my Dwell Boppy chair and Aveno Lavendar lotion. Very simple items, but very necessary at least for my Holland girl. I am SO excited you are doing a giveaway and will be keeping my fingers crossed :)

With my first child Baby Einstein music was the best while she slept. If that wasn't playing she didn't sleep as well. Also a diaper warmer for those night time changes. There are probably plenty more but just can't remember them all. You're little Chloe is adorable!

Love all your products. They are beautiful.

Dose said...

Congrats on your new baby!!!

With all three of my girls I couldn't go out without a beautiful headband! All three of my girls were practically bald and no one confused them for boys with a headband from you on their sweet heads!

With my newborn twins I also couldn't live without the swings. They help to keep them sleeping a little longer! And believe me, I relish my limited sleep hours!

Hillary said...

I really want to win the headbands because they are SO adorable, so I also blogged about this giveaway! By the way, your photographer ROCKS! Sooo talented! I am going to send the link to my sister because she is a photographer and this is something she would want to order.

A little about why I can't live without the most precious headbands-ever! After having 3 adorable little boys, I am expecting very lucky baby SISTER. I can't help but dream of adorning her with those sweet little Banner Boutique flowery headbands and feel such joy just thinking about it.

I can't live with out plenty of night gown/sleepsacks. They make diaper changes so much faster in the middle of the night. I love the Kissy Kissy brand.

Jennie VandenAkker said...

I bought 4 of the cutest headbands today. I can't wait to put them on my little girl. Thanks!!

Melissa Wells said...

My baby is 4 months and when he was first born he lived in Infanat gowns, it was so much easier for those many diaper changes.... Also the Boppy bouncy seat has been a huge helper =)

Kim said...

I don't think I can list only one item. My newborn couldn't live without her miracle blanket, Aden and Anais muslin swaddle blankets, Cloud B sleep sheep, and her Fisher Price lamb swing.

I couldn't live without burp cloths and oxyclean. My daughter had acid reflux so we had to keep burp cloths close and oxyclean is the only thing that I have found that will take all stains out of clothes!

Christa said...

With my first baby Titus, I couldn't live without my sheet savers - especially when he was a newborn. They saved me SO much time - not having to change his crib sheet everytime he overfilled his diaper!
With twins on the way this go around, my time will be even more precious!!

Tim, Karla and Titus Curington said...

I just posted a link to your giveaway on my blog -kurlicues.blogspot.com
Hope I win these awesome headbands for my twin girls on the way!! :)

Gale said...

I am a Grammy, but the item i use most as a Grammy is a pack-n-play.We use it for naps, bedtime, on trips, as a toy collector, outside for playtime, etc. Ours is on the second set of twin grandbabies and still in great condition. Wow!

Rachelle said...

I posted the ETSY Site and the Blog on Facebook! I have lots of friends with baby girls in 2009, and 2010!!! I am sure they would love to HAVE more than one of these cute little headbands!
