Our go-to baby brands

Preparing for our first born — and second for that matter — was an experience in and of itself.¬†And as someone writing a piece about it, it’s ironic to say that even with all of the research we did, we weren’t prepared for what we truly needed. Ultimately, some of the best things we got were during late night Target runs or Amazon prime orders.

We’ve had a lot of questions about what to get from friends who are pregnant for the first time. We finally wrote them all down and wanted to share some things that really helped us through those first few months and beyond. Please note that we are not sponsored by these brands, but we do use affiliate links in our blog.
