First on the list is Little Unicorn muslin swaddlers (x2- because we always have a backup.)
Everyone knows how great muslin swaddle blankets are. They are so versatile! Perfect for snuggling, nursing, tummy time, or even as a stroller cover, Little Unicorn Swaddlers is where it’s at! Plus as an added bonus, these blankets are HUGE at 47″x 47″ and come in glorious patterns for every style.
2. Mary Meyer cuddle bear (a baby’s first)
It’s tradition in our home for the newest member of the family to get a little cuddle buddy on their first day home from the hospital. Our girls (2 and 4) fell in love with these bears from Mary Meyer and insisted on one for baby brother or sister. These are snuggly soft and come in three different sizes. (This one here is the smallest at 11″.)
Talk about being prepared!! This bag holds anything and everything and is perfect for travel, multiple kiddos, or even the over-packer mom like myself. It has TONS of amazing features, but I’ll let you peruse through those here. After we tore through two diaper bags in six months with our first, my sweet hubby buckled down and purchased the Be Prepared for my birthday. BEST. GIFT. EVER. Over four years later this extraordinary diaper bag is still going strong! Though, with so many cute patterns I’m tempted to buy another. You know… just in case. 😉
You will love these 100% natural, fully biodegradable pacifiers. It is softer than alternative silicone binkies and offers a unique one-piece design.
Binkie clips are a definite must-have at our house. I am constantly searching for a spare pacifier if it isn’t directly attached to my tiny human. These suede clips are beautifully crafted and offer a large array of color choices.
Tummy time or car seat rides tend to require some form of distraction for our kiddos. We fell in love with the Baby Lit line – the bold colors and fun characters make them a win/win!
We have a huge book obsession at our house… We take books everywhere and read constantly. These board book versions are the perfect introduction to classic tales with fun concepts like: counting, colors, or shapes.
We tend to have early teethers… not that our kids get their teeth quickly, they start teething early and don’t pop their first tooth till around 10 or 11 months. Yeah… So toys, like this adorable wooden teether, are always within arms reach. Isn’t it the cutest little airplane you’ve ever seen?! My hubby might have made fun of me for picking yet another pilot-related toy, but I can’t help myself. I’m a #pilotwife all the way!
For those days (or nights) when you want to actually feel like a normal human being and go out for once, these bottles are wonderful! They are a simple design, easy to clean and really help reduce the amount of colic babes can typically get from a bottle. We tried five or six other types and these were the winner for us. They are also a Baby Cubby Pick!
Like I mentioned, we have early teethers. No more drooling through every single article of clothing before lunch or screaming, crying kids in need of consoling (of the tooth variety). Hooray! Also, since it helps with the pain and inflammation associated with teething, it is rare that I notice a new tooth pop up. (I know, it sounds weird.) Both our girls had all four first year molars come in at the same time… Guess who didn’t even realize until the doc was like “nice teeth!” at their 18 month appointments… Me. These necklaces are a LIFESAVER! I recommend them to all my mommy friends.
But- what if there was a place that alleviated all of that stress? One that did all the research for you, only provided the best-rated products, fully understood the complexity of parenthood AND one that even rewarded you for all of your awesome mommy power??

How do they do this?
The Baby Cubby has a rad team of mommies and daddies who literally spend hundreds of hours pouring over the best and safest baby gear. After all this hard work they hand it all up to the rest of us basically, on a silver platter. That alone is worth its weight in gold if you ask me! They have a ridiculously friendly and knowledgeable staff willing to answer any questions even us newbie parents might have. Plus, as a pretty cool bonus, they have a stroller track you can test drive those strollers on! Stroller races anyone? If you’ve ever been to their brick and mortar shop (there in Lindon, Utah) or checked out any of their online engagement then you can attest to all of this awesomeness first-hand. Check out more about their mission, what they believe, and what else makes them so amazingly different here, here and here.
Happy baby shopping!
