Recently I did a Cityline segment on TOP products for new parents. I wanted to share my finds and the research I did to pick items for my registry with BuyBuyBaby.
BuyBuyBaby carries so many great products and the registry is so seamless & easy to use, especially at the comfort at your own home! When we were doing our Wedding Registry I wanted to go in and see the quality of the wine glasses and dishes etc, but this time I wanted to do everything at the comfort of our home with two computer screens open doing our research on the best items for our baby. Tiago and I watched countless videos on product reviews, then made a spreadsheet and figured out what items we really needed right away for Baby Peanut without going overboard. We have a lot of stuff already between the two of us, so we wanted to make sure that we were getting exactly what we needed and not extra.
For the bottles, we found that the Philips Avent Natural Baby Bottle had the best reviews, simply because of their natural bottle nipple, which is supposed to transition between a breast nipple and a bottle nipple so there is less confusion for the baby, but we also liked the anti-colic feature on all their bottles. The starter kit impressed us because it also came with the bottle sterilizer for the microwave to make cleaning easy!
I asked all of you on Instagram your opinions on strollers & carseats and I took a lot of your feedback to heart. When researching the best one for our family, we really liked the UPPAbaby Vista because it came with so many features right off the bat, like the bassinet & toddler seat, bug screen, rain cover etc. We also liked that if we decided to have a second child this stroller could grow with our family by simply buying an additional adapter. It was one of the main reasons we also went with the UPPAbaby Mesa Car Seat, which slides in and out very easily. If you decide to go with the UPPAbaby Vista Stroller, it doesn’t mean you have to go with the Mesa Car seat. The great thing about UPPAbaby is you can go with a different brand of car seat, you’ll just need to buy the proper adapter.
Breastfeeding is something I really hope I can do, and if I can, I found that the Medela Freestyle Double Pump was great for me because I can pump both breasts at the same time, but also the battery is rechargeable and I can travel with the pump easily.
There were so many reasons why we chose the other items, like the Ubbi, because you can use any type of bag inside which makes it more cost efficient, the Nanit Plus Video Wall Mount Baby Monitor because it’s so high tech it reads the humidity in the room, sleeping patterns of your baby, plays music, and has outstanding picture imaging and you can travel with it.
Stay tuned for the Top Baby Health Care items you’ll need for your newborn!
